Question Chefs, Le Cellier or Sunshine Seasons?

One of these things is not like the other, right? But all three reportedly serve creme brulee which is the one dessert my dad has insisted on trying 'someday' thanks to the High School Musical films. "What is Creme Brulee? ... Oh, sounds good. Get me some of that. ... Hey, does Disney have that cream brew stuff?" Yes dad, they do, and I'm hoping to figure out which of these three places has the better serving so he can cross it off his bucket list. Vanilla or maple would be the only flavors he's willing to try. (Perhaps butterscotch, but I heard that's not at Coral Reef anymore? )

So, for those who have eaten the dessert at any of these establishments: how was it? What desserts are also there for some chocaholics to try? I'm only looking at dessert and not the overall menu because we already have two TS meals to pay for OoP and a third would make my money-conscious parents cringe - especially if I offered to pay for everyone. With the money in mind, Sunshine Seasons pulls ahead because it's QS but based on other sites it seems Le Cellier or Chefs might have the better dish. This guy is hard to please and I don't want to have him grumble about a poor dessert for the rest of the night.

I love the creme brulee at Chefs but it is not maple. I think Le Cellier used to have that one. Don't know of anyone that makes a vanilla unless you mean the standard creme brulee. It that is what he wants to try you can always go to the patissiere (bakery) in France. They sell creme brulee there and lots of other delicious items . You can get some pastries, sit outside and relax.

The standard creme brulee is made with vanilla bean. There are many variations. The Le Cellier maple one is wonderful. We are creme brulee nuts and love trying them all.

TBH, if your father has never tried any, he won't have a point of reference and won't know if it's the best or not. I do believe that in Disney you will get a decent creme brulee. Being money conscious and Disney together in the same sentence can be a challenge. Hopefully it won't detract from your trip.

I agree that in France, the patisserie might be your best bet since you're not going to have a meal, just dessert.

Hope he enjoys it!

I really liked the Creme brle at Le Cellier, but it was the first time I had ever had it so I've got it nothing to compare it too. All I can say is it was yummy!

I've actually had all three! I love creme brulee. Chefs was the WORST. Sunshine Seasons was great. Le Cellier was just ok to me. Best creme brulee I've had at WDW though was at Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD, actually it was the best I've ever had anywhere.

Thank you very much for the input everyone! I think we will see what we can find that doesn't involve another ADR, so the patisserie or Sunshine Seasons for us.

Or maybe WPE if we head to DTD! I'm so surprised to see that the France one had the worst. Guess that goes to show you can't judge a dessert by it's location. What flavor is the one at WPE?

The creme brulee at Chefs/France is outstanding!!

I also recommend that if all you want is creme brulee, just hit the bakery in France.

Not sure the flavor at WPE, it's been a couple years. We may have had an "off" experience at Chefs, but we didn't enjoy our food there (except the outstanding French onion soup) and the service wasn't great. I know lots of people rave about it though. We'd had the creme brle at WPE earlier in the week and the one at Chefs was disappointing to us after that.

WPE was awesome. The bakery in France was OK but not as good as WPE. I'm not a big creme brle fan, but I can't wait to go ack to WPW for more.

I've had creme brulee at all three places and have enjoyed all three.

I particularly like the citrus flavor of the creme brulee at Sunshine Seasons.

Im a huuuuuuuuuuuge fan of WGPE, but i found the creme brulee at chefs better than the one at WGPE. The WGPE might have lost points due to the temperature of the creme brulee and the texture. Now im not sure if you've tried the cheesecake at WGPE? there's a creme brulee topping on it, its simply OUTSTANDING! I could eat a whole cake!

You can pop into Sunshine and just get the desserts too, if you're in that section of Epcot. I'm a chocolate lover and the chocolate mouse cake at Sunshine is fantastic!

And they have a great strawberry shortcake. Sunshine is a good spot for a 'sweets' break!

Crime brle is my favorite dessert and I have tried most of the versions at WDW. My favorite is the key lime creme brle at Jiko, but of the three mentioned in the original post I would go for Le Cellier's maple version. It is amazing. In fact, I made some this afternoon for tomorrow's dessert. Les Chefs' is quite good as well. I did not enjoy the Wolfgang Puck Express version. It had very little flavor, IMO.
