Heard of it, but I don't recall where it is. Of course, I also live down south and only visit the central part of the state a couple of times per year.
Speaking of which, I wrote this yesterday...

'ers in person before.
I just plugged the address of the hotel into Google maps, then clicked "search nearby", and searched for the word "restaurant", in order to see what was nearby and plan ahead.
Of the first 10 restaurants it brought up near my hotel, 3 of them have the word "vegetarian" or "vegan" in their names!!! Other than a fast food falafel place, I've never actually been to an entirely veg*n restaurant before. And there are 3 of them! Within 2 miles of my hotel!!!
Excuse me while I go get a mop to clean up the blood and grey matter from the floor - my head just exploded.
So I knew Ethos Vegan Kitchen sounded familiar - it's been mentioned in this thread. There's also Garden Cafe' Vegetarian Restaurant and Dandelion Communitea CafeOrganic Vegetarian Teahouse. Looks like Garden Cafe's been mentioned in this thread, too. I'll be in Orlando in time for dinner Friday evening, then all meals Saturday and Sunday, though I'm likely to leave town late afternoon Sunday and just grab some pizza or BK veggie burger on the turnpike on my way home. So I do have time to hit all 3 of them, along with other restaurants in the area.
So what do you all recommend? Are any of these specifically best for breakfast or dinner or whatever? Also, are there other restaurants right around there that I should visit while I'm there?
