Celebrate the spirit of Mardi Gras every day of the year at Café Orleans. On a charming shady corner in New Orleans Square, this table-service restaurant serves Creole-inspired cuisine. The authentic food and atmosphere just might make you think you’ve taken a trip to the French Quarter.


Café Orleans serves delicious food with a distinctive New Orleans flair for lunch and dinner, and seasonally for breakfast. Menu items range from shrimp salad and gumbo to crepes and the restaurant’s famous Monte Cristo sandwiches. Special menu items for the kids include a peanut butter and jelly version of the Monte Cristo. The signature Mickey-shaped beignets are great for dessert or an afternoon snack.

Monte Cristo Sandwich

The specialty of the house is, without a doubt, the Monte Cristo sandwich. Adapted from the French classic sandwich, croque-monsieur, the Monte Cristo sandwich appeared in California restaurants in the 1950s. Featured at Disneyland Park eateries since 1966, it has since become a coffee shop standard nationwide.


When you meander down the narrow streets of New Orleans Square, you are transported into a genteel world of fragrant flowers and leisurely afternoons. Sit down and relax in the gracious dining room or on the shady patio as you watch the boats on Rivers of America glide by.

Close to two of the most popular attractions in Disneyland Park, Pirates of the Caribbean and the Haunted Mansion, it’s also a great place to dine before Fanstasmic! during the summer.
