Captain’s Grille 2015 Review 2

October 2015 Trip (Review 2)

Despite this being my second time having breakfast at Captain’s Grille on this trip, I again forgot to take a photo of the menu. :sad2: I blame it on the great company that I had both times. ;) So anyway, here is the A la Carte menu photo that I took during my breakfast at Captain’s Grille in May 2015…

And speaking of my two most recent visits to Captain’s Grille, both times I passed up the chance to try the breakfast buffet and instead ordered from their A la Carte menu. In May 2015 I enjoyed the Lemon-Ricotta Hotcakes. After that visit there were two other a la carte entrees that I wanted to try, plus after taking photos of the buffet I felt that it too was calling my name. So on my first CG breakfast of this trip I chose the Citrus-scented French Toast, which I was a bit disappointed with. It fell quite short of my favorite WDW french toast, the Maple Vanilla French Toast that is served at the Grand Floridian Cafe. But now I was torn between trying the Lobster Omelet from the A la Carte menu or heading to the buffet.

As if she could read my mind, Niki made my decision much easier by ordering the…

Lobster Omelet with Butter-poached lobster, asparagus, and chive cream, served with savory hash browns

So not only did I get to see, photograph, and hear Niki’s critique of the lobster omelet but I got to have my own omelet too… :thumbsup2

You see when our server came to the table to take our orders she explained that if we opted to go with the buffet we could also get a made-to-order omelet from the kitchen. Although lobster and asparagus were not among the choices for ingredients, there were still plenty of other meats and vegetables available…most of which I got. :laughing: So I was quite pleased with my ham, cheddar cheese, green pepper, mushrooms, etc. omelet. I was also happy with the many great choices which we found at the buffet. I took a few photos of these offerings but if you’d like to see more then check out my review from my May 2015 visit to Captain’s Grille. Here’s the LINK

Plus many other options that I didn’t photograph.

So here were my choices from the buffet…

In addition to some of the items which I photographed at the buffet, I also had a sausage link and a french toast slice. Everything was very good, but my favorite was still the made-to-order omelet. :thumbsup2

In a separate bowl I also enjoyed some of their fresh fruit, including red grapes, watermelon, pineapple, oranges, and cantaloupe…

Oh, and FYI, both my husband and Niki’s also chose the buffet and they seemed quite content! :thumbsup2

So overall I enjoyed the breakfast buffet at Captain’s Grille and look forward to returning whenever I’m staying in the Epcot Resort area. The cost for the buffet was $21.99 (before the TIW 20% discount), which I thought was a good value in terms of Disney food prices. The tailored omelet accompanied by hash browns and a biscuit from the A la Carte menu would have been $11.49 so for a little more $10 you also get your choice of many fresh fruits, pastries, breakfast meats, etc., etc. Oh, and don’t forget the MICKEY WAFFLES!! That’s a pretty good deal in my (pocket) book. ;)
