If you’re planning a full day of shopping in Disney Springs, then you’ll need some sustenance. And that begins with the most important meal of the day: breakfast!
Lately there has been no shortage of incredible food at Walt Disney World’s Epcot.
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…]
Okay, I was SUPER PUMPED when I started hearing about the return of a certain favorite sandwich to the Magic Kingdom.
Our roving reporter headed straight to Main Street, U.S.A. to begin a trek to discover the truth behind recent rumors of the return of the treat.
And IT IS!! The Sweet and Spicy Chicken Waffle Sandwich is once again listed along with the Nutella and Fresh Fruit Waffle Sandwich, and the relatively recent addition of the Sausage and Cheddar-stuffed Pretzel.
The Chicken Waffle Sandwich made its return with… a gigantic price increase (womp, womp).
It’s now $10.29. So, there ya go. But still… it’s BACK! So we had to try it to see if it was the same goodness it always was. As a reminder, here’s the sandwich in its previous form. Big Belgian waffle, big chicken, slaw, and arugula. (Can you sense we’re setting you up for disappointment here?) [Read more…]
Belgian waffles have been a staple of the Epcot Food and Wine Festival for the past two years, and I thought it would be fun to feature the Disney Belgian Waffle recipe as we countdown to the 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival!
We’ll feature a few more recipes as we continue the countdown to September 28th! If you try them out, be sure to let us know! 🙂 Stay tuned to our 2012 Epcot Food and Wine Festival pages for all the latest details…

are now available at Whispering Canyon Cafe! Also, the Contempo Cafe has begun serving the large Mickey Waffle, while Sleepy Hollow has stopped serving it.
One food item I crave at all places Disney is the Mickey Waffle. A Disney breakfast staple, the Mickey waffle is deliciously thick, made with malted flour for that one-of-a-kind taste, and often served with maple syrup. Of course, you might also get powdered sugar or even fruit topping on yours!!
Waffles with Mickey’s famous face are also served! You can find him at Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary Resort…
And the Mickey waffle at the All-Star Sports food court, Intermission, is [Read more…]
In honor of the 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival‘s final weekend, I’d like to rattle off a few of my favorite dishes from this year’s 15th Anniversary Event World Showcase Promenade! To see menus, pricing, and more food photos from the Festival, check out our Booth Pages!
Puerto Rico: Medianoche Sandwich and Bacardi Frozen Torched Cherry Colada
The Puerto Rico booth packs a punch this year, with just about everything on the menu being crave-worthy! We particularly loved the Medianoche Sandwich, partly for its name and partly for its incredible, savory taste. What a great mix of flavors!
The perfect accompaniment: a Frozen Torched Cherry Colada. A creamy, icy, sweet treat, this had a very distinctive flavor and texture — truly a winner.
Welcome to the Disney Food Post Round-Up!
The 2010 Epcot Food and Wine Festival may be half over, but there’s still a lot of eating and drinking to do! You can find links to all of our coverage, including reviews of some of the newest events at the festival, here.
And if the World Showcase booths are your destination, we’ve got food pictures, prices, and menus to help you as you plan how to make the most of that stomach space!
Now, on to the Round-Up!
Progress City USA collects another panoply of weird, early 80’s Disney World marketing goodness for us here. The reason why I’m allowed to post it on the round-up is because if you look at the third video, around 6 minutes and 2 seconds in, you’ll see some great footage of the old Top of the World Restaurant at Disney’s Contemporary Resort (the ORIGINAL one). But, all in all, you should watch all the videos. And read the commentary. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry.

I recently had the chance to dine at Kouzzina — Iron Chef Cat Cora’s signature restaurant on the Disney World Boardwalk — for breakfast! I had only had dinner at Kouzzina previously, so I couldn’t wait to see what Chef Dee Foundoukis was cooking up for breakfast. 🙂 Luckily, this was part of the Disney World Five Stars to Mickey Bars event, so I got to take pics of my dining companions’ food as well! Score!
Kouzzina is reminiscent of its predecessor, Spoodles, in that the expanse, high ceilings, and heavy wood decor tend to feel like a big old Mediterranean farm kitchen; but Kouzzina brought a new elegance and simple formality along with the renovation. The restaurant opened in September 2009, and I showcased several photos of the lobby, dining room, and open kitchen in my Kouzzina dinner review.
For breakfast, the restaurant was lit with sun streaming through the floor to ceiling windows and pleasant white noise came consistently from the open kitchen.
It was a relaxing, pleasant place to start a Disney day, plus it was pretty empty. I can highly recommend it for a filling, delicious breakfast if you don’t happen to be [Read more…]
