“White table cloths upstairs and casual dining downstairs. Good wine and imported foods shop. Everything is authentic and good. Take a walk around Lake Lily after lunch or dinner. We enjoy the roasted 1/2 chicken and fresh vegetables in the deli. Everything is fabulous upstairs. Good for both business, romance and special occasions.”

“It would be very difficult for us to leave this gem off of our list of best local food. We discovered it upon ‘Googling’ the phrase “best burger place in Orlando” and the results were accurate. Not only are their burgers eccentric and unique but they are wonderfully delicious. The Sweet Potato Tots are heavenly and we would highly recommend any of their burgers. The Cronie Burger (featuring two full cronuts for buns) is great if you’re seeking something overly indulgent and borderline insane or the Drunken Monk Burger which has Angry Orchard onion jam and a pretzel bun is a must. ”

“If you don't want to endure the long wait at Briar Patch, I'd go here for breakfast. In fact, Bagel King is my favorite breakfast spot in town. Quick service, big menu (everything is excellent), and good prices.”

“One of the best Jazz venues in Orlando... also, it is one of the only nightly jazz clubs in the city. It is a local jewel that most tourists don't know about. The small venue fills up extremely quickly, so make a reservation on their website early, or you won't get a seat.”

“Very tasty Greek/Mediterranean spot that's right around the corner. It's a grab-and-go kiosk-type restaurant with no indoor seating, but you can grab a drink at the Copper Rocket Pub next door and they'll bring your food there if you prefer.”
