From the Universal Orlando Resort Blog:
Breakfast has always had a reputation as the most important meal of the day, and maybe even more so when you’re on vacation. It gets you energized for all of the fun activities you’re going to do, while also giving you the opportunity to indulge in delicious food.
Whether you’re staying at one of Universal Orlando’s hotels or looking to come to Universal CityWalk or the parks early, there are plenty of great breakfast spots throughout Universal Orlando Resort. Here are 14 recommendations for a delicious breakfast at Universal Orlando Resort.
Breakfast in Universal Orlando Resort Theme Parks
Universal Studios Florida
Start your day the right way with a hot cup of coffee and fresh pastries from TODAY Cafe. Or choose a heartier option like a breakfast sandwich or an acai bowl. Also offering lunch options, TODAY Cafe is the perfect spot for brunch if you want to work up your appetite by hitting a few rides first.

Before you set out to explore The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley, enjoy a hot breakfast from the Leaky Cauldron. Indulge in authentic British fare like the Traditional Breakfast or an Egg, Leek & Mushroom Pasty. I recommend this as the go-to spot for guests with Early Park Admission.

Universal’s Islands of Adventure
One of my favorite places to have breakfast is in the Three Broomsticks in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Hogsmeade. I love being able to enjoy a plate of pancakes and Pumpkin Juice with a view of Hogwarts first thing in the morning. It feels surreal.

Green Eggs & Ham Cafe
Okay, so not your traditional breakfast item, but you’re on vacation, right? Make Sam I Am proud by grabbing a plate of Green Eggs & Ham Tots.

During the summertime (from May through early Sept.), you can chow down on breakfast pizza, sandwiches, and wraps. Outside of this summertime offering, you can still enjoy a refreshing continental breakfast with fresh pastries and fruits.
