New Vegan Food Find in Orlando: Austin’s Coffee House

Posted on January 5, 2011


Last night while celebrating a couple of good friends’ birthdays, we happened upon Austin’s Coffee House in Winter Park. We were excited to find a place that is open 24 hours, so we could sit and chat without being chased out the door at 10 o’clock.

All of us being vegan, you can imagine seeing all of our dropped jaws as we checked out the chalkboard menu.  To our complete surprise we saw Marinated Tempeh on Whole Wheat (which the gentleman behind the counter attested was “really good”), Eggless Egg Salad on Wheat, several other sandwiches (marked Vegan) and numerous salads.

And don’t get me started on the dessert case!  Holy Sweet Motherload!  Last night they had vegan carrot cake, vegan chocolate cake and some of the best looking vegan doughnuts I have ever seen.  I ended up purchasing a box of doughnuts:  the last two sprinkle ones, a chocolate chip and chocolate and white icing for K’s birthday today.

It was open mic night last night, so we ended up just having a quick snack and heading out since it was too loud to chat.  But, I definitely cannot wait to go back to try that tempeh sandwich!
