*This dining experience took place in February 2015.
Olivia’s at Disney’s Old Key West Resort is one of those restaurants that I find myself frequenting quite a bit. I’ve probably mentioned it a million times but I love the relaxed vibe and Key West theme that the restaurant and the resort offer guests. There’s just something so chill about it.
One of my recent staples for breakfast at Olivia’s is the Sweet Potato Hash with Poached Eggs. It normally comes with hollandaise sauce, but since that contains dairy, I get the hash sans sauce. Which is actually OK because it’s super delicious even without the sauce.
On this particular visit, I didn’t branch out and try anything new. In fact, I was looking forward to the hash and some hot tea. My visit came directly after the Princess Half Marathon 5K race, which my mom ran (yay, mom!) but was absolutely frigid in terms of temperature for Florida. Yes, the Frozen 5K theme definitely transferred over to the weather — it was a balmy 33 degrees. In Florida terms, that is FREEZING!
Thankfully, when we arrived I was able to get some hot tea pronto. I love getting my own little tea pot to enjoy. Often table service locations will only bring you one tea bag but multiple pots of hot water. Thankfully, Olivia’s kindly gave me fresh tea bags with every new pot of hot water…and on this visit, there were plenty of pots!
The chef who assisted me did a great job with my hash. The eggs were well poached (important, as I always enjoy a good poached egg with a runny yolk) and the toast was well toasted. They also had Earth Balance Vegan Margarine on hand (not the soy free version) for the toast.
Overall, this was another delicious breakfast at Olivia’s. Next time I might branch out and try something different on the menu, but I always have my go-to sweet potato hash as a breakfast staple in my visits to Olivia’s.
