Ale and Compass Breakfast Review Yacht Club Walt Disney World

Ale and Compass Breakfast Review Yacht Club Walt Disney World

Breakfast at Walt Disney World is always a treat, so we’re always thrilled to find a new breakfast or brunch option. Especially on the Disney Boardwalk! We had heard that the breakfast at Ale and Compass was phenomenal, but since we had already had a list of favorite breakfast places at Walt Disney World, could this actually compare? Of course we never turn down a chance to visit The Yacht Club, or wander the Boardwalk in the mornings. So, since we were staying at The Swan nearby, we took a chance and decided to head on over.

Ale and Compass Atmosphere

The Ale and Compass is a combination Restaurant and Lounge. Upon entering you feel a little swanky. Always a great feeling to start the day, we don’t mind saying. Everything is elegant, classy and a little bit of a throwback to a richer time. Even the walls are tailored.

Ale and Compass Buffet 

For some reason one of the more confusing elements of the breakfast was the buffet option. The breakfast menu includes a wide variety of entrees, so why need the buffet as well? The buffet, on the other hand, gets you breakfast meats, cheeses, fruit, pastries and everything you see on the menu below. Know that this option, at 23 dollars a person, also includes an entree! Since our entrees really didn’t go above the 15 per person mark, adding another 8 dollars per person to get some pastries didn’t seem like the best way to spend money. And the entrees were really quite large to begin with. So, should you add the buffet? Dare we say maybe get this option for one person at your table and share a nibble instead? For us, it would have been way too much food and not worth the extra cost.

Alto Mayo Protected Forest Coffee Roasted by Joffrey’s

We also got the French Press Coffee, because we can never get enough fancy coffee. But also because we’re suckers for Supporting Conservation. And Disney supports coffee production as part of the Conservation International’s Alto Mayo Protected Forest project in Peru, which promotes sustainable coffee growing and economic growth. If you’re unfamiliar with the conservation issues surrounding coffee farming it’s important to remember that there are only so many areas that can grow coffee beans. So protecting landscapes, farming shade-grown coffee, and supporting the communities that help make our favorite drink is important.

If you’re read our other restaurant reviews, you know we’re usually on the hunt for vegetables when we’re on a vacation, since for some reason they seem rather scarce at Disney. And as we do tend to eat rather clean at home, having a meal full of carbs and sugar just doesn’t tend to be our go-to choice. But seeing the Slated Caramel-Apple French Toast and Dark Chocolate Waffles with Mascarpone were enough to get us here. Of course we also got the Protein Bowl, which was absolutely amazing, to help even things out. But even then, we’ll admit, it was the chocolate avocado toast that came with the bowl that had us curious. And yes, also delicious.

Ale and Compass Breakfast Options

You may notice in the pics that all of these meals pretty much fill very large plates. From a portion size standpoint we thought the value for the money here was fantastic. Much cheaper on the whole than Be Our Guest for breakfast, and we love that place!   We’d say its comparable actually to our other favorite breakfast place on the Boardwalk. Trattoria al Forno!  So what makes this a good or bad option for breakfast? Pros: Unique meals, excellent variety, great portion sizes, budget friendly, nice atmosphere. Cons: Table Service, so you’ll have to have time to hang out and brunch.  

Breakfast on the Disney Boardwalk

All in all we would say Ale and compass is worth the visit. We like it best for lazier mornings. Perfect for couples, mom and me breakfast dates, a wedding party brunch, a girls day out or even just a nice family meal. If you’re staying at any of the Boardwalk Resorts you may just find that the dinner and lounge menus at Ale and compass also deserve your attention. Definitely one of the more budget-friendly Disney Resort Restaurants! Have you been here? Tell us what you love!
