Writing the next great American novel takes commitment, courage, and the ability to seamlessly splice together passages from Huckleberry Finn and Moby Dick. Start your next project in the ideal café setting with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of wine, espresso, desserts, and light fare at One Flight Up in Mount Dora.
A selection of fine potables and light eats awaits diners within One Flight Up's artsy coffee-shop confines. Perk up after a long night of sleepwalking with an energy-boosting espresso ($2–$2.50) or house coffee ($2–$2.50), or relax after a long day of elaborately apologizing to neighbors with fermented fare such as the Sycamore Lane merlot ($6.50/glass; $19/bottle) and Hahn riesling ($7.25/glass; $23/bottle). Desserts, such as the apple-pie crock à la mode ($5.50) and chocolate or caramel sundaes ($4.95), reward mouth-muscles for lifetimes of successful mastication, and lighter mealtime fare such as a hummus plate ($7.95) or a tangy summer salad ($8.75) await to sate hungrier visitors.
While enjoying the succulently prepared comestibles, diners can also drink up unrivaled views from a dog-friendly balcony overlooking Mount Dora's tree-lined streets. On weekend nights, live music transforms the eatery into a hot spot for toe tapping, drink sipping, and polite headbanging.
One Flight Up
One Flight Up's name refers to its shaded, dog-friendly balcony location, which overlooks the charming storefronts of Donnelly Street while cultivating relaxation with wind chimes and hanging plants. From 8:30 a.m. into the night, the café serves sandwiches, salads, desserts, and drinks suitable for each hour of the day. Breakfast begins with quiches, coffee, and espresso, and then lunchgoers can dig into tomato-basil bisque or a Harvest chicken-salad sandwich. At night, in addition to the food menu, the café's team cracks open beer bottles and pours wines that include Milton Park shiraz and Cortenova pinot grigio.
On weekend nights, live music wafts through the interior and out onto the balcony, twinkling with string lights. Mondays host open-mic performers, who demonstrate their abilities to take a microphone apart.
