“Yummy clam chowder bowls”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

If you come from San Francisco and know what Boudin Bakery is about this is your spot in Disney CA Adventure. Yummy clam chowder with big chunks of clams and in the famous Boudin sourdough bowl. Let the bread get gooey from the chowder and enjoy! In my opinion that is the best part! Our party also had the Sonoma Chicken Salad in the bread bowl. Who knew...a salad in the famous Boudin sourdough bread bowl. I wasn't as impressed by the salad. The actual salad portion was small despite it being in a bigger sourdough bread bowl. The bread bowl also didn't get gooey like when soup is in it so it really didn't have the same affect. The bread was still good but not as good as when the soup is in it. Lots of seating even when it is busy you can find a table. All seating is outside and some tables are near the water. Most times the line is long and winds out the door...but it moves fast and the chowder in the bowl is worth it. The other good thing about this cafe is that it is located near Chinese and Mexican food too. So if your party wants a lot of different things this might be the spot. You can also go into Carsland through the back entrance located near all these restaurants. We will be coming back to this spot again.

“Soup in sourdough bread bowls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

The clam chowder is spectacular. The broccoli and cheddar is also excellent and tastes a bit sweet. The bread in the bread bowls is perfect. This is one of my favorite foods at Disneyland (California Adventure) and every trip from now I will get soup in a bread bowl. They serve the regular menu for breakfast --along with breakfast items-- so this was great. This cafe is PACKED during the lunch and dinner hours so we went for breakfast and there was no wait (everyone was in line for Radiator Springs in the morning).

My only choice for breakfast while in California Adventure, they are reasonably priced (for being in the park) and absolutely delicious. the food is fresh hot, and well worth the time you may end up standing in line as this place is very popular.

“good bread bowl soup”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 7, 2014

We went here last year and my husband tried their bread bowl soup and it looked so good. So this time we visited I got the chicken enchilada soup in the bread bowl( they make the bread there fresh and you can take a tour to see them make it and other types of bread) and it was very good. The bread is just wonderful. I also got a cinnamon bun that was as big as my hand and the frosting on it just made the flavor come out in the bun. It was about $40.00 for the 2 of us( he got a sandwich with soda and bread pudding) and I had a soda, but well worth the money. I finished the soup but was not able to finish the bread bowl. My husband stated his sandwich was real good also with the chips.

“Great food, but the line to get it is long and slow.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 1, 2014

The food from this location smells and tastes very good. In order to get it, though, you may have to wait through a very long, slow moving, line. What you get at the end might make up for that, though.

Located in the Pacific Wharf food court area of California Adventure, there is seating outside for people to dine at. If that seating happens to be busy, take a walk off the wharf after you get your food, and find some place to sit around the Boardwalk Pizza and Pasta location not too far away.

At night, the ambience of the wharf location is strengthened, as lights go on, and reflect themselves off of the bay area. It's a relaxing place to get away from some crowds, despite crowds still swarming the area. I suppose that's an oxy-moron, but it's the truth, and slightly difficult to explain. The wharf area is busy, and crowded, but also not as loud as some other areas of the park.
