Moms tell kids to eat their vegetables in the secret aspiration they will eat enough to turn into autotrophic, immobile beanstalks that can be used as ladders for house chores. Get your veggie fill without fulfilling parental ulterior motives with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of organic eats, loose-leaf tea, and more at Dandelion Communitea Cafe.
Dandelion Communitea Cafe is a health-, environment-, and people-conscious cafe serving up fresh, local fare to fresh, local people seven days a week. The menu commencers include a Tex-Mex trio of whirled peas guacamole, black bean dip, and queso rock ($8), creamy hummus accented with hemp seed ($8), and the machos libre, a vegetarian twist on nachos with Dandelion's signature chili, organic corn chips, and homemade queso ($9). The quinoa pilaf in the native mama mix ($5) provides enough energy to win an arm-wrestling contest against a 'roided out rhinoceros, while the salads don't miss a veggie-bumping beet with options such as the Polynesian banana fantasy, a montage of spring greens, carrots, celery, and walnuts all tossed in a curry-inspired dressing ($8.50). The fakin lettuce and tomato replaces bacon with organic artisan tempeh and basil aioli ($7.50), and the kids menu includes an almond butter and jelly sandwich ($6) and organic cheddar grilled cheese ($7). The beverage menu contains more than four dozen varieties of organic teas, plus organic coffee and locally brewed beer.
Besides providing cellulose-based snacking to Orlando denizens, Dandelion opens up its doors for a variety of community-based events. Art openings, poetry nights, and a weekly vegan potluck contribute to the collective feeling of wellbeing resonating within the colorful green restaurant's walls. The eatery is green certified by Green America for sustainable business practices, and guaranteed to give you the golden mushroom boost needed to win against Bowser and Wario on the karmic raceway.
