REVIEW: There’s a NEW Treat at Les Halles Boulangerie & Patisserie in EPCOT!

It’s been a while since we’ve stopped for a quick snack in EPCOT that wasn’t a festival food offering.

EPCOT’s France Pavilion

While we’ve been trying all the food booths from the Festival of the Arts and envisioning covering our walls with the latest Disney-inspired artwork, we needed to take a moment to stop by one of our favorite snack spots for a quick bite to eat. And we’re sure glad we did!

On a recent trip to EPCOT, we found ourselves strolling through the beautiful France pavilion, and suddenly realized it had been a while since we’d stopped by one of our favorite snack spots! Les Halles Boulangerie Patisserie at EPCOT is almost the very definition of a “hole in the wall” snack shop because it resides right inside the shop at the Beauty and the Beast sing-along exit.

Les Halles

We typically like most items that come from this restaurant, and their “grab and go” style of service really helps keep us moving through the rest of our day at the park. We were browsing the menu a bit when a new offering caught our attention. We spotted a new snack that had been added to the menu, the Patisserie a L’abricot. 

Patisserie a L’abricot

We picked up this little cutie for $4.95 and were instantly chomping at the bit to try it! It’s made of a lightly toasted croissant that has a sweet and buttery inside with a sliced apricot on either side topped with powdered sugar.



This snack really surprised us! There were pros and cons to it. We thought it was fairly straightforward in its presentation. A slice of apricot is lightly baked into each of the toasted croissant’s open sides, giving it a nice fruity flavor. It’s a little tart (as you would expect a ripe apricot to be), but it’s delightful against the soft flaky croissant.

There’s fresh fruit here!

However, there’s nothing inside the rest of the croissant, which was a bit disappointing. We were hoping to get more of the fruit inside the croissant and not just on the ends, but that was not the case. This might explain why it’s priced so well.

Cross section

Overall we enjoyed this as a quick bite to curb our appetite and to keep us going. But be aware that this croissant is not filled with apricot throughout. If that’s what you’re looking for, we would suggest another one of their fruit pastries.
