Universal Orlando has announced that the Today Cafe will be opening this Spring.
Based off the popular morning show, The Today Show, the cafe is set to replace the Beverly Hills Boulangerie – which closed earlier this year.
Inspired by the studio where the show is filmed, fans from all over the world will be able to enjoy a one-of-a-kind themed experience that will feel like stepping right into a live news broadcast inside Studio 1A in the Rockefeller Center.
The menu will feature seasonal dishes inspired by co-anchor Al Roker’s favorite recipes. Every day menu options will 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 will offer specialty breakfast options like avocado toast and an organic acai bowl to New York-inspired sandwiches and salads. Top 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 Kathie Lee and Hoda’s hour of TODAY, guests can enjoy wine and beer on tap with a delicious cheese platter for two.
Guests can also enter the Today Cafe Flyaway sweepstakes to attend the Grand Opening of the Cafe, which includes a Today Show taping of the opening, in May.
