In just a few days we'll be relaxing at the BoardWalk Villas. I'm looking forward to exploring the newly expanded and remodeled BoardWalk Bakery. Can you tell I'm excited? The BoardWalk Bakery is my favorite bakery on property. I've written about it often, most recently here in an article for The Magical Blogorail. Peter is anxious to do the morning "bun run", a family tradition when we stay at The BoardWalk Villas.
“The new location is twice the size of the original bakery, themed to the 1920s Jersey shore,” says John Berko, manager of food & beverage at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn and Villas. Dark wood and colorful tiles and mosaics add a new brightness to the space.Menu items include hot breakfast items, salads and sandwiches galore. One of the new items on the menu is Peanut Butter-Banana-Applewood Smoked Candied Bacon Pie. This sounds delicious, combing sweet and salty goodness in a pie.
The bakery is open daily from 6:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., and is Disney Dining Plan eligible.
