One visit to the Fountainview Espresso & Bakery at Epcot and you’d understand how it got its name when you see the spectacular view of the musically synchronized Fountain of Nations. Opening on this day in 1993, the bakery immediately made a splash with guests by serving up fresh baked goods, specialty desserts and pastries. From crème brûlée to coconut flan, the offerings were enough to make anyone’s mouth water. And for those looking to “wet” their whistle, a variety of drinks were available, including an option to add various liquors to any coffee.
The Main Street Bakery at the Magic Kingdom and Fountain View at Epcot will soon be adding ‘La Boulange’ baked goods to their menus.
La Boulange is a San Francisco bakery and café serving artisanal pastries, and has partnered with Starbucks to offer them in locations across the country. Many of the items are served warm, and include goodies such as Criossants, Sticky Buns, Brownies, and Cookies.
Many guests are a fans of the Starbucks coffees being served in the parks, but the lack of baked goods that used to be served in the Main Street Bakery is viewed as a loss by quite a few guests. The addition of ‘La Boulange’ products may go some way to giving those guests better quality baked goods.
