Best Values at Epcot Flower and Garden 2022

We all know that Walt Disney World isn’t cheap.

From ticket prices increasing, to purchasing Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections, to booking hotels, Disney vacation expenses seem never-ending.

So, when it comes to buying food and drinks at the parks, specifically the 2022 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, we want to make sure you aren’t wasting your money on options that just aren’t worth it.

Let’s face it, festival items can certainly be overpriced, especially when you’re being served smaller plates.

cider house menu items - flower and garden 2022

After eating and drinking every menu item (144, to be exact), we’ve narrowed down which dishes and beverages are not only tasty, but where you can get the best bang for your buck.

Keep in mind that not everything at the booths are best values, but there are quite a few options that are decent pricing and portion-wise.

Here are the best values at Epcot Flower and Garden this year.

Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market (Germany)

bauernmarkt flower and garden booth

You really can’t go wrong with any festival booth at Germany.

Bauernmarkt: Farmer’s Market has decent food and drink options, including one dish that serves up a nice-sized portion, is reasonably priced, and is even plant-based!

bauernmarkt menu - germany - flower and garden

Potato Pancake with House-made Applesauce is a good choice for vegans and vegetarians. These are super tasty, filling, and the applesauce is freshly homemade.

Plus, you get 2 potato pancakes for only $4.75!

While not the best plant-based option at Flower and Garden, these are still good and worth the money.

Potato Pancakes with Applesauce

These potato pancakes are served with house-made apple sauce. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

potato pancakes with apple sauce - bauernmarkt - flower and garden 2022

Price: $4.75
Special Diets: Plant-Based, Gluten-Friendly
Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Mushy apple sauce topping + soft potato pancakes = bad texture overall with pretty bland flavors.
Heather: I love potato cakes and these are good. I like the ham ones better, though.
Felicia: The applesauce tastes homemade and is delicious. The potato pancake is potato-y and fine. I don’t personally care for this flavor combination, but it’s well executed.
Allyson: The potato pancakes are well down. The applesauce is an interesting combo but you can’t go wrong with the potato pancakes.

Keep in mind that Germany is typically a busy pavilion, so lines can get long.

If you’re looking for something good to drink here, we also recommend the Stiegl Brewery Raspberry Radler.

The Citrus Blossom (Near Port of Entry)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

citrus blossom booth flower and garden 2022

While we’re fans of most of the offerings at this booth, especially the Tuna Tataki Bowl and the beer flight, don’t sleep on the Grapefruit Tart.

citrus blossom menu - flower and garden 2022

For $5.25, you get a decent-sized dessert that isn’t just pretty and only takes good photos for social media.

This tart is delicious in all the right ways and worth every penny.

Grapefruit Tart

A Grapefruit Tart with Grapefruit Curd, Lychee Jam, Ginger Mousse, and Yuzu Cream.

Grapefruit Tart - citrus blossom - flower and garden

Price: $5.25
Special Diets: N/A
Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light and fluffy, with just the right amount of grapefruit flavor. Pretty presentation and good portion.
Heather: I was expecting this to be sweeter than it was – which is a good thing. It is still sweet, but the lemon curd is a fantastic bite of sour!
Felicia: I wanted to like this but just didn’t work for me. The texture is entirely mushy and the flavors just don’t really go together that well.
Allyson: I really enjoyed this. Great flavor. I already feel like grapefruit is a hard flavor to capture — wish there would’ve been more — but still thought it was refreshing and a tasty dessert.

Thanks to the adorable Orange Bird sipper sold here, Citrus Blossom can be a busier booth at times.

Epcot Farmers Feast (Near Creations Shop and Test Track)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

farmers feast booth flower and garden

Farmers Feast is a standout booth.

This is a unique booth, because the menus rotate throughout Flower and Garden.

We tried the Early Bloom Menu, which is only available through April 9.

epcot farmers feast early bloom menu - flower and garden 2022

Following this, the menu will rotate to the Springtime Menu (April 10 through May 21) and then the Summer Solstice Menu (May 22 through July 4).

The beverages are the same throughout the entirety of Flower & Garden.

As for the Early Bloom Menu, we really enjoyed it, specifically the Char-grilled Bison Ribeye (only available through April 9) and Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail (available through July 4, the end of the festival).

Char-grilled Bison Ribeye

Char-grilled Bison Ribeye with Creamy Leek Fondue, Roasted Carnival Cauliflower, Romanesco, and Port Wine-Goat Cheese Butter. This is a new 2022 festival item.

Char-grilled Bison Ribeye - farmers feast - flower and garden

Price: $8.00
Special Diets: Gluten-Friendly
Rating: 5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Whew! What a fantastic combo of tender meats and delicious veggies. Good portion. Fantastic tastes.
Heather: Very good. The ribeye was extremely tender and the flavors were very … homey? Made me feel like I was eating Sunday dinner at my grandmas.
Felicia: This is incredible. The bison has a great sear that is seasoned perfectly (kind of a Montreal seasoning flavor). The creamy fondue is delicious and the cauliflower complements the bison and creamy leek well. It’s a good mix of flavors and textures. Absolutely loved it. Huge portion, too.

Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail

A Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail featuring Islamorada Brewery & Distillery Hibiscus Gin.

Hibiscus Lemonade Cocktail - farmers feast - flower and garden

Price: $11.00
Made with Alcohol?: Yes
Rating: 4/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Beautiful presentation, good size portion, gin flavor pretty strong.
Heather: Again – extremely refreshing. If you have to pick one drink here, choose this one.
Felicia: Beautiful presentation. Decent portion size. The hibiscus flavor is present but not overpowering. Delicious light cocktail.
Allyson: This is a good and refreshing cocktail. Plus, it’s really pretty. I loved the flavors a lot. Definitely tastes like a spiked lemonade.

For $8.00, the ribeye dish makes a great small plate for one person.

The cocktail may sound pricey at $11.00, but this isn’t horrible, especially for a festival item and the amount you get.

Epcot Sunshine Griddle (Near Test Track)

sunshine griddle flower and garden booth

Sunshine Griddle is the booth to visit if you’re a breakfast fan.

While we didn’t love all of the items here (3 words: Froot Loops shake), there are 2 dishes that are decently priced for what you’re served and also taste great.

sunshine griddle menu - flower and garden 2022

Avocado Toast may not be the most exciting menu item, but look at this piece! It costs $6.00, is so pretty, and is a great option.

If you want something sweeter, order the Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites for $4.50. You even get 3 big pieces, which are prefect for sharing.

Avocado Toast

This is Avocado Toast with Marinated Toybox Tomatoes on Toasted Ciabatta. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Wanted to love it more. Bread was nicely toasted, presentation lovely, but flavors underwhelming.
Heather: It is pretty and fresh. The toast is buttery and delicious. All-round great option here.
Felicia: Beautiful dish. The portion is large, the avocado is fresh and light and the marinated tomatoes are so good. Love love loved this.
Allyson: Good piece of avocado toast, tastes light. Great portion size. But it is a bit hard to eat.

Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites

Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites served with Cream Cheese Frosting and Candied Bacon. Tip: You can ask for these without the candied bacon.

Price: $4.50
Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
Rating: 3.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Crispy outside, soft inside. Warm, delicious. Bit messy though.
Heather: Is it messy? Yes. Is it tasty? Perhaps. Am I tipsy? A little. This tastes best FRESH. Otherwise, it gets extra greasy.
Felicia: Didn’t care for this. The cinnamon roll bites are filled with cream which is gross and weird and hard to eat. The bacon was a nice addition but overall not good. Weren’t served hot either.
Allyson: We ordered one without bacon (yes, you can ask), and these are just as good as last year. I love fried dough and cream cheese frosting. Yum! Great portion size and good for sharing.

If you don’t eat meat like me (Allyson), be sure to order the Fried Cinnamon Roll Bites without bacon. Just tell the Cast Member as soon as you hand them your receipt.

The Honey Bee-stro (Near Port of Entry)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

the honey bee-stro epcot flower and garden 2021

The Honey Bee-stro booth is where you’ll find food and beverages infused with honey.

This turned out to be one of our top booths and mainly thanks to the following savoy dish and dessert.

honey bee-stro menu - flower and garden 2022

You can steer clear of the Honey Peach-Freeze with Blueberry Vodka or the Honey Wine, you definitely need to try the flatbread and cheescake.

Not only do they only cost $6.00 and $5.00, respectively, but you get such a good serving size! Oh, yeah, they’re also both delicious.

Lavender Honey Mustard-marinated Chicken Flatbread

Lavender Honey Mustard-marinated Chicken Flatbread with Whipped Honey-Ricotta Cheese, Marinated Vegetables, and Purple Haze Lavender Goat Cheese.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: The mustard taste comes through strong and the goat cheese lingers. Delicious.
Heather: Delicious – and a good size portion. Great for sharing!
Felicia: Absolutely LOVED this. The flatbread is soft with a nice little crisp that holds up well. All the toppings go together well. It’s slightly sweet and slightly savory. Yum yum yum.

Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake

Local Wildflower Honey-Mascarpone Cheesecake with Orange Blossom Honey Whipped Cream, Whipped Honey, Crystalized Honey, Honeycomb, Dehydrated Honey, and Fennel Pollen Meringue Kisses.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Honey in various forms and textures. Enjoyed this light dessert.
Heather: Delicious. Loved it. Light and fresh.
Felicia: Delicious. The cheesecake is a solid cheesecake and all of the various honey components are good and add to it. Slight orange flavor.
Allyson: As a huge cheesecake fan, I thought this is ok, not bad, but just ok. I’ve had better cheesecake at festivals.

The Honey Bee-stro is one Flower and Garden booth where you can have a nice meal without worrying about running around to multiple outdoor kitchens.

La Isla Fresca (Between Morocco and France)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

la isla fresca flower and garden booth 2022

La Isla Fresca is a booth all about Caribbean-inspired fare.

The main dishes are are all reasonably priced, but there are 2 definitely worth your time and money.

la isla fresa menu - flower and garden 2022

Between the plant-based dessert that only somehow costs $4.50 and the arepa topped with shrimp that is priced at $6.75, you can easily grab yourself a small meal here and walk away satisfied.

Coconut Tres Leches

Coconut Tres Leches is a vanilla cake soaked in oat milk, almond milk, and coconut milk with toasted coconut. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

coconut tres leches - la isla fresca - flower and garden 2022

Special Diets: Plant-Based
Rating: 4.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the light coconut flavor. Manages to be soft without being soggy.
Heather: One of my favorite sweets from this festival! Loved it. Coconut without being fake and not too sweet.
Felicia: This was so good. The coconut is light, the whipped topping is light and perfectly sweet, not too much. The cake is moist and delicious but not soggy. So good and perfect on a hot day if you need (or want) a dessert.
Allyson: Give me all the coconut. Love this so much. So so good. And it’s plant-based!

Arepa topped with Shrimp, Crushed Avocado Ají and Tomato Sauce

Arepa (cornmeal cake) topped with Shrimp, Crushed Avocado Ají and Tomato Sauce.

Rating: 4/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the mix of textures and flavors. Slight kick to it.
Felicia: Nice sized shrimp that are plump and cooked well. Little bit of spice from the aji’ and the tomato and avocado are delicious. The arepa looks soft and mostly is but you will need to cut it or pick it up to eat.

Better yet, there’s an Encanto-themed garden next to the booth, but it’s only open through May 22, 2022.

Northern Bloom (Canada)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

nothern bloom booth flower and garden

With Canada being at the start of the World Showcase, it’s a pretty popular area.

Plus, guests typically love the food here.

And we’re here to tell you this year’s Flower and Garden booth, Northern Bloom, is one where you can purchase 2 solid dishes and get a good value in the process.

northern bloom menu - flower and garden 2022

Here you’ll find Beef Tenderloin Tips for $7.00 and Seared Scallops for $7.25. And just look at how much you get!

These taste really good too.

Beef Tenderloin Tips

Beef Tenderloin Tips, Mushroom Bordelaise Sauce, and Whipped Potatoes with Garden Vegetables.

Rating: 4/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tender beef, delicious gravy, creamy mashed potatoes.
Heather: Generous portion, and good beef flavor. Plus, it has mashed potatoes so it got bonus points for that.
Felicia: If the beef was more tender I would have probably given this a 5. The flavor is delicious. The sauce is rich and potatoes are perfect. But the beef is very chewy.

Seared Scallops

Seared Scallops with French Green Beans, Butter Potatoes, Brown Butter Vinaigrette and Apple-wood-smoked Bacon.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Great mix of ingredients, flavors, and nice sized portion. Loved it.
Felicia: Scallops are large and cooked well. The vinaigrette gives everything a nice flavor. The green beans are firm and maybe slightly undercooked but was good.

If you want to pair a beverage with either of these dishes, we recommend the beer flight.

Pineapple Promenade (Near Port of Entry)

pineapple promenade flower and garden booth

As pleasing to the eye as this booth is, overall, Pineapple Promenade is just ok.

Many of the items aren’t that exciting or unique to the festival, but don’t let that discourage you because we believe the following food and drink items are great values.

pineapple promenade menu - flower and garden

The Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade is a Flower and Garden staple. Not only is it non-alcoholic, but it’s refreshing and only costs $4.50.

There’s also the Spicy Hot Dog that you can order for $8.00.

Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade

The Frozen Desert Violet Lemonade is non-alcoholic and a fan-favorite.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Always popular at the festival. Pretty, refreshing, could be too sweet for some.
Heather: I know people love this but it just tastes like sugar water.
Felicia: Great drink without alcohol. It’s fun, pretty, and sweet but not too bad. Easy to drink.
Allyson: Lives up to the hype. So refreshing and such good flavor. Love this.

Spicy Hot Dog

Spicy Hot Dog with Pineapple Chutney and Plantain Chips.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the flavors and crunch. Slightly spicy.
Heather: I do like a spicy wiener. Did not like the crumbled chips on top. Eww, David.
Felicia: Flavors were great and liked for a hotdog. But the bun got soggy so fast which made it hard to eat.

Warning: do not order the Sparkling Pineapple Wine at this booth. It’s beyond gross.

Tangierine Café (Morocco)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina is our favorite booth out of the entire festival.

There are so many good options here that don’t make you feel like you’re being ripped off.

All 3 of the following only cost $5.75! That’s it. Just look at the portions.

Mediterranean Flatbread

Mediterranean Flatbread with za’atar, artichokes, olives, mozzarella, and feta cheese. This is a new 2022 festival item.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: What an incredible deal. So many great flavors and for not much money.
Heather: Frick yeah! So good. Love the combinations of flavors. This isn’t your “typical” flatbread!
Felicia: The Za’atar sauce is strongly spiced and not my favorite but the flatbread otherwise is delicious. It’s also a good portion for the price and great option for non-meat eaters.
Allyson: So good! Loved this. Great flavor and fresh. Great bang for your buck.

Harissa Chicken Grilled Kebab

Shannon: Good flavors. Slightly spicy. Strange texture to the lamb.
Heather: They knock it out of the park here. Don’t sleep on these kebabs!
Felicia: This is also very good. Perfectly seasoned, rich flavor, and it’s tender. Chickpea and carrot salad adds a little sweetness and complements the kebab well.

You really can’t go wrong at this booth. Be sure to make time here during your visit to the festival.

Trowel & Trellis (Near Disney Traders)

A WDW Prep School Favorite

trowel and trellis flower and garden booth

Trowel & Trellis is the only booth at Flower and Garden that serves a completely plant-based menu.

Even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, you should try at least one of these dishes.

trowel and trellis menu - flower and garden

In the words of Heather (as you can see below), “Stuff like this would make it very easy to be vegetarian.”

You can’t go wrong with the portion sizes and the prices, which range from $4.75 to $6.75.

Grilled Baby Vegetables

This is a lighter dished featuring grilled baby vegetables with hummus cream and red pepper coulis. This dish is also part of the Garden Graze, the food crawl where you can earn a prize.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Nice portion, great mix of crispy veggies, delicious sauces
Heather: Very light and refreshing. And, at only $4.50 a good snack.
Felicia: If you’re looking for something light and healthy-ish, this was good. The veggies were grilled well and the hummus was good and red pepper coulis added a nice pizazz.
Allyson: Great if you want veggies and a lighter meal. Though, just hard to eat since they’re on a skewer.

Boneless Impossible Korean Short Rib

Boneless Impossible Korean Short Rib with Cilantro-Lime Rice, Danmuji Slaw, and Kimchee Mayonnaise.

Shannon: Great mix of ingredients, colorful presentation, really fantastic flavors, Kimchee mayo a particular standout
Heather: Stuff like this would make it very easy to be vegetarian. Very tasty.
Felicia: Very good flavor and decent sized portion. Tasted like a Korean short rib, but the texture is more like meatloaf (which makes sense based on it being Impossible meat). Solid option.
Allyson: A decent size portion and makes a good meal. This continues to be one of my favorite dishes at the festival.

Chocolate Cake

Chocolate Cake with whipped cassis mousse, raspberry gelato, and fresh raspberries. This is a new 2022 festival item.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Pretty presentation, love the raspberry flavors in multiple forms.
Heather: I really like how light this cake is. And, it’s a decent size.
Felicia: This was tasty. The cake was moist and the raspberry flavor wasn’t overwhelming. The gelato melts quickly, though.
Allyson: This has good flavor but not too rich or chocolatey, which I prefer. It’s a nice and light dessert.

I (Allyson) may be biased as a vegetarian, but these are some of the best menu items at the festival.

Refreshment Outpost (Between China and Germany)

refreshment ouptost

While not all of us are fans of paying $4.75 for a pineapple skewer covered in tajin seasoning (sorry, Felicia), the beverages here with alcohol are a different story.

refreshment outpost flower and garden menu

You get a full-sized glass (and then some) for $10.75. That’s not bad in the world of Disney.

The cider and the blonde ale were the standouts for many of us.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Big portion, delicious, refreshing. Yum.
Heather: A great cider. The blueberry really helps to tame the sweet.
Felicia: Super tart and light. Fine for a cider (which I don’t really care for). The blueberry flavor is a bit artificial tasting and reminds me of Tums. But giving it 3 out of 5 because feel like others may appreciate it.
Allyson: This is so good and refreshing. I want to drink this at all times on a hot day.

Orlando Brewing Passionate Organic Blonde Ale with Passion Fruit

A Passionate Organic Blonde Ale with Passion Fruit brewed by Orlando Brewing in Orlando, Florida.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light, big portion, refreshing
Heather: Love this one, too. Honestly-I’d order any of the 3 beverage options here again.
Felicia: Really liked this. Refreshing and not too fruity. The passion fruit flavor is present but muted. Think it’s great.
Allyson: Not my favorite blonde ale. Has a weird flavor and wish the passion fruit came through more.

FYI: Refreshment Outpost is a year-round dining location, but it always features exclusive festival menu items, in addition to its original menu.

Refreshment Port (Near Port of Entry)

refreshment port

This year, Refreshment Port is serving a plant-based “poutine” (the same one they did in 2021) and 2 worthy beverages.

First, the House-made Italian Sausage and Peppers Poutine is plant-based. For $9.00, you get a lot and it’s a solid plant-based offering.

refreshment port flower and garden menu

There’s also the Lavender Martini for $11.00 and the Salted Cucumber Apple Hard Cider for $10.75.

Alcoholic beverages at Disney will always be expensive, but these 2 festival choices are priced well for what you get.

Now, they may not agree with everyone’s palates, but many of us were pleasantly surprised by both.

House-made Italian Sausage and Peppers Poutine 

Plant-based House-made Italian Sausage and Peppers Poutine.

Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Mushy texture and bland flavors. Love that it’s plant based but didn’t love eating it.
Heather: It tastes like the queso you make for the super bowl on top of fries which is a yummy thing. Less poutine-y and more of a “I’ve been drinking” kind of food.
Felicia: Probably good if you need or want a plant based item, but I didn’t like it. Same weird seasoning/flavor as the sausage and kale soup at Trowel and Trellis. Would stick to regular poutine here if you can.
Allyson: Amazing. The best plant based option at the festival. I will eat it over and over and over again.

Stem Ciders A Salted Cucumber Apple Hard Cider

Heather: Too many flavors. Cucumber definitely hits first.
Felicia: Loved the cucumber and salt flavor but the end has a bit of a funk to it. It’s refreshing and tart though.
Allyson: A nice and light refreshing cider. Love the cucumber flavor.

Lavender Martini

A Lavender Martini made with Vodka with Lavender and Lemon.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Not a great balance of sweet and sour. Light. Good portion.
Heather: I found this to be a delight. Sipping this makes me feel like the main character in a highlands romance.
Felicia: Lot of artificial lemon flavor and rather sweet but I didn’t hate it. Neither the lavender nor the vodka were overpowering.
Allyson: Pleasantly surprised by this. Love the flavors and the lavender isn’t overpowering.
