George's Cafe Winter Park

Did you know that George's Cafe, well known for their great and large lunches, also serves breakfast Thursday-Sundays?





I first tried George's back when they were catering and take out only running out of a small space on Orange ave in Winter Park, they were well known for their great cookies. They later moved to the plaza on Lee Road and 17-92 and did well there for many years.

Recently they moved to Park Ave in Winter Park to a much bigger space with a great patio.

Go try em out for breakfast, they have grits, eggs benedict, quiche, biscuits and gravy and much more.
