Viking Coffee

Contains Bailey's (dominant flavor) and something Norwegian


Overall assessment of desserts

Very bready - got to like yeast for the first two!!
Worth a try, but better options at French Patisserie

Not exactly the healthiest treat in the world, but once every visit, my son has to have his waffle from Norway, with confectioner's sugar and chocolate or strawberries on top (they'll "personalize" your waffle if you ask).
I love coconut, and am a fan of the school bread, but only if I have someone to share it with - it's huge !

The Rice Cream is outstanding.

I've always wondered, is the school bread like a donut? It looks good! What's the yellow stuff on top, some sort of buttery cream or custard?

Great photos!

I thought it the best of the 3 desserts. It is made to order. It tastes largely like what my mom used to make. I wouldn't consider it gourmet, but fresh, solid fare.

I have had the rice cream in the past - and would agree that it is probably superior in flavor to these three options. We chose these based on what looked good, what other disboarders had said and trying to maximize the snack credits.

Yellow stuff is custard-like cream - and there's more on the inside of the bread - helps moisturize the bread!

I don't recall seeing one without coconut. Not sure if you could call someone and request a coconut-free version. Unlike the restaurants where you can customize most things, I suspect cannot be customized. You never know, though.

i WANT THE WAFFLE WITH CHOCOLATE!

This might be do-able - the waffles ARE made to order - and they MAY have chocolate in the bakery.

Rice Cream is like a rich rice pudding with strawberry. I have had it - and it is good.

Yes, Rice Cream is much like a rice pudding, only better. It's topped off with a nice layer of fresh strawberries and is absolutely terrific.

Good grief! I think I'm going to end up spending time touring the eateries instead of the parks! Your pictures are always fantastic! Thanks so much for taking the time to post them.

May I hijack momentarily..... ;)

An overlooked - but delightful!!!! - treat, in Norway is (starts with a K....)

I never even asked about it. Ive seen it a million times and skipped it cuz it just looked gross. :lmao:

But this last time, I asked...they said it was potato bread spread with Cinnamon, Butter and Sugar and rolled up. Hmmm, I thought.... I said, Ill take one. One meant Two!!! Two came with an order.

AND OMG! IT WAS AMAZING!!! Deeeeelicious!!!

My son just said the other day - you know what I have a taste for? That cinnamon thing in Norway. Me too, son - me too. ;)

You said the waffles were like your mom made, are you guys Norwegian? We are and I am excited to compare Disney waffles with my grandmother, aunt & mom's waffles! Except we would never deface them with chocolate or whipped cream, our only choices are plain or with a little jam. :)

Doesn't start with a "k" ----- it is lefse! I know many families that make it from scratch as a part of their holiday traditions....I've been involved in many lefse baking days!
