Eat, Drink and Be Merry

I love food. I love to eat it. I love to smell it. I love to look at it. Simply put I just love food, and the older I get the more my body is reflecting that love. But that’s fine — I’ll just have to start eating smarter.

Now unless I’m out-of-the-loop Orlando isn’t necessarily known for it’s wide variety of “food” or specialty “health” cuisine. So eating smart can often be difficult if you are constantly on-the-go (like so many of us are today), but it’s not impossible. In fact, it’s quite simple at Dandelion Communitea Cafe. The self-proclaimed “urban teahouse with an eco-attitude” provides consumers seeking a healthier lifestyle with a robust menu of organic & vegetarian food, and tea. That coupled with the venue’s charming atmosphere and convenient downtown location make it the perfect “out-of-the-box” place for a meal.

Dandelion Communitea Cafe

Aside from the healthy food one of the appealing things about Dandelion Communitea Cafe is the community feel. As pictured above, the cafe resides in an old house, and is immediately welcoming to its guests. After ordering your food, have it delivered to you while you’re lounging in any given room. It really is like having a meal at a friend or family member’s house, and is a local experience like none other.

Visit the Dandelion’s website for information like location, store hours, menu & pricing, and to sign-up for their newsletter. For additional information–like a calendar of events–visit the Dandelion Communitea Cafe MySpace page.

  1. I ate there!

    It’s fun and the food is delicious, albeit a bit pricey. The
    ambiance is relaxing and it’s a nice little haven to punctuate a busy
    work day. Plus, it’s right next to Orlando’s own chinatown, so if
    you have extra time, you can wander into some of the oriental markets
    and buy candy!

  2. I agree this is a nice place. I enjoy the uniqueness. It is quaint and very “hippy”esque. I do believe however, they are trying really hard to be trendy when it is not required.

    I think they just need to tone it a bit and it would be a great place. The hummus appetizer was great and the OBP was refreshing after a long bike ride. I wouldn’t rush back there but it is a nice curveball in the selection.
