*This dining experience took place in October 2015.
Beaches & Cream Soda Shop reminds me a classic 50’s soda shop, complete with burgers, fries, fun atmosphere, and, of course, sundaes! This table service location is bright and cheerful and so much fun. Just wait until you see a group of guests order what’s known as the
Kitchen Sink. It’s pretty impressive.
Located at Disney’s Beach Club Resort, you’ll find Beaches & Cream Soda Shop tucked away by the resort’s pool area. It does now take reservations, which I highly recommend. The restaurant is pretty small, and if you have your heart set on a sundae or a meal, you’ll want to get your spot! They do also have a to-go counter (which gets pretty busy) for those on the go!
One of my favorite sundaes at Beaches & Cream is the No Way Jose Sundae (which you can read more about in my previous blog posts). Topped with chocolate syrup and a rich peanut butter sauce, there’s no way you’re saying “no way” to the No Way Jose!
On this visit, I knew I still wanted the No Way Jose Sundae, and the manager came out to go over the options with me. Beaches & Cream is one of the few table service locations in which only a manager comes to talk to you, not a chef. But don’t worry, they are great at handling orders safely.
For the No Way Jose, I received both vanilla and chocolate Tofutti (they also carry Rice Dream vanilla non-dairy ice cream), Hershey’s chocolate syrup, peanut butter sauce, and a cherry on top. Beaches & Cream does have other various safe toppings for you to order depending on what sundae you get.
Though I’m often tempted to try other sundaes (like a banana split), I can’t help but order the No Way Jose. It’s rich and decadent, and just the perfect combination of chocolate and peanut butter. It’s also a huge portion, so be prepared to be very full when you’re done!
Though I didn’t get lunch, you can find lunch and dinner options at Beaches & Cream Soda Shop. Check out the menus page for more information about their lunch and dinner options.
You can also read reviews from Alexis at Gluten Free in Orlando on her blog about Beaches & Cream Soda Shop.
Overall, Beaches & Cream continues to be a must stop for me when it comes to non-dairy ice cream sundaes. The gluten free and dairy free version of the No Way Jose sundae continues to be a favorite of mine and something I’ll be getting this summer as the Florida weather continues to warm up!
