VISIT GOTHA, WHERE THE YELLOW DOG EATS.........
And So Can You!
Have you ever wondered about the history behind Yellow Dog eats? We did too, and decided to investigate. This humble and hip café in Gotha is an enjoyable hang out for all Orlando residents in the know, but most are not aware of the story behind it. Following the founding of the town of Gotha in 1885, tax records from the time demonstrate Fritz Moritz as the owner of the land where Yellow Dog now sits. They operated a boarding house in the area. Eventually they sold the property to a HP Hill.
And in 1909 Elise Brockman, a single woman, bought the property to build a new residence which was completed in 1910. Over the years the property went through a number of transformations, from a boarding house, to a living space, to a store and even the town's grocer.
Up until 1999 the store functioned as a general store when it was then converted into Yellow Dog Eats. If you’ve never been to Yellow Dog Eats now is the time to visit. Even during the pandemic, they’ve taken major steps to ensure the safety and the health of their customers. All of their menus derive from the culinary genius of Chef Fish Morgan and you'll really get a kick out of the funny names they came up with for their meals. Add a wine or beer to your meal and you’ve got the perfect Yellow Dog combination.
Let’s all do our part to support local business during this time and grab some delicious food at Yellow Dog Eats! And say hi to Fish while you're there!
