Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie (QS) (Snacks)
Epcot | World Showcase | France Pavilion
Walt Disney World, Florida
Up until 2012, the Boulangerie Patisserie used to be tucked into a side alley in the France Pavillion. A narrow rectangular building with refrigerated cases on either side of the room, and tables for two or three just outside the doors. Always bustling and packed, patrons would file through the center corridor having to quickly select their treats to make room for the crowds squeezing in behind.
Expansion plans were more out of necessity than imagination. Now connected to the French shopping plaza the Boulangerie Patisserie takes up a space five times as big as it once was. More treats, delicacies, cakes, and sandwiches fill the cases than ever before. Come here for a meal or a snack, there is plenty to enjoy!
This is one of our favorite stops at Walt Disney World! In a former life I used to be a baking blogger, and still love to get messy in the kitchen every chance I get. Coming to the Boulangerie (or any bakery) is research! We always fill out baskets full of treats, and savor every single bite. Gabriel prefers more savory pastries, while I always go for the sweet; this place has the best of both!
Family Hint: This is not a great place for take out. If you’re going to stop, eat it there. There are great viewing spots just outside the Boulangerie Patisserie for the World of Color, so pick up a treat and enjoy the show!
► For Kids: The pretty colors and fanciful desserts will delight children of all ages. This is a great use of your snack credit option, letting the kids go crazy with whatever very special treat they desire!

► Nap-Time Version: The Boulangerie Patisserie is the very best bakery in all of Walt Disney World. Make sure to stop when you’re at Epcot.
