*This dining experience took place in August 2015.
Contempo Cafe, located at Disney’s Contemporary Resort, is the resort’s standard quick service location. While I can’t say I’ve ever been blown away by the food options here, I do love the atmosphere and the fact that I can watch the monorail whiz by as I dine.
On this particular occasion, I stopped by for a quick lunch and was hoping to get something a bit different, or at least, not allergy chicken tenders. After reading the allergy friendly menu ahead of time (thanks to Gluten Free in Orlando), I was hoping to get the Maine Lobster Sandwich.
After speaking with a manager, who confirmed the sandwich was also dairy free, I ordered this along with French fries. The restaurant gives you a pager, so I spent some time taking in the sights while my food was being prepared.
The sandwich itself was fairly pricey, and after eating it, I didn’t think it was worth the money. The sandwich was overly mayonnaised which took away from the fresh taste of the lobster. There was a good amount of lobster in this sandwich, but I preferred some other versions, like the one I had at Raglan Road. Still, it was nice to be able to order a lobster roll.
Overall, I liked my meal well enough at Contempo Cafe. It’s not a location I frequent much, but I’m glad that they have safe options and have expanded their gluten free menu offerings a bit.
