A Snack at Les Halles Bakery in the France Pavilion at Epcot

We were out and about on Marathon Sunday and stopped at Les Halles Bakery in France at Epcot for a snack. We had been driving around Walt Disney World cheering on Kate as she ran in her first full length marathon – our next spot to see her was at the United Kingdom Pavilion at Epcot and we had some time until then…

We were aware that the new bakery had opened at France, but didn’t really expect that we’d ever go there (we’d only gone to the old bakery once in 22 years of visiting Epcot); however, they open at 9:00! Great! Now we had a place to get a bite to eat while we waited until time to see Kate again…

The bakery offers

  • two cold sandwiches (Ham & cheese and Turkey BLT),
  • two warm sandwiches (Ham & cheese croissant and Chicken pesto),
  • two soups (Pumpkin and Lobster bisque),
  • three salads (Vegetable, Nicoise, and Bacon & egg)
  • 8 specialities (Quiche Lorraine, Quiche Florentine, Bacon & herb baguette, Garlic & cheese baguette, plain baguette, Tomato & olive “pizza”, Toasted ham & cheese, and a cheese plate)
  • pastries and soft sweets

Nora grabbed us a table outside and protected it from the birds while nick went inside and got some food.

We started with the “Dinde BLT” – basically a turkey club sandwich ($8.50)…

Although it doesn’t have a lot of turkey, the tomato slices are large…

The tomato was very sweet and perfectly ripe and the lettuce was nice and crispy

The turkey and bacon were nice

The bread was nothing special, actually slightly sweet, and the dijon mayo was a good condiment on this sandwich

Overall, it’s a good sandwich but it leaves a much heavier sweet taste rather than savory. If we were hungry and the lines weren’t horrific, we’d eat this again… But if it was a contest between this and Earl of Sandwich, the Earl wins.

Since this is a bakery, nick also got us a chocolate eclair ($3.85)…

Much smaller than American eclairs, this one was approximately six inches long and not very wide

There was chocolate cream filling, some sort of chocolate crumb crust on top, and a chocolate glaze

The chocolate glaze was very hard and broke when we cut the eclair in half

Individually, none of the components stood out as WOW! together it was really tasty

Overall, this seemed more SWEET than CHOCOLATE – but we have to keep in mind that nora makes really intense chocolate baked goods when she bakes. We’re thinking that the vanilla eclair will be more to our liking next time.
