Ok so Friday was supposed to be breakfast at Crystal Palace. But you guessed it, we cancelled (in plenty of time to avoid the $10 per person charge!)

We were still off to the MK in the morning and stopped for a quick breakfast at Sleepy Hollow. We shared the nutella and fresh fruit waffle ...



Andrew also had an iced coffee float -



I can't comment on the float but the waffle ... OMG. Just heavenly. The melty nutella, the sweetness from the fruit. It is truly a perfect breakfast.

Bonus pics - we spent a lot of time this trip playing with the settings on the camera ... Disney in Black & White if you will ...

Ditto what Linda said. I should have not have read this post in the morning...I'm going to be hate-glaring at my own breakfast now. That waffle is the BEST!

Love the B&W pics, too! Very cool.

I'm already missing my summer strawberries. The waffle looks so yummy & a healthier sweet treat! I think we better try those this time. I love the peter pan's flight pic w/ the pop of green, great shot!

Go with the craving!!! I actually would pick VN over Narcoosees. I love the pizza at VN as well. We didn't fit in VN this trip but definitely looking forward to December. At least you know that they make their zeppoles fresh seeing as how the ricotta cheese decided to come back.

I love those nutella and fruit waffles. Another thing on my list that I planned to have last trip and failed.

Ohhh I love your B&W photo at PPF with the splash of color for the gator. Marvelous!

That waffle is amazing. I made waffles this week, even had nutella and didn't even think to recreate it. Not that mine would have tasted the same but I could dream ....

I had to go with the craving. It was so strong we would not have enjoyed Narcoossees. Looking forward to VN in December!

Thanks for the nice comments on the pics. I made a B&W photobook for this trp. I really like the way it came out.

Lunch was to be at a place that has been on our "never again" list. San Angel Inn. I guess it still is because we cancelled and ended up at





We both started with the soup of the day which has always been tomato when we have been there ...



We both love this soup. I had asked Disney a few years ago for the recipe and was emailed very nicely that it is one that is not given out. My guess is that could mean it is out of a box/can but I have yet to find it.

Andrew had the Grilled Chicken Sandwich - grilled chicken breast topped with shaved ham and Swiss cheese served on a flour-dusted Kaiser $12.49



He has had it before and was not disappointed. It is simple but good. At this point of the trip, we needed simple and less heavy. I went with the
Plaza Club - smoked ham, turkey, bacon, lettuce, tomato and mayonnaise layered on toasted multi-grain bread $11.49



This was really good. Light, fresh. Perfect for this point in the trip.

And once again, we left the Plaza with no dessert. We have yet to have ice cream here.



Side note, our server (who's name I cannot remember) was super good. We have had less than stellar service here. We were talking and he commented on when he was working at Narcoossees. What the heck do you have to do to get demoted from Narcoossees to lunch at The Plaza?! Seriously may just be a normal rotation but what a drop in tip income for the guy!

All in all another very solid meal at The Plaza.

Confession time...The Plaza is on my "Wish (we could somehow squeeze it in) List" for December. I haven't been there since 2006, and for the life of me I don't know why??? I had planned to go there on our last trip in March, but then the kids talked me into trying Tony's instead...and you know how that went. Anyway, your lunch review reminded me how much I wanted to eat there again. But, alas, I see no weak links in our chain of dining choices for December...I want to keep them all!

Plaza Restaurant is one of my favorites!!! We actually ate there twice last trip. Unlike you, we always make room for dessert. ha ha!

Your sandwich look pretty delish. Those fries are the best at MK or anywhere in WDW for me so I never go with the chips - it's always the fries.

Wow! I agree, what did that server do to get moved to Plaza Restaurant. Can't believe he would volunteer for that unless he likes wearing turn of the century period costumes instead of a shirt and tie?

Again, love your B&W photo. Very creative.

I agree, the fries (or chips as I call them!) at the Plaza are the best at WDW When you think about it, the Plaza doesn't cost too much more than a regular counter service place and it's so much nicer to be able to take a break in the air-con and be served at your table

Agreed. Too many places to eat & not enough days. I admit I am looking forward to LTT more than I would want to eat at The Plaza but that is probably because we made it there in August.

Right? I have thought about the server quite a bit. The fries are good and someday I will have that ice cream.

Completely agree. Well worth it to eat at The Plaza than deal with the QS options in the MK!

Several wonderful updates while I was visiting another Disney!

I LOVE Via Nappoli!! And yes, reservations are becoming harder and harder to obtain there as people realize how wonderful it is!!

That Waffle! Oh my Goodness! I plan to have that at least once, maybe twice this month! I tried recreating it here with Eggo waffles (the thick ones) as I don't have a waffle maker and it wasn't even close to the same!

The Plaza is a good solid lunch meal. Good Food, reasonable prices! Not a place I run and grab an ADR far in advance for though.

LOVE your B&W photos! They are amazing!
