Cuisine: American, New American
Best Restaurants for Fall: While brunch may be a big hit, this restaurant is a must for all meals. Open from 11 a.m. through dinner, this place has a massive menu including salads, sandwiches and small plates. There's something for everyone no matter what your dietary restriction is. The restaurant is casual, yet hip and picturesque situated on a lake for a relaxing meal. Next to the restaurant is a market that's combination boutique and community café. You can shop for gifts, home décor, smoothies, coffee or a treat to sweet treat to take home. The market opens at 7 a.m., which allows the perfect time to enjoy the sunrise and the peaceful view.
Outdoor Dining: With a rotating menu of New American cuisine and a romantic, lakeside setting, Canvas has made Lake Nona's rapidly expanding culinary scene tastier and prettier, injecting the Sunshine State's flavorful blend of Southern and Latin American into its Instagram-worthy plates. "Restaurant" may come first in Canvas' name, but let's not forget the "market" portion. It's one part high-end comestible-and-home-goods store, one part breezy cafe. Gifts and foodstuffs abound; they'll even take cooking dinner off your list of to-dos. Just buy it, bring it home and make whoever's eating it happy. (At the very least, you could bring a dessert treat!) The market is open daily from 7 am to 8 pm. Bar opens at 3 pm. The views to go with your wine, beer or cocktail are sublime.
