A lot of our Disney Vacation experience is about food. We LOVE trying new restaurants, especially if it brings us to an amazing resort-like the Grand Floridian. While we generally visit the Grand Floridian Resort at least once a trip, we had not yet eaten at the Grand Floridian Café.
This is strange because it’s by far one of the premier restaurants at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa! But then they all are. We love 1900 Park Fare for both breakfast and dinner with our favorite characters. And you can usually find us at the Enchanted Rose Lounge before any evening events at Magic Kingdom. Though teatime at the Garden View Tea Room is a favorite stop for us on almost every Disney Vacation. So the fact that we had not yet stopped at the Grand Floridian Cafe for Breakfast was surprising!
The Grand Floridian Cafe at Grand Floridian Resort and Spa
Of course, hearing that The Grand Floridian Cafe was amazing for Breakfast and Brunch was what sold it for us. Because we go crazy for a good Brunch at Walt Disney World. Mainly because brunch is the best reason we can find to take it easy and go slow. Something we find a little tough while at Walt Disney World. So, we booked a reservation for a late morning meal and escaped the arriving crowds at Magic Kingdom.
Grand Floridian Cafe Atmosphere
We love being at the Grand Floridian Resort. Having stayed there just once was enough to bring us back during our trips. whether it’s for a cupcake, Tea at the Garden View Tea Room, or just for a break from the heat lounging in the lobby. We love this atmosphere, gift shops, and grounds. This Breakfast at the Grand Floridian Resort and Spa is super elegant! Housed in an amazing glassed-in conservatory that overlooks the garden. The atmosphere at the Grand Floridian Café is much like what you would expect; quiet, calm, and relaxing. Complete with roses on the tables, linens, and quiet music.
Grand Floridian Cafe Breakfast Starter
Breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe starts with some really delicious biscuits and jams while you’re waiting which is great if you’re hungry. We had started the day early to grab some Starbucks from Magic Kingdom and get some pictures before the crowds really started to roll in, so we were definitely ready for food by the time we made it to our mid-morning reservation.
Grand Floridian Café Breakfast Menus
Floridian Pancakes: The showstopper on the menu is the Floridian pancakes, which have pecans, cranberries, and orange butter for a very nice, citrusy flavor. The pancakes were great, but it was a little too much for G to eat as the portion sizes were pretty generous. She also got a tropical splash which is blended strawberries and orange juice. Very refreshing!
Build Your Own Omelets: Rochelle and I both got build-your-own omelets, which essentially just had vegetables and cheese along with a French press for our coffee. The omelets were pretty basic but good. And they came with a hashbrown casserole that was pretty great too. But absolutely perfect for a light brunch before a day in the parks.
Kids Menu: They also have a kids menu if you’re dining with children, which is the standard breakfast menu for kids. This basically means your kids will be happy to know that Mickey-shaped waffles and pancakes are definitely an option here. Check out the Grand Floridian Cafe Menu for all the options.
The Breakfast Table-Service Experience
We were lucky enough to have a fantastic waiter named Robert, who kept us entertained the entire time and really enhanced our experience. Overall, we loved the Grand Floridian Café. It’s always great to be at the Grand Floridian, and with the service, the delicious food, and the relaxing atmosphere, it was a much-needed break from a busy vacation. And best of all, it was pretty budget friendly! At about 25 bucks a person, depending on what you order.
Is the Grand Floridian Cafe Good?
So whether you’re looking for an inexpensive, relaxing girls brunch complete with mimosas, or a chill breakfast with the family, the Grand Floridian Café is definitely worth checking out! We hope you get some downtime to head to this Disney Resort Restaurant for a decadent breakfast and some relaxation!
