Review: Great (And Not So Great) Treats At Epcot’s Karamell-Küche!

Lately there has been no shortage of incredible food at Walt Disney World’s Epcot.

But even with all the stellar food at the International Festival of the Arts, I still craved some of my old favorites from everyone’s go-to caramel spot: Karamell-Küche.

Karamell-Küche has become a perennial favorite since its debut in 2010. And why not? It’s a charming stop in World Showcase’s Germany pavilion, and it serves some of the most crave-able sweets in the World. We love the Caramel Corn (and we love watching it be made), but who can resist their unassuming-but-oh-so-amazing Caramel Apple Cookie? We can’t!

And the Caramel Bacon Square is just crazy enough to work! Plus I can always rely on the Sea Salt Chocolate-Covered Caramel to satisfy my sweet/salty tooth (it’s been my on my must-eat list for, like, seven years, y’all!). Just about anything in their shiny glass display cases is delicious. (Well…maybe not the Caramel-Topped Chocolate Brownie. Too dry. Too boring. Too much else to capture my taste buds and attention.)

The menu is pretty self-explanatory, and since the goodies are all on display, you can study your options before making a selection.

And there are so, so many things from which to choose! You will have trouble making a decision, we promise. [Read more…]

Review: Battered Banger and Chips at Epcot’s Rose and Crown Pub

The Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room in the World Showcase at Disney World’s Epcot is an authentic English pub dropped into sunny central Florida. And we love it. Like “can-we-move-in?” love it.

For years, Rose and Crown has earned a reputation as a classic World Showcase spot. Diners satisfy their need for English comfort food like fish and chips and cottage pie while enjoying some of the best pints found in the Parks.

But many visitors to Epcot don’t realize that the no-reservations-needed pub here has an incredible (though small) food menu and atmosphere! Plus — Carl the Bartender!

We know, we know. You want in.

Atmosphere

Rose and Crown Pub and Dining Room gets high marks from diners for the restaurant’s authenticity, and it all starts with the curb appeal.

In fact, Rose and Crown features architecture from three different centuries on its exterior, which is in keeping with the period architecture found throughout the United Kingdom pavilion.

Review: Cranberry Bliss Bar at Main Street Bakery

We love watching the seasons change at Walt Disney World, and not just because pumpkins change into evergreen wreaths overnight (literally!).

No, friends, we love all the seasonal treats that reappear along with the decorations! And the Main Street Bakery is a great place to grab something new (or a returning favorite).

Despite several new breakfast locations opening on Main Street in the morning, we think the Main Street Bakery will retain its popularity. As the home of the Magic Kingdom’s Starbucks, the Main Street Bakery incorporates both fun, Disney-fabulous treats (we love the seasonal and character cupcakes!) and our favorite Starbucks items. This is true of all of the on-property Starbucks locations, so no matter where you find yourself, you’ll have a bunch of goodies to choose from.

On our visit to the Main Street Bakery, we tried one of the returning seasonal items: the Cranberry Bliss Bar. This bar is one of the Starbucks offerings, so if you’re a fan of this one in the real world, you can now enjoy it in the Parks as well.
