Boma Breakfast Buffet

Today was another big day for me foodwise with ADRs scheduled for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It began with an early breakfast right there at Animal Kingdom Lodge’s…

I arrived on time for my 7:30 a.m. ADR, which is the time that they open the restaurant. They had not yet begun seating but the servers were lined up on each side of the aisle awaiting their guests…

[IMG]

Since it is a buffet, this sign by the restaurant entrance is the closest thing they have to a menu…

[IMG]

Soon they called my name and I was one of the first guests seated at a two-top table close to the buffet. My server took my drink order, which for me was both coffee and Jungle juice (or is it called Frunch here??). Anyway, it was a combination of orange, guava, and passion fruit juices and was very good.

I then made my way to the buffet line to quickly take photos before it got too busy.

Next was the Carving Station…

[IMG]

I didn’t have any but I believe this was Ham…

[IMG]

Somewhere in this general area they also had Grilled Tomatoes…

[IMG]

Then on to the next area, which began with these two breakfast meats…

[IMG]

Sausage Links and Bacon

Don’t these sausages look great?

[IMG]

In reading my notes from this meal I said that I didn’t like either the sausage or bacon here. I didn’t say why though so unfortunately that will remain a mystery.

Breakfast Potatoes

Next were two kinds of Scrambled Eggs, the regular kind…

[IMG]

…and the Deluxe kind with goat cheese and chives.

[IMG]

And if you prefer your eggs in the form of an omelet, they also have a Made to Order Omelet station with many options…

[IMG]

Top Row: Jalapenos, Swiss, Cheddar, Ham, Bacon, and Sausage
Bottom Row: Spinach, Mushroom, Tomato, Onion, and both Red and Green Peppers

There were then two kinds of Pancakes, the regular kind…

[IMG]

…and M&M Pancakes.

[IMG]

And continuing the pattern of two, they had two different Waffle shapes…

Simba and Mickey Mouse Waffles

Next on to some of the items from the cold section of the buffet…

[IMG]

Strawberry Banana Yogurt and toppings…

[IMG]

[IMG]

The Cereals…

[IMG]

Corn Flakes, Rice Krispies, and Fruit Loops

The Fruit section which included Strawberries, Grapes, Pineapple, Cantaloupe, and Honey Dew Melon plus Apple Sauce…

[IMG]

[IMG]

Then was a Salad section with three different salads plus Hard-boiled Eggs.

[IMG]

The green salad in the back right was Spinach and Quinoa. Not sure about the front left but the front right is African Fruit Fool…

[IMG]

Which is a combination of pineapple, apples, mango, papaya, grapes, bananas, and sweetened shredded coconut, with whipped cream and condensed milk topping.

Then there was an impressive pastry station with two kinds of bagels, plain and sesame seed…

[IMG]

[IMG]

Along with Strawberry Preserves Orange Marmalade, and Grape Jam…

[IMG]

And African Chocolate and Hazelnut Spread…

[IMG]

There were also croissants and many sweet pastries…

[IMG]

…like Pecan Rolls.

[IMG]

And Cinnamon Rolls…

[IMG]

And Scones…

[IMG]

And Banana Bread…

[IMG]

And whatever these are…

[IMG]

Are you a fan of Krispy Kreme Glazed Donuts? If so, you can find them here. They actually have two kinds, the regular…

[IMG]

…and chocolate covered.

[IMG]

And then last, the pattern of two was finally broken when they had three different kinds of mini muffins…

[IMG]

Banana Macadamia Nut

[IMG]

Chocolate Chip

[IMG]

Blueberry

Now for my choices…

[IMG]

As I said before, I apparently did not like either the bacon or sausage that I had on my plate. I was also a little disappointed with the potatoes and scrambled eggs with goat cheese ad chives. I did however really like the Turkey Bobotie. The omelet (on separate plate) which included at least five of their many choices was also good, as were the pineapple and grapes.

And last but certainly not least is my plate of sweets…

[IMG]

While all three were good, my favorite was the French Toast Bread Pudding with Pecan Praline Sauce. Delicious!

I really enjoyed my meal at Boma. If I stay at AKL again I will definitely return here for breakfast. However, if not staying there and dependent on Disney transportation, I’m not sure that it’s worth the hassle it would take to get there. It was good enough to strongly consider it though.
