Best Things to Eat in OrlandoHow do these rankings work?
The classic “Tavern” Burger comes topped with house-made tomato bacon jam and is the perfect size to just pick up with both hands and devour without any cutlery. A friendly bar with a regular crowd and some great happy hour offers. Simply put, it’s a fun place to spend time in.
Pizza Bruno is a classic Neapolitan-style pizzeria with dough that takes 48 hours to prove with the pizza itself then being cooked in just 90 seconds.

Sweet tooth? You won’t want to miss what may be some of the best vegan doughnuts in town, a Valhalla Bakery doughnut. With flavours like PB-Pretzel, classic glaze, or their Fruity Pebbles-topped doughnuts, the only hard part is choosing just one.
White Wolf Cafe & Bar is an award-winning, gourmet bistro serving breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner.
The venue itself is what makes the place so special with a unique look and buzzing atmosphere. The sort of place as soon as you walk in you know you are going to be well fed. For something special and unique try their eggs benedict with shrimp.
This is a no-frills, all-flavour showstopper of a restaurant. If you want a serious feast full of authentic island tastes, this is the place for you. No wonder it’s one of the best Puerto Rican restaurants in Orlando.
Service is fast, portions are big, and the mofongo stuffed with chicken is out of this world. Grillers ticks all the boxes.
