Cape May Cafe: Disney World’s Best Breakfast Value?
Cape May Cafe’s breakfast buffet has returned! Once again, the most important meal of the day is all-you-can-eat at this whimsical, seaside restaurant located at Disney’s Beach Club.
Before its closure in 2020, Cape May Cafe was known for its beach-themed character breakfast and seafood dinner buffet. However, like most Disney World restaurants in recent months, Cape May has only offered a modified experience.
While characters haven’t returned just yet, the opportunity to eat your weight in Mickey waffles has and at a shockingly good price for a buffet on Disney property.
What You Need to Know
One of the benefits of Cape May Cafe is its accessibility. Not only is the Beach Club conveniently located next to EPCOT’s International Gateway and its Skyliner station, but the resort also offers Friendship boat transportation and a walking path to Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
Breakfast is served from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and costs $25.00 plus tax per adult and $14.00 plus tax per child. Not only is that surprisingly affordable for an all-you-can-eat meal, but Cape May Cafe also offers a 10% Annual Pass discount.
During our visit to Cape May, we intentionally dined towards closing time, just to see if the presentation wanes as the breakfast draws to a close. However, we’re happy to report that the food was hot, the buffet was clean, and everything was well-prepared and delicious!
If you’re looking to dine at Cape May Cafe during your vacation, we strongly suggest booking a reservation at least 60 days out. But if you’re already within that window, be sure to check out our handy TouringPlans Reservation Finder.
Cape May’s buffet offers french toast, pancakes, and your classic Mickey waffles.
There’s also your expected sausage, eggs, fresh fruit, and a glorious heap of bacon.
Love the overnight oats presentation; but if you prefer it without fruit, just ask! The restaurant appeared to be fully staffed and the service was fantastic.
Cape May also offered cheddar biscuits and gravy, as well as a carving station, omelet station, and a crêpe station.
Our advice? Don’t skip the omelet bar.
We’re talking real eggs, tons of fresh veggies, and meat and cheese. We had the spinach, tomato, and cheddar; and we loved it.
Also, Cape May served its specialty salted caramel “beach buns” complete with vanilla cream!
The one disappointment of the meal? The Bloody Mary. It was just meh.
If you’re looking for traditional breakfast fare, plant-based options, or a dining spot for picky eaters, Cape May Cafe has something for everyone and ALL FOR $25.00! We’re actually nervous to hype this up because the price feels too good to be true.
While it’s true that Cape May Cafe has struggled upon its reopening, its comeback of a breakfast buffet was a homerun, even without characters.

Bloody Mary included in that $25 price?
WDW Bloodys are just ok, except for the one I had at the California Grill Brunch.
Ate there sort of by accident on our trip 2 weeks ago. (I was looking for a super early reservation within walking distance of Epcot.) I too was blown away by the quality of the bar, variety of the bar, and the reasonable price. I will be sure to include it again on our next trip!
I really miss beach cafes! The ones over at Savannah Beach are really great! I really look them over at https://www.visitsavannah.com/tybee-island-savannahs-beach to find the best ones!
We haven’t been there since it was a character brkfst, but were delighted by the food most of all. Glad to hear Cape May is coming back strong!
(we started our non-parks day here, so we could go later, in order to relax & enjoy everything — and boy, did we!)
