We stayed at Disney’s Beach Club Resort during our latest trip, and this give us the opportunity to fully explore the the Epcot Resorts located around Crescent Lake. One of my favourite finds in this area was Boardwalk Bakery, located on the shore of the lake at Disney’s Boardwalk. Serving house made baked good, soups, salads and sandwiches, Boardwalk Bakery is a quaint quick service perfect for a visit when you’re looking for a break from the Theme Parks
Opening at 6.30am, it is the first of the Quick Serivce Restaurants to open around crescent lake, and this made it a perfect place for us to grab breakfast as we were generally up early with two hungry boys! While not the Quick Serivce located at Beach Club, it was only a short walk for us to get to Boardwalk Bakery, which was actually very pleasant in the cool whilst the sun was rising. With your Resort Refillable Mug now eligible for use at all Walt Disney World Resorts, we could also bring our mugs with us, which was a nice little perk!
We used Boardwalk Bakery on a number of mornings for breakfast, and as such were lucky enough to try a number of their baked goods. Our 4 year old loves pain au chocolat, and as such the bakery became his favourite spot for breakfast, selling (in his opinion) the best “chocolate bread” in Disney.
Boardwalk Bakery provided a number of different breakfast options, including a wide range of pastries and bagels and a number of cooked items, including filled croissants and filled breakfast waffle cones. Whilst we never tried the cooked breakfast options, the range of pastries on offer were delicious, particularly the Danish pastries. There were also a number of different types of bagels available, which made a slightly healthier breakfast option.
We didn’t get the opportunity to try any of the soups, salads or sandwiches available at lunch or dinner, but those behind the counter that we saw certainly looked appetising. I would consider making more of an effort to visit Boardwalk Bakery for lunch or dinner on our next trip purely to try them.
Boardwalk Bakery at Disney’s Boardwalk – Summary
Overall, Boardwalk Bakery quite quickly became a favourite breakfast spot for me. With plenty of choice and tasty options, and a more convenient early opening time, Boardwalk Bakery is the perfect eatery for anyone staying at any of the Walt Disney World Resorts around Crescent Lake.
With a convenient location a short walk from Epcot, Boardwalk Bakery is also the perfect place to head to for a break from the Theme Parks. Grab a seat in the sunshine by the lake and soak up the scenery whilst snacking on a delicious pastry, cupcake or dessert.
