Beaches & Cream

 

Beaches & Cream – May 2012 (Still looks exactly the same)

We had taken advantage of Extra Magic Hours at Hollywood Studios the night before so had gotten to bed late. So I decided that this morning could be another sleep-in morning for the girls. I got them up and going just in time to get to B & C at opening time, 11:00 a.m. This, however, was not nearly late enough to be considered sleeping-in, according to my daughters. ;)

Anyway, we were one of the first groups there and were seated in one of the few booths that they have along the wall. Which was new for us, as we had never gotten to sit in one of their booths before.

We first chose our drinks from among these options:

 

 

 

Sodas flavored with syrup, which made them more Heavenly (just like the menu says)

Allison and I each had a Coke with Vanilla syrup added. Emily had a Sprite with the more unusual flavor of Raspberry syrup added. All were “Very Good”.

Then we all ordered from the “Hot Off the Grill” section of the menu:

 

Emily and I shared this…

 

Burger Heaven – A juicy Angus Beef Patty topped with Cheese, Lettuce, Tomato and Bacon added (for an extra $.99) served on a Fresh-baked Bun (baked fresh daily at the Yacht & Beach Club Resorts Bakery).
We had a choice of Fresh Fruit or French Fries for the side, and we chose French Fries.
This was already split in half for us and brought to our table on two plates.

After a week of “fancy” food , this cheeseburger and fries really hit the spot and we both gave this a rating of “Very Good”.

Allison doesn’t like hamburgers, so she went a different route with this…

 

Grilled Cheese Sandwich and Tomato Bisque
Six-Cheese blend on Fresh-baked Sourdough Bread
She chose the Fresh Fruit for her side.

Now we specifically asked our server what the six cheeses were and I noted it somewhere, but for the life of me I can not find that note. I can tell you, however, that Allison loved this and gave it a “Very Good” rating. Since that time, she has been experimenting with different cheese combinations in the Grilled Cheese sandwiches she makes at home.
Allison and I also shared an order of these…

 

Onion Rings

I thought these were great and gave them a rating of “Very Good”. Allison thought they were a little too greasy and gave them only an “Okay”. So the onion rings receive the average of our two ratings, which is “Good”.

And now it’s time for dessert, so let’s take a look at the menu…

 

And we chose this…

 

“The Famous” Kitchen Sink – Scoops of Vanilla, Chocolate, Strawberry, Coffee, and Mint Chocolate Chip smothered in Marshmallow, Strawberry, Pineapple, Peanut Butter, Hot Fudge, Caramel, Chocolate Syrup, Whipped Cream, Toasted Almonds, and Cherries.
Serves Four – $25.99

Actually, I’m just pulling your leg. This was on its way to the table behind us (that’s why the picture is so blurry, since I had to take a quick shot of it) and I’m happy to report that the five of them managed to eat it all.

Allison and I decided to share a dessert. While our choice was a wee bit smaller than the Kitchen Sink, it was still equally delicious.

 

No Way Jose (smaller version with only 2 scoops of ice cream)
Peanut Butter and Hot Fudge delight featuring Chocolate and Vanilla Ice Cream, Peanut Butter and Chocolate Morsels, Whipped Cream, & a Cherry. (We were charged the price of a Regular Two Scoop Sundae for this – $5.99)

I had never had this before, but had seen (and coveted) this delicious-looking ice cream treat in many of your pictures. Well, I’m happy to say that the No Way Jose does in fact taste as good as it has looked in all the pictures. I don’t know who Jose is, but if I ever do meet him, I would definitely not tell him “No”. :lmao: So anyway, you can count Allison and I among the members of the “No Way Jose” Fan Club, as we both gave this a rating of “Very Good”.

Emily ordered a Single Scoop Ice Cream Cone, which she was expecting to be served in just a cone but instead was served this way…

 

Single Scoop Chocolate Ice Cream Cone served upside-down in a small bowl

 

Although she didn’t like the fact that it was served this way, she still said it tasted “Very Good”.

And so overall our rating for this meal was: A Nearly Unanimous “Very Good” (with the only exception being the Onion Rings)
