Great little snack shop

Located on the lower level of the Hard Rock Hotel, this is a quaint little snack shop with a nice selection of coffee, bagels, pastries, chips, drinks, ice cream, and other assorted snacks and desserts. It's a good place to start the day with a light and quick breakfast, good for an afternoon... read more

Stopped by here early a couple of mornings for a coffee and muffin before heading to the early park openings. Opened at 6:30 a.m. so perfect timing to head to the parks during Christmas Breaks (parks opened at 7 a.m. over Christmas)

Unfortunately this was the only quick service dining venue at the Hard Rock hotel. The food selection here wasn't any better then you would find at you local gas station - coffee, pastries, ice cream, and a few prepacked items on the shelf next to the cash register.

A wonderful way to end the day at the parks or take a mid-day break from the heat. Delicious Emack and Bolio's and super service.

Nice "grab and go" place. Starbucks, ice cream, fruits, chips, sodas. Not tons of "healthy" food, but lots of comfort food.

Has essentials like water, and a great milk shake bar for the afternoons. But, we were disappointed as an option in the morning. It was advertised to be open at 6am and early admission to the parks was 7am. We thought we could grab a few snacks and coffee on the way to the parks, but it was closed. We... More

Another top notch place in the Hard Rock Hotel! We popped in for ice cream and Stabucks/Emacks emacaccino (a coffee & ice cream combo). 8-) Serving and quality of food was in keeping with the rest of the hotel, no complaints here.
