I’m sure there are a lot of people who would rather I not tell you all about Yellow Dog Eats. Located in Gotha, FL (basically Windermere), this quirky little eatery is a best-kept secret with a cult like following. I still haven’t put my finger on exactly what won me over during a recent visit—the sweet little outdoor patio, the delicious food or the laid back vibe—but I can totally see why people love this casual and clandestine neighborhood haunt. Take a peak at these pics and then make a plan to visit yourself:

This outdoor patio with its strung lighting and ample seating is an ideal place to hang out, especially on nights when live musicians plan. See the event calendar for schedule.

This converted two-story home gives you the option to dine downstairs or upstairs. Both dining rooms are quite… colorful.

Other than the outdoor garden patio, this is THE table for date night.

Make sure you leave room for dessert. There are several yummy options, including the famed Snickers Cheesecake and the Campfire Brownie.
