Located at Coronado Springs Resort, Cafe Rix is the quick service option feeding hungry guests from 6am until midnight. The restaurant is located just off the lobby, behind Panchito’s gift shop, and has a small dining area off to its side. Its menu is fairly small, serving American standards, pastries, gelato, and a few ready-to-go items.
Items are made in advance and kept warm for a quick grab-and-go.
Looking at the menu, I thought about giving the Rix Club Sandwich a try, but the Cuban Sandwich won my pick since I enjoy them so much. It would be a good constant for me. I wasn’t too enthused about grabbing an item from the heat lamp, but at least I know that Cuban sandwiches don’t have to worry about wilted lettuce or tomatoes getting mushy.
The sandwich was pretty standard, but decent. None of the elements stood out (the roast pork can play a HUGE role in this sandwich!), but I’d order it again. The only bummer were the Ruffles chips. With so many places on property selling house-made chips, seeing those industrial sized bags are a bit of a let down.
If you’re looking for the healthy treats, they have that in the coolers.
Or you can say “Forget the diet!” and indulge a bit. The Chocolate Mousse is decent if it’s anything like this one from ABC Commissary at Hollywood Studios. This one sounds even better with Crushed Oreos and Whipped Cream!
With all of their entrees squeaking in under the $9 mark, Cafe Rix is a pretty good deal. If you have more time, I recommend sitting down at Pepper Market. Shortly after our visit there (and subsequent review), it changed over to a buffet breakfast and lunch with quick service style dinner. If you’re visiting for dinner, I also recommend Maya Grill. While I haven’t reviewed it here, I have visited and had a pleasant experience, and their menu is reasonably priced for table service.
