Want to know what is so great about this restaurant? Read on to learn the top 8 reasons why we love the Plaza Inn Restaurant.
#8: Great Atmosphere
Let’s start with the atmosphere. The decor and overall feel of this eatery is very elegant. In fact, if it weren’t for the fact that you have to carry your food to your table, you might forget this is a quick-service place for lunch and dinner. The upscale, Victorian vibe is just perfect because it encourages you to slow down and enjoy your meal, something you will definitely want to do considering how delicious it will be.
#7: Amazing Chicken
Atmosphere is great, but the real test is the quality of the food. After all, a great-looking lunch spot is no good if the food isn’t tasty. Fortunately, that isn’t a problem at Plaza Inn, where the fried chicken is to die for and actually has a cult-like following.
We should warn you though: No other chicken will taste quite right after taking a bite of Plaza Inn fried chicken. It’s that good.
#6: Huge Portion Sizes
Because this chicken is so good, you will probably want to eat quite a bit of it. Fortunately, this restaurant doesn’t skimp when it comes to portion sizes. In fact, you may even want to share with a friend if you think you can give up any of your tasty poultry. That said, not many people do want to give any up, meaning a plate per person might be your best bet.
#5: Fast Service
As we mentioned before, despite feeling very elegant, Plaza Inn is a quick-service location. This means you can be in and out quickly if you like, making it easy to squeeze a bit of extra fun into your day. Of course, this fact appeals to many people. That said, you may want to linger and soak in the amazing atmosphere in this laid-back eatery.
#4: Delicious Desserts
If you find you somehow still have room after polishing off your chicken and sides, or maybe if you did decide to share after all, you will want to make a point of ordering a dessert. The sweet treats at this location are certainly plentiful, and every single one is as delicious as the last.
Be sure to try the strawberry cake for a sweet ending to a perfect meal.
#3: Character Dining
As if amazing quick-service food during lunch and dinner wasn’t enough, Plaza Inn also serves as a character dining location in the mornings. Not only that, it’s one of the best character dining locations out there. The “Minnie and Friends” breakfast features a huge assortment of characters, including many who are hard to find elsewhere.
#2: Plentiful Breakfast Buffet
As if the plethora of characters at breakfast weren’t enough, the folks at Plaza Inn also go out of their way to make sure there is something for everyone and plenty to go around on the breakfast buffet. Therefore, whether you head to the breakfast table with a sweet tooth or you’re looking for the more savory items, you can rest assured you will find something you love.
#1: Superb Views
Whether you go to Plaza Inn for a character breakfast or a quick-service lunch or dinner, you are sure to appreciate the views. You see, this restaurant is situated in such a way that those who sit close to the rather large windows in the dining area have the perfect view out onto Main Street. This means watching parades from your table is 100% possible, and people-watching at breakfast is a go.
There you have it, the top 8 reasons we love this elegant little cafe on Main Street, U.S.A. Why not give it a try the next time you visit Disneyland and see if you love it as much as we do? We bet you’ll fall in love!
