Located in trendy Thornton Park near Lake Eola, this Winter Park sister eatery is a combo of wine store and upscale diner with its butcher block tables, chrome bar stools, terrazzo floor and impressive retail wine selection. The menu is vast and offers options for light and hearty eaters. There is a "main" menu that offers a nice selection of café basics, and then there is the specialty menu which changes monthly. Selections from the specialty menu tend to be more creative and gourmet.

Along with the daily fish special, the main menu offers a number of impressive entrée salads (including spinach) with various protein additions such as mesquite grilled chicken, bbq spice salmon or mahi mahi. Calorie counters will appreciate the low oil balsamic dressing option. Made to order sandwiches along with "classics" including a Cajun chicken and a grilled veggie are other intermediate fare. Mesquite grilled chicken quesadilla, chicken tortilla pie, jambalaya, angus burger, and pastas round out menu selections. In terms of the changing menu, recent additions for lunch included a coriander crusted yellow fin tuna served with a cucumber and ginger salad, a blue crab and shrimp salad over bib lettuce, a sesame tuna and tiger shrimp stir fry, and a hearty meatball rigatoni. At dinner, recent items from the specialty menu included grilled yellow fin, cedar plank salmon, grilled pork tenderloin and cast iron seared filet mignon.

The breakfast/brunch is weighted to the heavy side with stuffed French toast, corn beef hash, omelets, quiche and waffles. But there is a fruit plate with granola and we're guessing egg whites could be requested.
