International Drive Restaurant Guide

Written By Carlos Braga

The I- Drive, as it is known, is one of Orlando's main avenues. And since everything is relatively close by, knowing the best restaurants on International Drive will ensure you have good dining options during your trip.

But the main reason for all this movement is the huge amount of tourist services that the avenue offers, including hotels, bars and restaurants.

It is no wonder that many Brazilians usually stay there, due to the ease of commuting to eat at different times of the day.

In this International Drive restaurant guide, we've selected some of the options you'll find on International Drive in Orlando.

We separate by Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner, to facilitate your search for the ideal meal, considering values, type of cuisine and other evaluations.

If you need it, don't forget to visit our post about what to do on International Drive.

Breakfast on International Drive

Among the many experiences that a trip to Orlando provides, one of them is the opportunity to have an American-style breakfast.

Many hotels offer breakfast, but not all. If you're staying on International Drive Orlando, several options are available and close by to get your day off to a great start. 

A good American-style breakfast is offered at the franchises I-Hop and Dennys at very affordable prices.

They are open 24 hours a day, which is great for those who want to wake up very early to enjoy the day at the park.

At the I-Hop, International House of Pancakes, we can eat pancakes, those American pancakes we see piled up in movies. On the menu you will also find the classic combos with bacon, eggs and sausage accompanied by French toast. 

For a leisurely breakfast the ?Hash House A Go Go? is an option with its delicious Waffles in generous sizes.

Despite these delights, you can end up missing the good bread on the plate in Orlando. Rest assured, because Yummy Bread Bakery serves a delicious Brazilian-style breakfast, including pão de queijo, som and espresso.

Mexican cuisine on International Drive is well represented by the hearty, affordable meals of the money, in desserts such as Chocolate Piñata from Uncle Julio's Mexican From Scratch or in the vegan options of Pepes Cantina I-Drive.

Rice, beans and steak may be missed, but the nostalgia passes in the meals of the Café Mineiro Brazilian Steakhouse, at the Tony's Brazilian Grill or at the Buffet Camilla?s.
