Mount Dora, Florida 32757
Charming One Flight Up has the best view of all downtown Mount Dora restaurants.
It's on the second floor with no elevator, so you have to be in good enough shape to walk up the stairs.
The outside dining balcony has a wonderful view of what's going on downtown. There are even one or two tables where you can see Lake Dora and at certain times of the year enjoy the sunset.
Owners Judy and Roger and their friendly staff make guests feel very welcome. In fact, if you go there more than once you begin to feel like you're a member of the family.
The coffee, soups, salads, wraps and other light fare are among the best in Central Florida. I recommend their Chicken Tuscany soup; a bowl makes a hearty meal. They also have a wonderful variety of cakes and cookies for those with a sweet tooth.
One Flight Up also has several small intimate rooms with comfortable couches and chairs for group gatherings. They have Team Trivia on Sunday nights at 600pm, known as TOFU (Trivia One Flight Up). The place gets busy with all kinds of people having a chance to win the contest.
Prizes include bragging rights and a small sum of money. They also have open mike on Monday nights, and usually have a single performer on Saturday nights.
A good selection of wine and beer will complement your meal. Their coffee is great and they also have free wireless connectivity. It's a good place to spend some time and meet friendly people.
