The Daybreak Diner (Orlando)

Posted on May 8th, 2017 · American Breakfast Orlando · 4 Comments »

***** The Daybreak Diner, 3335 Curry Ford Road, Oralndo, Florida 32806, (407) 898-8338.

For our purposes, we’re gonna call The Daybreak Diner in Orlando “an out of sight, out of mind” mom & pop diner joint.

Jeff Eats first told you guys about- The Daybreak Diner way-back on 9/18/12…and the truth be told, I hadn’t been back until this past Thursday (5/4/17)- when Jeff Eats and Mrs. Jeff Eats did breakfast there!

Long story short, breakfast absolutely killed. Delicious food, reasonable prices, big portions and terrific service!

Now just between you guys and Jeff Eats, I thought that 2017’s The Daybreak Diner was way better than 2012’s The Daybreak Diner! The point, this food “reviewing” gig is purely a subjective thing, you know- what Jeff Eats thinks is sweet, you may think is bitter!

Anyway, The Daybreak Diner which is open Monday-Friday 6am-8pm, Saturday 6am-2pm, closed on Sunday is “probably”😜 a real good joint for you “mom & pop” diner fans to know about!

*****c The Daybreak Diner, 3335 Curry Ford Road, Oralndo, Florida 32806, (407) 898-8338.

The Daybreak Diner…”mom & pop” diner located in Orlando.

I’ll bet you a buck, that without ever setting foot in the door, you guys know exactly what The Daybreak Diner looks like…let’s just say “formicasville” tables/booths. You can check menu/prices at www.daybreakdiner.org.

You regular Jeff Eats’ readers know, that “mom & pop” diners have a special place in my heart. Personally, I’d rather eat breakfast/lunch in a neighborhood diner, than in a bagel joint, fast food restaurant, chain operation. You guys gotta appreciate that most of us-folks of the 50’s-60’s were raised on diners—anyway…

A week or so ago, I was up-in Orlando and came across the Daybreak Diner. All kinds of breakfast stuff, appetizers, salads, soups, burgers, sandwiches, subs/wraps, meat/fish/chicken “meals”- desserts. A quick taste “test” netted Jeff Eats…western omelet with hashbrowns ($6.59), bacon cheeseburger and french fries ($8.50), chicken salad on white toast ($4.95)—everything was just right. Just so we are straight—Was The Daybreak Diner the best “diner” I’ve ever eaten in? Nope! But as “expected”…my party was served decent enough diner food by a super pleasant waitress…suffice it to say, The Daybreak Diner held-up its end of the bargain…the food, the decor, the vibe–just what the “recipe” called for.

So, you Orlandoians and non-locals now know about a mom & pop” diner where you can catch a decent enough breakfast, lunch or dinner.

The Daybreak Diner is open Monday-Friday 6am-8pm, Saturday 6am-2pm, closed on Sunday.

The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water

* The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water.

Here’s a “public service” announcement for you guys!

Look! Jeff Eats really has no idea if drinking warm lemon water is good or for that matter, bad for you- what I do know is as my late Grandma Anna use to say, “It couldn’t hurt.”

Just between you guys and Jeff Eats, since I first told you about “The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water” way-back on 9/8/14- I’ve been swigging the “stuff” daily…

Jeff Eats is thinking that Grandma Anna was right, “It couldn’t hurt.”

* The Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water.

Jeff Eats just finished reading “16 Health Benefits Of Drinking Warm Lemon Water” on foodmatters.tv and I thought that you guys might enjoy the story.

Nothing for nothing, I’m thinking- that if this warm lemon water -thing is legit–I’m in…seems kinda easy to do!

Now, if I understand this-deal correctly, all I gotta do is down my Five Guys’ cheeseburger and fries with a warm glass of lemon water and I’ll have done my body a real-solid!

Like I said 2 seconds ago, I’m in!

One final thought, if stuff like watermelon, blueberries, lemons, are “so good” for you-how come most people drop dead in their 70s and 80s anyway? Also- how come a ton of “those” people who order Water With Lemon- still look and feel like crap? I guess the water wasn’t warm enough!
