The following is a list of restaurants in the Orlando area that are open for Sunday Brunch - some are open on Saturdays as well. These restaurants are stand-alone dining venues that are not contained within a hotel (that's another list). A couple have more than one location in the Orlando area and only Brio is part of a national chain of restaurants.
My list currently only contains 6 restaurants, but I'm always looking for more to add - log on to the Orlando Forum to share your experiences of the following or suggest a favorite that isn't listed here.
