The café had good food which you can order alacart but they steer you towards the buffet which is more expensive. The sunday buffet has Disney characters walking around but that adds an extra 5 dollars to the already high 25 it costs. But the food is above average for a buffet!

Excellent breakfast buffet and character dining on Sunday breakfast was awesome!!! Characters spent time at each table. The selection offered at the breakfast buffet was phenomenal including an omelet station. Would highly recommend this restaurant in the beautiful new Hilton Buena Vista Palace in Orlando,FL.

Very convenient restaurant for breakfast. The food offerings and quality was exceptional. Hostess service was not always as good as it could have been (see my review on the Buena Vista Palace). If you are staying at the hotel, highly recommend this as breakfast option, especially if you get the free vouchers as HHonors Gold / Diamond member.

it has all you need to take to your room for drinks and a quick bite. Prices are not great but not bad either. It serves as a convenience store with fresh food. Very practical.

Andres and Jean were the most helpful of the Watercress restaurant staff and made our breakfast with the characters and our grandson's birthday a success!

On 2nd day of our stay, we decided to try the cafe for breakfast. Greeted us in friendly manner and immediately sat us at a nice table. I ordered eggs Benedict but the eggs came hard rather than medium poached. The hollandaise sauce was lacking. My husband's croissant breakfast sandwich was just like he liked it but our fruit was...

The menu was limited and nothing special. The servers were quite pleasant. You could get a better meal (price wise / selection) at one of the restaurants down the road.
