Delicious Food and Deeper Roots
For more than 35 years, the Power House Café has changed the way people in Winter Park, Florida eat. Our Mediterranean café offers home-style, healthy eating options and conscious meals that take hours to make yet minutes to serve. Home-style recipes include Mediterranean-inspired dishes, fresh salads, breakfast wraps, and creative sandwiches. Our president and head chef, Chris Bassil, uses only the freshest ingredients and makes just enough food for the day, ensuring that every meal we serve is both delicious and healthy.
The original Power House was a hole in the wall restaurant with 10 bar stools and two small tables started in 1970 by two cross-country runners. This Mediterranean café was the first to sell smoothies in Winter Park, Florida. In 1998, Chris Bassil acquired the restaurant, changed the name to the Power House Café, and expanded the building and menu to better serve customers. Six months later, the New York Times recognized us as one of the best places to eat in Winter Park.
