Out of all our stays at the Grand Floridian Resort, for some reason we had never eaten breakfast at the Grand Floridian Cafe. Having enjoyed dinner there several times, a breakfast at this hidden gem was well overdue. The Grand Floridian Cafe is a beautiful, timeless table service restaurant overlooking the gardens at the back of the resort. I love to eat here as its often quiet, has a relaxed atmosphere and due to its size you can usually book an on the day reservation.
On the day of our breakfast we had mid morning plans over at Magic Kingdom, so made an 8am reservation. Upon arrival, the restaurant was fairly quiet and we were taken straight to our table. We were then greeted by our lovely server who took our drinks order and left us with the menus to look over. Quinn ordered the kids milk, myself a cup of English Breakfast tea and Kevin a regular coffee.
The Grand Floridian boasts an impressive menu choice for both the adults and kids, so much so that I didn’t know what to order! While we were debating over the menu, our server brought out a plate of warm biscuits accompanied with some maple syrup. They were absolutely delicious and it didn’t take very long for them to disappear from our table!
We were finally ready to place our order and our food came quite swiftly. Our Little Peter Pan decided on the Minnie’s Grand Cake which was a huge mouse shaped pancake, accompanied with some Mickey sprinkles. Quinn said his pancake was delicious, but of course he didn’t manage to eat it all as it was such a huge portion!
I chose the Old Fashioned Buttermilk Pancakes which came served with my choice of bacon. I also opted for the add on enhancement of banana, chantilly cream and caramel sauce. I instantly regretted this decision when I saw how how big my portion was, but the pancakes were just amazing and I gave it a fair shot!
Kevin chose the Steak and Eggs which came served with a cheesy hash brown casserole and house made steak sauce. He was so impressed he said that it was the best breakfast he had ever had, not just on Disney property, anywhere!
Needless to say we left with full stomachs after our delightful breakfast. I would thoroughly recommend the Grand Floridian Cafe breakfast for a relaxing, slow paced breakfast filled with a variety of fresh cooked food. Its also a nice alternative for those families who prefer a non character or buffet breakfast. My mouth is watering as I type this and I can’t wait for our Christmas trip to come around so we can visit again!
