J&P's builds on solid grounds 

You know what Orlando needs? More "shoppes," particularly ones that serve bagels in the morning and sandwiches during the day, not to mention a mean cup of coffee.

Look no further than Jason & Paul's Coffee Shoppe (932 N. Mills Ave., 407-447-1577). An offshoot of the J&P's in Port Orange, where they're known for mixing coffee with folk music, the Mills spot leans more toward Thursday night "open mic" singalongs around the cute micro-grand piano. But the real reason to drop by -- aside from the comfy couches -- is several dozen varieties of coffee from beans browned in Jason's own roasting warehouse in Kentucky. Pick up a pound or three.

Order a cup of milky chai and a muffin, or try a "homoccino" (a shake of coffee, milk, sugar and a shot of vanilla, over ice). Whatever your order, Jason & Paul's looks like the start of a community hangout, and that's a good thing.
