France Pavilion : Parisian Breakfast
Bubble away with mimosas, tuck into just-baked baguettes, rich brioches and golden croissants. Sip away at unlimited coffee-make it "au lait!" - or enjoy tea, steaming cups of chocolate chaud (French-style hot chocolate) and orange juice too. At this chic buffet, the hand-shaped baguettes have been made from scratch. Try them fresh from the oven with butter and Bonne Maman confiture (fruit preserve) - it's what the French call a tar tine. In the mood for something savory? Find flavorful meats and cheeses that are a must-do. Pain au Chocolat? Slice of brie? Just say "Qui!" Why not try a little of everything? This may be the most delicious French breakfast on this side of the Atlantic! (Copy provided by Disney.)
