Bummer! I was kinda looking forward to a Cape May Breakfast one of these trips.

And you're not alone concerning the Mickey waffles.
For some reason on the first trip in 2007 they seemed wonderful, but this last trip I was NOT impressed. Wanted to be, but I really wasn't feeling it.

After this report, I'm glad we have a BOMA breakfast planned!!

Oh no!!!! Not a Mickey waffle fan?? I hope that you will allow this Mickey waffle lover to still follow along! That's ok, I'm pretty sure that I am in a minority with not being a lover of the vahlrona chocolate cake at CG!

I do love seeing all the holiday versions of the treats. Disney does such a great job with the cupcakes, cookies, and other goodies at Christmas.

I'm a die hard Beach Club fan but have never made it to CM for breakfast... guess I'm not missing anything. Will stick to Beaches 'n Cream and Yachtsman, I guess.

Sorry you didn't have a better experience. Really enjoying your reviews, as always.

Sorry Cape May was so lousy! I really do love breakfast at Crystal Palace, but maybe its the characters more than the food?! I'm just not a big buffet person, even for breakfast. I mean, when you can go to Kona???

Oh, and by the way....the gingerbread cupcake at Starring Rolls...A-MAZING!

I am glad I read the CMC breakfast and Kona parts of this report. DD and I have a mother/daughter breakfast scheduled at Kona in Feb. I am glad I picked it now. It is a new restaurant for us. We were all going to go to the breakfast at CMC before we left for home in Feb but I just couldn't see spending that much money on breakfast.

Its not that the breakfast was bad it just wasnt worth the money for what you got and if you are not staying around those resorts its not worth the trek over to it

Now, I normally love Mickey Waffles, but these were just not good at all. But we did have fun with the characters, didn't we?

Des supposedly worked on those pictures today; I'll know when Andy gets home from "date night" tonight.
I was dreading that day, I wanted to stay until the end with you but alas, we have to work to pay for these trips The food was eh, nothing exciting. Honestly I liked Kona much better and the food was brought to us so we were able to sit and talk in a relaxing manner I think the food was sitting for a while and it wasnt super fresh

Too bad Cape May breakfast is slipping. My parents enjoyed the Cape May clam bake, again this year. They said it was off the charts! It could be different staff? Oh well, the atmosphere is so pretty, it's a shame. I hope they step it back up!
I dont like Belgian waffles either...give me Eggo and I am one happy girl! When we first ate at Cape May years ago it was excellent and much cheaper than it is now but the last few times it was nothing special. The clam bake we love, that is always a hit with us

I really want to go back to Crystal Palace, its been 4 years since we had breakfast there and I miss it!

One thing that really left me leaving this place disappointed was that it did not have a fresh omelet station. For the price of the buffet the least they can do is have a fresh omelete station. I'm really not into pre-made eggs sitting on a steam table. I did ask the server if I could have an omelete made up. She was not overly excited by the request but did put in an order. It took 20 minutes to get that omelete. I'm not a big breakfast eater; my daily routine is a bowl of Cheerios with almond milk and a banana. Perhaps it's more me and not Cape May?
Normally we loved this place but this time it was boring and the food wasnt that wonderful. Characters are not a must do for Todd and I, for us its all about the food. Boma is hands down the best breakfast buffet out there. I cannot believe it took 20 minutes to cook an omelet! Thats just nuts. Todd and I drink protein shakes for breakfast but on vacation we are huge breakfast eaters

Thank goodness I'm not alone on my distaste for waffles, they are cute though!

DInner is still a good time for us, the food is very good and there is a huge selection

I do not like that little room at all! THey have tried to seat us there many times, for breakfast and dinner, but each time I refuse to sit there. You feel so closed off from the rest of the place.

Sure hope your breakfast was an exception and not the new trend for CM breakfast!

We love Boma breakfast, too...and yes, the selection is better at Boma.
Hi Cathy! I did like the quiche but the fruit was terrible. Never had a bad breakfast at CM before, and to pay those high prices and the food isnt that great...ouch!

The cost of everything is so expensive! We used to pay $15 for breakast and $25 for dinner...its doubled now! We are staying at the Dolphin in Oct and will go to Capt Grill for breakfast one morning. Fresh too, we had breakfast there once and it was very good.

I remember the reservation issues with BOG so glad you all had no problems. I can't wait to see Kathy's photos of the interior!

Your meals...OMG they look sooo good. I have got to stop reading your TR when I am hungry. I am practically drooling on my keyboard here!

I'm so glad you posted a photo of the meat pate appetizer - I was trying to picture it and in my mind it was nothing s appealing as that photo!

Too bad that Cape May was a disappointment. I'm not a big fan of breakfast buffets, except for Akershus Banquet Hall that is. I have never been a huge eater first thing in the morning.....sadly my nights are never so interesting as to make me ravenous in the morning
I like the plain caramel apples from Germany....all that candy and chocolate turns me off. They are very pretty to look at though!

We were so lucky to not have problems with BOG, everyone else was having major issues but we were seated just a short time after checking in. THe food was soooo good! Mark and Andy shared the meat/pate appie and they both enjoyed it very much.

I am not a fan of breakfast buffets either but Cape May has always been a great choice, especially first thing in the morning when they open. THis time it missed the mark for sure. Boma is the reigning champion for breakfast buffets and totally worth going out of my way for

Its not that the food is bad, well the fruit was terrible, its just nothing special, nothing to get up early for and certainly not worth the price they are charging. I really want to try the chocolate Mickey waffles at Crystal Palace one of these days. You will LOVE LOVE LOVE Boma and want to eat there every day, we do lol!

Nope, no fans of Mickey waffles in this house but we love people that love them I didnt like that vahlrona cake either but Todd did

Disney is great with decorating food and snack for the holidays...and they taste as great as they look!

Its time we go back to CP, never had a bad breakfast there and I like getting into the park super early too. Never tried the Castle, wonder if thats better than CP? Boma is totally worth it, the best buffet out there. If I had my choice I would eat at Kona and Boma every day of the trip

So glad you loved the gingerbread cupcake, it was the best!

You will love Kona, make sure you get the pressed pot! With the pricing going up as much as it has we prefer breakfast at the CS locations...it can be very expensive eating TS all the time. Honestly all I need is some scrambled eggs and I am happy! From now on I am going to bring our protein shakes with us and have those for breakfast instead!

I really need one of those gingerbread cupcakes, need to remember that for next Dec! Yachtsman looks absolutely fabulous. I have to agree with your Cape May review. I'm not a fan of buffets in general and I found it average at best. Fun, cute characters but not worth the price at all,
