Tangierine Café Menu and Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

Tangierine Café Menu and Review (2023 Epcot Food & Wine Festival)

We think it’s safe to assume that Tangierine Café (official name Tangierine Café: Flavors of the Medina) is now a year-round festival booth.

While this used to be a Quick Service location in the Morocco pavilion, Tangierine Café continues to sell exclusive festival menu items.

This year, along with several other locations (like Refreshment Port and Refreshment Outpost), it was even labeled as a “Year-Round Location” with festival offerings.

There’s no denying that Tangierine Café used to be a great Quick Service restaurant, but we also don’t hate it as a festival stop. It never fails to serve up some amazing food and drinks.

We’re happy to report that during this year’s Epcot Food and Wine Festival, Tangierine Café once again hit it out of the park.

Believe it or not, but we only spent $48.75 here — for 2 kabobs, one falafel wrap, some bread with 3 dips, a pistachio cake, a cider flight, and a fig cocktail.

This is one location where you certainly get your bang for your buck. Plus, the food is seriously good. If you should avoid anything here it’s the Fig Cocktail. While they’ve had this in the past, the 2023 version is different. The cocktail isn’t served with fresh figs and is much too sweet. We hope they bring back the original next year.

What also makes Tangierine Café nice is the many indoor and outdoor tables and chairs provided for guests. It’s an overall solid festival location.

Now, let’s chat the Tangierine Café booth, including reviews, photos, and our must-trys.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Light and delicious.
Heather: Best out of the flight! Really solid cider. Extremely refreshing and perfectly balanced between sweet and tart.
Felicia: More tart than the other ciders at the festival, but overall tastes like sweet apple juice… just like every cider tastes like to me. Don’t recommend to those that don’t like apple.

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Loved this. Pretty presentation, nice size, good balance of juice and alcohol.
