OOOOOH SO DELICIOUS - LOVE IT
Posted on 11 / 30 / 2012
Might be my new favorite place! (I know I say that about every new place I try, but this really is!) Everything I love about it is mentioned in the header on their website ~ "Local, organic, eco-friendly eatery." It is the most charming place I have ever been. Located in downtown Orlando, just a block off a main drag, it is an old-house-turned-restaurant. The sheer charm of the inside, from the eclectic furniture to the amazing hard-wood floors, to the local art on the walls, is worth a visit. The people running it are just as charming - very nice, accommodating, and quick to explain everything. To say I love the atmosphere is an understatement. I like that they used real plates, glasses, and utensils; no Styrofoam. Unfortunately, I don't live in Orlando so I can't frequent it often.
Let's get on to the food. OUTSTANDING! I only tried one thing, and it was fantastic. I had the Hunny Mustard wrap (cashew encrusted tempeh strips with cucumber, tomato, white onion and tangy hunny mustard dressing). I left a couple things out, and they had no problem making it to order. It comes with 1 side dish and you choose from about 5. The tempeh was just so delicious! Might be best I ever had. The wrap was stuffed full of all these good eats, and it was plenty of food. You definitely don't come away hungry. I found the price very reasonable ($9.75; that was about the most expensive thing I saw). This is also a tea place; I had a glass of iced green tea - which was delicious (free refills).
You order your food at the counter and then it is delivered to your table. There are 2 big rooms inside with cool furniture, as well as plenty of outdoor seating. There is street parking and I didn't have any trouble finding a spot on a busy workday (no meters). There were a lot of people on their computers, so there might be wi-fi.
I will definitely go back when I am in the area, but would probably get the exact same thing. It was too delicious not to get again! LOVE IT.
Visited here again (November, 2012) and had another delicious meal - A wrap stuffed full of veggies and yummy tempeh. I love this place!
