Always grab a breakfast we can eat/drink while walking to the parks for 7am opening, just has to be done! Always appreciative they are open and staff serving at that ungodly hour!! Coffee always sets me up to head for Harry Potter, keep up the good work.

Stayed here in August 2016. Always a treat to have their ice cream creations. They also have quick breakfast items when you are in a rush.

When you visit the Hard Rock Hotel, you must pay a visit to Emack and Bolios, the Stairways to Heaven Ice Cream and pizza is to die for ! The Ice Cream is great to have by the pool and the pizza after a hard day hitting the parks.

It seems like they are always open. Whether it is early morning breakfast before the early access to Universal or it's late night after Universal closes, they are available. A quick snack, a pizza, a sandwich, chips, beer or some delicious ice cream. Staff was always friendly and helpful.
