The weekend has arrived and it’s time to wind down. You’ve earned it! What better way to take the week’s edge off than with a round of bottomless mimosas? Lucky for you, nearly no other city in Florida has as many libation-focused brunch restaurants than Orlando. Herein, however, a problem emerges: when there are so many options, how on earth do you decide where to have fun while sipping on some bubbly? Never fret! This article is here to help you decide.
Outpost Neighborhood Kitchen
Bottomless Cocktails: $16
Saturdays & Sundays: 10am – 3pm
The bottomless cocktail option at Outpost claims more than just mimosas under its jurisdiction. You can add red & white sangria, as well as bloody marys, to the list. To sweeten the deal, you can even drop a Boozepop (alcoholic popsicles) in each beverage for $1.50, with flavors ranging from Root Beer Float to Creamsicle. The fun of the cocktail menu is obviously influenced by the delirium found in the brunch entrees. Elk? Venison? Ok! Black garlic prime rib on toast with horseradish mornay? We love that too! The menu even includes hoecakes (think cornbread pancakes) capped with rum brûléed plantains and Left Hand Milk Stout ice cream. This is a perfect way to begin or end the weekend.
The Stubborn Mule
Bottomless Mimosas: $12
Saturdays & Sundays: 11am – 2pm
The appeal here lies in the extended brunch drink menu. You might be thinking, “I’m drinking bottomless mimosas, I don’t need anything else.” You may very well be right, but don’t tell us that after two mimosas you wouldn’t even consider a Brunch Shot of bourbon and maple pepper bacon. Here, at least, you have that option. The food offerings for brunch at The Stubborn Mule range from classic to peculiar. Plates like scallops and grits, or the Coachman – vegetable hash and fried eggs drizzled with cheese fondue – make lovely mimosa counterparts. On the other hand, there’s also funnel cake fried chicken and a pastrami sandwich with dill-Havarti cheese and a Thai peanut-cream sauce.
Café Tu Tu Tango
Bottomless Cocktails: $15
Saturdays & Sundays: 11am – 3pm
Found on International Drive, this is a great location for visitors to the Orlando area. It is also an establishment that is fairly incongruent with its I-Drive counterparts. Tu Tu Tango offers both bottomless mimosas and bloody marys during its brunch hours, as well as delightful small plates prepared in their scratch kitchen. All those small plates, also, are available in an unlimited format for $25. Bites brimming with Central and South American flair like Pionono and Chalupitas inhabit a large part of the menu, while quasi-southern mutant dishes like biscuits and gravy with gator meat have somehow found a home here as well. Café Tu Tu Tango makes no promises about making sense, but a good time is always guaranteed.
Bottomless Mimosas: $10
Sundays: 11am – 3pm
SOCO offers Bottomless mimosas for ten dollars? Come on, you can’t beat that. This brunch spot also appeals to those who prefer other brunch cocktails in large volumes, with bloody marys, bloody caesars and peach palmers available by the pitcher. During brunch hours, the food options at SOCO can fluctuate from safe to sublime. Deviled eggs, granola and house-made pop tarts can be found in the small plates, while entrees include Duck Confit Potato Cakes and crispy fried Quail and Waffles. Perhaps the biggest star of SOCO, however, is the location itself. Nestled cozily within Thornton Park, it’s a stone’s throw away from Lake Eola, one of the most serene sights in all of Orlando.
