A wise parks and recreation employee once said,
“Why would anybody ever eat anything besides breakfast food?”
She couldn’t be more right.
Breakfast has always had a reputation as the most
important meal of the day, and I would say even more so when on vacation. It
gets you energized for all of the fun activities you’re going to do, while also
giving you the opportunity to indulge in delicious food.
Whether you’re staying at one of Universal Orlando’s hotels or looking to come to Universal CityWalk or the parks early, there are plenty of great breakfast spots throughout Universal Orlando Resort. Here’s our guide to help you plan your morning meal for you and your family.
Start your day the right way with a hot cup of
coffee and fresh pastries from TODAY Cafe. Or choose a heartier option like a
breakfast sandwich or an acai bowl. Also offering lunch options, TODAY Cafe is
the perfect spot for brunch if you want to work up your appetite by hitting a
few rides first.
Before you set out to explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, enjoy a hot breakfast from the Leaky Cauldron. Indulge in authentic British fare like the Traditional Breakfast or an Egg, Leek & Mushroom Pasty. I recommend this as the go-to spot for guests with Early Park Admission.

One of my favorite places to have breakfast is in the Three Broomsticks in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. I love being able to enjoy a plate of pancakes and Pumpkin Juice with a view of Hogwarts first thing in the morning. It feels surreal.

you’re on vacation, right? Make Sam I Am proud by grabbing a plate of Green
Eggs & Ham Tots.
