Disney Dining Review: Breakfast at Steakhouse 71

Disney Dining Review: Breakfast at Steakhouse 71 steakhouse71-contemp-wdw

It’s been a while since the team enjoyed breakfast at Steakhouse 71 at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. With the restaurant being just steps away from the Magic Kingdom, we felt like the time was right to check it out again. Reservations are highly recommended as this location can fill up quickly, but on occasion, guests are able to walk right in or even join the walk-up waiting list, depending on availability.

Steakhouse 71 is located in the back corner of the resort after you walk by the front desk(s). It is also in very convenient proximity to the monorail, making heading to the theme parks easy after you’re finished eating. This is an excellent option if your family isn’t interested in Character Dining at Chef Mickey’s, but wants to start their day with a delicious meal in a great location. Let’s see how things turned out!

For his entree, he opted for Eggs Benedict, priced at $17, praising the perfectly poached eggs and well-cooked breakfast potatoes. Added sriracha elevated the dish.

Seasonal Gingerbread Pancakes at $15 with sausage on the side impressed Ryno; the gingerbread flavor was prominent, and he suggested a slight adjustment in presentation with regard to the icing drizzle.

Ryno and Hannah both praised the value of the $20 refillable Mimosa, mentioning its generous serving and quality, making it a great Disney breakfast option. Steakhouse 71’s mimosa contains Los Dos Cava Brut Sparkling Wine and Orange Juice. They also mentioned that they never had to ask for the cocktail to be refilled as the server stayed on top of keeping the glass full.
