Earl of Sandwich, located in Disney World, Florida, Downtown Disney, Marketplace section.
Date: Saturday, April 7, 2007.
Some times it is just nice to go out and get some fast food, bring it home, open a bottle of wine and just kick back and enjoy the evening. Our tour guide, Janice Edwards, took us to the Earl of Sandwich, a fast food establishment, offering just what the name suggests. The prices are extremely reasonable and the food is fairly good. We took out selections back to our apartment and reheated the items that needed to be warmed up. Here is our review of the food selections we tasted:
Tomato soup, we highly recommend, real smooth and wonderful, slightly rich tomato flavor.
Tuna melt was perfect with Swiss cheese. I can’t believe I am reviewing a tuna melt sandwich, but it was really good!
The Original had in it roast beef, creamy horseradish sauce, and cheddar cheese. It was pretty good but everyone agreed it needed more horseradish.
The Cannonballs consisted of meatballs, marinara, mozzarella and Parmesan cheese was good but the cheese could barely be tasted. Most of these sandwiches are hot and we only sampled just a few of a very large selection.
We went back to this restaurant two more times, once for breakfast and again for sandwiches. For breakfast we found the sandwiches not as good as at McDonald. The coffee was really disappointing here. The Trails End coffee was worth the trip. We have heard reports that a review magazine stated that McDonald’s coffee is very good.
This establishment gets our recommendation for taking selected food back to your resort apartment.
This establishment gets our recommendation for pretty good fast food value because the prices are reasonable.
For breakfast, average ranking. Below average if you are a coffee lover.
Note: We found the coffee at this resort disappointing. Janice Edwards made better coffee back at our apartment. This place needs a Starbucks.
