"Oh, it's a jolly holiday with Mary
No wonder that it's Mary that we love!
Now then what'd be nice
We'll start with raspberry ice
And then some cakes and tea
Order what you will
There'll be no bill

That’s right, Disney drew inspiration from a tiny part of a movie made almost 50 years ago to create a brand new themed restaurant: the Jolly Holiday Bakery Café! Is it a bakery? Yes. Is it a café? Yes. Is it complimentary? No. WHAT?! Liars!
This place is practically perfect in every way. It fits right into Main Street. It’s hard to imagine that it hasn’t been there since Marry Poppins was the latest and greatest thing to come out of their production company. This bakery/café is the restaurant we never knew Disneyland was missing.
Designed by my friend’s mother (yeah, I know people), the Mary Poppins inspired restaurant is simple, adorable, and full of great details that subtly contribute to the ambiance. PENGUIN. STAINED. GLASS.
|It looks just like the REAL fake Matterhorn!|
It’s another stand-in-line-then-order-then-take food-with-you-to-table-style establishments. But, while one stands in line, one can look at the glistening case full of special sweets that are only available here. Matterhorn Macaroon? Yeah, okay!
It’s a basic café menu: Soups, Salads, & Sandwiches. But, new to Disneyland is this restaurant's seasonal menu. Some of the items will be year round, but others will rotate through.
Unfortunately, it is still theme park food. But, with a spoon full of sugar…
