When the new Boulangerie Patisserie opened a few weeks ago in France’s Epcot, I headed over to check out the new digs. Matt didn’t get to partake, so I just grabbed a bowl of Bisque de Homard, but I knew I had to get him there!
Matt’s eyes grew a bit wide looking at the selections available. He started with the Dinde BLT, a baguette filled with turkey, bacon, lettuce tomato and garlic aioli. The sandwich is served cold, which is fine, but the bacon was also cold, limp and was a bit disappointing because of that. The garlic aioli tasted to Matt to be mustard, which he doesn’t like. Otherwise, the bread and veggies were fresh, and there was a good amount of turkey on the sandwich. If I needed a filling sandwich, I would order it for myself, but it wouldn’t be Matt’s top pick. We didn’t let this go to waste, as I brought it home and was able to snack on it.
He also spotted the Tartes on display and ordered the Fraises featuring vanilla cream topped with strawberries. This was nothing short of fantastic. Not overly sweet, rich, and “healthy” thanks to the strawberries. I was even impressed, not being big on sweets. None of this was left! I think it’s safe to say this dessert is enough reason for Matt to return.
I ordered the Quiche Florentine, a spinach and goat cheese quiche. The round pat in the center is the goat cheese, so you can add as much to each bite of quiche as you like. The cast member asked if I wanted it toasted, to which I said, “yes.” While the exterior warmed up nicely, the center remained quite cool. There was a good amount of spinach tucked inside. While the crust was a bit bland, the filling was really nice, and I’ll certainly order this again.
The Roulé Au Fromage, baguette roll with garlic and cheese, caught our eye as well. This was another item that could be toasted. It was piping hot and was my favorite item of the day! Warm, garlicky, cheesy bread… How can you go wrong? We didn’t completely finish this either, but only because we didn’t want to stuff ourselves. We tucked it into the bag with the Dinde BLT and brought it home as well.
Matt was impressed with the new layout and offerings, and with the additional space, I can see us stopping by more often than the old space. If I want a Roulé Au Fromage, I know all I have to do is mention the strawberry tart and we’ll be in line! Boulangerie Patisserie has earned yet another fan.
