We enjoyed the ambience, the food and the service. Family friendly and lots of options for vegetarian eating. With gluten free options and a host of great non meat choices, it was hard to decide. The spices and amounts were perfect. So glad we could visit here.

Dandelion is the epitome of a community cafe. They offer a wide variety of vegetarian, vegan, and celiac-friendly items along with local beers and wines, and specialty drinks like lemonades and teas. Everything is affordable for the quality and amount of food received. Dandelion gets most of their ingredients from local sources, ensuring freshness in every bite. The service is... More

The food at this restaurant is so delicious and the variety of different choices is amazing. This is not your typical processed, over salted, cooked in oil place. It is great food with great flavor and all natural. They have different flavored teas, different craft beers and choices that will blow your mind. The vibe and atmosphere is really low... More

If you want vegetarian this is the place for you! It's a house that's been converted to a cafe. Very busy place at 1:40pm on a Wednesday afternoon. Ultimately we needed something else because of the all vegetarian menu. They are farm to table and seem to grow their veggies in beds located on site.

After working in Orlando for a month, I finally found a healthy and fun vegetarian place. This will be a weekly stop (or more). The menu was large and a staff member helped me greatly with suggestions. The vegan fare is varied and delicious. Plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. Patrons are friendly and some communal tables are available in... More

Have been there twice and like it very much. It's a super-cozy cafe. They have a good variety of teas plus a decent selection of cakes and meals. You can grab an ice-tea and take some rest on the couches in the back room or get a hot tea and hang out outside the cafe. They also have a Piano... More

First, it is difficult to find decent vegan options anywhere. Everything that 15 of us ordered was GREAT. Also, they have Kamboucha on tap!!!! They have some in bottles too but there is nothing like fresh to soothe the soul. All of that coupled with a quaint atmosphere made this an incredible experience. You will walk in and order, pay...

I think the title pretty much says it all - great food, fun and casual setting and didn't go broke to eat there. You order and pay at the counter and then they bring it to you.

Love eating here. Black bean burrito, side salad w green goddess dressing. Queso and chips. Chili w queso. All sooooo delicious. The fluffer nutter is awesome. Their baked goods are always yummy. The teas are great. It's all vegan. I'm not a huge fan of tempeh or anything soy, so I most likely will not try any of those options... More
