One of my favorite things to do is try out new brunch spots (I am a millennial, after all). I especially love finding brunch spots at Disney and oh boy, have I found an awesome one for you today!
Wine Bar George is one of the newer additions to Disney Springs, coming to the property only within the last few years, and its brunch is even newer. This restaurant raises the already-high bar on Disney World food and it’s a can’t-miss brunch spot.
I was fortunate to be able to try out a lot of the Wine Bar George brunch menu last month and I can’t wait till I can go back and eat everything again! Let’s take a look at what I had…
Disclosure: This blog post is covering a hosted meal. Wine Bar George covered the cost of the food and drink I tried but did not pay for this review; all opinions remain my own.
Starting off with drinks, you can expect greatness from a place with “wine bar” in their name and they do not disappoint!
I’ve had their famous Dole Whip Frozcato Mimosa before (which you can get the walk-up counter outside any time they’re open) and I had to get it again to kick off brunch. It’s a Dole Whip + mimosa, with a frozen slushy twist. They can also do a Frosé with rosé and vodka that is equally as good (but for brunch, why wouldn’t you get a mimosa?).
They also have an extensive wine list which you can view on their website along with a full brunch (and dinner) menu. They really step it up with their offerings – these aren’t just wines you’ll find anywhere. Ask for information about any of them and the servers can tell you about where the drinks come from (and if they can’t, George can come over and will certainly know)!
In addition to the fancy dole whip, I shifted to prosecco by itself and had a couple glasses of some of the best prosecco I’ve ever had.
Moving on to the food, it was time for some appetizers!
A note on the food: everything (appetizers and entrees) comes in portions to share, so bring a group and share everything so you don’t fill up on just one item.
For our starters, we got the crispy mac and cheese bites, smoked salmon, and charcuterie board.
The mac and cheese bites are another item that Wine Bar George is famous for and everyone loves. Don’t pass up an opportunity to try them for yourselves – you won’t regret it.
The charcuterie board is good as well, but just not a highlight, and for someone who doesn’t like a lot of fish, the salmon was very good and full of flavor.
These 3 appetizers alone could have been a meal for one person, which you can certainly do. But you wouldn’t want to miss out on what’s coming next!
The first entree we got was the French Toast. It sounds simple, but it’s anything but! Don’t underestimate this option. It comes with lots of fruit (blueberries and strawberries) and caramel sauce. It’s sweet and savory, and it’s a great take on this classic breakfast food. I love french toast and am also pretty particular with how I like it – this did not disappoint at all. The sauce and flavor was so nice!
Next up, we got the Steak & Egg Frites to go with the french toast. It puts the “lunch” part into brunch and gave us a nice hearty option on the table. I don’t like eggs, so didn’t eat that part, but loved the meat with the fries. It came with a hollandaise sauce that tasted amazing with the fries as well!
Again, these entrees definitely come in portions to share. With 3 of us, we had a good bit of fries left over that we were too full (or just saving room) to eat and the french toast would have been left, but it was too good to waste so I had to finish it off!
I mentioned we were saving room, because you can’t forget about dessert event at brunch!
There are a few different dessert options, but we opted for the cinnamon bun. It’s bigger than it looks in the picture for sure, and it’s a very good breakfast dessert choice. Of course, I had to keep drinking a glass of prosecco with it to make it taste even better!
Dessert isn’t the stand-out star of the meal, but it stands with the rest of the meal as a great option and it’s worth trying something off that portion of the menu.
Now maybe you’re asking what all this will cost? I’ll be honest, it’s not the cheapest meal in town. You’re also getting a better quality meal and experience than you’ll get at a lot of restaurants, even others on Disney property and at Disney Springs. The servers take the time to answer your questions, the food and drinks are presented well, and you can’t beat the quality of the food and drinks either.
Here’s a breakdown of the prices of everything mentioned here:
- Dole Whip Frozcato Mimosa – $15
- Prosecco – $11 / glass
- Mac & Cheese Bites – $12
- Smoked Salmon – $16
- Charcuterie Board – $25
- French Toast – $17
- Steak & Egg Frites – $25
- Cinnamon Bun – $6
I can’t recommend Wine Bar George enough, honestly! Brunch or dinner, or even just visiting the walk-up counter outside the restaurant, you won’t regret trying something here (even just a drink).
