Dining Alone Outside of Parks

Hi everyone, I'm looking for a little guidance for a dining issue that I don't often have. DSis and I are taking a girls' trip to WDW in a couple of weeks. On our last day, she has an early flight back to NY, but I won't be leaving until the evening. This means I have time for a late breakfast or early lunch on my own. I do not have a park ticket for the day, but there are so many options outside of the parks, and I haven't had the opportunities to try lunches at them (only dinners at some). I'm also wondering which ones might be good for dining alone. What do you think?

I voted for the Grand Floridian Cae, but really, you could eat at any place you chose. However, I enjoy the food at the GFC and I know it's not the sort of place DH would feel comfortble at (it's a little too fur-fru for him, probably not for most men, but for him-think Tim the Tool Man Taylor or Last Man Standing). So I know that solo is the only way I'll ever get to eat there.

This is a good point! DH will usually go along with whatever I plan. Maybe I should ask him where he's NOT interested in going on our next trip!
