The Best Spots to Grab a Quick Service Meal at Epcot

When you're hungry and touring Epcot there's no shortage of amazing and delicious spots to eat whether you're looking for a quick service meal, a snack, or a more relaxed sit down table service location. Even with all the choices you're bound to have a must-stop location, somewhere you just have to stop on ever trip.

To that end we've compiled a list of the top quick service locations in Epcot (based solely on personal preference and, of course, a lot of "research" which is code for eating). There are a couple of honorable mentions on the list too.

6. Sommerfest in Germany Pavilion: One of my favorite things to do in the Germany pavilion is to order a Bratwurst from Sommerfest, the pavilion's quick service location. Sure, it's always fun to buy a bag of fresh caramel corn over at Karamelle-Kuche and snack on it while sitting near the fountain, but sadly caramel corn isn't the best meal option. However, the menu at Sommerfest features several delicious options including Bratwurst, Nudel Gratin, Currywurst, and your standard Frankfurter. Seating is very limited so grab a Brat, a beer, and a bench near the fountain and you're all set.

5. Sunshine Seasons: No matter if you're looking for breakfast, lunch, or dinner you can't go wrong at Sunshine Seasons. I love to stop here for breakfast before tackling Future World (after riding Soarin' of course!). The breakfast platter is enough for two and their baked goods are out-of-this-world. The lunch and dinner menus feature sandwiches, Asian dishes, grilled items, and soups and salads. There's something for every appetite at Sunshine Seasons.

4. Yorkshire County Fish Shop: If you're looking for what is quite possibly the best order of fish and chips at Walt Disney World, stop at the Yorkshire County Fish Shop. This quaint counter service location next to the Rose and Crown serves just fish and chips (and a sugar cookie for dessert). No muss, no fuss. The fish is always hot and crispy and the chips are pretty darn good too. Find an umbrella table near the water and enjoy one of my favorite quick service lunches.

3. La Cantina de San Angel: This counter service in the Mexico pavilion is always buzzing with hungry visitors (and very friendly birds just waiting for a snack). The food is standard Mexican favorites including Tacos de Carne, Empanadas de Queso (my personal favorite!), and Nachos topped with ground beef, black beans, cheese, and jalapenos. Kids can choose from chicken fingers or cheese empanadas. The dessert might be my favorite anywhere: churritos with caramel sauce. The best part is you get a small basket of them with each meal.

2. Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie:
The bakery in the France pavilion is one of the most wonderful spots to stop for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just a snack. I love that they're open for breakfast in case you need a fresh croissant to start the day. My absolute favorite menu item has to be the cheese plate and it's perfect for a light lunch along with a baguette and maybe a Grand Marnier slush. Find a table outside (better for people watching, of course) and pretend that you're in the heart of Paris.

1. Tangierine Cafe: This is probably (definitely!) my absolute favorite quick service location. The menu features shawarma, wraps, and platters in addition to tabouleh, hummus, lentil salad and falafel. Other items include the Moroccan Kefta Sandwich and the Mediterranean Sliders Combo. And for dessert you just have to try the Baklava. When we dine here my husband and I always share the Chicken and Lamb Shawarma Platter and the Vegetarian Platter, it's a perfect way to get a little bit of everything. In addition to the amazing food there's not a bad seat in (or outside) of the restaurant.

Of course there are other great counter service spots around Epcot and I have to give an honorable mention to the Katsura Grill in the Japan pavilion and the Liberty Inn in the American Adventure pavilion.

For me it's La Cantina all the way for Flautas and Churros, but I also really like Kringla in Norway and Les Halles in France.
