Why Breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace is a MUST!
At this point, it’s fairly obvious that I’m just here for the food! Here is my review of Breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace, the absolute BEST breakfast at Walt Disney World. Amazing restaurant? CHECK. GREAT food? CHECK. Adorable character interactions? CHECK! Take a closer look!
Topolino’s Terrace is located on the top floor of the brand new Disney’s Riviera Resort. And for an added bonus, the Riviera is a Skyliner hotel, so it’s that much easier to get there! Be sure to take the time to walk around and look at the details. DON’T MISS THE VIEW FROM THE TERRACE! It’s incredible!
Theming and Setting
Topolino’s Terrace is inspired by “cliffside restaurants of the Riviera,” and the cuisine features regional favorites. The name Topolino means Mickey Mouse in Italian. There’s your fun fact for the day! Breakfast at Topolino’s is a prix fixe character meal, while dinner (which I will not talk about in THIS post) is a much more expensive Signature Dining event!
The Menu and Pricing
Breads and Pastries
The amazing starts at the very beginning, with this incredible breads and pastries basket. Including an allergy-friendly pastry option!
Then it’s on to the main course!!
- Mickey Waffle Dippers – Mickey and Minnie waffles in an artist’s palette, with various dipping syrups. This is part of the Kid’s Menu, but they WILL, in fact, make it adult-sized if you want it (or have a picky tween or teen!)!
- Quiche Gruyere – Mini-quiche with house-made pancetta, gruyere, roasted potatoes, and field greens with lemon vinaigrette
- Smoked Salmon – Everything bagel, smoked salmon, tomato, red onion, cream cheese, and capers. This was a MASSIVE plate!
- Gluten-Free Wood-Fired Butchers Steak – Polenta, Pomodoraccio Tomatoes, Roasted Onions, Wild Mushroom Conserva, Watercress, topped with a cooked-to-order steak. The polenta is the most INCREDIBLE polenta I have ever had.
Beverages, Mocktails, and Cocktails
As it is the Flavors of the Riviera, including my Italian homeland, the coffee selection is chef’s kiss! Press Pot Riviera Resort Blend (from Joffrey’s), Macchiato, Cafe Mocha, Double Espresso, Cafe Latte, and Capuccino.
Additionally, soft drinks, juice, water, and tea are available, as well as Mocktails, like Riviera Spicy Bloody Mary (n/a), and cocktails, including classic mimosa, classic bellini, and Riviera Bloody Mary.
As breakfast at Topolino’s Terrace is prix fixe, the meal is $42 for adults and $27 for children 3-9, regardless of how much or how little you choose to eat. You get the bread course and an entree.
You will get Mickey, Minnie, Donald, and Daisy, all dolled up in their artists’ best! In fact, meet Painter Mickey, Poet Minnie, Sculptor Donald, and Ballerina Daisy. They are just as adorable as you think they’re going to be. A top-notch character interaction. And with the characters out of the way during breakfast, you can now enjoy your day without character lines in the parks! (Theoretically, of course.)
I consider this the best breakfast on property. Great price, great food with good portions, beautiful setting, and amazing characters. This is solidly in our must-do list of reservations now, and we try to go at least once every trip! Have you eaten here yet?!
