Kouzzina by Cat Cora - Breakfast

By: Nick Maglio, co-writer of the Disney Musings Blog

My wife never wanted to eat at Kouzzina by Cat Cora. She loved the restaurant that used to be at this prime location at Disney's Boardwalk Resort, Spoodles.

But on the last day of our trip this past January, we decided not to visit a park before Magical Express was to return us to the airport, and back to reality. We were hungry. As we were staying at the Boardwalk, I was able to convince my wife to at least look at the menu. She saw a couple of entrees she found intriguing, and we headed inside.
We were told it would be a 20 minute wait, but the pagers were not working.

So we waited. And waited. And...
35 minutes later, we were finally called. Not a great start.

Our server was friendly, but not very attentive, in fact she was pretty slow.
Strike 2.
But the food saved this from being a complete strike out.
I ordered the Country French Toast : Grilled Fig and Anise Bread with Apple Fig Compote with choice of bacon or chicken sausage. - $11.99

My wife ordered the Classic Golden Waffle : with whipped Mascarpone Cheese, Honey and Chopped Pecans with a choice of bacon or chicken sausage.-$10.49

We each chose bacon, but, because I wanted to try the sausage, we ordered a side of bacon and sausage. We also split the waffle and french toast.
The bacon was good, the sausage delicious. I really liked my french toast, but the waffle was terrific!
And the coffee. I love coffee, and I really loved the coffee here.
As mentioned above, service was slow. And if we were in a rush, we wouldn't have been as forgiving.
The table next to us, in fact, complained through most of their meal about the lack of attention to their ever empty glasses of juice.
Will we return? My wife feels it was good, but with so many other great choices at Walt Disney World, it wouldn't be at the top of her list. We agreed, if in similar circumstances, we would have breakfast here again. And if friends wanted to go for lunch or dinner, we would accompany them.
