Last Summer I stopped by The Artist’s Palette at Saratoga Springs Resort for breakfast. I was torn between two items: Egg Florentine Breakfast Wrap and the Country Breakfast Burrito. Although I chose the Country Burrito that visit, I still wanted to try the Egg Florentine, filled with eggs, spinach, onion and cheese in a spinach tortilla. Upon receiving my order, it appeared small; a fair amount smaller than the aforementioned burrito and some other breakfast wraps/burritos I’ve had on property. I had seen the same order being brought out to a table and thought, “Oh, they must have a kids portion as well.”
Early last year after a menu revamp, Earl of Sandwich took their Veggie sandwich off the menu (although it was said that it could be requested since they had the ingredients on hand). I never had a chance to try it, but it sounded delicious with it’s combination of Feta Cheese, Lettuce, Roma Tomatoes, Cucumber, Red Onion, Roasted Red Peppers, and Mediterranean Dressing. It certainly had its fans.
As of the recent menu changes, the new Veggie features Swiss, Roasted Zucchini, Cabbage, Avocado, Lettuce, Tomato, and Pesto Hummus. The sandwich really isn’t much to look at, and its smell upon opening the wrapper was… pungent.
While I’m typically not a big sweets or chocolate fan, I do like WDW’s Cake Pops. We’ve sampled a couple here on the blog, including a traditional version as well as Jack Skellington. I like how the cake is more on the fudgy-brownie side, and while rich, aren’t overly sweet. This egg-shaped pop caught my eye, primarily due to its vibrant Sulley-esque colors.
Dessert Trio from the Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge
Happy Easter, everyone! We hope you’ve been enjoying your holiday weekend! We’ve had a fun week here on the blog, getting in some much needed park time. Matt and I kicked it off trying the Macaron a la Fleur d’ Oranger from Fleur de Lys at the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. There’s still a month to enjoy it it you haven’t yet! We then visited a place we haven’t been to in a while: Tangierine Cafe for their Lamb Shawarma Platter! We also checked in at The Hollywood Brown Derby Lounge to see how service has progressed over the past several months and check in on menu changes. We then continued our “Snacks From” series with a trip to Mexico for the first time, where we enjoyed some Obleas! Finally, Earl of Sandwich has changed up its menu and has seen some price increases.
Our friends have been busy dining around the parks as well, so be sure to visit their sites!

Our “Snacks from…” series treats you to different snacks found in the World Showcase pavilions at Epcot. Find more reviews here! Continuing our series, we head to Plaza de los Amigos in the Mexico Pavilion!
It looks like this is an Eating WDW first – a Snacks from Mexico! I know I’ve bought snacks there before, but I haven’t reviewed anything here. If you look around a bit in the pavilion and get past all of the Kahlua-flavored items, there are some interesting items to be enjoyed! Matt and I spotted this package of Obleas: Wafers with Goat’s Milk Candy. Goat’s milk!? We had to try it!
The treat consists of two thing wheat wafers held together by a layer of caramel made with goat milk. The package contains 5 individually wrapped sandwiches.
