Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary

Disney says that new menu items will be coming to the Contempo Café at Disney’s Contemporary Resort on Wednesday, August 16, 2023, and we have a first look at the dishes.


Guests can start their day with two new breakfast items, the savory Breakfast Flatbread or the sweeter Minnie Cinnamon Roll dipped in red-colored white chocolate.

For lunch and dinner, guests have several new options, including an updated version of the classic Four-Cheese Grilled Cheese & Tomato-Basil Soup. The sandwich features aged cheddar, Irish white cheddar, provolone, and shredded Parmesan on griddled Brioche bread, and it’s served with Tomato-Basil Soup. The soup will also be available as a side.

If you like a bit of heat, try the Spicy Chicken Sandwich which features a crispy chicken breast topped with pepper jack, chipotle rémoulade, arugula, seasoned tomato, and dill pickle chips, served on a brioche bun.
