Florida Guide > Shopping
On a trip to our villa this year we decided to totally re-furnish the lounge area and were recommended to Four Corners Furniture at Cagan Crossings. Leaving our villa on Highlands Reserve and heading along the US27 towards the 192, we passed the major junction and found Cagan Crossings located just into Clermont. Well, we purchased a whole new room of furniture and then decided to have a walk around.
The little community is full of character with each building painted a different colour and the rooflines all different shapes; it reminded me of an old-fashioned cowboy town, with tree lined streets and small planted round gardens. We took a stroll in the beautiful sun and decided to stop for lunch at Sarah’s Greek Cuisine. This little café is run by a lovely Greek family and as we couldn’t decide what to try from the very assorted food on show, we chose the lunch platter. We had a choice of beef, lamb, chicken, fish, shrimp or vegetables served with some delicious vegetable rice and a choice of hummus or Greek salad. I had lamb kebab with rice and salad for only $8. 99; the more hungry in the party chose the combo platter including chicken kebab, lamb kebab and kafta kebab for $14. 99.
The food was served quickly and was pronounced delicious by everyone. We could also have chosen between fried fish or chicken with fries or various pitta sandwiches, Greek appetizers and speciality dishes like Moussaka and Greek deserts. The only sad thing was that we couldn’t wash it down with a nice cold beer as they aren’t licensed but they did have a good choice of teas, coffee and soft drinks. It was very hot so we chose to sit inside but there is a lovely seating area outside overlooking a little garden.
Feeling replete, we had a wander around and came across Simka’s sweets and ice cream shop. The younger members of our party decided they still had a ‘corner to fill’ and had a hard choice between around 30 different ice-creams. One went for two scoops of creamy cappuccino and the other had a cookies and cream milk shake. Both were delicious from the small amount we were allowed to sample.
Whilst we were waiting for them we called into Tiffany Nails and Spa and decided to treat ourselves to a pedicure the following day. That was a very pleasant experience and we felt extremely pampered; so much so that later in the holiday several of us returned for various massages and manicures!
Pier Fish and Chips we tried when we had to return to the furniture store as we decided to re-furnish a twin bedroom too! The battered baby calamari were great and the chips, though not traditional English chips, were really tasty. They will deliver too so we made a note of that for one night in the future when we just can’t be bothered to cook! We also saw there was Gator’s Dockside bar and grill, which we never got the chance to try and a farmers market is held every Friday night from 4pm to 7pm at various times of the year with stalls and street entertainers. There is a very large “ $1 $2 $3 shop” for all types of items too.
On the other side of the road there is a large Wal-Mart, Lowes and a Chillis. All of which got a visit at some part of the holiday. All in all Cagan Crossings became our new favourite place- for ‘work’, food and a little pampering!
