So why is Oxford Exchange so beloved? To start, the aesthetic. Every square inch of this restaurant is begging to be photographed. The scenery sets the stage for your exquisite meal.
Start with the large, warm cinnamon rolls served with strawberries, and a warm cream cheese glaze. The poppyseed pancakes with a lemon maple syrup are a fabulous, and oh-so-Florida dish that you need to try.
Looking for something Southern flair? Order up the stone ground yellow grits with aged white cheddar, crispy bacon, chives, maple drizzle.
The chorizo breakfast tacos filled with eggs, manchego, jalapeño pico de gallo, cumin aioli, micro greens are revelatory.
