More than 30 organic loose-leaf teas are offered at this socially conscious teahouse that's become a gathering ground for nonconformists, neo-cons and everyone in between. A predominantly vegan menu of wraps, salads and an outstandingly hearty chili will satisfy even the most ravenous of carnivores. Start with hummus with hemp seeds, and finish with the fluffernutter sandwich - a sweet proposition.
Lattes and cappuccinos aren't the only items worth sampling here. Above-average cafe fare includes the jerk chicken burrito, beef-and-brie sandwich and breakfast waffles, not to mention freshly made desserts. All of HBC's profits go toward community service projects in Orange County and around the world. Customers are encouraged to help out, so be sure to inquire if interested in more than just a cup of joe.
Some special places offer more than what’s on the table, and while the teas and veggie snacks are wonderful at this quaint corner spot, just as much nourishment comes from the “third place” environment created by Christina and Brad Cowherd.
This tried-and-true eat-in or take-home kitchen holds many treasures. Changing daily, the menu offers sandwiches, soups and entrees ranging from Bohemian tilapia to Tuscan chicken to Chinese stir-fry. A great place to get party eats.
Bubble teas, invented in Taiwan in the 1980s to appeal to school kids, have taken hold in Orlando. Tapioca pearls, or “boba,” create the illusion of bubbles in the exotic drinks that range from an avocado smoothie to “four-color pudding” – all distinguished by the shrink-wrap lid.
Cafe Britt Costa Rican coffee, a variety of ice-blended espresso drinks and more than 20 teas and tisanes are offset by over-the-top pastries and desserts. High-speed wi-fi makes it easy to study (or stalk your Facebook crush) on the comfy sofa.
Want interesting sandwiches (yellow curry chicken salad with toasted almonds, red apple and onion), unusual tea (raspberry-rose), killer desserts (lavender-peppercorn creme brulee), and a cheery atmosphere? Find it all here. Open 24 hours Friday and Saturday.
Roho Art & Coffee, located in the CityArts Factory building, serves up great coffee at a decent price. It's a unique local coffee house with lots of delicious coffee offerings, as well as teas and snacks such as pastelitos, empanadas, quiche and bagels. The large windows make people-watching in the heart of downtown easy and fun. The dining room also serves as an art gallery exhibiting the work of local Hispanic artists.
Stardust started life as a video rental place that served coffee and over the years has morphed to serve the changing desires of the community. Among its many functions (work and study spot, café, live music venue, market host) and despite its ramshackle air, the ’dust is prized by anyone looking for a quality buzz. The bartenders of the Slanted and Enchanted Bar (in the big room) are given free rein to come up with inventive craft cocktails; the Scotch Bar (in the smaller room) stocks exquisite bottles; and the bottled beer and cider selection is choice. For many, it’s a home away from home
Your ticket to Hong Kong is here at Tatáme. This ultra-modern, artistic space for lounging, snacking and sipping specializes in saké and tea. Check out the bubble tea and the see-through bathrooms.
High-tea favorites - and heartier fare such as steak - are charmingly presented. But the piece de resistance is Queen Victoria cake, crowned by powdered sugar and filled with strawberry preserves and cream cheese.
