I tried to post this last week after I visited the new bar in Ivanhoe Village last week; but I got busy with selling homes. The blog takes the back seat sometimes.
The new hot spot in Ivanhoe Village is called The Hammered Lamb. They had a soft opening early last week and then officially opened the doors on Friday. The location is perfect with beautiful views of Lake Ivanhoe from the large outdoor patio bar. Inside there are video games, tons of TVs, plenty of spots to sit and chat or listen to the awesome 90′s set-list. It’s a relaxed neighborhood bar vibe that is just right for the area.
They will be serving light dishes in the future but for now it’s a great place to have a drink and enjoy the Florida weather on the outdoor patio.
Thinking of moving to the area? Search nearby homes for sale in Lake Highland, Colonialtown North , Eola Heights, and College Park or call me to learn more about Downtown Orlando real estate at 407-494-2820.

Just the other day my boyfriend stopped off in Ivanhoe village to meet with someone about a logo design. He stopped by Yalaha bakery
on his way home. It’s a place we have passed by many times but never gone inside. I have always been curious what kind of treats they had!
He brought home a beautiful Tuscan bread, a key lime tart, and some kind of chocolate treat that seemed to be filled with ganache. It was so tasty that once I took a bite I forgot what it was actually called!
This delightful bakery serves German breads and old world tortes and pastries, they offer lunch, and coffee beverages. It is open Monday through Sunday from 8 am - 6 pm. I highly recommend stopping by and will probably make this a weekly routine for myself!
What’s your favorite local Orlando bakery?
