In my pursuit to discover the sweet spots of Orlando, I stumbled upon a neighborhood establishment located in the Milk District off of Primrose/Robinson Street at the former location of Spooky Black Cat Cafe.
Se7en Bites has been in business with some of the best restaurants in Orlando, delivering creative dessert mini-pies to locations such as Pom Pom’s and Blue Bird Bake Shop.
Owner and Pastry Chef Trina Gregory-Propst is now expanding upon her magical pies and fabulous desserts to offer breakfast, brunch, lunch, and locally blended coffee from her new storefront.
Chef Trina elevates simple ingredients to create sweet and savory signature recipes that will satisfy your taste buds.
Favorites include her signature Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie, Homemade Biscuits with Peach Ginger Jam, Savory Breakfast Bread Pudding with Hollandaise, Pimento Grilled Cheese and Bacon Sandwich and the Meatloaf Sandwich, a throwback to downtown’s classic Sandwich King (Se7en Bites is in the former Sandwich King location). Weekend must-tastes are the warm Cinnamon Rolls and Biscuits and Gravy.
And, if you’re wondering…the name “Se7en Bites” has quite a special meaning in Chef Trina’s life and food philosophy. Chef Trina has maintained an amazing 187-pound weight loss for more than seven years. Her gastric bypass surgery limits her to just seven bites of each meal, which inspires her to make every bite count.
Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Pecan Pie
Happiness in a tin can – my personal favorite. Brought this pie home with me and it only took one bite a day to satisfy my craving – and cherish the pie a little longer. Made with a salted butter crust mixed with caramelized pecan filling in dark chocolate.
Iced Coffee (left) and Orange Blossom Iced Tea (right)
The coffee is cold brewed overnight to create a full bodied rich taste. I also found the Orange Blossom Iced Tea to be refreshingly different and delightful to have for any time of the day. The tea combines a citrus and floral flavor that is fresh and not too sweet.

Pom Moon Pie Ingredients

Se7en Bites is a new neighborhood gem that is becoming popular among the locals. Many of the dishes are house-made using genuine whole ingredients with consistent quality. The oak paneled walls and booths creates an inviting space for a casual breakfast or lunch. I will have to visit soon to try out their special breakfast items!
