View Full Version : Are soft drinks included in breakfast buffets?

Can someone please tell me if soft drinks are included in the cost of buffets. I'll be on the dining plan and would like to order a diet coke at Boma for breakfast. (I don't drink coffee, but I love my diet soda fix in the morning!) I'm trying to determine what meal I should pay oop. Many thanks for any info!

I've had a diet coke at Chef Mickey's breakfast. They serve you juice AND coffee with breakfast so I guess if you don't want the coffee you can just ask. It would probably depend on each restaurant so maybe a soda lover who has eaten breakfast at Boma can confirm. ;)

It never hurts to ask. I was offered soda at one breakfast my last trip when I turned down coffee but mentioned that some caffiene would be nice. It didn't seem to be a problem at all and wasn't extra.

Now that I think about it. When I asked my son (4yo) if he wanted milk or juice he said Sprite. The CM just looked at me for approval and I said sure it's vacation.

I never had a problem. I don't drink coffee and I'm not fond of hot tea, so I always asked for (and got) a diet Coke without any difficulties. (And we did 6 breakfast buffets/AYCE, so that's a pretty good sample size! Chef Mickey's, PHD @ Hollywood & Vine, Crystal Palace, Akerhaus, CRT, and Tusker House.)

there is a great breakfast drink at BOMA-West African Frunch (a combination of lemonade, pineapple juice, guava juice, orange juice, and papaya juice).

Thanks so much for the info. I have been trying to figure out which meal to pay for out of pocket, and the info helped me make the best decision. I so appreciate all of the help here on the DIS boards!

PS - I do have a breakfast at Boma scheduled and will definately try the frunch - sounds yummy. Thanks again.
