While Coronado Springs Resort in Walt Disney World has a lot of charm and many fans (myself included!), it’s a little slim on meal options.
See, the resort’s table-service restaurant, Maya Grill, is only open for dinner these days; and the counter-service Pepper Market has gone buffet for breakfast and lunch, and closes from 2 p.m. until dinner. So sometimes it’s hard to find a bite to eat outside of Siesta’s Pool Bar. And while pool bars are charming, that might not be quite the vibe you’re seeking.
Enter Cafe Rix.
This is the only grab and go option for you at Coronado Springs. But does it offer what busy families and convention-goers really need to fuel up for a day at Disney? Let’s take a peek inside!
Decorated in a Mediterranean style, the cafe offers a little something for everyone.
Fresh fruit, wine, and newspapers are available, in addition to prepared cold items. I’m also totally digging on those lantern-like, Mexican light fixtures! That’s one of the things I love about Coronado Springs; it really is a charmingly beautiful resort.
Banks of refrigerated cases hold a selection of sandwiches, wraps, salads, and bottled beverages. Do you see your favorite here?
Nearby, you’ll find the resort’s refillable mugs for sale.
Located adjacent to the cold cases are other refrigerators that are well stocked with a selection of bottled beverages, including beer and wine. Right next to cases, guests can fill up their mugs at the beverage station.
There is a small selection of pastries, ranging from fruit tarts and crème brûlée to cheesecake and other seasonal cakes. I don’t know about you, but I’m preeeetty sure I need to find out what that whole Oreo business is down there in the lower right hand corner.
But don’t forget to save room for gelato (the most Mexican of treats, of course??!??!)! With TWELVE different varieties, this is an awesome place to grab a cold and refreshing cup!
While selection is a little slim, Cafe Rix does offer some options if you’re starving and find yourself in need of a meal (or beverage) before the Pepper Market opens for its counter service dinner. Plus, it’s a great spot to grab some breakfast before heading out to the bus stop for a day at the parks!
