Connections Café & Eatery Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Connections Café & Eatery Menu & Review (2024 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

Connections Café and Connections Eatery aren’t your typical Flower and Garden booths.

They are two permanent Quick Service spots that you can find in World Celebration. The Café is Epcot’s Starbucks location, while the Eatery sells a range of food and drinks perfect for lunch and dinner.

But, just like at every other Epcot festival, during Flower and Garden there are exclusive festival menu items sold at each restaurant.

All items from Connections Eatery Flower and Garden menu 2024

Keep in mind that the line at the Café can get very long, since this is Epcot’s only Starbucks location. So if you want that waffle, you will have to wait – even though, spoiler, it’s not worth it.

The Eatery also has Mobile Order. You can sometimes also hop in line and order before the location officially opens at 11 a.m., which you may want to do since it can get very busy here during lunch and dinner hours.

Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich

Southern-fried chicken sandwich with hot honey and pickles on a brioche bun.

Hot Honey Chicken Sandwich 2024
  • Price: $12.49
  • Special Diets: N/A
  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love the hot honey on a fairly traditional fried chicken sandwich.
Heather: I am not a fan of chicken sandwiches (it’s a texture thing) but this one is so darn juicy and delicious. I wish this were a year-round option! The hot honey was definitely there, but it wasn’t overpowering. This might be the first festival item at Connections I’ve actually enjoyed!
Felicia: Wow, this is delicious. The pickles are fresh and crunchy and the chicken is fried perfectly and juicy. So so good. It’s a whole meal and worth it.

Orange Bird Liege Waffle

A house made waffle made with brioche dough and topped with a white chocolate Orange Bird medallion.

Orange Bird Liege Waffle 2024
  • Price: $4.19
  • Special Diets: Kid-Friendly
  • Rating: 2.7/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Cute but not good. Would stick to the regular liege waffle and skip this festival option.
Heather: Great for a picture but not much else. Too much stuff on this – stick to the plain one unless you love sweet things.
Felicia: It’s alright. The white chocolate is delicious. But it’s not special. Cute, though.

Blood Orange Hibiscus Margarita

A margarita made with Teremana Tequila, hibiscus and blood orange syrup, and orange juice.

Blood Orange Hibiscus Margarita 2024
  • Price: $15.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.3/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Blood orange syrup is very artificially sweet.
Heather: Hi. I’m a margarita fan now. This is very tasty.
Felicia: This is pricey and likely doesn’t have much alcohol, but it’s good and not too sweet. Not fake tasting either.
