Oscar runs this and has been working fo rdisney for 50 years, the breakfast is great, however I just ate there Jan 28th

I always go here to eat when vising disneyland and I love the breakfast, dinner last week was not that tasty, get reservations, kids meals are larger sized just like the adult sizes.

I can't say enough good things about this restaurant on Main Street in Disneyland Park. Breakfast is reservation only, and I managed to get a reservation less than 24 hours in advance. Lucky! Upon arriving, I was given a buzzer, and barely waited any time at all before my table was ready. Because I am celiac, I was given a... More

Even with reservations we had to wait about 15-20 minutes for a table. The food was reasonably priced and the server was friendly. The menu was very limited. They brought a free birthday cupcake out which was very nice.

Great spot for people watching. Bit expensive but it is Disney! Didn't try the fried pickles but regretting it now! Had a milk shake and it was great. You need to book online before you go but they do often take walk ins if you want to wait.

This is one of our family's go-tos at Disneyland. The food is always good, especially the Baked Potato soup. Great for kids, and much quieter than any of the quick service restaurants.

Not bad if you want to take a relaxing break on Main St. Remember this is a full-service cafe so it does take a little time for the food to come out (taking away some of your time in the park). The breakfast is good, and the juice is fresh. The staff are friendly, and the prices are decent for... More

Had a good experience here. Even after dumping a glass of water all over myself. My 11 year old and I had lunch here one day. Was quick to get in and out. I had meatloaf - very good!!! My daughter had something off the kids meal that she liked too (can't remember now what it was but I remember... More

Their most popular item on the dinner menu is the fried chicken that comes with vegetables, a dinner roll, and mashed potatoes--that's pretty good. but only okay in price. I believe it's about $16 for the dish. In comparison though, I feel the fried chicken at Plaza Inn, also on Main Street, serves better fried chicken. The other item my... More

We picked Carnation Cafe because everyone seems to say it's a Disneyland staple. I didn't think about the timing when I booked it, but our reservation was right after the first showing of Paint the Night. In light of the crowds, not to mention the Christmas to New Year's crowds going on at that time, we weren't allowed to check... More
