WELCOME TO Windermere


Think Orlando is all theme parks and mouse ears? Think again. With a booming culinary scene and an ever-growing art community, it made perfect sense to open a second location within our O.G. stomping grounds. Serving as our latest research & development kitchen, Hawkers Windermere is often the first to see the new noms our chefs are dreaming up. Want to try for yourself? Check out Hawkers brunch – exclusively available at our Windermere location.

Looking for a unique and vibrant private dining experience for your next shindig? Our one-of-a-kind, VIP dining room is the perfect spot to host your next party, event or meeting. For more information on reserving this special room, please call us at (407) 583-6334.

“You haven’t had amazing fried rice until you’ve tried the Basil Fried Rice here. It’s a flavor I’ve never tasted before, and I can’t get enough of it. Not to mention, the cocktails are absolutely incredible!”
– Aleah M., Yelp
