Truly one of my favorite grab-and-go spots in Disney World, Starring Rolls is tiny, busy, and has some of the most delicious items I’ve ever tried, including the coveted Butterfinger Cupcake! While not technically a bakery, the shop rivals any of the other contestants with its rows of fresh and unique pastries and baked goods.
Located on the corner of Sunset and Hollywood Boulevards, tucked back from the street, the Starring Rolls Bakery greets you with a bustling outdoor seating area.
Find your way inside the small bakery and, well, by this time I’m usually already in a queue line! Grab a plate and a tray right inside the door and take your time looking at the baked goods as you make your way to the registers.
The “theme” in the bakery is pretty thin, but the art deco design and flour bags on the baker’s rack would indicate that we’re somewhere in the 20’s, 30’s, and early 40’s — Hollywood’s heyday.
Once you’ve gathered your sweets, you’ll see across from the two main registers a menu with drinks, including coffee drinks and coffee syrups, liqueurs, and wines. Yep — they have some fancy bakeries here in Hollywood!
It’s in this area that you can also order sandwiches, but we’re getting ahead of ourselves…
You’ll find delectable baked goods, bagels, huge sandwiches, fudge, and more in this unassuming little bakery, and I suggest that you try a little bit of everything! It actually is quite a versatile place to find a quick bite, but if you’re going to sample those massive cupcakes, I recommend bringing a friend! Here are the photos you’ve been waiting for…
Whew! As you can see, there’s something for everyone in this tiny bakery tucked into Hollywood Studios. It’s a great spot to grab coffee and breakfast once you’ve secured your Toy Story Midway Mania fastpass and you’re on your way to the Tower, or to duck in for a quick bite when the sun’s getting a bit too hot for your taste mid-afternoon!
If you haven’t yet been to Starring Rolls, I urge you to check it out on your next trip. It’s a delightful little spot offering yet another different menu and different style of baked goods from all other bakeries on property. Enjoy!
