My favorite coffee house - cool place, great coffee and less than a mile away from the Serenity Studio! Hours: 7am-midnight Monday-Friday; 8am-midnight Saturday-Sunday Orlando Weekly says "Stardust started life as a video rental place that served coffee and over the years has morphed to serve the changing desires of the community. Among its many functions (work and study spot, café, live music venue, market host) and despite its ramshackle air, the ’dust is prized by anyone looking for a quality buzz. The bartenders of the Slanted and Enchanted Bar (in the big room) are given free rein to come up with inventive craft cocktails; the Scotch Bar (in the smaller room) stocks exquisite bottles; and the bottled beer and cider selection is choice. For many, it’s a home away from home. Extra points to anyone who gets all the film/music/literary references on the clever menu. The easy ones: a "Rob Reiner" ($6) is, of course, a meat loaf sandwich, and "For Esme with Love and Squalor" ($6) is a J.D. Salinger short story, represented here by a bowl of sushi rice and tofu. (Esme could have been a vegetarian -- J.D. didn't say). But the vegetarian chili "Viva's Last Blues" ($7) refers to what record? Nachos and black beans called "Three Colors Trilogy" ($6.50) are an homage to whose films? And why is a lemon-roasted chicken sandwich a "Crispin Glover" ($6)? These are mysteries worthy of Hitchcock. On the corner of Corrine Drive and Winter Park Road, behind the 7-Eleven.

Less than 1 mile away from the Serenity Studio!! My favorite for happy hour specials and for special dinner events!! French, Greek and Mediterranean, Italian, Spanish/Basque and Tapas, medium price range; happy hour 4p-6p features select $5 tapas and half price drinks. 10BEST says: "Best Value: To be fair, this tony tapas outpost is well known for many things, but being a one-dollar-sign venue is not one of them. On Saturdays and Sundays, however, Santiago's Bodega offers a brunch option. For $40 per person, you can partake of its excellent fare ad nauseum. Just how "nauseum" will depend on your own self-control. Mimosas and sangria are included in the price, which allows diners to test drive the place before deciding to come back for tapas. Prime rib, crab, custom omelets and an array of delightful eats clog the menu. And your arteries. Enjoy some sangria and offset the effects; red wine is heart smart."

Asian Fusion just 1 mile away from the Serenity Studio!

So, we were thrilled to recently discover and taste Tako Cheena, located in the Mills 50 District. Tako Cheena’s unique culinary style blends two food cultures, Latin and Asian.

Less than 1 mile from the Serenity Studio located in the Mills Park at the corner of Virginia Dr and Mills Ave (same shopping plaza as The Fresh Market). My favorite dish here is the Eggs Benedict Florentine -two poached eggs atop a toasted English muffin piled high with Florentine - fresh spinach, avocado and tomato covered with hollandaise. Yum!! At First Watch, they begin each morning at the crack of dawn, slicing fresh fruits and vegetables, baking muffins and whipping up their French toast batter from scratch. Everything is made to order, and freshness is never compromised. They don’t use heat lamps or deep fryers — only the finest ingredients possible for the freshest taste around. When you arrive, they welcome you with a pot — not just a cup — of their Sunrise Select Premium Blend® coffee, along with complimentary newspapers and WiFi Internet access.

Only 1.4 miles from the Serenity Studio, located in the "Milk District"! Highlights from the Gringos Locos restaurants on Washington Street in downtown Orlando and the location on Robinson in the Milk District include the Dang Quesadill-A with chicken (a 12-inch round stuffed with shredded cheese, pico de gallo and served with sour cream and guac on the side), the loco tacos (traditional turn with chunks of tender beef stuffed into corn tortillas and dressed with chopped onion, fresh cilantro and lime), the dirty Sanchez (a behemoth cylinder of sweet, slow-cooked pork, rice, beans, cheese and pico de gallo) and the Southwest chicken salad (fresh field greens and lightly seasoned chicken in a fried tortilla bowl with house-made tomatillo vinaigrette).

In the heart of Thornton Park is Soco, a Southern Contemporary culinary experience that is a great destination for date nights :) The atmosphere is an urban, contemporary feel with classic southern elements that make you feel fancy but right at home! They have a grand window into the kitchen so you can watch the culinary team prepare these absolutely gorgeous (and delicious) dishes. The food gives you a contemporary spin on time-honored classics and they really impress! And there are some yummy crafted cocktails to choose from :) Lastly, Thornton park is a great location for the restaurant because after dinner, you are just a skip away from a romantic walk at Lake Eola!

About 37 minutes away from the Serenity Studio (15 miles). Located at the headwaters of the Wekiva River, the beautiful vistas within this park offer a glimpse of what Central Florida looked like when Timucuan Indians fished and hunted these lands. Just one hour from most central Florida attractions, Wekiwa Springs offers visitors the opportunity to relax in a natural setting, enjoy a picnic, or take a swim in the cool spring. Thirteen miles of trails provide opportunities for hiking, bicycling, and horseback riding. Canoeists and kayakers can paddle along the Wekiva River and Rock Springs Run. Canoe and kayak rentals are available from the park's concessionaire. Options for camping include a full facility campground and primitive camping areas. This is a very popular park, particularly on summer weekends. To ensure entrance, we recommend arriving early; otherwise, the parking area will be full and you may not be able to enter.

1.3 miles away from the Serenity Studio! The Orlando Science Center (OSC) is a private science museum located in Orlando, Florida. Its purposes are to provide experience-based opportunities for learning about science and technology and to promote public understanding of science. The science center has two movie theaters that show both educational and Hollywood films: Dr. Phillips Cinedome Featuring a giant screen measuring 8,000 square feet, the 300-seat Dr. Phillips CineDome projects films through a fisheye lens, creating an image that surrounds the audience and extends well beyond their peripheral vision. It uses the largest film format in the world, 10 times larger than a conventional film theater. It's commonly called 15/70, meaning 15 perforations (horizontally) on a 70 mm print. Digital Adventure Theater One of the first museums to join a national effort with National Geographic, the Science Center has special access to one of the world’s largest giant-screen film libraries that includes award-winning films in 2D and 3D digital formats. In addition, this theater also shows select Hollywood movies and Science Live! programs such as Kaboom! and High Voltage.

About 35 miles from the Serenity Studio. Established as a Spiritualist community in 1894, the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association™ consists of approximately 57 acres with 55 residences. Those who reside here have chosen to share in a community of like-minded people where they can live, worship and work in harmony with their beliefs. About 25 of the Camp’s residents are mediums who offer counseling from their homes.Welcome to Cassadaga Although residents may own their homes within the Camp grounds, the church retains ownership of the land. And, though the word "Camp" appears in it's name, there are actually no camping facilities available. "Camp meeting" is an antiquated term for annual gatherings of religious groups. Designated a Historic District on the National Register Of Historic Places in 1991, the Southern Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp Meeting Association is the oldest active religious community in the Southeastern United States. In recent years, Spiritualism has seen a resurgence of interest. The "New Age Movement" has attracted many who are searching for a better way of life, those who wish to empower themselves and take responsibility for their lives. Spiritualism holds something for everyone, no matter what their religion or where they are on their spiritual path. The Camp welcomes not only believers, but the curious and skeptical, as well.

The Nora's vibe has always been very much a "stepping into your friend's living room for a beer" kind of thing. And really, that's almost literally what you'll be doing. Friendly resident dogs raise the bar for its uber-casual atmosphere; craft beer and good wine make patrons even more comfortable. And if you dig a good cigar, Nora's is an excellent and unpretentious place to enjoy one – and even learn a few things if you're a newbie. Nora says "A fun place to sit down and enjoy a cold beverage or take away with you. Excellent Cigar and Beer selections, fun wines and crazy things to buy. Wine Room is finished, the lounge is open."

In the early 1990’s, the movie theater was converted into a live-performance venue which opened the doors for many new artists and talent while also acting as the 3rd largest seated venue in Central Florida. The seated balcony and wide, open floor provide flexible accommodations for a variety of seated and GA standing events. We offer seating charts ranging from 432 to 937 and a GA standing cap of 1200. With high-ceilings and un-obstructed sightlines there is not a bad seat in the house.

The Guesthouse is a hidden gem on Mills; a little tough to find but it is right next to Black Rooster Taqueria. There are many parking options in the back, so don't panic if you don't find street parking. They have a great outdoor area, and the inside is hip and trendy. **every Friday they have free food available and during happy hour the whole menu is discounted.
