Here's a novel way to put those favorite snapshots to use: Have them scanned for a "photo cake" at Charlie's Gourmet Pastries.They'll feed your photo into their new computer, which transfers the image onto a sheet cake with white icing (starting at $18). The possibilities are endless: Elvis cakes, birthday-girl cakes, bon voyage cakes.

The photo cakes are one way that this fourth-generation family bakery is still evolving after 28 years in business. Other selections include feather-light cheesecakes, yellow-and-chocolate "checkerboard" cakes and whipped-custard Napoleons. Owner Gary Hawks got the recipes from his father, Charlie Hawks, who was the baker at Wolfie's in Miami Beach during its heyday in the '50s. Photo cakes are usually ready in a day.

Editor's note: This story has been changed to clarify the fact that although Theo's Kitchen no longer operates at this location, it did not go out of business; it relocated to Curry Ford Road.

Theo's Kitchen may be gone from this familiar location, but the space is being kept Greek by Mediterranean Blue, who also did us the favor of sprucing the joint up a bit, stocking eco-friendly wares, and adding a little flair to the menu (read: more cheese for everyone!). 

Said menu is deceptively simple, populated with just a handful of sandwiches and salads, but nearly everything is a winner. The Provence sandwich with ham, brie, herbes de Provence-infused butter and Dijon mustard ($6.50, comes with a side) may be just a Greek Cuban, but it's a delicious trip across the salty-savory spectrum. The more traditional falafel ($6.50 with a side) gets extra points for fresh, soft pita and the choice house-made tzatziki sauce. If doing dinner, a side of olive oil and oregano-garnished Greek fries helps fill you, but it'd be a ' what else ' tragedy not to order it smothered with feta cheese for $2. 

South Orlando blue-collar neighborhood meets fancy beer in a pool hall staffed by cute girls. If you’re looking for good beer in a laid-back atmosphere in a non-hipster-infested neighborhood, this is your bar.
