A Visit to Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie!


Just last month, Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie opened at Epcot’s France Pavilion in World Showcase.  I had the pleasure of visiting a couple of weeks ago to check it out and grab a snack while I was there, though I would have liked to have quite a few of the snacks they were serving!  Everything looked (and smelled) delicious!

One of the great things about the bakery is that it now opens at 9:00 am, before World Showcase opens at 11:00 am.  What better way to start your Disney day than with a cappuccino, coffee or latte with a delicious pastry like a chocolate croissant?  Especially if you can grab an outdoor table in the morning Florida sunshine!  Absolutely perfect!  There is also an indoor dining area with tables and chairs, as well as small tables you can stand at and enjoy your snack.

The selection of food is set up in glass cases that form a “U” shape.  Guests form a line in the center.  From there they can choose to go left or right (both sides have the same selections, as well as registers to check out).  There are screens above the waiting area that show the menus.   I didn’t even have to look at the menu, I already knew what I was there for - crème brulee!  Along with the crème brulee and pastries are other delicious sweets such as eclairs filled with custard, chocolate mousse, chocolate chip cookies and coconut macaroons – just for starters! 

If you don't have much of a sweet tooth, there are plenty of other options, too.  With ham and cheese on a croissant or with a baguette or the turkey and brie with a baguette, you can grab a lunch or light dinner here.  There are also lobster bisque and pumpkin soups as well as salads available.  Do you fancy quiche?  Try the Quiche Florentine (spinach and goat cheese) or the Quiche Lorraine (ham and gruyere).  Baguettes fresh from the oven are an option along with the delicious Roule au Fromage (garlic and cheese roll).  And let's not forget that you can top off your French cuisine with a glass of wine, champagne or some beer! 

Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie is Disney Dining Plan participating restaurant.  Even better, all of the food items on the menu are less than ten dollars each!  This is a great option for those who are looking for a quick, inexpensive but delicious bite to eat. 

After enjoying my oh-so-yummy creme brulee, I can say that Les Halles Boulangerie & Pâtisserie will be on my must-do list for future Walt Disney World vacations.  Whether it be for a sandwich on a baguette or something sweet, I can see this lovely place quickly becoming one of my favorite quick service stops!

Paddlefish Restaurant at Disney Springs

After arriving in Walt Disney World around dinnertime with no reservations on our latest trip, we headed over to Disney Springs to see what was available and Paddlefish caught our eye with the beautiful boat shining on the water.  There was space for us at the bar where they serve the full menu, so we settled right in for what was about to be a delicious dinner. We started with cocktails and were very impressed by not only the cocktail selection, but also the bartender's knowledge and expertise on the menu to guide us through our selections tonight.  At the recommendation of the staff, we had to give the Lobster Corn Dogs a try for our appetizer.  These were so fun and very delicious (and I don't normally like lobster!) They are most like a corn dog in that they are on a stick, but don't let that stop you from giving these a try.  Next up it was time for our entrees, we both opted for options "from the port" since we were in a seafood inspired restaurant, we could

Disney's BoardWalk Inn Review

From the eclectic décor to the panoramic views of Crescent Lake, the BoardWalk Inn gives you the sense that you have stepped back in time.  That time being circa 1920-1940’s Atlantic City.  The exterior of the hotel is reminiscent of the seaside buildings that could be found along the Boardwalk from that bygone era full of old time glitz and glamour.  Driving through the port couture at the front of the building, surrounded by finely manicured gardens you are met with enthusiastic porters that are there to welcome you home as they take your bags and guide you into the hotel lobby. Chandelier in the Lobby Once inside, the eclectic furnishings are precise replicas of what you would expect to find in the grandest hotels from that moment in time.  As you enter the lobby, look up to see the beautiful chandelier made of antique carousel horses that sits high above the lobby with the check in desk located to your left as well as a small sundry shop and the hallway that leads to the villa
