“A Local Star”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

Most excellent is the owner, who prepares the food himself, greets all his guests and personally tends to each one. He obviously cares about your dining experience and makes sure he does his utmost to treat you in every way possible. The menu is original, fun and full of lots of surprises. This is a don't miss and one to definitely put on the list hen in town. It's not fancy, a few tables, but all of that doesn't matter because his snawiches and smoothies are dreamy!

“Astonishingly Good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

It would be easy to pass by this small restaurant, given that it is in the Park Avenue district of Winter Park and competing with many excellent, well-established restaurants across the dining spectrum. It seems competition in this market has bred a winner. Visit www.powerhousecafe.com to have a look at the menu. The store was quite busy (a good sign!) serving the Saturday crowds, and at first glance, slightly chaotic; I was in the area for a meeting. Power House Cafe is done up in light woods and bright colors, and appeared very clean and well-organized for service. It seemed that most people order from the counter, which is what I did. They do have servers working the floor as well. The smoothies and other offerings looked enticing, but I ordered a falafel pita for takeaway back to my meeting. My pita arrived in just a few minutes, and it was packed with a nice salad mix, a generous swath of hummus, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers and, in my experience, the best falafel I've ever had away from home. The dressing, on the side, was a lemony tahini blend that was just right for the falafel. I really could not have been more pleased. I watched my pita being put together at a clean, organized workstation, as the cook worked efficiently to create my order along with the others in the queue. A "5" seems pretty high based on one visit, but I left quite impressed and will seek this restaurant out for a quick, nutritious, delicious meal when in Winter Park or the vicinity.

“Tasty and Healthy too”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This small storefront on a side street off Park Avenue has a great selection of soups, salads and mediterranean specialties and sandwiches at reasonable prices. The cafe is nothing fancy but the food is delicious. The hummus-tabbouleh on pita was both tasty and quite filling. A good place for a quick lunch.

“Healthy Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 6, 2012

Went here today and had the Chicken Shawerma Wrap and it was very tasty. In fact, it was so good that I forgot to put on the sesame sauce that comes with it. The veggies were fresh and the chicken was moist and seasoned perfectly. If you are looking for a lite and healthy lunch, give them a try.
