Breakfast at Trattoria al Forno

During a recent trip to Epcot, I started my morning with breakfast at Trattoria al Forno at the BoardWalk Inn. Matt and I had dinner at the restaurant when it first opened, and I’d sampled one of the breakfast dishes the nearby Flying Fish Cafe was temporarily serving breakfast while the restaurant was in its refurb.

I started with a Rossini – Ruffino Prosecco with Italian Wild Strawberry Liqueur, which I enjoyed.

For my meal, I ordered the Cured Italian Meats comes with Tomatoes, Hard-boiled Egg and Cheese with Fonduta. Here, we have bresaola, prosciutto, and salami along with a piece of Parmesan cheese and sliced bread.

The dish is a simple one, but it’s one that I’ve been hoping to see more of at Disney. As someone who tends to shy away from heavier dishes that are carb-heavy, like waffles and pancakes, and doesn’t always just want eggs, it’s a welcomed dish.

For reference, here is the Frittata that I ordered at Flying Fish Cafe.

Overall, I enjoyed my breakfast, although the pace was a bit slow for a restaurant that wasn’t very busy during my late morning meal. It was at least 5 minutes to be greeted after being seated, 10 minutes to receive my drink order, and another 10-15 to receive my food. It seemed to be a bit excessive, especially with the check being dropped off while I was still eating with the comment of, “No rush.” Despite the leisurely meal, I would still return for breakfast. It still seems to be one of the better breakfast options in the Epcot area, especially for someone that can’t just grab a Danish and call it good.

  1. Nice! Very European approach. I must say, though, I am intrigued by those pancakes…

  2. Did you get a new camera? These shots are amazing!

  3. The photos of the cocktail and meats were actually taken with my iPhone 6, while the others were done with my Canon T3. I’ve been using my iPhone a lot lately so I could lug one less item around property with me (though I’m using the “real” camera today!).
