The new crave in Orlando is this place called Dandelion Cafe, even my non-vegan/vegetarian friends love this place!
-It received 4 1/2 stars on yelp which is quite impressive in my opinion because we all know there's so many harsh critics on yelp.

Be sure to check this place out, I'm sure you'll love it!

There is nothing kid friendly in Central Florida, especially during the summer. First of all, it’s as hot as the surface of the sun here. The local kids don’t go outside during the summer. All they want to do is stay inside, play video games, eat junk food and get fat. The theme parks are all crowded with people from all over the world, many of whom apparently are only allowed to wear deodorant back in their own country. I’m surprised how many women in other countries still don’t shave under their arms……try explaining that to a kid. The roads, stores and restaurants are all crowed too. You can forget about going anywhere in a hurry, grabbing a bite real quick, or running in and out of Publix. The bugs are bad this time or year also, especially since we didn’t have a freeze last winter. Orange County (where Orlando is) was once “Mosquito County” in fact. Mosquitoes being a carrier of the West Nile virus, among other goodies. Then we have the love bugs, who’s’ only purpose in life is to copulate and make a mess out of the front of your car. The uninitiated will find this fascinating, and the kids will always ask the inevitable “what are they doing?”. It rains every day here during the summer. I don’t mean a light rain, but torrential downpours every afternoon. This leaves the remainder of each day soggy and humid. Its hurricane season during the 1st part of the summer. This would be a fun time for the kids to learn how to live without electricity for days (or weeks), kind of like camping, but indoors. They can learn the differences between a hurricane “watch “and a “warning” too, along with what makes a storm a “Cat 1” “Cat 2”….etc. Its alligator mating season here during the summer. This means that the amorous gators are roaming all over every lake, pond and pool in the state looking for love (and your poodle too, if you’re not careful). It is probably a treat for the kids to see a trapper (Mr. Lefty) catch a live gator, but you might want to have them turn away when they bring out the “bang stick”. Did I forget to mention the amoebas in the lakes and rivers.? They thrive in the shallow, warm water. They like to crawl up your nose, in your mouth or other orifices and eat your brain. You won’t get any relief from the crowds, but you might find 1 of the local water parks refreshing (if you find standing in line for an hour to go on a 15 second slide in to a pool filled with water that has a strange green tint "refreshing".)
All these things said, if you do send clients here, you should probably show them this, have them sign some form of disclosure, and send them our way.

Growing up, I was a military dependant lived all over the country. I’ve been here since 1978, and would never consider going anywhere else.

Carl Head answered:

I’m not involved with the dating scene in Orlando, but your question prompted me to do some (non-scientific) research. According to today’s Craigslist Personal Ad’s Section, there are 10 women looking for men, 104 men looking for women, 150 men (and 10 transvestites) looking for men, 14 women looking for women. So, I’m assuming that the women and the transvestites in Orlando are happy, and that there are a lot of lonely straight and gay men around here.
