{Review} Cable Car Bake Shop & The Steakhouse – Disneyland Paris

I was expecting a lot from the bakeries at Disneyland Paris.  I had seen so many pictures of the amazing food that people were eating at Disneyland in the USA that I had a feeling I’d be eating some amazing food at Disneyland Paris.  Unfortunately, I was mistaken.  The Cable Car Bake Shop at Disneyland Paris was a HUGE disappointment.

Things started out hopeful when I saw the outside of the Bake Shop.  It had a quaint store front with a big Bake Shop sign and I was excited to head inside!

But the excitement stopped there.

As I entered the Bake Shop I noticed immediately the lack of selection of confections they had to offer.  The shelves in the case were half empty and what they did have… well I’d seen those pastries, cakes and cookies in every other store in the park.  There was nothing special.  I was so underwhelmed, that I didn’t even take a picture.  The photo below is from DLPGuide.com and I included it just to give you an idea of what I saw… although when I was there, there was only half of what’s pictured to choose from.

As I checked out what the Bake Shop had to offer, the cupcakes at the very end caught my eye.  I thought MAYBE there was some hope… they had CUPCAKES!  But, alas, they were frozen, processed, premade offsite cupcakes.  Gross.  They didn’t even look appealing.  I mean, they looked so bad that I didn’t even buy one.

I did however, post this picture to Instagram immediately and proclaim my horror and disappointment.

I mean really… I get that I was in Europe and cupcakes aren’t a big here.  But COME ON!  They even had the glow of just coming out of the freezer still.  There’s no way I’d eat them.

I left the Cable Car Bake Shop so disappointed.  Like, seriously disappointed.  I was so looking forward to eating some delicious baked yummies at Disneyland Paris too.  *sigh*

I will say though that Disneyland Paris did partially redeem itself at dinner later that evening.  We stopped at The Steakhouse in the Village at Disneyland Paris and my meal came with a mini cheesecake for dessert.

I’m not a huge fan of cheesecake, but I thought I’d give it a try and OH MY… it was probably one of the best cheesecakes I’d ever had!  Thick graham cracker crust, creamy cheesecake and a raspberry sauce that was TO DIE FOR!  This dessert actually became the inspiration for a cheesecake I made that I’ll be posting for National Cheesecake Day later this week!

Dave ordered the creme brulee and although I only had one bite of it… it was so deliciously good!

So… if you’re headed to Disneyland Paris I’d suggest skipping the Bake Shop and ordering dessert at The Steakhouse!

  1. Thanks for the review! We are planning a trip to Disney Paris next year and now at least I won’t be hoping for some yummy cupcakes and end up disappointed.

  2. Heh well I’m more likely to make it to Disney world or Disney land California but if I ever make it to DLP I will keep this tip in mind! I usually check Disney food blog to see what they have to say about disney eateries but I’ve honestly never looked at DLP.

  3. I have an annual pass to Disneyland Paris and had their fudge once and never again! The only thing that is decent on the main street is the waffle and ice cream. ;p
    But I keep going to Disneyland Paris for the pin trading at least once a month.

  4. Disney is a funny place, where I’d expect to find something wonderful, I won’t. And where it’s unexpected, that’s where I find the ‘magic’. Lol
    Awesome review.

  5. Sadly I’ve only been to Disney World when I was 15 with my high school marching band. lol My husband and I really want to take our kids… one day hopefully. 🙂

  6. I have to say that overall Disneyland Paris does not compare to Disneyland anaheim or Orlando! The staff does not have this , how shall I put it, “Disney Magical Feel”… and overall I was disappointed too. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Disney and I always get excited when we go to the one in Paris, but if you have been to the American parcs, the whole organization and atmosphere lacks in so many ways. Loved your honest review Betsy! (What I really wanted to buy in Paris was one of those caramel apples that the sell in Anaheim, they are in the shape of either mickey and minnie and are out of this world ! Would have loved also too see some of their great fudge and marshmallow creations. If you haven’t been to the one in Anaheim Betsy, it’s pastry-chocolate-heaven!)

  7. i cant give any insight into the bakeries as we didnt bother with them due to like you said lack of selctions.but the rest of the park for us too was a bitter disspaointment.no charwctr but one.not enthusiams from staff.and the ride were pfff at the most.the only highlight would be the parade of light in the evening.considering we wanted to get the whole day of fun in so attented at 4am to que at the early bird gates it wasnt a good day!!

  8. I went to Disneyland Paris last year and I think I went to that bakery, It was lovely inside but i found that there wasn’t much choice. I ended up getting a meal deal in the end x

  9. I’ve been to Disneyland in California, haven’t been to any of the bakeries there. I have only had ice cream at Disneyland.

  10. Just reading your post and felt the same! We went three months ago and it was really dissapointing with the food and specially with desserts. Plus, my kids are alergic to eggs and no food for them or information about what the food contained. In a couple of years we´ll go to Disney World 😉

    1. Bea… A lot of people I’ve talked to said that Disney World and Disneyland are SO MUCH DIFFERENT and better than DLParis in terms of food. So… I’m looking forward to checking them out when we move back to the USA!
