Lamplight Lounge now offers a brunch menu available from 9am to 1pm. Their brunch menu includes a variety of delicious options such as the “Crab and Potato Cake Benedict” with poached eggs, crab, and hollandaise on an English muffin, and the “Brunch Burger” with a beef patty, American cheese, roasted green chilis, and a sunny-side-up egg. Our favorite brunch option is the “Lamplight Chilaquiles” which are housemade chips with red sauce and two sunny-side-up eggs.
This counter-service spot offers a variety of shakes and smoothies including a mango smoothie that’s a great breakfast option. Unfortunately, Schmoozies doesn’t offer breakfast food options so we recommend pairing it with a baked good from Starbucks!
Pym Test Kitchen
One of Pym’s Test Kitchen most popular breakfast items is the “Impossible Quantum Garden Breakfast,” which features plant-based eggs, crispy potato bites, and a side of focaccia toast. This dish is a great option for guests who are looking for a hearty breakfast that’s also vegetarian or vegan.
Another breakfast option at Pym Test Kitchen is the “Ever-Expanding Cinna-Pym Toast,” which is a large piece of toasted cinnamon sugar bread served with a side of compound butter and a small serving of miniature marshmallows. This dish is a fun and indulgent way to start your day, and it’s perfect for sharing with a group.
Located near Goofy’s Sky School, Award Weiners isn’t the most obvious place to get breakfast at California Adventure. While this spot is known for its hot dogs, they also serve up a breakfast corn dog that features a breakfast corn dog (filled with sausage, eggs & fried in pancake batter.) It’s a unique but heavy breakfast option that’s sure to satisfy your cravings!
The Cappuccino Cart is located at the entrance to Pixar Pier. They offer a chorizo breakfast burrito that includes eggs, chorizo (a spicy Mexican sausage), potatoes, and cheese. For Disneyland’s 100 Celebration, they are currently offering a lemon-flavored tea cake. The Cappucino Cart offers coffee options like mochas, lattes, espresso, cold brew, hot tea, and cocoa!
Schwarma Palace is located in Avenger’s Campus and offers “Shuri’s Gauntlet” which is a breakfast shwarma wrap with impossible breakfast sausage. They also offer a plant-based version that is served with spiced maple syrup.
GCH Craftsman Grill
Technically GCH Craftsman Grill isn’t in Disney California Adventure but it is nearby! GCH Craftsman Grill offers breakfast options such as bagel sandwiches, an American egg breakfast, waffles, omelets, scones, croissants, and breakfast flatbreads. Consider mobile ordering and then heading towards the Grand Californian entrance opposite Grizzly Rapids. Take a quick left at the entrance of the hallway to the ticket booths and pick up your food! You can enter the Disney California Adventure park through that same entrance.
