Downtown Disney – La Brea Bakery anchors the eastern corner of Downtown Disney. Head as far down the district as you can, in the direction of the park gates, and you’ll spot it. The Bakery overlooks the end water fountain, World of Disney, and the walkway toward the tram.

La Brea is a relaxed bakery that serves two meals a day: brunch and dinner. Its prime location between World of Disney and the park gates makes it the perfect place to stop between coasters and shopping! Whether you want a quick drink and dessert or a full meal, La Brea has a great selection and is an ideal spot to get off your feet.
MY RATING – ★★★★☆
I personally prefer La Brea for lunch to dinner, only because I like their sandwiches best, and prefer other Downtown Disney restaurants’ dinner menus (like Catal or the Rainforest Café). The food is good, and the location is even better. I am knocking off one star, though, because I think the menu items are a bit overpriced. Even so, if you want some fresh bakery food during your stay, La Brea is an awesome choice.
- Caesar with Chicken
- Fried Chicken Sandwich
- Grilled Three Cheese
- Dark Chocolate Ganache Cake
The interior dining room overlooks an open kitchen complete with a stone oven. You can watch as they make your food!
All of the breads featured in menu items are authentic “La Brea” breads.
For guests wanting a meal on the go, La Brea also has an Express restaurant in the same building. In La Brea Express, you can order pre-made sandwiches, salads, and pastries.
