Dandelion Do-Over

The weather in Central Florida is so nice this weekend! I am actually wearing jeans and not dying of heat! 😀


My only day off work this week was on Saturday, so I took full advantage of getting out and about. I had some errands to run near downtown, and decided to stop for lunch at Dandelion Communitea Cafe.


I have only ever been once before, in summer of 2009. I had a bad experience and didn’t like what I ordered… at all! I have heard other people say good things about it, and have wanted to give it another shot. I’m glad that I did!

The atmosphere inspired me to embrace my inner hippie.



I perused the menu for something that didn’t look like I could make at home. Many of the items are very basic… like a fluffer nutter sandwich. Why would I pay someone to make that for me?!


I ended up deciding on the special: a pressed black bean burrito.


The burrito was made of a whole wheat wrap, stuffed with black beans, corn, quinoa, whirled peas (pea guacamole), and cheese.


On the side, it came with a vegan queso sauce and blue corn chips. I was hesitant about the queso, being made with a peanut butter base, but it was actually quite delicious! I probably would not have known it included PB unless I was told.






I hated it. 😉 Actually, I almost licked the plate clean. Who knew vegan cheese could be… good?!


Have you ever had a sub-par experience at a restaurant the first time, but decided to go back and give it a second chance?
