The NEW BoardWalk Deli is Now Open

The beloved Boardwalk Bakery has officially transitioned into the Boardwalk Deli. Don’t worry; they still have plenty of bakery treats that look delicious, but now they have more food options.

I visited the location on its second day of being open because I wanted to grab some lunch and see if it was any good. I ordered the Veggie Crunch Muffuletta, which is made with cured and pickled Root Vegetables, “Cheese,” and Olive-Vegetable Tapenade on Focaccia served with a choice of a side. Now the pickled flavor and the tapenade came in strong, and I did not expect it to be that strong. The second bite was better than the first because I knew what to expect. The bread was the show stopper, though, so fluffy and so good. The “cheese” was good, but I wish it were melted; I know this is supposed to be a cold sandwich, so that’s a no-go. The sandwich price is $10.49, which isn’t bad since it comes with a side. I got the homemade chips as my side, and they were excellent.

The one issue I found was that it took a long while for my food to be ready. I think it was because they had a large number of mobile orders and in-person orders. They did apologize for the wait, and I saw the chef checking in on the cast member frequently, so there could’ve been other issues.

I rate my meal as 7 out of 10. It wasn’t anything out of this world, but it’s a great lunch option when staying at the Boardwalk or leaving EPCOT and making your way to Hollywood Studios. The winner at the deli seems to be the tomato soup, I saw so many people ordering it, and it smelled terrific each time it passed me. The bakery items also look phenomenal; I need the rest of the team to head over there and let me know how everything else is. I will be back to try breakfast since they have a plant-based breakfast item.

I say to give this place a chance and see how you and your travel party feel. Then let us know in the comments if it was a hit or miss.
