La Isla Fresca Menu & Review (2023 Epcot Flower & Garden Festival)

The La Isla Fresca booth is all about the Caribbean.

In addition to both sweet and savory dishes, you can find some refreshing beverages here. This year, there is a tropical breeze with and without alcohol.

Once again, the booth features the plant-based Coconut Tres Leches dessert and a Key Lime Ale. Just like last year, we really loved these two items.

But, really, La Isla Fresca is a top-notch booth and one you shouldn’t sleep on. It is that good.

Typically, this booth sees long lines, so be prepared to wait.

You will also find a special breakfast menu served here daily starting at 9 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to test the Breakfast Empanada or the Dulce de Leche Cocoa Coffee.

Be sure to check our 2023 La Isla Fresca must-trys, photos, full reviews, and ratings for all of the other menu offerings below.


Location: Between France and Morocco
Nearby booths: Tangerine Café: Flavors of the Medina, Fleur de Lys
Nearby seating areas: There are outdoor tables by the booth, standing tables nearby, and many outdoor tables in Morocco
Not to miss: A solid booth overall, but all of the food and the Islamorada Beer Company Coconut Key Lime Ale are the true standouts.

Coconut Tres Leches La Isla Fresca
  • Price: $4.75
  • 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!

Tropical Breeze

The Tropical Breeze is non-alcoholic and made with lemonade, grapefruit and simple syrup.

Tropical Breeze La Isla Fresca
  • Price: $4.50
  • Made with alcohol? No
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Refreshing but syrupy sweet.
Heather: I love grapefruit so this tastes delicious! So tart, though.
Felicia: Loved this. The grapefruit is a bit strong and bitter but I like the flavor. It’s not super sweet and it’s cold and refreshing.
Allyson: Super refreshing and great flavor. Couldn’t really tell the difference between this and the one with alcohol.

Islamorada Beer Company Coconut Key Lime Ale

This Coconut Key Lime Ale is brewed by the Islamorada Beer Company in Islamorada, Florida.

Key Lime Beer La Isla Fresca
  • Price: $5.50 (6 oz.) / $9.50 (12 oz.)

  • Rating: 5.0/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Love love love the coconut lime combo. Refreshing. Delicious.
Heather: I absolutely love this beer. So refreshing without being too sweet.
Felicia: So good and refreshing. The coconut flavor is definitely there but not super sweet or over powering. Nice light lime taste. Easy to drink, not too heavy. Would love a full size of it.
Allyson: Really enjoyed this. The key lime really came through.

Tropical Perception White Sangria

This Tropical Perception White Sangria is made by Florida Orange Groves Winery in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Tropical Sangria La Isla Fresca
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 2.8/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Sweet and small. Didn’t love.
Heather: Delicious white sangria. A bit heavy on the “sweet” to be too refreshing, but very good flavors.
Felicia: This is very sweet, but if you like tropical flavors and white wine this could be a good option for you.
Allyson: Good flavor, but also on the sweeter side. Not outstanding.

Tropical Breeze with Don Q Límon Rum

This Tropical Breeze is made with Don Q Límon Rum, lemonade, grapefruit and simple syrup.

Tropical Breeze With Rum La Isla Fresca
  • Price: $11.00
  • Made with alcohol? Yes
  • Rating: 3.5/5

Our Thoughts

Shannon: Tastes same as non-alcoholic version.
Heather: Love the freshness of the flavor here. Very tart, so it’s not great with the chorizo-but solo it is a win.
Felicia: Good with and without alcohol. Rum works well with this and it’s still refreshing. Loved it.
Allyson: Super refreshing and great flavor. Couldn’t really tell the difference between this and the one without alcohol.
