Featured Winter Park Restaurant - Carvers Bakery Cafe

Carvers Bakery Cafe - Winter Park
Carvers Bakery Cafe specializes in breakfast and lunch using only the freshest local ingredients. Their extra attention to the best ingredients, creating most everything in-house, and their reasonable prices make Carvers Bakery Cafe a local favorite in Winter Park.
 
NOTE: Carvers Bakery Cafe recently moved to a new location in King's Crossing, with over double the seating capacity! They are much easier to find, right on Highway 40 next to Fontenot's.

The menu at Carvers Bakery features a selection of excellent Benedicts, Egg Scrambles, Southwestern breakfast plates, and specialties like Biscuits and Gravy and Corned Beef Hash. The lunch menu consists of wraps, salads, burgers, sandwiches and soups, all made from scratch.
 
Carvers decided early on that if they were going to be here they didnt want to serve cheap or pre-prepared food. When they took over the bakery they got rid of all shortenings, food colorings, additives, conditioners, etc and now make all their pastries, breads, muffins and bagels from scratch with grade A butter, natural starter, flour, yeast, sugar, salt, whole eggs ...... Simple and natural ingredients.

Their sauces, soups, stews and dressings are their own recipes, they hand roll their bagels, hand squeeze their orange and grapefruit juices themselves. While this is more labor intensive it gives their awesome employees a tremendous sense of pride and accomplishment, and this enthusiasm is obvious to their guests a fact attested to by returning visitors year after year.

Carvers is now at their new location. You can now find them at King's Crossing, with over double the seating capacity. No more long lines!
 
Carvers Bakery Cafe serves breakfast and lunch every day from 7am to 2pm. (hours are subject to change)

Random Review: Rise and Shine

During ordering our server suggested we go to the neighboring gas station for water so she would not need to charge us 50 cents per cup. Before everyone in our party finished eating, the owner demanded we consolidate our group to fewer tables citing the need to make money as his rationale. A member of our party jested, I thought you already made money on us, since we had paid our bill, including a 20% large group gratuity. Unaware of this additional charge, many had tipped additionally. In an infuriated tone, the owner loudly announced to all present, I guess this guy will be paying for all your meals. I suppose hes gonna pay the rent. Though all in our party had paid for their portion of the tab to her individually, the server returned, claiming there were insufficient funds to cover the entirety of the bill, though she was unable to identify any unpaid items. The excess charges were paid to avoid further conflict. My hope in writing this review is to save other potential customers from having a similar experience.
