While there is no shortage of tasty treats available in EPCOT’s World Showcase area, for many folks the winner in this area is a combination found along the walkway in the France pavilion.
Take a look along the waterway in EPCOT near France and you’ll see a pair of green booths. If you’re not paying attention, it’s easy to pass these by in favor of the ubiquitous Festival kiosks or more substantial restaurants, but if you’re in the mood for a classic, reliable, and delicious snack, look no further.
As you face the water, the booth on the left features wines and French-inspired cocktails and the booth on the right features warm crepes.
The crepes booth, Crepes de Chefs de France, offers cold drinks, coffee, and Kronenbourg beer and, you guessed it, crepes. The crepes are available in a plain butter and sugar version, as well as embellished varieties with chocolate sauce, homemade hazelnut/chocolate spread (like Nutella), strawberry preserves, premium ice cream, or soft serve ice cream. I know from personal experience that they’ll be happy to hook you up with a combo if you ask nicely. Um, chocolate AND strawberry, yes please.
The drinks booth, Les Vins des Chefs de France, offers several French wines (priced from $7.00 to $15.00 per glass), champagne, and Kronenbourg. But the most popular selections here are the three frozen slush options: orange (Grand Marnier, Grey Goose Orange, and orange juice), citron (Grey Goose Citron and lemonade), and Le Geant Slush (either of the above topped with a Grand Marnier or Gray Goose Citron shot). The basic slushes are $11.50 each, the plussed-up variation is $18.25.
Either booth is a worthy stop during a World Showcase stroll, but if you’re feeling tres Français, you should visit both. The slushes refresh and the crepes are the perfect size for a snack, light enough not to weigh you down in the Florida heat, but substantial enough to stave off hunger pangs while taking a lap around the countries. Bon appetit!
