Bite 2016: Harp & Celt Irish Pub

by

The odds of underdogs Leicester City winning the English Premier League title might have been 5,000 to 1, but there's one sure bet in Orlando's soccer-obsessed subculture: The full Irish Breakfast at the Harp & Celt will not only pad your gullet for all that mid-morning Guinness at 10 a.m., but you won't have to wait for it nearly as long as you would for a budget-busting brunch at some of the swankier spots downtown.

Family-owned and -operated since 2007, the two-sided pub and restaurant slings black sausages, beans, rashers of bacon, eggs and mushrooms on a platter big enough for the hungriest hooligans. Light eaters can opt for the half-portion to go with a Magners cider (on ice, of course). The Irish Breakfast is only served on Saturday and Sunday mornings, when EPL action is at its best, though now that the season is over and little Leicester has surprised the world, the Harp and Celt is ground zero for fueling up before Orlando City afternoon games — the Irish Breakfast is the best way to stave off post-match hunger and tomorrow's hangover.

25 S. Magnolia Ave., 407-481-2928; $$
