Disneyland has as much history as the first Disney park to debut around the world. And, one of the points of the park that exists from the beginning is Carnation coffee on Main Street, USA!
The restaurant has been quiet since Disneyland reopened, but the parks revealed customers could return soon. And finally, the day comes to take a step back in time and re-enter the Carnation Cafe.
Carnation Café is open breakfast from 8:00 to 11:00 i lunch from 11:20 to 14:00 just before the doors close for the day. You may know the Carnation Cafe for its famous menu items like the Fried pickles i Walt’s favorite chili. But, the restaurant also introduces new items like the Patty Melt with parmesan crust or he Short rib with homemade Mac and Cheese in honor of its reopening, along with the return of fan favorites.
For Carnation Café, it is highly recommended that you book in advance. However, you can also get a reservation the same day or even if you’re lucky (today we were able to come in and get a seat!). Without further ado, let’s get into it!
To have breakfast
Guests have so many options to choose from at Carnation Cafe, from sweet to savory and even healthy. Options like breakfast, buttermilk pancakes and even oatmeal overnight will be a hit for everyone at your party.
There are also children’s meals, where the kids at your party can choose silver dollar cookies, Mickey cookies or Mickey scrambled eggs as starters, with two sides of seasonal fruit, smoked apple bacon or potatoes for breakfast.

Lunch has many more options than breakfast with a variety of soups, salads and starters to start the afternoon.
For an entree, there are gourmet burgers, sandwiches and more, including Parmesan Toasted Patty Melt, Braised Short Rib and Roasted Turkey Club Sandwich.
It wouldn’t be a good meal without finishing dessert! And guests can try the Apple Pie à la Mode or the seasonal Cheesecake during their visit.
