Inconsistent but great chill atmosphere! – Stardust is a great hip and local coffee shop if you want to hang out and have a couple of drinks with friends or lovers. The prices and the preparation of your food is inconsistent but the hipster feel makes you overlook that as it seems to be part of the nature of the place. You can eavesdrop on conversations between local Full Sail filmmakers, Vegans, Artists, and Bikesters (not to be confused with "bikers" but the hipsters who ride their bikes to this slightly overrated coffee shop.) One great thing about this venue is that on Mondays it is the Farmer's Market night where local vendors come and sell organic whole foods and products. Not a whole lot of free samples but the vendors are very friendly.
Horrible staff & owner – I went there for three months. Every time I went there & ordered a double vodka it was a different price & pour! I was charged as little as $6 & to as much as $ 16! When I asked about this the staff became offended. I actually became the bad guy! What are they on there? Times are hard, my money is important to me. I want my moneys worth! The owner doesn't care, I emailed him. He sided with his employees. Hes getting rich. So, so what with a complaint. The place is a real rat hole dive that thinks its classy & cool. Beware of a employee named Emily, shes the worst one there!!
If you don't go for wi-fi it is a great place. – the joe was great if you like being served with the Winter Park attitude. If you advertise free wi-fi then why has it never worked??? I consider that to be one of its selling points (as advertised) and if it does not work, well it is not the only place in town with wi-fi for me so what is the point!
An urban coffeehouse in the heart of Audubon Park. – Grab a cup of Joe from an urban coffeehouse in the heart of Audubon Park. Bohemians and hipsters drink a cup of tea or coffee at this eclectic java and video rental combo. The venue is separated in three sections and each has its own vibe. The counter area features pastries in a glass cabinet along with hanging chalkboards with the menu written in chalk. Patrons meander into one room where a red tinsel curtain hangs near a stage and framed photos adorn the walls. The main room has a cafeteria-style setting with an unstained wooden bar with bottles of wine, libations and imported beer selections amongst a hodgepodge of stools, signs and pictures.
Orlando needs more places like Stardust – Since we moved to Orlando, we've been slowly discovering cool little place like Stardust. Dandelion, Drunken Monkey, White Wolf all fall in the same category, but Stardust also has a pretty decent collection of books and independent/foreign films. The food was quite good and if you like beer, you will definitely find something for you. Places like Stardust help create neighborhoods and gives us hope that there's more to Orlando than amusement parks.
Coffee & Movies! YAY! – Coffee and Movies, what a great combination! Two of my favorite things in one place. My sister took me to Stardust one night to rent movies. There is such a diverse movie selection! I love it. There's a bunch of indie films[which i absolutely adore]. The coffee there is also fabulous. When we were there I was also exposed to a wonderful band[which name escapes me..]. It's just a fun place to be.
the best beer and the best films!!! – stardust is a place where you can drink the best beer in town ( cough cough st. brenardus) and rent the best films. on a random night you might hear an amazing band and meet the most amazing people. the regulars are quirky and well as entertainging. stardust is definitly a place i frequent 4 out of the 7 days of the week!!!!
Great Coffee, Great Neighborhood Hideaweay – I just love this place!!!! The people are cool, the food and coffee selections is excellent. It's the perfect place to hang out on a spring afternoon and read the times or grab a quick lunch.
Mario Bava and a cup of java *yikes* – Ahh, wonderful Stardust with your rows of velcroed documentaries, sleepers, foreign and guilty pleasure horror - how I love you! Certainly there is not a better cup of coffee in all of Orlando and for those who are embibers of the fermented they have some of the best ales around. Also, if you are like me then you probably like an accompaniment to your drink and they have some of the freshest sandwiches and salads, many are or are easily made vegetarian and vegan - a welcome find. Watch for poetry and live music some nights.
Get your java fix while perusing a waaaaay cool video/DVD collection. – The Scene
Mellow, laid-back and a tad Bohemian. The store is divided into three sections--a cozy reading room with tables, sofas and all sorts of publications catering to the illuminati (The Paris Review, Harper's etc.); the central hub of commerce where patrons order coffee and pay for/return videos; and the library housing an impressive array of movie gems.
Everything from art house to mainsteam to hard-to-find to just plain odd. Stardust makes it easy for patrons to find what they're looking for, sorting movie titles by country, director and genre. In the mood for Pasolini? Head over to the Italian section and pick up Salo; Herzog? The German wall carries a copy of Fitzcarraldo. Godard, Truffaut, Kurosawa, Kubrick, Bergman, Altman ... they got it all. And don't hesitate to ask the staff for a recommendation--they're well-schooled in film and can help you find that flick you've been meaning to see, but whose title you can't quite recall.
You wouldn't expect a video store to make a great cup of coffee, but they take coffee-brewing seriously here. The Americano, espresso, cappuccino, mocha, latte and cafe au lait are all expertly prepared.
True film buffs, Birkenstock-wearing hipsters and Green Party supporters.
