You can visit the Islands of Adventure and Universal Studios if you spend a day at the Universal Orlando Resort, enjoy an action-packed experience full of exciting tours and themes.
Many of these parks offer excellent dining options, including Hogsmeade Village and Diagon Lane. But it’s worth trying out Universal CityWalk restaurants, too. After all, Universal Orlando CityWalk is a trendy city center, the perfect location for a park break or a ride.

Bread Box Handcrafted Sandwiches
The bread box is located in the former home of Cigars (don’t worry, there’s no lasting smell of smoke) in CityWalk on the second floor. Bread Box aims to fill the gap sandwich in CityWalk as Earl of Sandwich in Downtown Disney has become a restaurant destination. The Bread Box says that visitors are taken back to their children’s kitchens or your favorite street corner with good quality produce, fruit, fresh bread, and basic ingredients.
It sounds amazing, and the menu offers a wide variety of grilled cheeses (from bacon to pastrami to smoked brisket) as well as homemade soups and various fresh sandwiches. So you can’t argue for Twinkies so Nutella chocolate milkshakes.
The dilemma is that while we’ve sampled everything in the Bread Box, especially in contrast to its respectable rivalry, you don’t know how shockingly overpriced they are. Half a foot long $8 is just going to get you here and even freshly baked, delicious potato chips are not included. If you want a nice, tasty snack and you can apply the price to your dinner, try one of the cheese-grilled creations, but save money later.
BK Whopper Bar
You may have grown up in another form of a house, but the BK bacon doublecheese burger is “comfortable food” for us. Try to call us old-fashioned, but the fries haven’t been the same since 1998. Since the menu is so familiar, long lines can be formed at lunchtime. There’s no list of values, but you’re having a double topper with a special topping (such as blue cheese or furious onions) and “tiny,” fries and drinks being the size of a medium elsewhere. The price is considerably higher than your local drive.
The same cinnamon sugar goodness provided by IOA can also be found on the way to and from CityWalk parks. This is usually the first place to open an early bird meal every morning, much like the Starbucks on the corner.
Cold Stone Creamery
Using only the finest ingredients, Cold Stone Creamery has made its name by preparing your ice cream creation in front of your eyes on a frozen granite slab. With a large selection of ice creams-and even larger choices of blend-ins-the possibilities seem almost endless. Cold Stone also uses a unique way to describe sizes such as “Mine” (16 oz.), “Ours” (32 oz.) and “Everybody” (480 oz.). This location is very popular with outgoing guests and often sees a long line when the parks close.
Fusion Bistro Sushi & Sake Bar
This top-level CityWalk restaurant is owned by Sushi House, with additional offices in Atlanta and Florida Mall in Orlando. The unique sushi preparations of the Bistro Fusion Bistro combine traditional Japanese with aromas and spices throughout East Asia and the Pacific Rim.
There’s no cheap sushi, but it’s faster and easier than the Cowfish, and you can fix it for hours to come. Price is cut through local stores, but because it’s all made from relatively pedestrian seafood–tuna, salmon, tilapia, college, shrimp snobs, etc. The $4.99 bento set adds miso soup to every item and adds salad, sea herbs, rice to every other item. The spicy rolls are right.
Hot Dog Hall of Fame
The Hot Dog Hall of Fame is a tribute to Steve Schussler’s famous food baseball park, the creative force behind the Rainforest Cafe and T-REX. The Hot Dog Hall of Fame is the ultimate home for baseball lovers and foodies from Wisconsin’s mustard bar, curated by the National Mustard Museum, to world-famous ballpark dogs such as the Dixie Dog and the Dirty Water-Dog. The venue has large screen TVs and bleachers for those who want to play the game. Bleacher seats come as an added benefit from the actual MLB ballparks. As they say, “We spared no cost,” John Hammond of Jurassic Park!
The sausages, the buns and the topping are all genuine and well made, but since all dogs cost the same, the value can vary depending on the choice. The New York Sabrett sounds pretty high for $7, except for Kansas City (pulled pork and coleslaw) and Milwaukee for the dollar. And if you want to share, there’s a two-foot dog that’s only less than twice the size. The price is shown primarily to the puppies; homemade cold cuts or chips cost extra, as are snack peanuts and cracker jacks.
Lone Palm Airport
The Tiki Bar is located opposite Margaritaville, Lone Palm Airport. Lone Palm Airport is also home to Jimmy Buffet’s Dancer Seaplane Hemisphere, a great place to enjoy your food and snacks. The Lone Palm is the perfect place to sit back with a cold drink and enjoy the Parakeet Beach atmosphere.
Menchie’s Frozen Yogurt
Menchie’s is a self-made yogurt store that allows visitors to sit in a diabetic coma with endless toppings. Hey, you get fresh fruit for those who want to stay safe, but there are a few more candies to put on top of your yogurt, including Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Kit Kats, Gummi Bears, Cap’n Crunch, and Twix. Menchie’s milk comes from California, even as Via Napoli imports its waters from Pennsylvania. How is this going to happen? How is this going to happen? But this cartoon says it’s better for you, we’re not sure about it. Science Schmience, you put some oreo cookies in milk yogurt that might come from Mars as well.
Perhaps most notably, the Dole Pineapple, also known to Disney fans as the Dole Whip, is one of the flavors of Menchie’s daily rotation. One of the few locations outside Adventureland where the flavor is developed is present and the only place where rosé-frozen animal crackers and marshmallow sauce can be topped.
Menchie’s is located in the former home of Katie’s Candy Co, between the first and second floors of CityWalk, next to the Bread Box. The price, isn’t it? The price, huh? Get a cup of waffles (or a cup of $0.59 per ounce) and pay as much as you want.
Moe’s Southwest Grill
The branch, Moe’s, is a Mexican food equivalent to a subway sandwich shop. You place your order (e.g. steak tacos) at the front of a long assembly line, so you push your plate down the line as it moves from the worker to the worker.
We like Moe a little, and when it’s just a little funny, the whole assembly line thing is perfect. For example, what is his job title in the middle of the planning process? Guacamole’s Midway in Place Cilantro? This menu also includes information on TV shows and films, including Art Vandalay (Seinfeld), Billy Barou (Caddyshack) and John Coctostan (Fletch).
Panda Express Gourmet Chinese Food
The kung pao chicken has a darker, smokier flavor than most of us have tried, and the sauces are heavier than our local Chinese recipes. Still, Panda Express is a hit with our group of kids who want to eat here every time they see it. In general, Panda Express has the longest line of three fast-food joints on CityWalk’s upper level.
Red Oven Pizza Bakery
Red Oven Pizza Bakery is a Universal reaction to high-quality pizza brought to Via Napoli, the Epcot theme park in the world. Like the main dining room of Via Napoli, only whole pieces in the Red Oven, not slices, can be ordered. However, two people can eat cheap food at a decent price of only $12-$14 per pizza. In the form of San Marzano tomatoes, organic extra virgin olive oil, buffalo mozzarella, and fine grain00′ meal and filtered water, five white and five red Napolitan-style pies are made, then baked at 900 ° F oven while you are watching. Free refills of soda are available for salads and a small range of beer and wine.
The server will take your seat and ship your order as soon as it is ready after you place your food order and get your drinks. There are plenty of outdoor seating areas, the welcome Florida sunshine (and rain) relief. Red Oven is a great place to get a dick to eat and watch because of its position in the main hub of CityWalk. The bars of the CityWalk River can also be supplied with Red Oven Pizza.
We were initially doubtful when it came to trying coffee. First of all, none of us heard of this place (it’s a chain). And what does the Seattle corporation learn about coffee, thousands of miles away from the nearest paddle of beans?
Well, it turns out to be a good deal. Including hats, tartar bucks and espresso with pastries, teas and a mixture of frozen drinks, Starbucks provides everything you need. Some people might say it’s a darker roast than most people do. However, the flavors were consistent every time we visited (as was the service, mainly by the perky, caffeine-aged staff). These kids are going to do a job.
Starbucks moved from the top of CityWalk to Cold Stone Creamery in early 2014 and is now on the field. While Starbucks ‘ entire chain sandwich menu is located inside the Adventure Islands, this particular Starbucks offers a more limited range of baggage items but offers several seats both inside and outside, including free WiFi and available power ports. Although this beautifully built coffee shop has far more barista power than the typical franchise, its central location is close to the opening of the park.
Voodoo Doughnut made her debut in Florida at Universal CityWalk, West Coast Religion. Look for cake and candies with all kinds of toppings. Bacon Maple Bar and Oh Captain, My Captain, have people (as in “Crunch”) in the morning.
