During a recent stay at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn we opted to try breakfast at the resorts main table service restaurant, Trattoria al Forno. It has been quite a few years since I have eaten here but I was ready to try again; I believe I was given dairy here last time we ate dinner several years ago so I have been hesitant to return.
This restaurant features both indoor and outdoor dining, though there are only a few outdoor tables, and is open for breakfast and dinner. Pre-COVID they offered a character breakfast with Rapunzel, Flynn, Ariel, and Eric. Currently there is no timeline for when they plan to bring them back.
During breakfast there are a few vegan options and one main entree. The vegan options include Mickey Waffles, Steel Cut Oatmeal, Breakfast Potatoes, and the entree is an Avocado Toast. We ordered everything except the oatmeal. We also started our meal with the press pot coffee.
The Trattoria al Forno Press Pot Coffee Roasted by Joffrey’s Coffee may be my new favorite press pot offered at Walt Disney World. Kona Cafe has a great press pot, but this one is even better. If you’re a coffee drinker I definitely recommend you try it. We also asked for non-dairy milk for our coffee.
The Avocado Toast ended up being way more intense than I imagined it would be. The toast itself is a ciabatta and you get two halves of it. The there are slices of avocado, a chickpea “scramble”, tomato slices, arugula, radishes, and a balsamic vinaigrette.
The chickpea scramble was kind of weird. I was expecting it to be more like the chickpea based omelet over at Fresh Mediterranean Market, or maybe I am just used to JUST egg everywhere now. It was basically a very mushy blend of chickpeas and not much going on other than that for flavor and texture. On it’s own I didn’t enjoy it, but with the other toppings on the toast it was good. It also had what I believe were sun dried tomatoes in it.
The toast was really hard to eat with all the stuff on it. I wasn’t sure if it was a knife and fork situation or a handheld prayer. The ciabatta was so good though and was at the perfect toasted level. I did end up needing to add salt though, and I’m not usually a big salt person, but I need it with avocado. This was something I would definitely enjoy again if someone wanted to go here.
We got a side of the Breakfast Potatoes as I wasn’t sure how filling the toast would be. First of all, this side of potatoes was huge. The potatoes were well seasoned and were mostly cooked well, I did encounter a few tougher bites. We got two for the two of us, but I think one side is more than enough to share.
We also had to see what the Mickey Waffle situation was like here. To our surprise, it is listed as plant-based on the menu and is not an “allergy” waffle. The waffle itself was pretty good, not overly cake-like or mushy. It was an enjoyable waffle. I imagine this is basically the kids option.
Overall we enjoyed our breakfast here. I do like that they are trying to be more creative with the Avocado Toast and adding more toppings on it and making a chickpea scramble. I think it’s a nice lighter fresher style meal to start your day at the parks. I will absolutely be going back to get that coffee though, maybe I’ll check it out when the characters return!
