Tangierine Cafe - Epcot

We enjoy all three of the restaurants in the Morocco Pavilion at Epcot - Tangierine Cafe, Spice Road Table, and Restaurant Marrakesh.  

Tangierine Cafe, a quick service restaurant, has always been one of my family's favorite lunch spots at Epcot. 

The cast members that work at Tangierine Cafe are always very knowledgeable about gluten free options.

I always order the Shawarma Platter with chicken.  It is usually served with  hummus, tabouleh, Tangierine couscous salad, and fresh Moroccan bread.  

The tabouleh and the Tangierine couscous salad contain gluten, but they let you substitute marinated olives and lentil salad.  I usually just get chicken,  a double portion of hummus, and lentil salad with my Shawarma Platter, because I am not a huge fan of most olives.  Tangierine Cafe does have gluten free bread, which is typically an Ener-G bun, but I usually skip it or get Moroccan bread on the side for my gluten eating family to enjoy.

The chicken at Tangierine Cafe is tender and flavorful, and I love to eat it dipped in my hummus.  The hummus is nice and smooth, and is as tasty as the chicken and lentil salad.  I always enjoy my meal at Tangierine Cafe, and the food is certainly plentiful for the price.  We love to eat outside and enjoy some shade under the umbrellas.

March 9, 2015 Update 

Gluten Free Disney Dining has heard from several app users that the chicken platter at Tangierine Cafe is no longer gluten free.  It appears that only the Moroccan Kefta Sandwich is gluten free, but they are no longer carrying gluten free rolls.

You can view Tangierine Cafe's menu here on Disney's website.

What are your favorite gluten free options at Tangierine Cafe?


  1. I tried to go here this past Saturday only to find out they now have gluten in almost everything. Including the chicken shawarma. :( We ended up across the street at the Spice Road Table and had a wonderful lunch! So everything worked out fine.
