Not somewhere that your average tourist is going to stumble across in Orlando but take it from me it is worth hunting down for its quirky looks, friendly staff and great food

I agree with the above comments. They do make most everything they serve so I am sure that if you are catering they will insure that your order is as specified regarding allergens. The owners take pride in the food they... More
