Granted the cafe had only been open for 2 days….the line was REALLY long.

So long, that my boys were at each others’ throats :)

Here is the outdoor seating area.  There are dozens and dozens of tables and chairs all outside under white and yellow umbrellas.  Even with the long line, we were able to find a table with no problem.

Loved the stained glass penguin on the outside window right before heading into the cafe.  How cute is he?

 

We finally made it inside!  The line kept wrapping. Lol!  It probably seemed longer because I was so hungry!

 Loved this charming Marry Poppins Song Lyrics painting inside the Cafe.  So cute!

My eyes went straight to the bakery display.  Cookies, cakes, brownies, bars, pastries, tarts.  You name it, they had it.

 

A look at some of the salads, sandwiches and more goodies on top.

My youngest ordered the mac and cheese from the kids menu.  He said it was good, but was still hungry afterwards.  The portion is more suitable for 3-4 year olds in my opinion.

 

My oldest ordered the grilled cheese and tomato basil soup.  He ate it right up however, here were my thoughts.  The grilled cheese was not hot and the cheese was not melted.  So…..don’t expect that if you order this one.  I thought the soup had great flavor and was a touch creamy which I thought was great.

 

The Caprese Sandwich that my husband and I shared was my favorite thing we ordered.  The bread was a soft focaccia and the entire sandwich was full of flavor.  Not dry at all.  I will order this again for sure.

 

I saw dozens of people ordering this Angus Roast Beef Sandwich so my husband and I shared this as well.  I have to say it looks really good in the photo, but I found it just ok.  There is a strong horseradish sauce, so be aware if you are not a horseradish fan.  The pickled onions were a bit overwhelming too.

 

You know we ordered dessert!  The giant Chocolate Chip Cookie looked really good.  For a theme park cookie it was indeed really good.  Soft, chewy with a good ratio of chocolate chips.

 

How gorgeous is this Chocolate Mint Cupcake?!  Now, when I ordered it I did not know it was chocolate mint, but what a nice surprise it was.  The cake was perfectly soft and moist and the frosting was crazy thick.  It was really good frosting, but really hard to cut with a fork.  Think ganache.  Loved it, just make sure you share it.  My family of 4 couldn’t even finish it.

 

The Micky Mouse Tart was surprisingly our favorite dessert.  It has a buttery shortbread crust and soft custard like chocolate/caramel tasting filling.  The Micky Face is crunch white chocolate.  It’s a must order if you ask us.

 

As I was taking my final photos of the outside of the Cafe, Josh Holloway (aka) Sawyer from “Lost” walked right past me with his crew.  I was in shock, but managed to snap this photo of him as he walked away.  My husband and I just finished the entire show last year and I just loved it.  What a treat to see him cruising Disney.

Here you have it friends.  The new Jolly Holiday Bakery Cafe.  You will like this one.  Enjoy!

    Reminds me of the Main Street Bakery at Magic Kingdom in WDW– is it like that? And how cool that you got to see Josh Holloway!! But to the food– the grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup sounded the best to me; too bad that the cheese wasn’t melted. The cupcake looks delicious!

    That cupcake looks so yummy! Wonder if many people recognized the Lost guy. Sometimes people like that just get “lost” in the crowd. (har har)

    As a Disneyworld maniac, your Disney posts are simply enthralling!! I love all the details of the menu and just seeing your photo of the big menu sign sends my heart aflutter! Our last trip to Floriday (I live in PA) was last January. You are so lucky to live so close to Disneyland. Keep those wonderful posts & pics coming!!!

    I think D-Land should have YOU develop some sweet recipes for them :) We will be heading down there in a couple of months for my daughter’s second birthday. Can’t wait!

    Hooooly Crap. I think I would have peed my pants if I saw Josh Holloway that close to me. I had an unhealthy obsession with that show when it was on. Ack!! And Swoon.

    I freakin love caprese sandwiches. Sooo good. Now I need to get my butt to Disneyland… for sandwiches. And Josh Holloway. And…. Disney…. things.

    ;)

    Thanks for the review! We’ll definitely stop by there when we visit Disneyland this month. My little one will be turning 3, I think Mickey Tart is perfect! But, I spied a Pecan Bar in your photo… maybe we’ll be ordering a few items.. ;)

    • 14.1
      Jenny says:

      Yes! The pecan bar looked really good. It was so hard narrowing my desserts to just 3! Lol! Let me know how the pecan bar is when you go :)

    I have a soft spot in my heart for caprese sandwiches so I am so excited to try it and also glad to hear that you liked it best of the stuff you tried. I am swooning over the tart! I will be eating there next week no matter how long the line is. My sister and BIL are going there tomorrow with their daughter so I fevershing emailed her this link so she could drool and prepare her lunch order ahead of time. :) Thanks as always Jenny for another great Disneyland review! If it wasn’t for you I would not have fallen head over heels for the fried green tomato sandwich.

    Is this where the Plaza Inn was? It looks like the same place. We’re thinking about getting passes for the first time. Which package do you have? I’m trying to figure out which one is the best for the price… THanks!!!

    Oh snap, we were just up there and I did not even notice this new place. My husband and I are going up to Club 33 for dinner on the 23rd (10th anniversary!!); I will definitely poke my nose in here. I adore Mary Poppins! :-)

    I just stumbled upon your blog and what a lovely place. I will be back.

    I really love food safari! I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I come across a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that not enough folks are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I came across this during my search for something relating to this.
