Current best Sunday brunch?

The last search result is a few years old so, as we're in Orlando and thinking about Sunday, where is recommended at the moment?

TIA

The general consensus among Central Florida foodies is that the best brunch is La Coquina at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. However, it is expen$$$ive. Read more about it here http://tinyurl.com/d2otnz.

IIRC, La Coquina is closed. The hotel is being refurbished and I'm not sure if it's ever reopening.

Hmmm. There appears to be some confusion here. Their website http://grandcypress.hyatt.com/hyatt/...ants/index.jsp says "Spend your Easter with a special brunch at LaCoquina...."

Also, highly regarded Orlando restaurant critic, Scott Joseph said "Here's a list of places I know about that are serving on April 12. La Coquina: Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, 1 Grand Cypress Blvd., Orlando; 10:30a.m. 6 p.m.; 407-239-3853; $69/$34.50. The regular fabulous brunch."

Perhaps it is best to simply phone them (407-239-3853) to see if they are open.

For a listing of other good brunch options, check out Scott's blog: http://www.scottjosephorlando.com/fo..._stuff/brunch/

Well, then I stand corrected. Thank you. Perhaps I'm thinking that it will be closed after the reno.

It's not the best food wise, but it is highly entertaining - the House of Blues Sunday Gospel Brunch

It is a fun, well run brunch. Something you do once or twice.
