In France, a “patisserie” is a pastry shop and a “boulangerie” makes bread. Some foodies insist that no one person can be an expert at both, but Disney employs plenty of staff in this kitchen, so you’re well covered with either option here. In 2012, Disney closed the old Boulangerie Patisserie location, ultimately converting it into the L’Artisan des Glaces ice cream parlor. The new version of this counter-service bakery and sandwich shop then moved to the back of the pavilion and opened in 2013. The menu offers a variety of sandwiches, quiches, pastries, tarts, and soups for $4-9.

The food options here are great. The soups, sandwiches, pastries were top-notch, and the selections have all been expanded. There was a certain charm about the old location, cramped though it was. Unfortunately, the new line system needs some tweaking. There's now a central line area, cafeteria style, which splits as you reach the glass cases. So far so good. But the two times I visited, patrons were confused on where to order, when to move down, and how/when to get to the registers to be rung out. Cast members seemed not to notice the backlog of people stacked at the registers, and there was no way to escape the line once you were done. Hopefully, they'll work these kinks out. The food, however, was delicious all around- so even if the line system is a bit cumbersome, it's worth it!
