    We love it here! Our favorite is the Loaded Baked Potato Soup. We have to have it every time we go to Disneyland, more than once if we can.
    The service is always great. This last November we had a wonderful waiter who was very helpful in assisting us find things for our 2 year old with dietary restrictions. He answered all our questions with a smile and never once made us feel like a bother. He allowed us to “custom create” her kid’s meal to only include the things that she could eat.
    The service is quick and the servers are very attentive, even when it is busy.
    It is outside dining and on Main Street so it can be loud during parades but the kids can see the floats go by from the table.

    The service here was by far the best we had during our current trip to Disneyland! The food was good too.

    We had the loaded baked potato soup, which was delicious. And the cafe steak melt, which was also very good. I thought it would be similar to a philly cheesesteak but it was not. The meat was similar to what you would find in a pulled pork sandwich, there weren’t a lot of caramelized onions in the mix. But it still tasted extremely well.

    Side note: Be aware of the dipping sauce, it’s A-1. I thought it was going to be like an au jus sauce and dunked my sandwich in it!

    I gave the server a hard time about it, joking and he felt so bad he offered a free coffee (which I decline, as it really wasn’t his fault). But he was very gracious about it and very attentive to the tables. He even told me a tip really wasn’t necessary (I still left him a good sized tip!)

    Again it’s outside so if you go on a cool night bring a jacket!

    This is a favorite of ours for lunch. We usually call for a reservation, even if we are in the park when we decide we want to eat here.

    Our son loves the hot dog meal. We tend to favor the sandwiches, the vegetarian sandwich is excellent.

    We have lucked out a few times and eaten here during the afternoon parade, the first time was a coincidence but now we try to plan it that way so we have a little entertainment with our meal.

    What: I had a delicious chicken pot pie! It was like a homemade pot pie, with plenty of veggies and a flaky, buttery crust. It came with yummy grapes, and I had a HUGE glass of milk to go with it.

    I don’t have any kids myself, but the kids I observed seemed to enjoy their food. A little boy at the table next to mine was celebrating his 5th birthday, and the servers brought him ice cream and led the diners in singing “Happy Birthday” to him. It’s a cute little sidewalk cafe, not too busy but not deserted, so it’d be a good place for a “date” meal.

    Be Sure to Try: I’ve been getting the chicken pot pie here for *years*…it’s a consistant favorite, and one evry Park guest should try…you won’t be disappointed!

    What: Lunch – Chef Salad, Club Sandwich, Iced Tea

    Price of Entrees: $24.86

    The sidewalk tables are lovely, but for romance, the Blue Bayou is better

    Be Sure to Try: The Club Sandwich was a chicken breast with bacon on a croissant with lettuce and tomato. Very tasty.

    General tips: I’m pretty sure this restaurant doesn’t take reservations, and it’s one of only 3 restaurants in DL Park to offer waitress service, so try to eat “off schedule” to get a table quickly

    MouseForLess Tip: There is an Annual Pass discount, and I glanced at the desserts and they were HUGE and probably big enough for 2 people to share.

    Extra_Comment: The sidewalk tables are very pleasant, and lots of flowers add to the ambience.

    Price_of_Entrees: $5.49

    We really enjoyed the restaurant. They had good food for the price. The service was wonderful.

    Be Sure to Try: he baked potato soup was wonderful! We came back and ate it again another day.

    Extra_Comment: If you know you are going to want to eat there put in a reservation about the time you want. That way you don’t have to wait a long time to get a table.

    What: lunch, Turkey sandwich, ham croissant sandwich. kids meal of 2 mini hot dogs and fruit and carrots and several desserts.

    Be Sure to Try: the potato soup was ok and so was the turkey roll sandwich. Desserts are huge – share them

    General tips: we ate at 2 – the wait to get in was great but then waiting for our food was a long time. It is hard to wait that long for kids. My daughters food never came. we couldn’t find waiter and then when we found someone they said they would bring it right out and then never did. We finally left and did not leave a tip at all. My daughter was not happy and so all of us were miserable!

    What: breakfast. Delicious cinnamin roll french toast. Came with bacon or sausage. We didn’t want the meat, waiter offered to substitute eggs, potatoes, or fruit.

    Daughter enjoyed mickey waffle.

    Lots of good hot coffee. no refills on hot cocoa.

    Be Sure to Try: cinnamin roll french toast.

    General tips: we went right after the park opened. No waiting. by the time we finished b’fast, there was a line.

    Dollarless tips: We were impressed that they would substitute out for the meat. Many places won’t do that. Price was on the par with IHOP and Dennys, but had a ton more atmosphere !!!

    Outside seating on Main Street….lots to see! VERY quick service…..Mickey waffles and sweet rolls:) This is our favorite breakfast with or without our daughter!

    Dollarless tips: The bigger breakfasts can be shared with a child. Overall, this is a less expensive sit down breakfast meal than others in and around the resort. Discounts available: ASK!!
