    Great video, AJ! I love Monti Cristo Sammie’s, but can’t get them where I live anymore or in WDW. If I ever get to the DLR, I know exactly where I’m eating!

    We love Cafe Orleans!! My husband loves the Monte Cristo, we heard you could order the Monte Cristo and the all cheese version gluten free (for my mother in law), we made reservations in advance, but we didn’t know you have to order the gluten free version 24 hours in advance! But the pommes frites are amazing, as are the beignets! Definitely planning to go here on our next trip!!

    Hi !

    Just a small correction to the article. Cafe Orleans has always been table service back when it opened as the Creole Cafe in 1966. I know because I waitressed there for 14 years after working at the French Market / Julep Bar. It became Sara Lee’s Cafe Orleans as mentioned. Back then we had a fabulous soda fountain with wonderful sodas, phosphates, malts, shakes and sundaes. We had a large counter – supposedly from the movie The Happiest Millionaire – where we picked up our trays of food to serve. Maybe that’s where the idea of “counter service” came from.
