Happy #tastytuesday on a Thursday friends! As I am a full-time travel advisor, obtaining Boo Bash tickets for my guests was a priority on Tuesday of this week, which is why this blog post is happening today instead. Nevertheless, I am excited to bring you with me to breakfast at the recently reopened Cape May cafe. This table service restaurant used to be a buffet character breakfast where you could meet several of the Sensational Six, but has become an all-you-can-eat family style meal instead after reopening. Let’s check it out together!
Cape May is located right off of the lobby at Disney’s Beach Club resort. It’s a great place to have breakfast, lunch or dinner and then spend some time at Disney’s Boardwalk area or you can even walk/take the Friendship Boats to either Epcot of Hollywood Studios (the skyliner is also another option for Hollywood Studios). There is always something to do in this area!
As per usual, I had noted my allergies of dairy, gluten, and eggs in the reservation on the My Disney Experience app, and also re-confirmed them when I checked in using mobile check-in through the app as well. Above you can see the entire allergy friendly menu. Yes- you can order as much or as little as you want because it’s all-you-can-eat family style! As of right now, the allergy friendly menu is not available through the My Disney Experience app.
Whenever I dine at a family style breakfast, I always order the same drinks: water, POG juice (pineapple, orange, and guava- a WDW staple!), and coffee with either almond milk or soy milk as a non-dairy creamer substitute. POG juice is always amazing and something I highly recommend! The coffee to me is always so-so, but hits the caffeine spot for me. 12/10 for the POG juice and 6/10 for the coffee!
Next up was the fruit cup. If you remember my Chef Mickey’s breakfast review, I am not a fan of fruit with basil on top. Luckily, this fruit did not have basil and it was very fresh and delightful! The strawberries were my favorite part. 8/10 for me!
The next item that I wanted to try off the menu was a coconut yogurt. This is an item that I have not yet seen on any other allergy friendly menu at Walt Disney World, and so I was very curious to try it. I double checked with the cast member that it was dairy, gluten, and egg free, which it was. The yogurt was very sour and acidic. I really wanted so badly to like it, but it reminded me more of a cottage cheese than it did a yogurt. I did put it on a sweet allergy friendly blueberry muffin, which was pretty good, but I would not eat this yogurt by itself. 3/10 for me.
Speaking of the allergy friendly blueberry muffin, an allergy friendly pastry basket was the next set of items that were brought to the table. I was given a blueberry muffin, a bagel, and 2 slices of bread with non-dairy buttery spread. The muffin was delish, 10/10. I love a good muffin! The bagel was really good and tasted great with the non-dairy butter, although it was not toasted. 8/10 for me. The bread was fine, but tasted like a standard allergy friendly bread. 6/10 for me.
And finally, we are onto the main course! So, of course, I got my favorite Mickey waffles. These were brushed with a little bit of powdered sugar, and, like, who doesn’t love a little extra sugar on their allergy friendly waffles? 10/10 always!
And last, but certainly not least, I ordered a plant based/allergy friendly omelette with veggies. Looking at this omelette, it looks soooo real. The charring and the shape tricked my eyes for a moment- but as soon as I bit into it, I could tell that the texture was slightly different than a regular omelette. It was honestly amazing, with the fresh veggies and a little bit of ketchup that I added on the side. 10/10!
All in all, I did enjoy my recent experience at Cape May. Was it my favorite WDW breakfast experience so far this year? No, it wasn’t. But, there were some great items to choose from, and with the cost of $25 for adults and $14 for children, you are getting a lot for your money’s worth.
