Today, we’re stopping by Isle of Java at Disney’s Animal Kingdom for a quick caffeine jolt!
You’ll find this little kiosk once you meander through the Discovery Island Oasis exhibits in the middle of the park. It’s stationed just outside of Disney Outfitters.
A peek at the menu here actually turns up some really interesting options! You can, for instance, have an Island Cappuccino, which features white chocolate — and Captain Morgan’s Spiced Rum! Note to self: remember this. 🙂
But the real news here are some of the pastry options on the menu — especially the Cotton Top Tamarin Cupcake!
This is one of my fa-vor-ite cupcakes in Animal Kingdom (next to the Elephant cupcake, of course)!
They also had a few other goodies, like freshly baked cookies and the Turtle Brownie!
But plain and simple, I was hot and needed a little jolt of java. So I went with the Iced Coffee. You can choose from French Vanilla or Mocha. I went with the latter.
Now, I’m usually a tea-drinker, but I’ll occasionally make allowances when it comes to iced coffee and an exhausted AJ!
And this answered that call well. Tasting equally of coffee and vanilla, it was sweet and rich — not bad!
And when you’re craving your cup o’ joe, but can’t stand the thought of walking around with hot coffee on a hot day, this is a good option.
It will be interesting to see what becomes of the selections at Isle of Java as Joffrey’s has been named Disney’s coffee provider.
As good as this was, I still think of it as “coffee light.” It doesn’t have the “oomph” that real coffee — or even real iced coffee — has. (But it’s still yum!)
So let’s hear from you: would you consider the iced coffee at Isle of Java to be adequate for your morning or afternoon cup? Let us know in comments!
