The new TODAY Cafe allows guests to experience the Studio 1A Themed Cafe, designed to feel like stepping onto the iconic TODAY show set along with specialty food and beverage options.
The TODAY Cafe replaces the Beverly Hills Boulangerie at Universal Studios Florida which focused on baked goods, coffee and sandwiches. It’s set in an ideal location for those guests who enter the park in the morning and are looking for breakfast, lunch, or a snack to nourish and power them through the day as they start their adventure through Universal Studios.
Every day menu options include fresh, in-house baked pastries, salads, sandwiches and specialty, locally-roasted coffees including a unique blend made exclusively for the TODAY Cafe. Guests can grab items on-the-go, or enjoy their meal any time of the day at seating both inside and outside in an area designed to look like the TODAY Plaza.
The TODAY Cafe also offers specialty breakfast options like avocado toast and an organic acai bowl to New York-inspired sandwiches and salads.
The TODAY Show is America’s number-one morning show and the restaurant venue is totally inspired by the show – complete with stage lighting and vibrant orange theming – as well as top headlines from TODAY’s live broadcast.
The anchors of the show, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Carson Daly, Craig Melvin, Jenna Bush Hager, Sheinelle Jones, Dylan Dreyer, Willie Geist and others, helped to inspire the one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found at Universal Studios Florida.
One of the standout features of the TODAY Cafe menu are the seasonal dishes inspired by co-anchor Al Roker’s favorite recipes.
Al’s Avocado Toast – The first seasonal dish is Al’s Avocado Toast, inspired by the one and only Al Roker! This dish features smashed avocados, cherry tomatoes, artichokes, roasted red onions, tomato aioli, toasted farmhouse white, served with bread & butter pickles.
Top menu highlights include a new twist on a classic Italian sandwich piled high with porchetta, spicy capicola, provolone, roasted tomato, arugula, basil aioli on a crunchy baguette, and an Asian-inspired chicken salad that will combine baby arugula, cabbage, radicchio, shitake mushrooms, daikon sprouts, wasabi cashews and soy peanut vinaigrette. Additionally, in tribute to a long running tradition in the fourth hour of TODAY, guests can enjoy wine and beer on tap with a delicious cheese platter for two.
