One afternoon my brother and I went over to investigate this buffet business...
There are so many palm trees at Coronado. I love it!
ARRIBA! The festive air was catching. :)
The breakfast buffet goes from 7 to 11, and lunch is from 11:30 to 2:00. $14.99 for breakfast and $16.99 for lunch. Those are pretty incredible for Disney buffet prices, and I've heard that you can use counter service credits from the dining plan for the buffet!
The dining space was fairly empty that day, and I asked if we could be seated under these cool awnings by the window.
I love this little corner of the Pepper Market...the chairs in tropical pastels, the star lamps above, the palm trees right outside the window...I could sit here all day!
LOVE this decor.
But we aren't here to look at coral-and-aqua-colored furniture! Let's get to the food!
Black bean salad and cucumber salad...
More salad materials...I always like the look of the fresh greens and funky vinagrettes at the salad portions of buffet, but I don't like to have salad at a buffet because stomach space is at a premium and must be reserved for more delicious things. ;)
With its more expensive buffets, Disney does a good job at keeping things well-stocked and fresh. But when you get to the good deal buffets like the Pepper Market or the breakfast buffet over at The Wave, it's best to go early or the food isn't at its peak. My brother and I went towards the end of the lunch hour.
This was the kiddie selection...fries and chicken nuggets, mac and cheese, spaghetti, and a dish of something else that could be chicken or some kind of potato...or something else entirely...I can't quite tell...
The selection of Mexican food was also quite good...they had make your own fajitas and/or tacos, with beef, chicken, beans, and spanish rice.
There were also quesidillas and spicy burrittos. The burritos were really good...pretty spicy, but flavorful, with a soft tortilla.
But, oh. Friends. We haven't even gotten to the desserts yet! Look at all those trays of BREAD. They had bagels, bread for toast, muffins, croissants, cookies, and more.
And it was kinda fun to look at the price board and know that you could have whatever you liked, it was included! But my absolute favorite part was this beautiful case:
These were the same cakes they have at Cafe Rix, only a little smaller, and you could get as many as you wanted!!!
...this was chocolate, and they also had the oreo cake that I tried a few months ago.
YUM. YUM. I totally double-fisted on the cake. Also notice that little bit of fried deliciousness on the right hand plate.
But I think the cake was my favorite. ;)
