It’s been several years since I’ve had a meal at the Grand Floridian Cafe in the Grand Floridian Resort. Our last visit was for lunch was back in 2011! Since I’d never been there for breakfast, I booked a reservation for myself while Matt played golf and before I met up with family of family at Magic Kingdom. I was immediately seated upon arrival at a window table for two near the back of the restaurant.
I decided to kick my meal off with a Florida Sunshine, which features Peach Schnapps, Chambord, Skyy Vodka, and a splash of Orange and Cranberry Juices. The cocktail was well-mixed, and while I could taste a bit of the booze, it wasn’t overbearing and it had a nice balance with the juices. I liked that it wasn’t overly sweet and had a good balance with the tartness of the cranberry juice. It’s a good, fruity, and relatively safe breakfast cocktail.
If you’ve been reading our breakfast posts for a while, you’ll know that Matt’s the one to order pancakes – not me (though the Sweet Potato Pancakes on the breakfast buffet at The Wave are delicious). The Citrus Pancakes are topped with Roasted Pecans and Sun-dried Cranberries and served with House-made Orange Butter. They also come topped with mandarin oranges, drizzled with syrup, and sprinkled with powdered sugar. The meal comes with your choice of Bacon or Sausage, of which I chose bacon.
