I may be one of the few people that have consistently had pretty good experiences at Tony's but I have to admit that I keep going back for the pistachio crème brulee! Oh so good.

My DD has ordered the shrimp scampi the last couple of times that we have been there.

Sounds like the perfect spot to dine and watch MSEP.

Day Three -- Breakfast

One of my favorite breakfast spots from last trip was a bit unexpected! I knew right away that I needed to go back!

So off we were to The Wave at The Contemporary this morning!

Since our plan was to "drink around the world" throughout the day, we knew that a solid breakfast was needed.

I really had wanted to try the buffet (I'm a girl that usually likes to sample!) but what I was really after was some eggs benedict, because last time, the hollondaise sauce really knocked my socks off.

They sent a chef out for us, and we explained that we were pretty comfortable with what to avoid (sadly no grits for us, they were loaded with bacon.) I mentioned that I had really wanted the buffet to sample a few things, but that what I wanted most was some eggs benedict without the ham (like a wierdo.) Really, I would have been happy with a glass of that hollondaise for breakfast.

The chef (I REALLY wish I had gotten his name!) very kindly offered to make me some eggs on an english muffin with the sauce, or he said he could make me a smoked salmon eggs benedict and he said he would bring out my special order and I could still enjoy the buffet.

With that in mind, we both ended up getting the buffet.



My first plate consisted of (clockwise from top left) fresh pineapple, which was incredibly fresh, a sticky bun, emphasis on the sticky and it was equally delicious, sweet potato pancakes with honey pecan butter, they are like a pumpkin pie in a pancake form and are one of my favorites, and some smoked salmon and hard boiled egg.



Megan was feeling the need for some healthy food this morning and went with some fruit and veg and a small pastry.

After a few minutes, my masterpiece finally arrived...



The eggs were cooked perfectly, the salmon was nice and chilled still, and the hollondaise was perfection. The muffin was also cut SUPER thin, not at all like the thick, dense ones I find in the store. It was amazing and left me feeling not overly full. I resisted the urge to lick my plate!

For a little additional protein, I also ordered this as my beverage...



Mega-Berry Smoothie - Raspberry Puree and Nonfat Yogurt blended with Odwalla Berries GoMega (an excellent source of Omega-3) $4.99

It was delicious!

All in all, a GREAT meal here. The food was all hot and fresh, and the place is mostly deserted!

I may have to find a day to have breakfast here for my DD19 and my DM. They both LOVE eggs benedict! The fruit looks delish and there is nothing like a FL strawberry IMO. Thanks for another great review

Your Tonys meal looks so good. A friend of mine was just telling me the other day that they love Tonys. It's never been on my radar.

The Wave is on my list for a trip without the kids. Have no idea when that would be, but I want to try those sweet potato pancakes.

It definitely helped us out to have a good base!

You will love it, but I agree, not a great place for kids with no characters and more 'adult' options on the menu.

Drinks Around The World (Part 1)

After we had a pretty solid breakfast it was time to embark on our drinking adventure. Before we get started, we split everything that we had, with the exception of our margaritas at dinner. We drank plenty of water, and took a good two hour break at lunch. Overall we had a pretty good day, but thankfully it wasn't too hot and splitting everything would have been the only way we could have done this...

I had been dying for another margarita from La Cava, pretty much since I got off the plane from our last trip.

For that reason, we decided we would start our drink tour on the left side of Epcot. We made our way into the Mexico pavilion, with a little extra pep in our step, and then DISASTER. We found out that La Cava does not open until noon.

This resulted in this reaction from me...



Thankfully, we would be back in Mexico later tonight at La Hacienda.

We made our way to Norway and stopped in the bakery where we found our first beverage....



They called this "Viking Coffee" which was coffee, a generic brand of Kahlua, and I believe Bailey's. It was delicious!

Next up was China, where we enjoyed a Peach Snap...



Then it was time to head to Germany, where it felt only natural that we went with a Riesling...



And before lunch we had time for one more stop in Italy, for the delightful Rosa Regale...



We had just enough time after we finished the Rosa Regale to make it back to Coral Reef for our lunch ADR.

There's was very good! I loved that they made me some special with the smoked salmon instead of the ham. The hollondaise sauce was definitely the star of the show!
