As you know, the Main Street Bakery recently re-opened as the first Starbucks location in a Walt Disney World theme park.
Main Street Bakery
Starbucks fans are sure to be lining up for their daily dose of brew. But we’ve had requests for more reviews of the actual baked goods that can now be found at the Bakery.
While some options have remained from the previous Bakery menu, most of the eats and treats now found here are of the official Starbucks variety.
On our recent visit, we picked up a brownie to see if it passed muster… . Read on to see!
The Main Street Bakery has been expanded and updated for a new look and feel. However, the turn-of-the-century charm still remains in the decor elements.
Notice a few of the “hidden mermaids” in the new look! These are a fun Starbucks-ified play on hidden Mickeys!
Cast members are busy handling the crowds at the new Starbucks location!
And guests will find their standard Starbucks add-ins neatly set up on an island in the middle of the store.
Looking around the bakery we didn’t spot many bakery items unique to Disney’s former Bakery except for the cupcakes.
Red Velvet and Peanut Butter Cup were the flavors when we were there!
The scones and breads looked very good; but I already know that I’m a huge fan of Starbucks’ lemon pound cake, so I’m biased.
Then we came to the brownies and cookies! I’ve been asked many times if the brownies and cookies are authentic to Disney’s original bakery, and while I think there may be some Disney-esque quality to those cookies, the brownies are primarily from Starbucks.
We chose a brownie with nuts, which was fantastic, actually! Very chocolatey and moist, and big enough to share. And after spotting this same brownie at a Starbucks outside Walt Disney World, we’re fairly certain that it’s not an original Disney creation. Still, it’s a good pick if you’re looking for something sweet on a walk down Main Street, U.S.A.!
Paired with an ice cold green tea, it was an ideal snack to build up some immediate park touring energy.
So, I think I’m taking the standpoint of acceptance on this one. The new baked goods aren’t necessarily Disney, but they’re not bad. I’m just hoping they eventually bring one of those Starbucks toffee brownie things to the park. I lurve those!!
