Local Eats in Orlando ~ Se7ven Bites

I have heard many wonderful things about Se7ven bites from my friends who had enjoyed dining at this local eatery.  I had wanted to make it over to this bakery located in the Milk District for some time, but it never seemed to work out.  I was happy I finally got to visit the eatery with some of my local CFL Lady Bloggers.

Trina the owner had invited a few of the ladies to come in and sample some bites and find out the story behind this "Sweet & Savory Bakeshop".  

The eatery is small with about a dozen two top tables and some "bar" seating.  I love the quaintness about it, as the ladies working here are very friendly.

The daily menu consists of a selection of sweets and savory baked goods to choose from along with a handful of daily specials.

Our group got to sample a plate of their more poplar items including Biscotti, Breakfast Bread Pudding, the Morning Biscuit, Chicken Pot Pie and Chicken Salad.

The food here is "Southern American".  Each item we tried had a wonderful story behind it and a few of the stories were close to Trina's heart including baking with her grandmother.  Chef Trina told us how she came up with the name Se7ven Bites.  Trina had been overweight and after having her son she knew she needed to make dietary changes.  She underwent surgery and now has to eat smaller portions; hence Seven Bites.  She felt that by having food that fulfilled all the taste requirements in just seven bites she could be satiated.  Trina is absolutely right, her foods are filled with the right amount of flavor that satisfies you, so you don't need to eat so much to enjoy.

While the stories were heartfelt you can taste the love from them in the food.  I enjoyed everything we tried.  The Morning Biscuit is buttery with a pimento cheese sauce that flavors the egg quite nicely.  The Chicken Salad isn't weighed down with mayonnaise, but has a savory whipped cream as a binder.  I love that Trina is using dark chocolate in her Chocolate Chip Cookies.

While the food was delicious I have to mention how amazing the Orange Blossom Iced Tea was.  This tea taste like Florida; the floral taste made you think of sunshine.  It was perfect!

 Make sure you save room to enjoy one of their many desserts they have baked fresh that day.  We sampled some Dark Chocolate Chip Cookies that were delicious!

I look forward to joining some of my friends and becoming a regular at Se7ven Bites.  Trina and her gals are baking some delicious food here in Orlando and they do it with a lot of love and passion.

Have you been to Se7ven Bites?  If so what were your favorites?  Did you try the tea?
