Market on South // www.marketonsouth.com
2603 E South St, Orlando, FL 32803
Plant-based dining with a restaurant, bakery, and bar in one space. Market on South is a shared space and current home to Dixie Dharma, Valhalla Bakery, and Humble Bumble Kombucha. Dixie Dharma's vegan Southern inspired dishes are savory and full of flavors. The Pulled Carolina BBQ Jackfruit Sandwich replaces the pulled pork with jackfruit and it's melt-in-your-mouth good. Valhalla Bakery's vegan doughnuts are also a huge hit in the town but they sell out fast. (Tip: Get there early or between Tuesday-Thursday.)

903 S Mills Ave, Orlando, FL 32806
Tucked in a quiet neighborhood near Downtown Orlando, 903 Mills Market's outdoor seating is a place you'll want to relax at to enjoy the weather. Saturday mornings are so much more fun when you can squeeze a jog/run at the nearby park and walk over to the market for a brunch break. If you're into creative sandwiches, try the Grateful Bread - a Thanksgiving dinner in a sandwich.
The Sanctum Cafe // www.thesanctumcafe.com
715 N Ferncreek Ave, Orlando, FL 32803
New plant-based restaurant in Orlando with scrumptious salads and more. The ingredients in the salads at The Sanctum Cafe have inspired me to be more creative with my own salads. The house spiced tempeh in the Shiva Salad was one of my favorite ingredients. Tempeh is made from soybeans and offers a healthy dose of protein and fiber.
