Everglazed Donuts & Cold Brew, Disney Springs’ newest restaurant opened yesterday to folks lined up for some tasty treats! A fun and funky menu awaits all donut, creative cocktail and caffeine lovers. Disney Park Magic was there on opening day to check out this new spot. Here’s our first visit recap.
Everglazed Donuts – A Donut Shop So Creative You’d Only Find it at Disney
First things, first. The menu provides a wild, over the top variety of both sweet AND savory options that will surely satisfy any type of taste. They’ve got donuts, sandwiches, fries, coffee, spiked coffee, beer & seltzers. Just take a look:
Yes, you read that correctly. You can order a burger on a griddled, glazed donut bun! The shop is quite small. However, it is certainly designed for the Instagram age. As you wait in line to order, you can check out all the donuts being made (apologies for the window glare):
The design has a very bright, colorful and retro twist:
The line moved really fast, and because everything is made fresh from scratch daily, when they run out they run out. On opening day, there was a limit of one donut per person. A quick workaround is ordering the Glazed & Confused Spiked Coffee, because it comes with a maple bacon donut…on top!
Fries, Donuts, Spiked Coffee…Oh My!
Everything was awesome! Flavors were great,: hot items – hot, donuts – fresh and the spiked coffees perfectly blended. Not too icy, not too liquid-y (is that a word?) – if you’ve ever had a bad blended drink you know it’s easy to make it wrong. These were perfect.
Pictured above are the Spicy Fries, the Glazed & Confused Spiked Coffee, the Peanut Butter Explosion donut and the Mounds Coconut Dream donut.
Pictured above are the Loaded Fries, Little Italy Spike Coffee (with those cute little tri-color Italian cookie bits!) and the Nutella Bella.
The spiked coffees are 16 oz. The regular cold brews are 24 ounces. They do offer a nitro version, but my three friends and I couldn’t order more than what we already did. Not because we weren’t allowed, but because I was afraid we wouldn’t be able to fit into our pants if we did.
If the menu gives you sticker shock, you need to remember that this is Disney Springs. A burger, fries and a hard seltzer will run you close to $25 – not out of the ordinary for a lunch for one at the Walt Disney World resort. The donuts are either $4.50 or $5.50, which run on the steep end for a donut. But, this isn’t your typical Krispy Kreme. Two people can easily share one and they are probably the largest, most topped and tastiest donuts this author has had. If you’re looking for any “sweet” spot of affordability on the menu, the donut holes are a great value as is the only spiked coffee to come with a donut – the aforementioned Glazed & Confused.
Backstory & Recap
We had a chance to chat with one of the guys behind this creative and cool concept. This is a one-of-a-kind location and is the creation of the team that runs Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ Kitchen and the Splitsville Bowling Alley. They shared with us that it was inspired by work that is currently going on to spruce up the area directly outside the secondary entrance of the Orange Parking Garage. Mind you, you currently can’t enter on that side, due to COVID-19 entrance screening.
The group actually closed down two bowling lanes to create space for the Everglazed prep kitchen. Part of Splitsville is being “re-imagined” for a more open, visually pleasing entrance. This makes sense since Everglazed has such an open window concept.
All in all, this was an awesome treat. But as you can see from the photos way more than one person might feel comfortable eating in one seating. Speaking of seating, there is a super cute outdoor area with tables and chairs reserved for Everglazed customers. We had a great time, the service was awesome, the food tasty and they’ve thought of everything. Case in point? Much needed wet naps included in our bag. Everglazed Donuts should be on the list for your next trip to Disney Springs!
