It’s no secret we love our breakfast and our coffee! So, it has become customary anytime we make a visit to Disney property or even just plan to be in the general vicinity, we try to snag some top-notch grub to start our day like kings. Being that we were already staying at Port Orleans_ Riverside, we had planned to catch a nice breakfast on property and preferably something none of us had ever tried before. This made Cape May Cafe an easy decision, especially with the fact that it is an all you can eat buffet. A fat boy’s kryptonite! Enough with the riffraff, lets break this thing down!
Nestled inside Disney’s Beach Club Resort, Cape May Cafe gives you that classy yet laid back vibe which is what the entire resort exudes as well. When you get seated, the server takes your drink order, and you can choose coke products, coffee, tea, water and various juices. I opted for the guava passionfruit juice which closely resembles the Stitch juice made famous by Ohana at the Polynesian. A bread service is automatically offered so after your drinks come the servers will bring you a basket of delicious, salted caramel beach buns. These are so incredible and when topped with the included vanilla cream sauce, they are phenomenal! The buffet provides a vast offering of your favorite breakfast staples as well as some creative spins on other common items. You have your bacon, sausage and a ham carving station providing the meats. There are scrambled eggs, mini cheddar biscuits which are to die for when topped with the warm sausage gravy. Potatoes O’Brien are in the mix as well as grits, and these little hashbrown cupcakes with a poached egg on top! SO GOOD! You also have various starches like pancakes, French toast, crepes and the ever so famous Mickey and Minnie waffles. Syrup is provided at the table by your server so have no fear the sweet sticky stuff will be there. A portion of the buffet is also devoted to the kiddos and is actually set low so they can self-serve Mickey and Minnie waffles, scrambled eggs, bacon and tater tots! All in all, the food was a grand slam in our book.
Just a glimpse at the offerings we took advantage of. Whatever you put on your plate, you cannot go wrong!
Cape May is a great place to catch a meal and in doing so, it gives you access to Yacht Club, Boardwalk, and the Swan & Dolphin Resort areas making it a great cheap way to make a day of leisure and exploration of new places. We actually took advantage of this by renting a pontoon after our meal and cruising down the river towards Hollywood Studios and through all the different resorts! Priced at $45 per half hour, it’s not a bad way to get a unique glimpse of this resort loop and have up close encounters with the Friendship boats! In general, just being able to take in several different resort vibes in one morning is a truly awesome experience. Even just a 20-minute walk around the boardwalk while waiting for our reservation felt like an adventure! If you’re looking for something to do with a slower pace, I urge you take note of this blog and do it for yourself!
As our journey continues, I want to take a moment to thank all of you that have followed and supported us to this point. It has been a whirlwind in only 6 short months, and we couldn’t be more grateful! So, cheers to every single one of you and here’s to many many more adventures in the future.
