Snacks & Treats

If you live in the USA you will already be familiar with most of the names of these businesses and how the system works, be patient with us as we try to explain them all to our international visitors.

As we indicated in our introduction to this section, categorizing these restaurants is not going to be easy. So please bear with us...

This more generalized subject heading may take us to a local sandwich shop, a popular ice cream parlour or one of the several donut ( doughnut) shops of the area.

Sandwich Shops - Often a healthier eating choice...

Ask anyone in the area - "where would be a good place to get a sandwich?" Most would answer - the many Subway Sandwich Shops dotted along 192.

Largest of the US sandwich chains there always seems to be one of these right around any corner. 

Hungry Howie's is another popular choice among Florida Residents and can be found nearer to the Kissimmee City Center.

One of the lesser-known sellers of sandwiches are actually inside the local Publix grocery stores. Here you can have a custom sandwich or 'sub' made-up right before your eyes. Just go to the deli section to make your selection

- What is a 'sub'?

Breakfast Goodies

Something fast and affordable? Then two places come to mind...

Krispy Kreme Donuts & Dunkin Donuts.

Both businesses specialize in... donuts and serve them throughout the day.

Nationally, Dunkin Donuts seems to be the larger of the two and you will find more of these located throughout the area.

Krispy Kreme donuts has just opened its first local outlet at the junction with Polynesian Blvd. Here you can see the donuts being made and glazed, right before your eyes. In fact you will find the Krispy Kreme Brand for sale at many of the area Grocery Stores including Publix. They also supply some of the area hotels.

So, if your snacking on a donut at your hotel and you feel it's one of the best you ever had, more than likely it came from here.

If you can't choose between the two, best bet is to try them both, then go for brisk walk!

Ice Cream Parlours

These include Baskin-Robbins generally offered at the Dunkin Donut Shops throughout the area, Dairy Queen Restaurants (long an American favourite) or perhaps a visit to the Twistee Treat Ice Shop just east of Hwy 535. Look for the building shaped like an ice cream cone...

A little further down the road and directly in front of the Osceola Square Mall is the Friendly's Restaurant, specializing in ice cream and other American fare. This may be a good place to keep in mind following a movie at the nearby Osceola Square East and West Movie theatres.

Root Beer

Keeping with specialties, a favourite of ours is A & W Root Beer and Cream Soda.

Originally, the A & W Brand resulted in one of the most popular roadside drive-ins, peaking in the 50's and 60's.

A few can still be found, one at 8001 S. Orange Blossom Trail or in the food court located at Travelodge Hotel directly across from Old Town.

This brand can also be found in any of the areas grocery stores.

If you've never tried it, do yourself a favour - it's a real treat!

Root Beer Floats, an 'All-American' favourite is a delightful mixture that brings together the ingredients of both ice cream and this beverage. Seems to work better than when made with Cola.
