Great ice cream

The scoops were very generous and well priced. But somehow it didn't taste as rich as the E&B ice cream you get in New England.

Very convenient if you want a quick breakfast before heading off to park. stock up night before if you can to avoid the morning crowds. They have bagels, doughnuts, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt, breakfast sandwiches, juices, coffee and a little of everything. Grab your food and head off to the park! Yummy ice cream also!

My family was at the pool most of the day at the Hard Rock hotel and we needed to cool off a bit from the hot sun, so we decided to stop in and get some ice cream from Emacks and Bolio's. This is part of a few different quick snack shops inside the Hard Rock Hotel. They have a... More

I will probably come back here again, but I ordered three scoops of ice cream. The server put it in a sundae bowl because those bowls are bigger, but the cashier refused to charge me for anything but a sundae. I argued (politely) that I just got three scoops of ice cream for $5, but the cashier said I had... More

We were staying at the Hard Rock with our dance team. It was nice to have the selection of yogurt parfait and fruit, especially for breakfast, but be prepared to spend the money. There is nice variety but you pay for the convenience. They also offer chips and salsa, ice creams, burgers, milks, and other snack foods.

We picked up breakfast at Emack & Bolio's before hitting Universal Studios on a Saturday morning. They have Starbucks coffee, egg sandwiches, bagels and donuts. Only a few tables inside, and a few seats at the coffee bar. It's a good place to grab a quick bite, however.

Handy for buying a pastry or doughnut before heading to the parks but can be a bit expensive. The staff are lovely. I once thought Imhad the exact money for a drink but forgot about the tax which they add on after for some reason. They actually took the difference out of their tip jar whaich was so nince. I...

Wish I'd discovered this sooner. The scones are delicious. I had a strawberry smoothie, which didn't have much flavor. Great place to go for quick breakfast items.

Gorgeous meal, good service and great atmosphere. Place nice and clean - nice restrooms too. Tip - take a warm top with you - don't think we'd fully dried out from the water rides and with the air con we were freezing!
