We’re stopping by BoardWalk Bakery this morning to take in another unique breakfast option!
The BoardWalk Bakery is pretty much the only counter-service stop on the BoardWalk that offers freshly made eats for breakfast, lunch, and dinner as well as a bakery case full of ever-changing cupcakes and fan favorite standards. This place is my nemesis as a food news blogger, because there’s always something new debuting here and it’s hard to keep up! ;-D
In addition to the eats, this spot is also the refilling station for your Rapid Fill Mugs at the BoardWalk.
Breakfast here has been somewhat pedestrian in the past, with a menu featuring some standard breakfast sandwiches and a daily quiche. (The cinnamon rolls are pretty legit, though!) But we were excited to try a dish that’s getting great reviews from our readers.
Breakfast Waffle Cone
Breakfast pastries like the Jersey Crumb Cake and the Brioche Pull Apart are often the choice for guests grabbing breakfast on their way to an early park fastpass. But recently, they’ve replaced their Breakfast Bread Bowl with a more portable Breakfast Waffle Cone.
The success of other “coned” eats in Disneyland and Disney World recently might have been the driver behind this new “all-in-one.”
The Waffle Cone itself is maple flavored, and the flavor obviously goes well with the Thick-Cut Bacon. While Cheese wasn’t listed as an ingredient on the menu, there is Cheddar Cheese mixed throughout the egg. I was pleasantly surprised, but if you’d prefer not to have it, be sure to mention that when you order.
After taste-testing, we confirmed that this is a good one for eating on the go. The cone is tall and wide enough to hold all the food without getting soft or soggy, and as long as you’re eating with a fork and not trying to do this one ice-cream-cone-style, you should be good to go.
The sweet-salty mix of flavors worked in this dish. It really was like a full plate of breakfast all rolled into a portable, flavorful shell.
The Breakfast Waffle Cone comes with a Fruit Cup of the side. The day I visited, it was a mix of fresh Blueberries and chunks of Pineapple. Nice to not have the standard melon, melon, melon, and sorry half-grape mix.
The price of $8.49 is on par with what you’ll pay for other counter-service full breakfasts. But I was wowed by the sheer amount of food here. When I questioned the cast member about it, she told me that there are five — five?! — eggs in each in cone. There was egg, cheese, and bacon until the very last bite. To be honest, it’s a lot to eat for one person, so there’s always the option to get more bang for your buck and share this one. But that does take a bit of the portability away.
So there you have it. On the heels of reviewing the rather strange Pop-Tarts® Breakfast Sandwich, I was pretty happy with this new option.
And now I’d love to hear your thoughts! Will you be trying the Breakfast Waffle Cone on your next trip to the BoardWalk? Leave a comment and tell me what you think!

With Disney marketing their deals for stays at many of the DVC resorts (30% off) I am surprised that Boardwalk still has such a small amount of counter service options.
Same can be said at Old Key West.
Not everyone stays in a villa or studio and brings their own food.
I don’t mind the melon and grapes too much, what bothers me is the ‘seasonal’ vegetables at most places is always that ratty a$$ corn they serve all freaking year!!!
But Pineapple and Blue Berries are a nice change once in a while!

My first thought was no, I do t think I would try it. But after reading the review, 5 eggs, I maybe would. Sometimes things that are odd are decious!
Whenever my next trip is, I’m def visiting the Boardwalk area and I would def try the breakfast cone. Between that and the fresh fruit cup, it would be more than enough for a breakfast for me.
Yeah…I need to try this! It looks fresh too, so that as a vegetarian I could order without the bacon, too, which is sometimes hard to find at QS locations!
Welp, I now what I’m trying on my way to the parks this Friday.
