Cafe Des Cascadeurs

See the current menu here.

My eldest daughter has a real interest in anything American retro so I was thrilled to read about Cafe des Cascadeurs. Research led me to find out that it was an authentic fifties diner that was brought to Europe from America, just outside of New York in the nineties. However, it found itself in The Walt Disney Studios,  in 2002. By this stage, we didn’t really care what they served we just knew we would love to eat there! I had read that it had odd opening times so we didn’t build our hopes up! However, we happened to be there on a day it was opening and, knowing it was tiny, we made our way to join the short queue. We were shown to a booth, complete with checked curtains and slid in.   There are booths on one side, and on the other is the counter and the grill where the chefs were waiting to cook! As ‘cascadeurs’ is French for stuntmen, the walls had a lot of Disney stunt photos, including some of Herbie, which was great to see.

Food

The menu is simple, burgers and chips.  We ordered our burgers and they were happy to accommodate our fussy tastes – a mixture of removing pickles and sauces. I opted for the chicken burger which was delicious, beautifully cooked piece of chicken.  Everyone else in our group ordered the beef burger and I’m sure the children’s burger was the same size.  Service was fast but not rushed. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the surroundings and we would definitely visit again. On the way out,  we noticed that there was a small decking area for al fresco eating but eating inside, whatever the weather, would be our preference.
