One restaurant Matt visited for a meal before I ever did was The Wave at the Contemporary. He dined there twice, actually, and wasn’t a fan at all. Since then, I’ve stopped in and even been able to get him to agree to give it another try (even for just a flatbread), and he has been a fan ever since those visits. Breakfast, however is our meal of choice here, from the buffet, to just ordering grits and cocktails from the menu.
As is tradition, we started off our meals with a couple of cocktails. Matt stood by his Bloody Mary ($6.50), but I opted to try the Bay Lake Sunrise ($8.50).
The Bay Lake Sunrise is a combination of 4 Orange Vodka, Midori Melon Liqueur, and Sweet and Sour with a splash of Sprite. I know I’m late to the Midori party, but I’m enjoying it! The drink was made quite well, and I’m still trying to figure out where that splash of Sprite was. Plus, you gotta love the stirrers! I think I may prefer this over the Pomegranate Splash.
For breakfast, I played it simple with some of their fantastic Tillamook Cheddar Cheese Grits ($4.99), topped with Nueske’s Smoked Bacon. They were fantastic as usual!
Matt made a special request to see if he could get just biscuits and sausage gravy, knowing that they are offered on the buffet. Our waiter happily obliged and made it happen. When it arrived, there was a big bowl of gravy with two biscuits, and Matt was told if he needed more biscuits, just let him know. I believe this is his new favorite on… err… off the menu.

This has become a go-to spot for us before heading to the Magic Kingdom. What is yours? Do you have a favorite dish at The Wave?
