It’s been a while since we’ve visited one of my favorite nosh spots: Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney. That’s right… it’s Earl’s, Disneyland-style!
We’re back for a quick visit because I couldn’t wait to dig into the Pepperoni Pizza Bread (and I maaaay have grabbed a few other items, too). The ingredients are exactly what you’d figure: sauce, cheese, and pepperoni on bread.
But here’s the kicker — it’s not just any bread. It’s Earl of Sandwich bread… which means it’s toasted to a wonderfully crisp golden brown, perfect for withstanding the toppings and not becoming limp or bland as can happen with a more typical flatbread.
And THAT makes all the difference. Highly recommended if you can part with your favorite sandwich on your next visit!
I also went with the altogether summery Berry Chicken Almond Salad. It’s a spring mix of greens combined with grilled chicken, strawberries, blueberries, and plenty of slivered almonds with balsamic vinaigrette.
Colorful, fresh, and tasty — it’s all there with this one.
If you’re looking to indulge in Earl’s but still stay on the healthier or lighter side of things, this is a terrific option.
Now, have I ever showed you my Earl’s go-to meal? It’s pretty simple, really — I grab the Kids’ Turkey ‘n Swiss (it’s topped with a little mayo) and pair it up with a side of Tomato Soup. Perfect for dipping!
The Kids’ sandwiches are — in my opinion — a bit small, even considering that they are made for children. But pairing it with the Tomato Soup makes things just about right. It’s a little basic, maybe, but delicious.
PLUS, a smaller meal means you’ll have room for this little gem — the Raspberry Crumb Cake — which I just have to point out so you don’t walk right past it among the pre-packaged options.
It’s a moist vanilla cake with a crispy crumble topping swirled with a raspberry jam ribbon.
The mix of raspberry and vanilla reminded me of those Knott’s Berry Farm Raspberry Shortbread Cookies. SO. GOOD!
Oh, Earl — you still have my heart! After many, many, MANY meals here, it never disappoints, and I always look forward to my next visit… no matter how recent the last one was.
