You know, there are few better ways — especially while Soarin’ is undergoing refurb — to start a day at Epcot than a visit to Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie in Epcot’s France Pavilion.
Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie
Even though we talk about Les Halles a lot here on the DFB (it’s one of our Favorite Epcot Restaurants, after all), it still comes as a surprise to lots of guests that you can indeed start your day at Epcot here.
Unique among World Showcase counter service eateries, Les Halles opens at 9:00 am, whereas the rest open along with World Showcase at 11:00AM daily. (Future World spots like Fountain View and Sunshine Seasons are the places you can find breakfast items upon Epcot’s typical 9:00AM opening).
Now, you may think it’s all sweet treats at Les Halles, and if you want to start your day with Mousse au Chocolat, a Napoleon, or even a coffee-infused Café Liégeois, then have at it — you’re on vacation!
But there is a savory little gem we’d like to bring to your attention today, if you haven’t yet sampled this Les Halles staple for yourself: it’s the Roule Lard et Fromage.
That’s rolled Bacon and Cheese. Or a Bacon and Cheese Roll. Or Roll combining the two greatest ingredients on earth.
I think the translation is something close to that ;).
If the name alone doesn’t convince you (Cheese! Pastry! BACON!!), let’s take a closer look! The first glance confirms the presence of both of the star ingredients, with bubbly cheese baked on top of pinwheeled bread and dotted with pieces of bacon.
And while you can’t argue with any of that, things get much more impressive as you peel the wheel of the roll layer by layer, revealing that the chunks of bacon aren’t limited to the smattering on top, but are actually generously baked in between every…
… right down to the last bite!
The cheese is sprinkled on with some restraint, making the Roule far more about the bacon. The flavors come together well, with the use of a fairly mild cheese balancing the salt of the bacon and the buttery taste of the soft bread.
It’s a nice use of a snack credit on the Disney Dining Plan, for sure, but at $3.95, it’s not a bad out of pocket deal at all considering how hearty and tasty it is. Between the bread and the surprising amount of meat packed in the roll, it makes for a truly filling breakfast. (I should note, though, that I believe these are typically sold throughout the day, so if you’re craving some bacon as a later day snack or a mini “Brinner,” this could do the trick for ya!)
So there’s your friendly reminder to be sure to give a good scan to ALL the options in that Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie bakery case… you may just find a new favorite!
