(walking distance from Rollins)
Cafe de France
Barry Levis’ favorite restaurant in Winter Park. Claire and Jim find the service somewhat snooty, but that might just be authentic French.
526 Park Avenue South
Power House Cafe
Some think the strawberry, banana, and peanut butter pita is amazing! Accompany this with one of their famous smoothies and you’re set to go! One of those healthy, yet filling, restaurants on park. $$
111 E Lyman Ave
Park Plaza Gardens
Claire thinks that the restaurant food is overpriced and unimpressive. Bar food is great, though, as are their gin and tonics. Sit on the sidewalk for a true Winter Park experience.
319 South Park Avenue
310 Park South
Julian Chambliss’ favorite. Annabel's choice for dinner before class. The burgers and salads are fabulous (and reasonably priced) and the beer selection vast. Best calamari in town.
310 Park Avenue South
Best for steaks - not so good for other things.
326 Park Avenue South
Claire and friends go to Luma to drink wine and eat appetizers. Try the watermelon ceviche.
290 Park Avenue South
The Wine Room
Classy, but possible to get out inexpensively with a glass of wine and appetizers.
270 Park Avenue South
Pannullo's Italian Restaurant
Nice atmosphere, good food, reasonably priced.
216 Park Avenue South
Good choices for vegetarians. Their fresh bread and humus is amazing. The fact that you can smoke hookah is also a plus.
108 Park Avenue South
Claire’s all-time favorite breakfast spot. If you go one place in Winter Park to eat, make it here.
252 Park Avenue North
Pretty good Thai food. Good vegetarian options.
305 Park Avenue North
Chain restaurant, specializing in bagels, breads, and pastries; serves breakfast and lunch.
329 Park Avenue North
Julian thinks its the best Italian food in town, and it's reasonable. $$
521 Park Avenue South
Circa has a good atmosphere, but weird pseudo Caribbean food. People who stay out later than most historians say that the cocktail bar is worth visiting at night.
358 Park Avenue North
Eola Wine Company
Eola is a fun place to go relax, enjoy the live music and drink some wine. Their cheese plates and tasting options are good too. $$
136 Park Avenue South
Barry took Julian and Claire here to celebrate Julian's tenure.The meat is wonderful, the salads are excellent, and the passion fruit mousse divine.The prices, however, are high!! $$$$
115 East Lyman Avenue
Forget the Seattle-based brewer across the street. The BEST coffee in town is at Palmano's; also serving breakfast and lunch.
333 Park Avenue South
Authentic Cuban Cafe
This restaurant is owned and operated by a very cute, young Cuban couple, who do a great job. Ask for their pulled pork on a salad - delicious!
133 East Morse Blvd.
Fresh-baked French goods and coffee. Who could ask for anything more?
120 East Morse Blvd.
(two blocks north and two blocks east of Rollins; ten minute walk from Rollins, short drive from Best Western)
Claire says that the atmosphere is great, but the food mediocre. Go to Trattoria Toscana if you want Italian food.
240 N. Pennsylvania Avenue
Traditional French cooking with all the calories that entails.... $$$
544 W. New England Avenue
Locals say, and the gourmets in the History department agrees: "You can have a good sandwich for cheap here or have a bottle of wine and drop a hundred bucks as well. Both meals would be great and this is one of the few places in town that can pull this off.”
