The Best World Showcase Quick Service

We're changing up our evening at Epcot a bit so that we can make it over to DHS in time for the Fireworks. This means we're canceling our 6:30 Spice Road Table, and instead doing a Food Booth & Quick Service dinner. That brings me to ask you this - What do you think the top 3 Quick Service Restaurants are in World Showcase?

Crazy as it is, we don't often eat at Epcot. We snack around or we are there for F&W.

I like Sunshine Seasons, Tangierine Cafe and Yorkshire County Fish Shop. Of course these are the ones I HAVE been too, but there were no issues and everything we had was great.

Sunshine Season's is ideal as they have tons of options and great deserts!!! Smile Tangierine is wonderful with the Shwarma Platter!!! Just think Avengers, it's the reason we ate there. And you can't go wrong with fish and chips!

I was thinking Tangierine Cafe might be my best option, or possibly Les Halles. However I've never been to Lotus Blossom before so that has potential as well, and I know I love La Cantina. SO many choices!!

Sunshine Seasons
Yorkshire Fish Shop
Katsura Grill (CS in Japan)

As I recall you can order at the hostess stand at Le Cellier...the Cheddar soup is fantastic...can anyone else confirm this? It has been awhile...

My top 3 quick service in Epcot are....

1. Sunshine Seasons (not in world showcase, but in the Land)
This counter service cafeteria in the basement of the Land Pavilion has a great variety of stations to choose from, with good meat and veggie options. I think the gardens of the Land help source the food here... I've always found the flavors to seem very fresh. A yummy desert station as well. One of my favorite lunch spots in Epcot -- The only place I'll eat quick service in this half (future world) of the epcot park. There have been times I've even gotten my meal in "to go" containers and have taken it back to my hotel when I was staying nearby at the dolphin.

In world showcase...
2. The Tangierine Cafe...
If you like Mediterranean food, this is the quick service spot to go... tabbouleh, hummas, and shawarma. The only downside is that there isn't a lot of seating at this spot if you are hitting it at a busy time of day. You will find this restaurant in the Morocco pavilion.

3. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
This is another cafeteria style / counter service restaurant. There are two seeming identical lines (you can go left or right), so it keeps the lines moving pretty well even during busy times of the day. Has soup, salads, and sandwiches. ... but also some lovely pastries and dessert treats.

4. as an aside... if you are just looking for a sweet snack... the Bakery in Norway (Kringla Bakeri Og Kafealso) has some wonderfully tasty treats as well (I just don't remember them having sandwiches or anything - though I could be wrong)

5. also... (it's not counter service or cafeteria style) But I've always had a decent dish at the Rose & Crown Pub in the England Pavilion. It is table service, but I've gotten a table without a reservation. And I seem to remember getting a good pub burger, with a satisfying portion. A relaxing place to sit on the patio and have a pint as well.

Well, if we're talking about World Showcase exclusively, then I would say the top three are:

1. Tangierine Cafe
2. Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie
3. Katsura Grill

And while technically not a restaurant, the big store in Japan pavilion I like because it has a lot of snacks from Japan and other Asian countries. Shrimp flavored chips are my personal favorite!

I think one of these three is what I will end up with, with Tangierine Cafe and Katsura Grill running neck and neck. I think I'll leave that choice up to my traveling companions. It now also looks like heading over to DHS for dinner might be an option for us depending on the crowds.

Darn, I was hopping it was at a quick service! The one in the picture looks pretty lacking on the edible elements. Am I missing something?

That was my thought, especially compared to what the Dawa Bar is (was?) serving up in the mornings.

Not bad, but THIS is a Bloody Mary!! It comes with the Sunday Brunch at Narcoossee's Grand Floridian. It comes with celery, bacon, olives and shrimp!! Love

Another vote for Katsura Grill in Japan. Their Teriyaki Chicken with rice & veggies is so good - filling but not heavy. I ate it several times during my July trip.

if its not food & wine, I choose La Cantina almost exclusively, but now that my beloved Flautas have left the menu, I might have to find a new go-to. I do like the sandwiches at Kringla and Les Halles is decent.

Huge fan of the Norwegian club and school bread found in Norway. It's a must. I also agree that the French bakery is good and tangerine cafe is good and different.
