At Walt Disney World, you have hundreds of choices to stop for a quick bite to eat. But sometimes, you want a departure from the usual fare of burgers and nuggets. For that, head to Epcot, which has delicious array of unique spots where you can dine well – and fast – without breaking the bank.
Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
Make your way to the France pavilion in World Showcase for an amazing meal or quick snack at this classic-style French bakery and deli. Enjoy tasty sandwiches on freshly baked baguettes, as well as salads and delectable pastries that are unlike anything else in the park. Sandwich options include the jambon beurre with ham and cheese on a demi baguette and the Brie aux pommes made with brie and apples on multi grain bread. You can also order Parisian treats like créme brûlée and macarons for the perfect end to your meal. Les Halles is also open for breakfast everyday. In fact, it's one of the only World Showcase restaurants to open at 9am, when most don't open until 11am.
Inside The Land pavilion in Future World, Sunshine Seasons is the perfect place to eat when everyone in your party wants something different. The serving stations are split into four different sections, each with their own specialty. The areas include a Sandwich Shop with spicy fish tacos and made-to-order sandwiches. The Asian Noodle Shop has dishes like Mongolian beef and shrimp stir-fry. The Grill Shop offers pork loin, rotisserie chicken and grilled salmon. And there's a soup and salad station for those looking for a healthier option. Plus, you can get freshly baked desserts like carrot cake. In the morning they offer breakfast platters and the guest favorite – breakfast panini.
Tangierine Cafe in the Morocco pavilion of World Showcase serves delicious Mediterranean cuisine, including chicken and lamb shawarma platters, falafel wraps and a kefta sandwich, which is a Mediterranean-style meatball sandwich. All meals come with some of the tastiest side dishes in Walt Disney World, including hummus, tabouleh, tangierine couscous salad and marinated olives. Chicken tenders and hamburgers are available for the kids (and picky eaters.) Enjoy your meal inside or at a table in the open-air market of Morocco. Don't forget to order baklava for dessert!
Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe
This small unassuming bakery at the Norway pavilion in World Showcase packs a punch with some of the most flavorful dishes in Epcot. While mostly known for its sweet offerings, like School Bread, Troll Horns and lefse, Kringla Bakeri also has traditional Norwegian sandwiches good enough to satisfy a Viking's hunger. You can't go wrong with the Norwegian club sandwich filled with ham, turkey and bacon, but the ham and apple sandwich is a tasty treat you'll want to try at least once. It has ham, apple and Jarlsberg cheese with a sweet apple chutney served on toasted multigrain bread. For something hot try the traditional kjøttkake, a special serving of Norwegian-style meatballs.
Yorkshire County Fish Shop
The Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a quick service window in the United Kingdom pavilion of World Showcase. While it doesn't offer a wide selection of items, you won’t find fish and chips this good without crossing the pond. Your meal comes with several strips of battered fish along with a handful of piping-hot chips (otherwise known as fries). Wash your meal down with one of several draught beers, including Bass and Harp Lager, available in an optional souvenir stein. For dessert, there's the Victoria sponge cake filled with jam and buttercream. After you pick up your food, head to the back to enjoy your meal with beautiful views overlooking World Showcase lagoon.
