Cof­fee Break: Take 5

Where Orlando - - Contents - BY LAURA AN­DERS LEE

Walk right past that Star­bucks and head in­stead to th­ese five lo­cal cof­fee houses.

Treat your­self to a re­ally amaz­ing, non-cor­po­rate cup of cof­fee, leav­ing you with enough caf­feine to get through an­other round of roller coast­ers.

Barnie’s: This Win­ter Park cof­fee shop is the per­fect pick-me-up with its mi­cro­roast and rare, small-lot cof­fees. Cof­fee drinkers can’t get enough of Santa’s White Christ­mas, a blend of co­conut, caramel and vanilla.

Lick­ety-Split: Just in­side the Four Sea­sons Walt Dis­ney World Re­sort is this gourmet cof­fee shop with an eight-hour cold brew sure to get you go­ing.

Credo: In the hip­ster neigh­bor­hood of Col­lege Park, Credo brings incredible Gu­atemalan cof­fee along with a fresh con­cept to the ta­ble: cus­tomers name their own price with pro­ceeds go­ing back to the com­mu­nity.

Pho 88: This Mills 50 dis­trict near down­town of­fers some of the city’s mostau­then­tic Viet­namese, Thai, Korean and Chi­nese eater­ies. Try the Viet­namese iced cof­fee with con­densed milk for the per­fect end­ing to a fla­vor­ful meal.

Benjamin French: This French bak­ery in down­town’s charm­ing pocket of Thorn­ton Park is worth a visit. The owner her­self will pour your cap­puc­cino served with whipped cream or frothy steamed milk. Take your per­fect cup for a walk down the bricked streets to ad­mire the 1920s bun­ga­lows or around Down­town’s Lake Eola. C’est mag­nifique!

Barnie’s on Park Ave.
