Substantial Sandwiches at 10th Street Produce

What started as a small roadside produce stand has grown into a large greengrocer and deli. Family-owned and operated since 2013, 10th Street Produce grew fast with Osceola County locals and soon moved into the prettiest corner building in Downtown St. Cloud. Because this spot provides a wholesome, big sandwich-style experience, they recently expanded a third time to accommodate inside seating and more local groceries from nearby farms.

You can get any sandwich you want here, stacked up with meat, cheese, and toppings.

There are so many people from New Jersey in St. Cloud, the owners started carrying Taylor Ham for breakfast, so if you need your fix while you’re visiting us from the North, you know where to go! If you’re looking for that deli experience with a big sandwich, cut in half, and wrapped in wax paper to-go, make 10th Street Produce your first stop when exploring St. Cloud! (P.S. If you arrive closer to the “lunch” part of brunch, you can get a Lobster Roll on Fridays.)

Pizza for Breakfast at Phyre GenX Pizzeria & Brewery

Also located off 10th Street in Downtown St. Cloud, you’ll find Phyre GenX Pizzeria & Brewery. With an outdoor patio, this ‘80s, kid-inspired restaurant is the ultimate hangout spot to be “Saved by the Bell” with weekly events like Trivia Thursdays and Karaoke Night.

You’ll want to make sure you stop in on Sundays for the brunch pizzas.

That’s right, Mom - PIZZA FOR BREAKFAST. Everything you’ve been dreaming about on a pillowy crust like your favorite breakfast casseroles and crispy chicken and waffles paired with a spicy Bloody Mary or bottomless mimosas. This spot is perfect for anyone wanting to celebrate all things Generation X.

Live Music and Libations at Island Cloud Grill

Known in town for its live music, Island Cloud Grill has expanded its island-inspired menu to include the brunchy bites that’ll have you singing “It’s five-o’clock somewhere” on your way to town. Chow down on the brunch staples like Eggs Benedict with homemade hollandaise sauce, breakfast bowls topped with anything you can dream up, or a stack of crisp, warm waffles while you listen to all the live music vibes.

The brunch menu is available every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is a great way to get a taste of island time without having to leave Central Florida.

From artisan French toasts to zesty breakfast hashes, the Downtown St. Cloud’s brunch scene blends unique modern flavors with traditional vittles. If you need an iced latte special order, all these spots are within walking distance to a few craft coffee spots like Madilynn’s and John 3:16 Cafe.
