Coffee Break: Take 5
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.
