Foxtail Farmhouse Winter Park

Foxtail Coffee shop in Winter Park has been around for about a year, but recently they expanded next door into a new huge space. The grand opening was on 2/10/18 and it's pretty impressive.

The Coffee shop next door is still open as it always was, nothing really changed. The new space has a much larger variety of foods and coffee related drinks and additionally beer, wine, bubbles, etc.

I tried the Quiche, Goat Cheese/Beet Side, Mocha Coffee and a few other handout freebies like the Matcha chocolate ball and some other chocolate balls. All were good and I really like the atmosphere. There is a lot more seating, I always found finding a seat at the coffee shop a bit of a pain as they were always taken. Hopefully that isn't an issue at the new space.

Here are the pics and menus:

Orlando Festival of Bacon 2017

The Orlando Festival of Bacon is coming to Lake Baldwin Park on Saturday, November 4th from
11am-6pm. Spots are still available for both event sponsors and vendors of the tasty pork treat.
Bacon is pork cured in salt and boiled, smoked, or left to dry in order to seal in its distinctive flavor. In America, the meat is traditionally taken from pork belly, which has more fat than side cuts or pork loin, but more meat than fatback.

The recent popularity of bacon has been called “bacon mania” and manifests in many new bacon
products every year. Bacon ice-cream, bacon whiskey, and chocolate-covered bacon, while once
culinary rarities, have become almost mainstream.

It is a great pleasure to be bringing the Festival of Bacon to the Lake Baldwin Park Community. This
outdoor area will provide the best location for all attendees to enjoy the food, music, entertainment,
and atmosphere the Festival of Bacon will deliver, right in the heart of Baldwin Park. Festival of Bacon projects an attendance of more than 5,000 people throughout the day for a Food Festival that is Family Friendly, Diverse, and with Entertainment for all.

This year’s festivities will include an all-star line up of live music & bands, which will perform on the center stage of the park. Line up to be announced soon!

We are also providing personalized experiences through the building of Entertainment Zones,
including specially curated areas throughout the park! Kids under 12 are free and can enjoy a variety of inflatables, music, games, and, of course, cotton candy! All the while adults can partake in all of your favorite Lawn Games with the beautiful scenery that is Lake Baldwin Park, creating a great atmosphere for all lovers of Bacon!

In 2013 the Festival of Bacon attracted 11K attendees to Festival Park. This year, with new partners
and producers, the festival proudly calls Lake Baldwin Park it’s new home for the 2017 event. Our
main focus is to supply our patrons with the highest quality event, with attention to ALL DETAILS.

We are taking ample measures to make sure there is minimal wait time at all stations. One of these
measures is that this year cash and debit cards will be accepted at every vendor, including all drink
stations and bars.

Gideon's Bakehouse

This place sells out of Cookies every day. Must be amazing, that's the word on the street.

From their FB: "Gideon's Bakehouse is a dessert project built from an old forgotten dream. We've combined our love for baking with the recipes in a 1898 diary of a young boy named Gideon who dreamed of opening a bakery. Our cake slices are built off of classic recipes and our cookies set the standard for what a cookie should be. 6 ounces. Hand crafted. Melt in your mouth. Flavor packed. You won't experience anything else like it. The cookie revolution has begun!"
