We love to eat on the back porch of this neighborhood restaurant in Lake Mary. The food is down home cooking, served in generous portions by friendly and competent staff. They made accommodation for a large family luncheon and everyone loved their meal. Love this place.

Appleton's was fully decorated for St. Patrick's day when we arrived for breakfast for the first time and that made me smile. The food, eggs benedict and a bacon and cheese omelet, was delicious. We really liked the home fries too. Service is very friendly and efficient. Reasonable prices.

The cost is on a par with Denny’s or IHOP, maybe a little less if you pay cash to get the discount, but the food is better than casual dining chains, it’s breakfast comfort plus. I’ve eaten there several times, no bad meals at all, eggs, hash browns and pancakes on the “very good” end of the scale, and the... More

Tried this place because of the reviews. The food was great. I had the breakfast bowl with sausage. I highly recommend it. My partner, had a typical 2eggs breakfast. Coffee was hot and plentiful. Well worth your time. Hint they give you 5% off if you pay cash.

There were three of us for breakfast. The place was packed and there was a large group also waiting to be seated. The employees were quick to get us seated. The food, including omelets, home fries, eggs, and toast were all delicious. It was very busy, but the waitresses were very attentive and we're always hustling to satisfy everyone. A... More

The decorations for Christmas are way over the top, but the food is off the hook. We had occasion to be in Lake Mary and hadn't eaten yet as we passed Appleton's. The business center it is part of has quite good curb appeal, so on a whim we u-turned and pulled in. The Christmas decorations are pretty overwhelming. And... More

Very quaint, all decked out for the holidays. Friendly service and reasonable prices. If you like Greek, get the Greek omelette. Best I've ever had!

Came for breakfast on a Saturday morning with my wife and our friend. Like others, I have seen it from the road, but never tried it till now....Mistake! We had a great experience. We got there fairly early so there was no wait. The service was excellent the whole time. I ordered an omelet that was heavenly! Everything was great... More

I've passed the restaurant countless times and after eating there this past Sunday wish I could've stopped and eaten there everytime. The food was delicious home cooked style breakfast and the menu had many items I look forward to returning to try. The outside patio looked nice if you like dining that way. It was busy and we had a... More

When we first moved to Lake Mary in the late 70's this was the only place to eat. Still steady as a rock. Just plain ol' good food and friendly Lake Mary home town service!
