Location: Orlando, Florida

Museums? Concerts? Who has time? On the road you’ll find me at farmers’ markets, food festivals and restaurants only the locals know about.

Rona Gindin writes about restaurants and travel for Food Network, Google and NatGeo Online, among others. She created Saveur’s website, hosted a restaurant TV show and authored a Disney World guidebook.

Breakfast Spot Only The Locals Know. George’s Cafe in Winter Park. A quiet little sandwich spot. Everything is hand-roasted, baked or chopped.

Dive Bar Not To Be Missed. Everyone knows it’s Wally’s. But I’ve never been. I’m too busy eating.

Good eats AND live music. Mama Della’s. Classic Italian fare, plus a trio singing Old World tunes.
