The other weekend we stayed at Disney’s Contemporary Resort and decided to give The Wave another try for breakfast. The Wave is located on the ground level of the Contemporary Resort tucked back past the resort check in desks. We showed up Sunday morning without a dining reservation and waited about 25 minutes, despite the restaurant being half empty.
When we went over the menu we saw a few options with the plant based logo. When I ate here previously we had a tofu scramble and some vegan waffles, so seeing actual on menu options was exciting. We opted for the Garden “Egg” Sandwich and Avocado Toast. There was also a fruit plate and oatmeal. We spoke with the server for a bit to get an option figured out for Finn and got him tofu scramble with potatoes and toast.
I joked about how dumb it was to order $12 avocado toast, but then I bit into it and loved it. I am a millennial, so whatever, I’ll own my love of avocado toast. The avocado toast was smashed avocado on small bread slices with a sweet onion jam, radish, pumpkin seeds, and watercress on it. While I wouldn’t consider this an actual meal, it was very good. If you want a smaller entree this is definitely the way to go.
The Garden “Egg” Sandwich was great. The size of the sandwich was oddly small and tall (aka awkward to eat) but was very good. Inside the bread was a mung bean egg patty (Just Egg), Field Roast sausage, avocado, and more of that onion jam. It was an interesting mix of flavors and it all worked well together. The sandwich also came with a side of potatoes.
Finn’s breakfast was pretty simple. When we ordered we had the option of the vegan egg or the tofu scramble. Our server asked about what veggies we wanted in the scramble but we knew he would just pick off the tofu so we said just plain. We were also given vegan butter with his toast. He enjoyed it and it was nice to have an actual option for him that wasn’t just a vegan waffle.
We were happy with our meal here and would absolutely go back for the same options. Both options tasted great and we stayed full all morning long.
Review from November 2019.
I was at The Wave for breakfast. They did not have Just Egg or Beyond Sausage. The chef came to my table and discussed options as he wasn’t able to make the Garden Egg sandwich.
Has it been removed from the menu currently? I know many places have limited options right now.
