Located inside one of the many “hidden garden” courtyards along Park Avenue in downtown Winter Park, The Bistro on Park Avenue is a beautiful gem waiting to be discovered. A few friends and I decided to visit one morning for a Sunday brunch and enjoy some omelettes and eggs benedicts. The Bistro on Park Avenue has an outside patio dining area, as well as a sun room, covered inside area, and an oyster bar.

For an appetizer, I ordered half a dozen fried oysters, which came out quite tasty and crunchy with a nice remoulade sauce accompaniment.

I ordered the Smoked Salmon Benedict with a side of breakfast potatoes. I enjoyed the smoked salmon part, but found the eggs to have been overdone (no longer runny) and the English muffin was a bit dry. Overall, the food was enjoyable though a bit overpriced it seemed. I would probably have to return to try some more of their offerings before making a final verdict.

After our brunch, we decided to walk down along Park Avenue to explore some of the shops and bakeries for a little something sweet after our meal. Sweet Traditions French Bakery and Cafe was, luckily, a few short steps away and we picked up a little almond croissant from the place to share. The croissant was scrumptious and sweet with the yellow almond paste slathered in the center, dusted with some confectionary sugar.
