Grand Floridian Cafe Restaurant Review

: The Grand Floridian Café is tucked away on the first floor of the beautiful Grand Floridian Resort & Spa, and if you want to escape the ubiquitous Disney characters at the adjacent 1900 Park Fare restaurant, this is a good spot for a meal that's away from the hustle and bustle. Friendly servers whisk you to a table in the airy, light-filled dining room, where the menu is all-American with something for everyone. The breakfast menu includes lobster eggs Benedict, citrus pancakes and maple-vanilla french toast; for lunch, we like the Grand sandwich, a sort-of open-face club with creamy Boursin cheese. The dinner menu is more ambitious, with creations like shrimp and penne with prosciutto and Asiago cream sauce; grilled rib-eye with red wine sauce; and a grilled pork chop with roasted corn and mustard demi-glaze. Even the burger is fancy, with lobster, asparagus and horseradish-chive hollandaise. The Grand's pastry chef provides desserts, from tiramisu to Florida Key lime pie with a chocolate crust, absolutely the best part of the meal.
