Virgin Olive Market
Where: 807 N. Orange Ave. (next to Citrus restaurant), in downtown Orlando.
The lowdown: When you walk in there's a bit of confusion, but not in a bad way. It's a good hustle and bustle of folks trying to make this place work. You place your order at the deli cold case (menus are in the basket on top of the counter) and your name is called when the meal is ready. Pay at the register when you are done or right away if you are out the door with take-away. First and foremost, Virgin Olive Market is a fresh fuel stop for the week day business crowd and a new option for downtowners looking to relax with a glass of wine, cold beer and an inexpensive or moderately priced nosh or two.
