Review: Dark & Light Cafe in Mount Dora
While in the area for a soccer tournament, I did a quick search to see what vegetarian and vegan restaurants were nearby. I came across Dark & Light Cafe, which is located in downtown Mount Dora. I love downtown Mount Dora! The whole area has such a good vibe, with lots of cafes and shops you can check out. It's lots of fun! So, we drove the 10 or so minutes over to the cafe for some lunch.
Dark & Light Cafe is in a collective, meaning that it's in a building that has numerous businesses in it. We found theirs in the back and headed in. The cafe is small, but nice and it was clean. Online we saw empanadas, which is what appealed to us and brought us in. We spotted them in the case as soon as we went in and they looked great. It took us a few minutes to decided what to order, because there were quite a few options that sounded good.
We ordered a variety of empanadas, including spinach and eggplant. We also ordered a vegan quesadilla, a lentil burger, and a "chicken" burger made of chickpeas. The burgers came with a salad and roasted potatoes. After about 15 minutes, the food was all ready and we were ready to dig in!
The empanadas did not disappoint! They were really good. My husband and I shared the burgers, taking half of each. They were both really good. I also liked the potatoes and salad. The beets on the salad were great! They were cut into a great long spiral. Our guest ate the quesadilla and liked it.
Two thumbs up for Dark & Light Cafe in Mount Dora. If you are looking for vegetarian or vegan cafes in the area this place is worth checking out. Everything is vegetarian, but many dishes are vegan or can be made vegan. The food is homemade and done so from good ingredients. Yum!
