    Looking for the best counter service breakfast.

    I am looking for taste, price and variety.

    My favorite thing to get for breakfast is the Nutella waffle at Sleepy Hollow in the Magic Kingdom. You'll have to pay out of pocket because it's not covered by any dining plans, but it's only around $6.50 (I think, it could be more though).

    Another place that gets mentioned a lot is the Starring Rolls Cafe in Hollywood Studios. They have some baked goods like muffins, cinnamon rolls, etc.

    Are we talking a full breakfast or just a pastry/breakfast sandwich and a coffee? You can pick up a pastry or breakfast sandwich at Starbucks or one of the bakeries in the parks or at any resort cs place.

    Aside from Sunshine Seasons in Epcot, all the cs full breakfasts will be at the resorts. And I can't see travelling to a different resort just for that. What resort are you staying at?

    I am looking for variety of a full breakfast. I love breakfast! But some in our family just want bagel and cream cheese, breakfast sandwich or breakfast pizza. I am not sure I have seen breakfast pizzas?!?

    SUPER breakfast pizza at Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD. they also have wonderful omlettes, and a cornflake encrusted French Toast.

    Capn Cooks at the Poly is great, and we love Pizzafari in AK

    We are staying at the Dolphin. My daughter is celebrating her 21st birthday and likes breakfast too and wants something with bacon or sausage etc. I did not want to do a buffet-too expensive, especially since most of the family would rather do a lunch or supper for the expensive meal. So, with that said I would entertain the idea of a nice breakfast in the park or somewhere else. BUT the criteria is the best breakfast with variety for a inexpensive amount, unless it is a big breakfast that can be split.

    So far I have found from looking up menu's on ALLEars.com

    Kouzzina by Cat Cora BoardWalk Resort - All Ears gives it a 9.0 from reader reviews.

    Captain's Grille Yacht Club - 8.2 rating

    Then with less for your money and good variety but less of a rating:

    Beachclub Marketplace 6.4
    Picabu at Dolphin 6.1

    There was....but I nixed them:

    Belle Vue Lounge
    Boardwalk Bakery - actually I put questionable
    Fresh Mediterranean Market at Dolphin
    Garden Grove Breakfast at Swan


    In Magic Kingdom there is:

    Main Street Bakery - looks the best
    Tomorrow Land Terrace
    Casey's Corner

    Does anyone have any reviews on any of these?

    I have not had time to research the other parks counter services or resorts. If you have a review, please share! :)

    I have only seen breakfast pizza at buffets.

    Park QS places have very limited breakfast menus. Here's the menu at Sunshine Seasons which is probably one of the bigger (if not the biggest) breakfast menu at a QS place in any of the parks:

    Adult Breakfast platter - Bacon, Eggs, sausage, potatoes and a biscuit $8.29

    Breakfast Panini - Eggs, bacon, roast pork, and cheese served with breakfast potatoes $6.99

    Oatmeal - add raisins or brown sugar no extra charge $2.79

    Bacon, Egg, and Cheese Croissant $5.99

    Bagel with Cream Cheese $2.79 Disney Dining Plan Snack Item

    Croissant Berry Pudding $2.79 Disney Dining Plan Snack Item

    For Children 9 and under: French toast - with sausage and served with choice of small lowfat milk, small chocolate milk, small juice box, small water, small whole milk, small soy milk, or soft drink. $4.99​
    http://allears.net/dining/menu/sunshine-seasons/all-day

    We usually get a platter and share it, but to be honest, it's not very good. It's a serviceable breakfast, but kind of bland and nothing to write home about.

    If you want a GOOD breakfast, I personally would not count on QS places in the parks for that, but if you want something to tide you over till lunch, you can find food ....

    Others can point you toward QS places in the resorts. I've tried the breakfast at Beach Club, Wilderness Lodge and AKL, and again ... it was nothing special. I think the value resorts have more extensive breakfast menus at their QS places.

    I do hear good things about Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD, but we're never at DTD in the mornings (prime park time) so I'm not sure I'll ever find out.

    As PP said, WPE in DTD has breakfast pizza for a QS meal. Chef Mickey's also has breakfast pizza, but of course that's TS.

    Sorry, my daughter just changed her mind...she wants waffles with bacon or sausage. So, I am looking for where the best waffles are...BUT it can not be at a buffet or character meal where the prices are too high for what I am looking for for breakfast. We have done a few breakfast buffets like Cape May and Cinderellas Castle, but not this trip.

    Oh she is saying Belgium with strawberries and REAL cream and whipped butter.

    Kouzzina and Captain's Grill are table service. Garden Grill is a buffet, I believe.

    Main Street Bakery is Starbucks. If your family like Starbucks for breakfast (we do), then that may be a good pick for you.

    People like Boardwalk Bakery, but I had a bad experience there. I think it's mostly just pastries anyway.

    Yes, I am sorry I did know that, but the food looked good and it had variety with a variety of prices. Also they came with 9 and 8.2 reviews where as the counter service at Beachclub and Dolphin had alright variety, but good prices and alright reader reviews.

    I'm not sure when your trip is planned for but Kouzzina is closing September 30th so if you will be there after Oct 1 or later, you wouldn't want to plan on Kouzzina.:sad2:

    The best counter service breakfast IMHO is Wolfgang Puck Express in DTD.

    Another vote for Wolfgang Pucks. The breakfast pizza is delicious and DH loves the breakfast pocket.
    I have also had the waffles which were good.
