Build-your-own pizza restaurants seem to pop up everywhere these days, but there’s at least one with an immersive environment you might not expect.

The Restaurant 

The Pizza Press, founded in 2012, aims to make everyone enjoy a newsworthy experience while dining. The restaurant’s theme is inspired by 1920s American journalism, when someone selling a newspaper was a common sight on every street corner. 

The restaurant decor feels reminiscent of the Industrial Revolution, with exposed brick and a simple black and white color scheme throughout. Old articles and photographs showcasing the newspaper business deck out the walls, so visitors get a dose of history alongside their piece of pie.

Growing up, I always wanted to live in a town with a local bookstore, and when I moved to Winter Garden, I was thrilled to find one with a name I could relate to: Writer’s Block Bookstore.


Writer’s Block Bookstore opened its Winter Garden location in 2020, six years after opening its first store in Winter Park. The store began with the hope of providing a literary community in areas where one was lacking, and it delivers on that everyday.
