The GRAND FLORIDIAN Café Review:

Updated: Dec 8, 2020


When it comes to Grand Floridian Restaurants at Disney World, there are several options that you need to consider while you are staying at this truly Grand Resort. The everyday dining location within the Grand Floridian Restaurants is te The GRAND FLORIDIAN CAFÉ. This Floridian Restaurant is located in the GRAND FLORIDIAN RESORT AND SPA, IN WALT DISNEY WORLD. This location is one out of five of the sit-down Floridian Restaurant situated in the resort.



In addition to The Grand Floridian Café, you will have access to many other Grand Floridian Restaurants to have you fill. You have the top most exclusive Restaurant in Disney World located among these Floridian Restaurants. This location is VICTORIA AND ALBERTS, and this is a unique ten-course dining experience. Then there is the sit-down Restaurant that accompanies Victoria and Alberts. This experience is called Citricos. The third and final top-level table service Floridian Restaurant is Narcosis.



Once you clear these four fantastic dining options, you have more typical dining fare. These locations include 1900 Park Fare, which is a character buffet. This location offers lots of fun and interaction with the characters that include Cinderella, Prince Charming, The Mad Hatter, The Evil Step-Sisters, and Mary Poppins, to name most. Keep in mind that these do change for the Grand Floridian Breakfast Buffet or Dinner.


Finally, we come to the Grand Floridian Café located on the ground level of the main building. Being one of the Grand Floridian Restaurants, you still should expect excellent, top-notch service. This Floridian Restaurant is a Victorian-themed restaurant that is designed with detailed carpeting. On the walls, you are treated to Victorian-style era wallpaper illustrating flowers. Finally, with Victorian lace curtains and the best of soft lighting to pull the whole atmosphere into a lovely café, you now have a fantastic location to grab a daily meal with the family.



The food is very inviting. We have been on several occasions and will continue to frequent this quaint location. We have had the pleasure of the breakfast, lunch, and dinners service. The Grand Floridian Breakfast service is from 7:30 to 2:00. Then the Restaurant reopens from 5:00 to 9:00 pm.


The feeling is very relaxing as the windows feature their garden area outside the main building. This view is a very soothing feel. The food is made with care, and the portion size is over the top, and that is saying something when it comes to Disney dining. Quality is excellent, and the food is hot and flavorful. My favorite is the onion sour, which is the best. The soup comes out in a white china bowl and uses caution as it's scorching and so worth it.

We just recently visited the GRAND FLORIDIAN CAFÉ. Even with the closures here at Disney, The café has not missed a beat. The staff was so warm and comfortable with the upheaval of the COVID 19. My family and I cannot thank you for the warm feelings that the team us the night we were there. Thank you again. Additionally, we had no difficulty in booking a reservation. The Restaurant had everyone spaced out well for social distancing, and we were very comfortable.



To start, as with other Grand Floridian Restaurants, The café has a full bar so you can order your favorite cocktail. The menu shows wine and beer and a couple of specialties, but they have it all. This occasion, the specialty drink that was ordered is the Florida sunshine. This was a mixture of rum, Chambord, peach, schnapps, cranberry juice, and orange juice presented in a hurricane glass. Other beverages included a ch soda and water with lemon. Yes, the lemon water counts because it was fabulous. Sometimes the water around Seven Seas Lagoon and the Magic Kingdom has a heavy flavor even though it is filtered. So, adding the lemon makes the water just right.



For this evenings course, It is the LOBSTER 'THERMIDOR' Burger*:

The LOBSTER 'THERMIDORE' BURGER:

The Artisanal 7oz Burger Patty and Lobster-Parmesan Thermidor Sauce on a Seared' Brioche Bun served with Café Signature Seasoned French Fries.


The burger did not let anyone down. The size was proper as it was 7oz or more and was made Fresh and THICK. This burger was cooked perfectly and paired perfectly with the lobster thermidor meat and sauce. This combination was very flavorful. The Brioche bun was full and did the duty of holding up to the incredible sized lobster burger. The parmesan cheese was grated over the top of the burger, giving the perfect flavor level but not so much to overpower the lobster and burger. This burger was accompanied by the excellent café season fries, which are fabulous. The diameter of these fries is more significant than steak fries and much longer. The portion was so large. We couldn't finish them. NO ketchup or condiments needed as the seasoning on this burger is all you need.



The second on our list for this evening was The Grand Floridian cafes:

MISO-GLAZED SALMON:

The Miso-glazed Salmon is a Lemon-scented Sticky Rice, French Beans, and Ginger-Soy Vinaigrette.


This dish was unbelievable and flavorful. The SALMON was a very large, more extensive than expected, based on other trips to Disney Restaurants. The Ginger-soy vinaigrette was a delicious pairing to the beautiful Salmon, which tasted fresh. The lightly scented lemon rice was perfect. The lemon flavor was subtle and was not too much. Finally, these flavors are perfectly leveled, so there was no overpowering of the Ginger-Soy vinaigrette on the Salmon, making this dish one of the best fish dinners I've had at not only the Grand Floridian Restaurants but Disney in general.


The third on our list for this evening was THE GRAND Floridian Café:



The Buttermilk-fried Chicken:

The First thing I have to say about The Buttermilk-fried Chicken is WOW!! This Hand-Breaded Chicken comes with 'Loaded' Smashed Potatoes and Warmed Bacon Vinaigrette. This dish was above and beyond in flavor and size. It was massive, as there was not only one, but two pieces of substantial, thick chicken breast. The Hand-Breaded Buttermilk was light and airy, not thick or greasy at all. The 'Loaded' Smashed and warm Bacon Vinaigrette were whipped fluffy and made a dense bed for the two large chicken breast two lay on. The flavor of the Loaded Smashed potatoes was a perfect blending with the Buttermilk-fried chicken. The chicken was all white chicken meat with the buttermilk's flavoring that just melted in your mouth. The three combined couldn't finish this entry along with the other two.


Additionally, the Buttermilk-fried chicken also included a ring of leaf spinach on the plate that I enjoyed very much. You will be taking a chicken home. If you order this entre, you will be taking a bag home.


We all got some of their desserts. The two gentlemen got The Grand FLORIDIAN CAFÉ; Neopolitan Cheesecake. The Neopolitan Cheesecake is comprised of three flavors, Strawberry, Vanilla, and Chocolate. The Neopolitan Cheesecake was fluffy and fantastic. This desert was appropriately sized, and we highly recommend it.


The third dessert was ordered by me and got their allergy-friendly Apple Crisp, which was a fantastic choice. I wanted to try the apple crisp because it falls and doesn't love apple crisp in the fall. I love apple crisp and enjoyed this allergy-friendly dessert. I wasn't missing a bite. The apples were the right size, and the crisp on top was thick and flavorful.


We hope you enjoyed this review of THE GRAND FLORIDIAN CAFÉ. We always have such a wonderful experience visiting here. We love the value of you and quality. Of all the Grand Floridian Restaurants, the Café is the perfect location for size, quality, and price. This location is one of the Floridian Restaurants that you can eat several times during your stay to receive a quality and affordable meal.




We will be here to share more with you to have the best experience with your Dining options during your Walt Disney World Vacation.
