Comfort food on Main Street

Friendly staff, quick service and the food was very tasty. Plus we got to listen to the Dapper Dans (barbershop quartet) while we sat outside, bonus!

I came by myself as to let my travel companion sleep in and was given the best service ever. They said 15 minutes for my table and it was precisely so. I ordered coffee (which was surprisingly good) and Mickey Waffles with Apple Chicken sausages. Again, because I was dining solo my food came very quickly but what stood out... More

I probably wouldn't even have found this place, let alone look for it if my friend didn't recommend it. We stopped here for lunch around 11:00AM and there was a 15-20 minute wait. Luckily, the marching band came down Main Street and stopped to perform right outside the cafe! It kept my family entertained while we were waiting. As soon... More

Casual attire, located inside park gates, and very friendly staff. It was a bummer to not find French toast on the menu, but the main breakfast of all the normal eats was perfect. (Eggs, bacon, potatoes, toast) coffee reminded me of vegas coffee, very strong! Cute old fashion place, indoor and outdoor available.

We had 7:30 dinner reservations on June 8th.The service was incredible. Our waiter went out of his way to make our dinner great. We had veggie burgers and they were some of the better veggie burgers we have had. I definitely recommend reservations as the place was slammed most of the night. We weren't planning on it, but we ended... More

We love the Carnation Cafe. The fried chicken is very good. We lucked in to a quick meal here the last time we were at Disneyland, but this time we made reservations. With reservations, we waited about 20 minutes, but the wait was 30-45 minutes without one. The staff looked very tired and hurried, but they were mostly friendly. We... More

The dinner was average, the selections were limited and the noise level was high, being right on main street. I would recommend outdoor seating for people watching, indoor seating is limited, the place is not large.

I had chicken pot pie at the Carnation Cafe once before. It was a great experience and the chef even came out to say "hello" to the diners and ask how their meal was. This visit, I saw that they had chicken fried steak for breakfast and made it a point to go in. I had a mocha, and my... More

We made reservations (which I highly recommend) to celebrate my daughter's 30th birthday here. It was great, the home cooked food was tasty and well prepared. We sat outside which allowed for some people watching, and soaking up the Disney experience. The waiters brought her a chocolate cupcake and sang to her, which made it more of a celebration. I...
