I was expecting this busy restaurant at the entrance in Disneyland to be nothing short of a rip-off. But I was pleasantly surprised. Despite the waitresses having trouble understanding my order (no, Scottish is NOT a foreign language!) we were served quickly and were able to find a seat in no time. The food was good (we steered clear of... More

We ate here for dinner at Disneyland. Reservations are a must as it is hard to get a table otherwise. The menu is basically comfort food. For starters we had the chili and the baked potato soup. It is hard to say which one was better. The soup had lots of potato in a very good cream sauce with lots... More

We have eaten here a few times now from breakfast to dinner and it is always worth the wait and price.

We stopped in for breakfast before the park opened. Split the apple granola pancakes. MORE than enough for 2 people to fill up before the park day. Paid about $14 for breakfast and then split the bill between the two of us. Service was slow and maybe it was worse because we were ready go get to the rides.

I've been to Disneyland so many times, but had never tried this restaurant. I decided to give it a try, and I was not disappointed! I made a last minute appointment for 1:50, and when I showed up o was given a buzzer and asked to take a seat. About 10 minutes later, the buzzer went off and we were... More

Service is always fantastic in the park. Can't remember having a bad experience any where here. Food was hot when it was served. Very reasonable wait time. Love the outside patio. We hit this spot as often as possible. Fantastic atmosphere

We had been looking forward to our lunch at the Carnation Cafe. We had made an online booking well in advance which was lucky as it was very busy when we arrived. The service was great and we really enjoyed the food. One of the highlights was the banana split with Mickey sprinkles.

After walking in the park all day and feeling exhausted this was a perfect place to have dinner. The service was great, and the food was delicious. The fried pickles were amazing, along with the catch of the day fish and the sandwhich. Will definitely eat there again next time we visit Disneyland !

This place was the only sit down restaurant we could get a table on a Monday evening. We have eaten here before a few years ago and it was "ok", this time is was wonderful. The staff got us in quickly and the food was delicious and quick as well. Loved the fried pickles! We will be back for sure!
