Location: Davenport Diner –Davenport, Florida
Date of Visit: 02/09/2020
Florida Stuffed started off February 2020 with the first restaurant to be visited in Davenport, Florida. Davenport Diner is a good thirty to forty minute drive outside of Orlando depending on traffic. This place was recommended to me by a couple of friends that stay close in the Celebration area and they were right, this place is popular and it is busy. When I arrived approximately 12PM, there was a wait in the lobby and a wait that lingered outside. Since I was alone, I was able to get a seat in less than fifteen minutes after arriving.
This place offers a spacious dining area, plenty of breakfast options and everyone I met there, customers and crew were very friendly. It felt a little awkward for me as I was eating alone and most of the patrons were older but overall, I had a good experience, comfortable seating and food left me with great impressions with good quality and very reasonable prices. This place has a homey atmosphere that keeps you comfortable and prices keep you well under budget here. Very satisfied with food portions. Be sure to check hours as this place is open until 3pm.
Accessibility: Davenport Diner is located at 40230 North US Highway 27 in Davenport, Florida between Holly Hill Tank Road and Park Place Boulevard. Plenty of parking is available near the restaurant and in front. Traffic was moderate in the area at the time of my arrival but no problems getting in or out.
Customer Service: I was greeted upon entry. Do not expect to be seated immediately. After arriving, my name was place on a waiting list but the wait was less than fifteen minutes. I was seated after being called. My server was great, friendly and attentive. She checked on me a few times during my stay. Another server checked on me as well. My order came out in approximately ten minutes.
Dating Scene: Davenport Diner may not be considered an intimate date spot but it is a good spot to visit during the day, with lots of options for those looking for a good breakfast or early lunch. Seating arrangements are comfortable for couples, and both small and large groups.
Lets Get to the Menu: On this visit, I wanted a simple yet filling breakfast. I went with the short stack pancakes (per the recommendation of my server) along with a side of sausage links and an order of smoked sausage with a large orange juice. My order came to $15.90 before tip. The pancakes were great. The short stack includes two pancakes. Very satisfied with portions, the apple topping was done nicely, still had space to add butter and even more sugar with the syrup. Pancakes themselves were very fresh. While the sausage links were good, we know I am more partial to smoked sausage and theirs was great. It was cooked right, and had plenty of flavor. All of this made the perfect ingredients for a filling breakfast.
Restaurant Cleanliness: No issues to report.
Extras: There are a few shops and care facilities in the same strip as the diner. You are approximately ten minutes from Interstate Four.
Forms of Payment Accepted: Cash or credit card.
