Olivia's Cafe Breakfast - Disney's Old Key West Resort

This morning, I had breakfast at Olivia's Cafe at Disney's Old Key West Resort with Jennifer, a fellow celiac.  

After reading my friend Sarah's review of Olivia's Cafe on her blog Gluten-Free & Dairy-Free at WDW, I knew I wanted to order the Poached Eggs and Hash.  

The Poached Eggs and Hash is described as poached eggs served over sweet potato hash, topped with Key West hollandaise, and served with a buttermilk biscuit.  Obviously, the buttermilk biscuit was off limits, so I asked Chef Julie if I could have gluten free Mickey waffles instead.  

I love poached eggs over hash, so I was very excited to try this dish.  The sweet potato hash at Olivia's was very good.  I enjoyed the combination of sweet potatoes, white potatoes, onion, and ham.  Jennifer ordered the same dish that I did, and ate all of her hollandaise, but I enjoyed the combination of eggs and hash without it.  

The gluten free Mickey waffles at Olivia's are made with Bob's Red Mill, which isn't my favorite mix, but they were good.  I prefer when Disney restaurants use a mix of Namaste and Bob's Red Mill, or use Cup4Cup Pancake & Waffle Mix.  You can view my list of my favorite restaurants for Disney-themed waffles here

Olivia's Cafe is open for breakfast until 10:30, then reopens for lunch at 11:30, serving an all-day menu until closing time.  You can read my lunch review of Olivia's here.  We loved their shrimp & grits, and the flourless chocolate cake.
