Try the New Hourglass District

If you have not recently driven down Curry Ford Road, near Bumby Avenue in Orlando, it is worth taking the time to see this development. Now referred to as “The Hourglass District,” boutique restaurants and coffee shops are turning this location into a great place for a date night.

“The goal is always to keep the integrity of the area, while bringing new Florida Vibrance to the existing structures,” say the owners of 2041 Curry Ford. They are accomplishing that mission by attracting high quality owners like Claddagh Cottage Irish Pub. The Claddagh Cottage is a beer and wine pub which serves a menu of homemade meat pies, beef stew and sandwiches. I recommend the Cottage Pie!

Three other places to consider are:

Cilantro’s Tauquiera
Serving Mexican Street Food, Cilantro’s makes homemade tacos and flautas with authentic flair! Perfect for a casual lunch or when biking to dinner, this local eatery is worth stopping by.

Orlando Homebrew Supply Company
This store offers everything you need to make beer and wine, including beer making kits, wine making kits, beer making ingredient kits, wine making ingredient kits, grains, brew kettles, corny keys, etc. They also have over sixty styles of grains on hand that you can measure and mill yourself. Basically if you need something for your home brewing adventures, they have it.

Foxtail Coffee
Foxtail Coffee Company is dedicated to responsibly sourcing some of the finest coffees from around the world. The company upholds its ethical and quality standards by making sure these environmentally-friendly farms are paid fair wages, so they may continue to grow exceptional crops. Foxtail Coffee provides a welcoming atmosphere that shifts the way we think of coffee-one cup at a time. Scheduled to open in mid to late July, this is a top notch addition to the Hourglass District!
