Epcot Quick Service Dining Guide

This post contains affiliate links. Read the full disclosure here.

If there is one thing that Disney World’s Epcot has, it’s food. This theme park is widely known for their food and drink around World Showcase along with their annual festivals that feature limited time food offerings. So this guide to Epcot Quick Service dining will be a lot. But we’ll get to all of it to help you make the best dining decisions for your trip!

What is Quick Service Dining at Disney World?

Dining is classified in two ways at Disney World: Table Service and Quick Service. Quick Service restaurants are going to be restaurants that operate like fast food: You order at the counter and then find your seat.

I like to break Quick Service dining in Disney World down into two subcategories though: Quick Service Restaurants and Quick Service snack locations.

At Quick Service Restaurants you’ll find full menus, while at snack locations you’ll find limited options. Sometimes this might be enough for a meal (like at a place that offers hot dogs), but often the snack location may offer just one or two special items or just sweet treats.

In this guide to Epcot Quick Service dining, we’ll break the Quick Service locations down between restaurants and snack spots.

Best Quick Service Restaurants at Epcot

Before we get into all the Quick Service dining options in Epcot (because there are a lot of them!), let’s talk about the BEST. When planning a perfect Epcot dining day, here are the best Quick Service options to choose from!

There are some really great options to choose from in Epcot, and eating at Quick Service restaurants is a great way to save money at Disney!

Best Quick Service Breakfast at Epcot

I think a grab-and-go is perfect for breakfast in the morning so you can hit as many rides as possible before it gets too crowded. Here are the best options:

  • Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie in France is my number one choice for an Epcot breakfast. In fact, it’s probably my number one choice for all three meals if I’m being honest. You can get French pastries and quiches here for a perfect French breakfast.
  • Kingla Bakeri Og Kafe is another great breakfast option. They have Norwegian pastries as well as classics like cinnamon rolls. This is a spot for people who love sweet items for breakfast!
  • Connections Café in World Celebration (the center of the park) is the Starbucks location in Epcot, so you can grab you coffee as well as things like pastries and breakfast sandwiches.

Best Quick Service Lunch at Epcot

A Quick Service lunch where you can sit down and cool off is perfect for mid-day. Here are the best Epcot Quick Service restaurants that also have plenty of indoor seating:

  • Regal Eagle Smokehouse in the American Adventure pavilion offers BBQ from different US regions. It’s solidly good and should please pretty much any palate, plus there is lots of indoor seating.
  • Connections Eatery in World Celebration has a family-friendly menu with a bit of international flair. It’s a beautiful new space with lots of indoor seating.
  • Sunshine Seasons in The Land Pavilion in World Nature has lots of options and lots of seating. I’ll be honest, it’s not my top dining choice, but the food is decent and the inside seating area is gigantic.

Best Quick Service Dinner at Epcot

Dinner at Epcot is a perfect time to either grab something to go and enjoy an evening stroll around World Showcase or find a spot where you can dine and watch the fireworks.

  • Yorkshire County Fish Shop in the UK pavilion has excellent fish and chips. Plus, if you time your dinner right, you can sit in their outdoor seating area and eat with a great view of the fireworks!
  • La Cantina de San Angel is another spot where you can grab some food and sit for a good fireworks view. Just be sure to get there with plenty of time to spare because it will start to get crowded!
  • Crêpes À Emporter by La Crêperie de Paris in France has become a favorite with park goers. They offer both sweet and savory crepes. You won’t get a fireworks view here, but I think this makes for a great quick dinner.

How to Use Mobile Order at Epcot

If there is a restaurant you want to dine at the offers Mobile Order on the My Disney Experience app, USE IT! Mobile Order can save you so much time waiting in line for food.

You can place your order through the app and pick the time you want to pick your food up.

Then, when you arrive at the restaurant click “I’m Here” and they’ll prepare your food. Just wait for your order to be called near the designated Mobile Order pick-up spot.

Pro Tip: If you already know you plans for the day, place your orders early! Some pick-up times can get snatched up, leaving you to negotiate the long ordering line. You can definitely place your entire day of food orders in the app first thing in the morning (which I have done before).

Here are the Quick Service Restaurants that offer Mobile Order at Epcot:

  • Connections Eatery
  • Yorkshire County Fish Shop
  • Regal Eagle Smokehouse
  • Sommerfest
  • Karamell-Küche
Regal Eagle Smokehouse

Epcot Quick Service Restaurants

Because there are SO many dining locations in Epcot, we’re going to break them down into groups by location, starting with the front of the park. These Quick Service Restaurants are the ones that, for the most part, offer pretty full menus.

World Celebration Quick Service Restaurants

Connections Eatery

Connections Eatery is a newer Epcot restaurant that opened in April 2022 as part of the remodel of the old Future World. It is located in World Celebration behind Spaceship Earth, toward Guardians of the Galaxy.

The menu here gives you a glimpse around the world, as they offer things like a French Bistro Burger, General Tso Chicken Salad, and Curry-Spiced Pizza. They are open for lunch and dinner, and they offer mobile order.

World Nature Quick Service Restaurants

Sunshine Seasons

Sunshine Seasons is an Epcot Quick Service staple. It’s located in The Land Pavilion, and they offer a wide-variety of dishes. When you enter, you’ll see different lines where you can choose different dishes. There are things like pizza, fish tacos, Asian noodles, rotisserie chicken and more.

They are open for lunch and dinner, and this is a great place to cool off on a hot day.

World Discovery Quick Service Restaurants

There is actually not a true Quick Service restaurant in World Discovery right now, so you’ll need to head somewhere else in the park if you want a full Quick Service meal! They do have some snack spots though, and we’ll get to those in a bit.

World Showcase Quick Service Restaurants

Yorkshire County Fish Shop (UK)

Ok, so I could debate about whether Yorkshire County Fish Shop is a true Quick Service Restaurant or just a snack stop because their menu IS limited.

But I think it has traditionally been seen as a Quick Service restaurant because it can easily be your whole meal. And I guess because the one order comes with a side? Also maybe because they have a really nice outdoor seating area behind the ordering window.

Their menu is limited though to only beer-battered fish and chips. But I will say that I think they are pretty delicious and make for a great lunch or dinner.

Yorkshire County Fish Shop is open for lunch and dinner, and they offer mobile order.

Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie (France)

Les Halles is probably my favorite Quick Service restaurant in Epcot. It’s a French Boulangerie-Patisserie that offers everything from croissant sandwiches to quiches to eclairs. I truly love this place, and I also think it is pretty reasonably priced for Disney World.

They are open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Crêpes À Emporter by La Crêperie de Paris (France)

One of the newer Quick Service restaurants in Epcot is Crêpes À Emporter by La Crêperie de Paris, which is right next to the new Table Service restaurant La Crêperie de Paris. This is a crepe stand, where you can get both savory and sweet crepes as well as hard ciders and wines.

This crepe stand is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Katsura Grill (Japan)

Japan’s Quick Service Restaurant, Katsura Grill, offers sushi as well as several teriyaki dishes. They also have a really lovely seating area in the gardens of the Japan pavilion, which can be a nice peaceful break out of the crowds.

Katsure Grill is open for lunch and dinner.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse: Craft Drafts & Barbecue (The American Adventure)

Regal Eagle Smokehouse opened in The American Adventure pavilion in early 2020. Its menu features BBQ from various regions across the USA. It’s also subtly themed with the Muppets (because of Sam Eagle), which is really fun.

This is a Quick Service restaurant that has a lot of indoor seating, so its a good choice on days when the weather isn’t great because you should be able to find a seat.

Regal Eagle Smokehouse is open for lunch and dinner, and they offer mobile order.

Lotus Blossom Café (China)

Lotus Blossom Café in China offers menu items like egg rolls, pot stickers, and orange chicken. They also have some unique desserts, including caramel-ginger ice cream.

This restaurant is open for lunch and dinner.

Lotus Blossom Café

La Cantina de San Angel (Mexico)

Ok first of all, there are entirely too many restaurants with “San Angel” in the their name in the Mexico Pavilion. While the other two are Table Service restaurants, La Cantina de San Angel is a Quick Service spot. It’s located in the outdoor portion of the pavilion next to La Hacienda de San Angel.

They offer pretty standard Tex-Mex food like tacos, empanadas, and nachos. Also, they have a good amount of covered seating and their seating area is a great place to watch the fireworks from.

La Cantina is open for lunch and dinner.

Epcot Quick Service Snack Locations

Again, let’s break these snack stops down by location. Remember, these Quick Service locations are the stands and kiosks that will offer more limited menus.

We’ve also tried to note the times these locations are open. Many are open from park open to park close generally, but some may not open until lunch (around 11:00 or 12:00).

Also, remember that in addition to these location, you will find carts selling snacks like popcorn and ice cream throughout the park as well as other spots with beverages.

World Celebration Quick Service Snack Locations

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea

This isn’t *quite* inside World Celebration because this coffee stop is at the Epcot Monorail Station. But this Joffrey’s Tea & Coffee makes it super easy to grab some coffee or a quick pastry on your way into the park. And it opens well before Epcot does, so you can stop here on your way in before rope drop.

Connections Café

Connections Café is the Starbucks location in Epcot. They offer coffee, breakfast sandwiches, and pastries. They are open from park open to park close, so you can stop by any time for your caffeine boost.

Connections Café is also open for Early Entry, so you can stop by if you need to. (However, I wouldn’t recommend you spend your precious Early Entry time here.)

World Nature Quick Service Snack Locations

The Land Cart

The Land Cart is located just outside The Land pavilion. They offer fruits and vegetables for snacks, along with drinks and a Mickey pretzel.

The Land Cart is open from park open to close, including Early Entry.

World Discovery Quick Service Snack Locations

World Showcase Quick Service Snack Locations

Refreshment Port (Canada)

Refreshment Port is located just before you get to the Canada pavilion from World Celebration. They offer basic theme park food like chicken nuggets and soft serve ice cream. But they also have a touch of Canada with poutine on the menu.

They are open for lunch and dinner.

Joffrey’s Coffee & Tea (Canada)

Because Epcot is such a big park, there are LOTS of coffee locations throughout the park. This Joffrey’s is located right before you get to the walkway to the World ShowPlace Pavilion between Canada and the UK.

Joffrey’s offers drinks and pastries and is open from park open to park close.

UK Beer Cart

Sample UK beers on tap at the UK Beer Cart. It’s located right outside the Rose & Crown Pub and is perfect if you just want to grab a quick beer to go. There isn’t any food on the menu here, just drinks.

It is open from mid-morning to park close.

L’Artisan des Glaces (France)

L’Artisan des Glaces is the ice cream shop in France. This is also where you can get the popular treat Croque Glacé, which is a scroop of ice cream pressed between brioche bread. (I’ll be honest…I think that treat is a little overrated though.)

This ice cream spot is open from around lunch time to park close.

Croqué Glace from France Pavilion

Les Vins des Chefs de France

Les Vins de Chefs de France is where you can stop to get some French wines. They also have alcoholic slushes. Like the UK Beer Cart, there isn’t any food here, so it’s just a drinks stop.

They are open from lunchtime to park close.

Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina (Morocco)

Tangierine Café used to serve a robust menu of Moroccan dishes. But recently the menu has been greatly scaled back and includes just kababs and hummus.

It’s open from lunch until park close.

Tangierine Café

Oasis Sweets & Sips (Morocco)

Oasis Sweets & Sips offers Moroccan pastries like baklava and almond crescent cookies along with drinks like sangria.

They are open from park open to park close, including Early Entry.

Kabuki Cafe (Japan)

Kabuki Cafe in Japan is where you can get kakigori, traditional Japanese shaved ice. They also offer a couple of different sushi rolls and some unique beverages.

They are open from lunch time until park close.

Funnel Cake (The American Adventure)

The American Adventure’s Funnel Cake stand doesn’t require a lot of explanation. They have funnel cakes. But you can get them with special toppings like cookies and cream or chocolate sauce.

The Funnel Cake stand is open from around lunch time to park close.

Block & Hans (The American Adventure)

Block & Hans is stand near the Funnel Cake kiosk in The American Adventure. They offer mostly beers, but you can also get a Mickey pretzel here.

They are open from lunch time to a little before park close.

Between The American Adventure and Italy, there is also a Joffrey’s Tea & Coffee. You can get coffee, tea, and pastries here. They are open from park open to park close.

Gelateria Toscana (Italy)

Gelateria Toscana is where you can get ice cream, sorbet, and floats in Italy along with a few different Italian pastries. They also have several beverage options. It’s a small kiosk toward the entrance of the pavilion.

They are open from lunchtime to park close.

Pizza Window (Italy)

Next to Via Napoli in Italy, there is small pizza window where you can get pizza by the slice. You won’t always find this spot on the My Disney Experience app, but if you want to just grab a slice of pizza it’s worth stopping by to check if it’s open. (Although I’ll be honest: The pizza I’ve had here hasn’t been my favorite.)

Pizza from Pizza Window in Italy

Sommerfest (Germany)

Sommerfest is a Quick Service spot located at the back of the Germany pavilion near the Biergarten Restaurant. They serve bratwurst, jumbo pretzels, and German beers and wines.

They are open from lunch time until the evening (not always to park close), and they also offer mobile order.

Karamell-Küche (Germany)

Karamell-Küche is a candy shop in Germany that is devoted entirely to caramel. You’ll find caramel popcorn, caramel apples, caramel squares with all kinds of flavors, caramel cookie concoctions, and more.

They are open from park open to park close, and they offer mobile order. And since this is a pretty popular spot, it’s not a bad idea to get those mobile orders in early in the day, especially if there is something specific you want.

Karamell-Küche

Refreshment Outpost

Refreshment Outpost is an area located between the Germany and China pavilions. Technically it is kind of Africa themed, but the restaurant offers hot dogs and ice cream, along with occasional Festival Offerings.

Joy of Tea (China)

Joy of Tea is a small kiosk at the front of the China Pavilion. They offer tea, beer, cocktails, and egg rolls.

They are open from lunch to park close.

Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe (Norway)

Kringla Bakeri Og Kafe is a bakery in Norway that offers Scandinavian pastries, coffees, and other beverages. The favorite item here is the School Bread (although it’s not my favorite since I’m not a fan of coconut). But you’ll also find more standard items here like cinnamon rolls and cookies.

They are open from park open to park close, so this is a great place to grab a quick breakfast if you are riding Frozen Ever After first thing in the morning.

Kringla Bakeri og Kafe

Choza de Margarita (Mexico)

Choza de Margarita is of course a Quick Service spot that mostly specializes in margaritas. But they also have several food items on their menu like empanadas, tacos, and guacamole with chips.

It is open from around lunchtime to park close, and is located in the outdoor portion of the Mexico pavilion.

Joffrey’s Tea & Coffee (Showcase Plaza)

Okay, one more Joffrey’s location! This one is located at the entrance to World Showcase near the Mexico pavilion. And like the other Joffrey’s carts, you can get coffee, tea, and pastries here.

Alcohol and Bars and Epcot

Alcoholic drinks have definitely become a thing in Epcot. It’s a pretty popular activity to “drink around the world,” sampling specialty drinks from the different World Showcase Pavilions. Many of the Epcot Quick Service restaurants mentioned above will have alcoholic beverages, as will a lot of the festival booths at Epcot’s festivals (more on that below).

There are also several lounges where you can purchase alcoholic beverages and sit and enjoy them. These include Rose & Crown Pub, Tutto Gusto Wine Cellar, and La Cava de Tequila.

Festival Booths at Epcot

In addition to all of these amazing Epcot Quick Service restaurants, Epcot also almost always has a special festival going on. And these festivals come with dozens of their own food booths that offer unique items.

There is no way we could list all of these here (especially because they change every year!). But here are the Festivals Epcot has, along with some of the food highlights you might want to watch out for.

Epcot Festival of the Arts Dining

The Epcot Festival of the Arts is dedicated to all forms of art: visual, musical, and culinary. You’ll find inventive and colorful food throughout the park’s booths.

Some favorite dishes from previous festivals include the Rainbow Cake, Tomato Soup with Grilled Cheese, Beef Wellington, and the Sushi Donut.

When you enter Epcot, you can pick up a Festival Passport at the front of the park to see all of your food options and locations.

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival Dining

Epcot Flower and Garden Festival is dedicated to….well flowers and gardens. You’ll find character topiaries all around the park, along with food booths dedicated to garden-friendly food.

Some fan-favorite dishes include the Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade, Orange Sesame Tempura Shrimp, Orange Blossom-Saffron Cake, Avacado Toast, and the Taco Vampiro.

Be sure to pick up a Festival Passport at the front of the park to see all the festival food locations.

Epcot Food and Wine Festival Dining

The Food and Wine Festival is of course dedicated to food, so you’ll find all kinds of specialty dishes and drinks across the park.

Some popular Food and Wine Festival dishes include the Wild Mushroom Beef Filet Mignon, Warm Reclette Swiss Cheese with Alpine Ham, the Impossible Meatballs, and the Braised Beef Poutine.

Pick up your Festival Passport at the front of the park to see all food both locations and menus!

Epcot Festival of the Holidays

The Festival of the Holidays takes place in November and December each year and celebrates winter holidays around the world, but mostly Christmas. Across the parks, you’ll find holiday favorite foods and comfort dishes at the various food booths. And holiday cookies are a big part of it!

Some favorite dishes include the Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl, the Kalua Pork, the Slow-Roasted Turkey, the Linzer Cookie, and the Frozen Hot Chocolate.

As with every other Epcot Festival, pick up a Festival Passport at the front of the park to see where all the food is located.

Gluten-Free & Allergy Friendly Quick Service Dining at Epcot

Those with food allergies and dining sensitivities will still have plenty of option for Quick Service dining in Epcot!

If you are particularly allergic to a food item, the best option is definitely a Table Service restaurant because you will be able to talk to the chef and understand how the food is prepared. But there are also several restaurants in Epcot with dedicated allergy menus, and of course there are restaurants where there are just naturally allergy-friendly choices.

Here are the Epcot Quick Service restaurants where you can find dedicated allergy-friendly menus:

  • Sunshine Seasons in The Land Pavilion in World Nature
  • Connections Eatery in World Celebration
  • Regal Eagle Smokehouse in the American Adventure
