Disney World Bakery Throw Down: Boulangerie Patisserie

Welcome back to the Disney World Bakery Throw Down! Today we’re highlighting the second bakery in the Throw Down: the France pavilion’s Boulangerie Patisserie.

Boulangerie Patisserie Epcot

Atmosphere
The bakery, which specializes in breads and sweet pastries, is located toward the back of the France pavilion in Epcot’s World Showcase. (Just follow your nose, and you’ll find it!) As you would expect from a World Showcase shop, it’s themed to look like a bakery native to a small French village. Welcoming window displays draw you inside, and bistro tables line the sidewalk outside.

Inside, you’re greeted by a lovely baker’s rack full of delicious-looking baked goods, baking paraphernalia, and a wide-open French cookbook, giving you the idea that the bakers are hard at work at the ovens.

Keep walking to your left, where your eyes are invited to take in rows and rows of sugary, frosted pastries and savory sandwiches and cheese. The bakery is set up with two identical showcases on either side of a long aisle. This lets twice as many people through at once, but you’ll often still encounter lines… this place is popular!

Eats
Before you take a look at any of my bakery eats photos, you must go over to Ryan Wilson’s Main Street Gazette post about the Boulangerie Patisserie. It’s headlined with one of the most tempting photos of the bakery’s goods I’ve ever seen…

Now that you’ve whet your appetite, here we go down the center aisle of the Boulangerie Patisserie! We start with a few savory items, such as those delicious cheese plates, quiche, rustic ham and cheese tartine, baguettes with jambon (ham) and fromage (cheese), and cheese-filled croissants.

If you can still walk with all of those baked goods in your belly, head out to the beautiful perfume shops on the other side of the pavilion, visit Belle and the Beast in Belle’s library, or head over to watch Impressions de France in the theater at back of the pavilion. Have a wonderful day in Epcot!

    We were there in April and we tried the cream horns and napoleons-they were SOOOO good-I will have to try different things next time-the only problem we had her was that there was only one person in the whole place that spoke ANY English-we had a hard time communicating with them-

  2. AJ says:

    Thanks for your comment, Jolynn! Yikes — I guess that’s a good opportunity to work on my French!

  3. Watch Me Eat says:

    They definitely have some of the best pastries in Orlando, in or out of Disney. I just wish buying the baked goods here didn’t require an $80 admission ticket…

  4. Edeth says:

    Wowzers, it’s a good thing I had just filled up with lunch before taking a look at all those great looking foods! The pastries look awesome.

  5. chris says:

    I had to go with Main Street Bakery in the MK, but after seeing your photos, I might have to try this one out again. I was just there last week and the line was loooong.

  6. Cody says:

    This bakery throwdown is SOO hard to choose, i still havent voted! This bakery is delish and so are the Boardwalk and Starring Rolls…I have NO CLUE what to vote fore

  7. Thanks for the link and high praise!

    Those are some great photographs you took inside the Patisserie, they made me very very hungry! Although, it appears that they have changed their Raspberry Schuss recipe, it used to be very thick and rectangle (seen to the left of my cheese plate). I can’t wait to get back here in a few weeks…

  8. AJ says:

    Watch Me Eat — The $80 is a definite downside. That’s when you high tail it over to the Boardwalk Bakery!

    Edeth — Well done eating lunch first! It’s about time for dinner, so I’m avoiding that cream puff photo like the plague.

    Chris — I hadn’t been in the boulangerie for several years until recently, and it was like a whole new world. Love it now.

    Cody — Ha! I’m with you. I finally broke down and voted, but it was a tough choice…

    Ryan — My pleasure. I still love that photo and blog post. Looking forward to your posts from the World in a few weeks. I wonder about the change of recipe; if you find out, will you let me know?

  9. Jeff says:

    Ah! You’ve posted my favorite bakery!

    I tell you, though, it was really tough choosing between the Boulangerie and Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe. Really, though, I haven’t been disappointed in any of the World’s pastry shops.

    (And now I’m hungry.)

  10. AJ says:

    I hear that, Jeff! Again — keep me way from that cream puff photo!

  11. Ryan says:

    I’ll let you know what I find out!

  12. AJ says:

    Thank you, Ryan!

  13. Tyler says:

    This bakery made literally the best food I’ve ever had at a Disney World, or any theme park for that matter. Their ham and cheese tartines and croissants were so good that we bought another ticket to come back the next day to eat lunch there again! Unbelievably good.

  14. AJ says:

    Thanks for the review, Tyler!!

  15. Diann says:

    Why have the napoleons changed? In October they were the flakey delights that we remembered but in April of this year we were sorely disappointed in the taste and quality and texture. We remembered them being coated on confectioners sugar and contained no chocolate….what happened?
