Lucky’s Market just had its grand opening on February 6th, 2019. Located in the (SoDo) South of Downtown Orlando district at 3171 Orange Ave, Orlando, Fl. 32806. Known for having the largest variety of organic item and budget-friendly prices.

I’m really happy about having another choice when it comes to buying groceries, produce, meat, and fish. There’s also a Café, in-store, where you can sit and grab a bite to eat. For more information on Lucky’s Market visit their website at www.luckysmarket.com. Let me take you on a quick tour of my visit.

High Tea-Grand Floridian Resort Disney World

Grand Floridian Resort- High Tea (29)

Grand Floridian Resort- High Tea (28)

My daughter never ceases to amaze me. I think I’ve mentioned that whenever she comes home for a visit she has a surprise for me, up her sleeve. Turns out that this food adventure was slightly different from all the others not only because it tugged on my heartstrings but because it was a way to pay homage to my mom. If you’ve been following my blog, thank you so much for that, then you know my mom (mum) was from England.

My mom loved her tea. Any idea where I’m going with this yet? Melissa made reservations for High Tea-Grand Floridian Resort, Disney World. OMG!, I couldn’t believe it the Garden View Tea Room.

An entire afternoon, in memory of my mom, Melissa’s Nanny Doris, having High Tea, and a day I’ll never forget. The beautiful view of the garden from the windows that lined the tea room was absolutely breathtaking. Here’s a peek into our day.

Melissa and I had the Cheshire Tea option. We also each had our own pot of tea of our choosing, it was simply amazing. You really did feel like royalty.

As you looked around there were guests that showed they were going all in for the full English experience. Throughout the tea room, all you would see were people dressed in a rainbow of pastel colors with their matching fancy hats that complimented their outfits so beautifully.

I don’t believe I’ve seen a bigger smile on Melissa’s face then when Cinderella and her Prince Charming entered the room. The little girl in her came shining through.

SOCO Restaurant Thorton Park

On Melissa’s last day before heading back to Oakland, CA., we went out for dinner. This time it was my turn to choose the place. I decided on SOCO RestaurantThorton Park. 

SOCO (Southern Contemporary Cuisine) takes classic southern fare and kicks it up a few notches. The atmosphere is trendy, cozy, with a lot of natural light. Let me take you on a quick tour of our experience.

Our server Jordan and the hostess Tiffany were both very professional and courteous. They both helped to make our dining experience one we’ll remember. Thank you both so much!

As I passed by I noticed a small bio on the wall, one about the Chef Greg Richie and another about how old favorites have been reimagined.
