you are forced to get the 5 course meal with a few selections. The service was good and food was good, not great. Wish we had more choices from the menu. Table was small for four. Dessert was good. Great overall experience.

We took our daughter here (along with her brother) for breakfast. The restaurant was very clean and the food was very good. A great place to eat if you have a sweet tooth. The meal starts with an appetizer of cinnamon buns for each person, then your choice of entree (our party had the pancakes, french toast, and breakfast sandwich...... More

Ugh. A birthday breakfast for our daughter, this was one of those things that you feel like you have to do to be a good parent. Open your wallet, grit your teeth, and get the Dad of the Year Award. For $8, the breakfast was okay, but considering that it cost $19 per person, I walked out of there feeling... More

On Saturday evening we had dinner at the American Girl Cafe! It was a wonderful experience for all of us! My husband and I really enjoyed the meal, the food was GREAT! Our daughters, age 2 and 5 loved dining with the dolls at our table. We did not have our dolls along so we "borrowed" dolls from the restaurant.... More

I took my 8 year old daughter in March. What a great experience. She loved that it was all about her and her doll. The food was fine for lunch. It definitely met her expectations!

We had 4 generations enjoying the 6th birthday of my Grand-daughter. After shopping for an hour we enjoyed a lovely lunch served by Tim. The table was set in pink with the napkins held together with hair bands, to take home for my grand-daughter and her American girl. A booster seat was provided for her American girl and the lunch...

Expensive? Have you eaten at WDW? At a museum food court? Or even Ed Debevic's as we did the following day? At least here you know upfront what it's going to cost you when you make the ressie. We had reservations for the 7:30 seating. We arrived at Water Tower Place at 4-ish basically done with our Mag Mile day.... More

My daughters are now 14 and 16, and we took tea in the café about 8 years ago. We still talk about the visit, and they wanted to re-visit it during our vacation here this week. This time, we brought my 5 year old granddaughter, and she was just as enchanted! We forgot to bring a doll, but they have... More
