Awesome Food! Made my taste buds sing!

As a fairly new Vegan struggling to find restaurants in central Florida, I was delighted to stumble upon this gem in Mt Dora. Not only is it a great Vegan restaurant - it's simply a great restaurant!
I ordered the Heirloom Lasagna that came with a Cleopatra (caesar) salad. Instead of noodles, the lasagna was made with zucchini. It was FANTASTIC! The dressing on the salad had the flavor of caesar salad and was topped with buckwheat groats which provided a nice crunch.
The restaurant is on the second floor of a building containing other tenants so you have to search to find it, but once inside the clean, modern decor provides a relaxing ambience. Our waitress was attentive and eager to share information about the food and the way it was prepared.
The obvious attention and care that went into the food preparation means that this is not the place to eat if you want fast, inexpensive food. Having said that the wait (20 minutes) was worth it and I felt I received value for my money. If price is an object, be aware that the entrees range between $13 and $19. Even sandwiches cost $13 or $14.
Vitality Bistro also has a wine list - all organic. While not an extensive list, my Cabernet and my husband's Syrah were both quite good.
We have to drive 45 minutes to dine in the restaurant. It's well worth it.
exceptional food, friendly staff, nice ambience
