2017 FEB 23 ACHILLES ART CAFE ORLANDO

ARCHILLES ART CAFE
2869 Wilshire Dr #103, Orlando, FL 32835

MY RATING: 3 OF 5 STARS 

WHERE WAS THIS AND WHY DIDN'T I FIND THIS EARLIER! 
I'M NOT A COFFEE EXTRAORDINAIRE AND WASN'T INTO THE THEMED CAFE SCENE THAT IS QUITE POPULAR IN KOREA WHILE I WAS THERE. HOWEVER, MISSING IT NOW THAT IT IS CONSIDER AS A RARE KIND OF ESTABLISHMENT HERE. 

ACCORDING TO ACHILLE'S WEBSITE, IT IS SAID THAT THEY OPENED AUGUST OF 2008. SO, IT'S BEEN IN BUSINESS AT THIS LOCATION FOR A WHILE. BUT, IT IS ALSO PRETTY HIDDEN IN THE METRO WEST AREA. I ALMOST CONTINUED DRIVING WHEN I ONLY SPOTTED "COFFEE SHOP" AND NOT IT'S FULL NAME.




THE VIBE OF THIS PLACE IS PRETTY WARM. THE STAFF ARE PRETTY FRIENDLY.
THE LITTLE AREAS SECTIONED BY A SET OF COFFEE TABLE AND COUCH GIVES AN INVITING FEEL TO GROUPS OR INDIVIDUALS TO LOUNGE AROUND. 

I WAS LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT CAME CLOSE TO LOOKING LIKE THE ONE IN THE FRIEND'S EPISODE. THIS WILL HAVE TO DO FOR NOW.
I WAS INTRIGUED WITH THE FLAVORS OF THE LATTES AND ENDED UP GETTING THE LATTE WITH BUTTERBEER FLAVOR. IT WAS DELICIOUS!
THE PRICE SEEM TO BE IN THE PANERA RANGE. $8 FOR THE MOZZARELLA, PROVOLONE, SWISS CHEESE ON SOURDOUGH, AND TOMATO SOUP.

$8 FOR THE BEEF EMPANADA WITH SOUR CREAM, GUACAMOLE, AND TOMATO SALSA. THE GUAC AND SALSA TASTED FRESH!




PEACEFUL DURING CLOSING TIME!

I WOULD DEFINITELY BE BACK SOON, BUT NOT TOO SOON. I'M STILL ON THE HUNT TO FIND MORE CAFES NEAR ME.

2014 04 23 INDULGING COFFEE AT WAWA ORLANDO

Wawa
5910 Central Florida Pkwy 
Orlando - SW, FL 32821     
Phone: 407-345-5210         

LUV IT WHEN WAWA HAS THEIR $1.99 PROMOTIONS ON THEIR COFFEES.  ANY SIZE, ICED AND HOT COFFEES!  I THOUGHT IT WAS ONLY THE SELF-SERVED ONES TOO, BUT IT WAS ALSO THE SPECIALTY SELECTIONS THAT YOU ORDER THROUGH THE TOUCH SCREEN KIOSKS.
  
SINCE THE PROMOTION IS A SELECTION OF ANY SIZE, OF COURSE I HAVE TO GET THE LARGEST, WHICH IS THE 24 OZ.  

DOES THIS SIZE EXIST IN ASIA?  
IT FELT LIKE ALL THE DRINK SIZES WERE CATERED TO KIDS BLADDER OVER THERE.  

#OBESITY #PROBLEMSINAMERICA
#CONTROLLED #CONSUMPTIONS

SO, SALTED CARAMEL MACCHIATO IT IS! DON'T KNOW WHERE THEY PUT IN THE SALT, OR IF IT IS JUST TO ENTICE PEOPLE WITH IT BEING THAT IT IS A SALTED CARAMEL, BUT IT WAS REALLY REALLY SWEET! SO MUCH SUGAR IN THIS LARGE SIZE THAT I HAVE TO PACE MYSELF, DRINKING THIS OVER A 2 DAY PERIOD AND WATERING IT DOWN WITH WATER.  TONS OF WATER!

2012 11 22 TURKISH COFFEE, ANYONE?

ALWAYS INTRIGUED WITH THE TASTE OF THE WORLD, MY EYES CAUGHT THIS IN THE COFFEE AISLE AT THE INTERNATIONAL FOOD CLUB STORE (4300 L B McLeod Road  Orlando, FL 32811.  
AND I QUESTIONED WHAT TURKISH COFFEE TASTED LIKE.

AND I WOULD HAVE TO SAY THAT IT WAS REALLY DISGUSTING.  IT TASTED LIKE NASTY WATER THAT HAS NOT GONE THROUGH THE FILTER WAS MIXED IN WITH SOME COFFEE TASTING DISASTER, BLENDED WITH SOME TASTE THAT WAS RELEVANT TO NUTS.  IT MADE ME WONDER IF THE WATER THAT I HAD JUST BOILED WAS THE PROBLEM TO THIS DISGUSTING TASTE.

POUR THE FRESH BOILED WATER IN ANOTHER CUP AND DECIDED THAT WAS NOT THE CASE.  REGARDLESS OF THE BRAND OR THE FACT THAT THIS WAS INSTANT COFFEE, I'M GLAD THAT I DID NOT SPEND MORE THAN $1.50 FOR THIS INSTANT COFFEE PACKET.

MY TASTE BUDS HATED IT!
