Sundays are for rest and relaxation, right? We think so! Whether you want to lounge around or go out and do something adventurous and fun, Old Towne Orange has everything that you need!
If you love to eat, you’re spending your Sunday in the right place. Our favorite place to brunch for Sunday Funday is at Citrus City Grille. Without a doubt, they have the most delicious buffet style brunch, served with bottomless Mimosas and/or Bloody Mary’s. They have a “make your own” Bloody Mary bar, where you can put in exactly the ingredients that you want. This also makes the experience more fun. Their brunch includes pancakes, french toast, bagels and lox and more! This is a must try brunch location in Orange.
Another fun and new location is Watson’s Soda Fountain and Cafe. They offer an expansive breakfast menu including sweet and savory options. Watson’s also serves cocktails with breakfast including 3 different Bloody Mary options as well as classic Mimosa’s.
For a different Sunday Funday experience, take a cooking class from Le Gourmet Culinary! They offer a variety of classes that will teach you the tricks you need in order to prepare gourmet meals in your own kitchen! Upcoming Sunday classes include: Molecular Gastronomy II, French Macarons, Contemporary Steak House, Cheesecake Workshop, and Sauces 101. For their entire event listing, you can click here. Check out this fun video that will show you exactly the experience you will get from one of these classes!
If you’re in the mood to walk around, head to the Plaza in Old Towne Orange and do some antique shopping. Visit stores like the Tea Leaf Cottage, The Potting Shed, Orange Antique Mall, Country Roads Antiques or Chapman Antique Mall. Need some new clothes? There are great clothing stores in the circle such as Cocorose Boutique, Nectar, and Laurenly. Image below is new arrivals at Laurenly!
When you just feel like hanging out at home, we have some great recipes and games that you can play to stay entertained. For lunch or dinner, make some homemade stuffed pizza rolls. Heck with Totino’s, have some fun and make them yourself! All you need is Pizza Dough (store bought or homemade) Pepperoni 6 Mozzarella String Cheese Sticks 4 tbsp Butter 2-3 cloves of minced Garlic, 1 tbsp fresh chopped Parsley. For the dipping sauce, use 1- 8oz can Tomato Sauce 1 tsp dried Italian Seasoning 1/2 tsp Garlic Powder. Lay out the dough, cut into squares, put the pepperoni and cheese sticks on each square, then roll up the individual squares. Put them in a square baking dish, top with butter, garlic and parsley then bake at 350 degrees until golden brown!
To complement this nice snack, grab some brews from Provisions Market in the circle. Enjoy outside in the sun or from the couch watching your favorite Netflix series.
