Where to Find Brunch at Disney World

Share This!

Did you get up at 6:30 and scarf down a granola bar en route to a 7:30 Early Entry? After 3 hours in the parks, heading out to a lazy brunch just as the weekend crowds (and the heat) start to peak might be just the ticket. In this article we’ll run down which restaurants serve brunch at Disney World, and cover some of the dishes at each that you can only get at brunch.

Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’

Art Smith’s Disney Springs eatery is known for its Southern-inspired dishes, particularly the fried chicken. The brunch menu features a few standards from the lunch and dinner menus including Bee Haven Bay Fried Green Tomatoes, Church Lady Deviled Eggs, and Fried Chicken & Doughnuts.

Most of the menu though is a brunch-only lineup, including Biscuits and House-made Donuts on the starter menu, followed by entrees such as

Short Rib Hash
Two sunny side up eggs over our short rib hash with grilled corn succotash, potatoes, onions, red bell and Fresno peppers for a bit of a kick. Served with a cheddar cheese drop biscuit and choice of side.

Hush Puppy Benedict
Chef Art’s spin on the classic, with house made hush puppy cakes topped with fried chicken tenders, poached eggs, griddled country ham and pimento hollandaise.

Hallelujah Biscuit
Open-faced biscuit topped with Chef Art’s famous fried chicken, two over easy eggs, pimento cheese, pecan-smoked bacon and smothered in sawmill gravy.

alongside standards such as French Toast or the Grand-Daddy Plate with eggs, biscuits, and bacon. Not forgotten is the liquor side, with several brunch-only cocktails like the Blueberry Mimosa and a Sweet Tea Shine.

Brunch is served Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12:55 p.m., and Homecomin’ is one of the most sought-after brunch reservations. We recommend booking ASAP if you’d like to try it out.

City Works Eatery & Pour House

City Works features an eclectic brew pub menu with Tex-Mex and smokehouse touches. Favorites from the shareables and burger menus such as Kung Pao Cauliflower, City Works Burger, and Filet Mignon Sliders are joined on the weekends by more breakfast-oriented fare such as

Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2:55 p.m., and reservations are often available within the same week. As with all Disney Springs restaurants, don’t forget to look on Open Table if you can’t find anything through Disney’s restaurant search.

House of Blues Restaurant & Bar

House of Blues in Disney Springs’ West Side is generally a solid pick for its meat-focused menu. But on weekends, brunch trots out an entirely new set of dishes. Regular standards such as Steak & Eggs, Breakfast Burrito, and Barnyard Breakfast (eggs, sausage, home fries & toast) are found next to offerings such as

Pig Grits & Shrimp
Cheddar grits, bacon-wrapped shrimp, chimichurri, crisped basil

Morning Smash Burger
Two smash patties, cheddar, thick-cut bacon, bacon ketchup, bacon aioli, fried egg, brioche bun, honey sriracha sauce

Mixed greens, spiced pecans, seasonal berries, goat cheese, champagne vinaigrette.

The drinks menu features bottomless Mimosas or Bloody Marys, and a Morning Mule.

Pre-COVID the House of Blues Gospel Brunch with live music was a popular event, but it has not yet returned and reservations are often available within the same week. Brunch is served Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 1:55 p.m.

Maria and Enzo’s Ristorante

This trattoria-style restaurant with an airline theme serves classic Italian fare. The brunch menu is a bit of a mashup, with the entire Antipasti, Insalate, and Pasta sections from the weekday lunch menu joined by select Secondi from the dinner menu such as Pollo alla Parmigiana and Bistecca alla Griglia. There’s also a selection of dishes that are only available at brunch, including

Crunch Toast
Cornflake crusted brioche, nutella mascarpone, strawberry compote

Frittata al Forno
Classic Italian baked omelet, roasted mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, mozzarella, parmigiano, broccolini, cipollini, ricotta, fontina, toasted schiacciata bread

The beverage menu features Bottomless Mimosas, Bellinis, or Rossinis in addition to a Breakfast Margarita.

Maria & Enzo’s serves brunch on Saturdays and Sundays from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., making this one of the latest-running brunches at WDW. Reservations are often available within the same week.

Olivia’s Cafe

Tucked away in Disney’s Old Key West Resort, Olivia’s Cafe is widely regarded as a sleeper pick for great food. It’s one of the few restaurants on this list that serves breakfast. That’s reflected in the brunch menu which contains some favorites from the breakfast menu such as Banana Bread French Toast and the Sombrero Omelet as well as a selection of items from the lunch menu including Miss Vickie’s Veggie Burger.

Chicken and Waffles at Olivia’s Brunch

The relatively few just-for-brunch items fuse the two meals with offerings that meld elements of both meals:

Crab Cake-Eggs Benedict
Two-Poached Eggs and Two-Pan Fried Crab Cakes on an English Muffin with Key Lime Hollandaise and Olivia’s Breakfast Potatoes

Shrimp and Grits
Sautéed Shrimp over Parmesan Grits with a Roasted Tomato-Red Pepper Vinaigrette

Chicken and Waffles
Buttermilk Fried Chicken and Sweet Potato Waffles with Bacon Jam, Fresh Berries and Maple Syrup

The drink menu features the Loaded Key West Bloody Mary and Parrot Punch from the regular breakfast menu, plus a brunch-only Olivia’s Eye Opener.

Olivia’s brunch starts bright and early at 7:30 a.m. on the weekends, and is served through 2 p.m. Reservations are often available in the same week.

Raglan Road Irish Pub & Restaurant

Raglan Road’s regular lunch menu boasts a few breakfast items that are available until noon, and some of these, including the Full Irish have made their way to the brunch menu. A number of other popular items from the lunch menu are also found at brunch, including the Worth the Wait Beef Sandwich and their well-regarded Fish & Chips. In fact, the menu is divided into “Starty Stuff”,”Brunchy Stuff”, and “Lunchy Stuff” sections, and everything found under Starty Stuff and Lunchy Stuff can be found on the weekday lunch menu.

Worth the Wait Beef Sandwich

So what’s only for brunch?

Salmon Royalty
Irish-style Foleys smoked salmon, poached eggs, sautéed spinach, caper hollandaise on Irish soda bread

All This… And Eggs On Top
Pulled slow braised beef, potato hash with sautéed mushrooms, green onions, mushroom ketchup topped with 2 sunny side up eggs

The Anglo Irish
Eggs benedict with sliced Irish ham, wilted spinach on a brioche muffin pullman bread topped with hollandaise

The beverage menu doesn’t boast any unique items for brunch either. Brunch is served from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends, but it might be worth your while to compare the brunch and lunch menus and decide whether one of the three dishes above is worth giving up some of the dishes on the lunch menu that didn’t make it over to brunch. Reservations at Raglan Road can often be found within the same week for either brunch or lunch.

STK Orlando

STK, in Disney Springs’ Landing, serves … steak. And in fact, all of the steak on the regular lunch menu can be found on the brunch menu as well, with a couple of additional Surf ‘n’ Turf options at brunch. The Salads and Starters are also the same, including the Baby Gem Caesar, the Bigeye Tuna Tartare, and STK’s version of Crispy Calamari.

STK's filet with bearnaise sauceAmidst those popular items, the 8 items in the entree section are found only at brunch, including

Smoked Pork Belly Benedict
maple glazed bacon – shishito peppers – poached eggs – hollandaise – toasted english muffin – chili flakes

Lobster & Eggs Benedict
lobster – baby spinach – poached eggs – caviar hollandaise – toasted english muffin

Cinnamon French Toast
brioche – berries – cream cheese icing – maple syrup

Truffle Steak and Egg
wagyu flat iron 8oz – fried egg – shaved truffle – crispy potatoes – truffle buttered brioche

Also available at brunch: Bottomless Mimosa or Bloody Mary.

STK brunch is from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on weekends, and reservations are often available in the same week.

Wine Bar George

I am always surprised how often there are reservations available for next-day or within the week dining at Wine Bar George, given that it’s rated #5 out of all WDW table service restaurants based on survey data from TouringPlans users. Maybe it’s partly because the regular menu is mostly small plates with relatively few full-size entrees. That shouldn’t be a put-off at brunch though; the small plates are mostly off the menu at brunch and the entree section increases in size to make up the difference.

Crispy Mac & Cheese Bites at Wine Bar George

In addition to the Charcuterie and Cheese Boards, you’ll find the following brunch specialties and more.

Wine Country Omelet
artichoke, sugar snap peas, olive & tomato medley, Havarti

French Toast
brioche, mascarpone, caramel sauce

Fried Chicken Biscuit
Pimento cheese, bacon relish, sunny side egg

The beverage menu is a highlight (as you might guess from the name), and includes a few brunch-only cocktails such as the Paloma and the Aperol Spritz.

Brunch at Wine Bar George runs from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays, with reservations often available a few days in advance.

Wolfgang Puck Bar & Grill

The brunch menu at Wolfgang Puck contains a number of items from the regular lunch menu, including a selection of pizzas (with a smoked salmon option for brunch only) and the popular Chicken Schnitzel. There are quite a few special-for-brunch-only items though, including

Chicken schnitzel
Wolfgang Puck’s Chicken Schnitzel

Smashed Avocado Toast
Poached Egg, Burrata, Multi Grain Bread

Crispy Florida Shrimp
spicy honey mustard, lime

Mesquite Grilled NY Strip
charred asparagus, roasted tomato

Fried Chicken & Waffles
blueberry compote, maple honey butter

Brunch-only cocktails include a Bloody Mary, Strawberry Bellini, and Bottomless Mimosa.

Wolfgang Puck’s brunch menu is available on weekends from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with reservations often to be had on short notice, within the same week or only a few days in advance.

    Thanks for this – I didn’t realize there were so many brunch places at Disney Springs! Plancha at the Four Seasons Golf Club has an excellent Sunday Brunch as well.

    I am really disappointed that it’s so hard to find brunch on a weekday. There must be so many people on holiday that search for brunch during the week. We usually spend the last day before flying home at Disney Springs but, unless we are flying home on a weekend, the only place we can find to have breakfast on a weekday at Disney Springs us the Earl of Sandwich.

      Hi Ruth – in the US, brunch is typically not a weekday meal – it’s not only Disney where you’ll find the lack. I suspect that a lot of your difficulty finding weekday breakfast options in Disney Springs (as opposed to at the resorts) has to do with when the bulk of the stores open; buses don’t go to Disney Springs from the resorts in the morning either. But I could be wrong about that.

    Homecomin is a fabulous brunch…. bonus for us, we were on the dining plan at the time and the server insisted brunch came with dessert! (I read the fine print… I don’t think it does!) but she sent us home with two slices of that hummingbird cake to go… this was years ago and I still think about that cake!

    The Banana Bread French Toast at Olivia’s is the ultimate example of dessert for breakfast. It’s fantastic, but in 4 tries I’ve yet to finish it all (and I can eat a lot when I put my mind to it). Worse yet, I usually just head back to my room to sleep it off and there’s 2/3 of the whole day gone.
    I’d do it again though.

      I will have to try it when I’m there in August! It’s been on my list … but there are so many good places to eat at WDW that it’s easy to get distracted from your list. 🙂
