Connections Café & Eatery Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Connections Café & Eatery Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Connections Café and Connections Eatery aren’t your typical Food and Wine 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 for lunch and dinner.

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

Food and Wine items weren’t offered here in 2023, but they are this year! The Café and Eatery each have their own festival offerings — a special Remy-inspired liege waffle and a margarita. The margarita is only available at the Eatery.

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 most likely have to wait.

If you want both items, we recommend heading to the Eatery so you can order the waffle and margarita at the same time without having to wait in two lines.

That said, neither of these were outstanding. We don’t recommend wasting your time here. There are so many other booths that have better offerings. Go there instead.

When it comes to our reviews and ratings, we thought it would be helpful if you had a better understanding of our personal preferences (what we like and don’t like), along with if there are any dietary restrictions.

Here’s a breakdown of not only who is doing the reviews, but a little more information about what each of us likes and doesn’t like food and drink-wise.

Shannon (Founder)

  • Likes: Almost everything
  • Dislikes: Beers that taste “stinky,” anything too salty
  • Dietary Restrictions: None

Heather (Editor)

  • Likes: Strong flavors, anything made out of potatoes, white wines, all beers (especially stouts and wheat beers), doesn’t mind sweet (plain fruit is NOT a dessert. Ever.)
  • Dislikes: Things that are too spicy, anything with a bone still in it, cocktails with too much whiskey or tequila (thanks to having too much fun in college), some red wines, most IPAs
  • Dietary Restrictions: Shellfish allergy

Photos & Reviews

Remy Liege Waffle

Connections Liege Waffle
  • Price: $4.19
  • Special Diets: Kid-friendly
  • Rating: 1.7/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: I am just not of fan of these. The cold makes it extra chewy and this one is incredibly sweet. They look cute, but just are a miss for me.
Felicia: Super sweet. Not much flavor aside from sugar and the texture is off putting. It’s soft and chewy but almost in a stale tasting way.
Ally: It has a weird texture and not much flavor. Do not waste your money on this, especially if it’s just for the gram.

Yucatan Sunset Margarita

A margarita made with Teremana Blanco Tequila, passion fruit syrup, Bols Triple Sec 30 proof liqueur, and lime and orange juices.

Connections Yucatan Margarita
  • Price: $15.50
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.0/5

Our Thoughts

Heather: Not a margarita fan (please do not yell at me, I went too hard on them in college) BUT – this is pretty good! Really sweet, though.
Felicia: The flavor of this is great. Can definitely taste the passion fruit and not the alcohol. But it’s too sweet for me. If you like fruity cocktails, this is a solid option.
Allyson: It’s fine. It’s not great. Kind of artificial tasting. There are better cocktails out there.
