Raglan Road at Downtown Disney – The Rollicking Raglan Weekend Brunch

The hubs and I recently visited Raglan Road at Downtown Disney to try their Rollicking Raglan Weekend Brunch.  We got a close spot by the Pleasure Island entrance and walked a short distance to the restaurant.

We began our journey with bread service.

Irish brown soda bread with a Guinness reduction and olive oil.  This was so good, it was almost like a dessert.  Mmm carbs.

We started with an appetizer, the tart art, an asparagus & goat cheese tart with garden peas, leeks & lemon oil dressed arugula.

Very fresh and light, I loved this!

For his entrée, the hubs selected the roast with potato roasties, yorkshire pudding and veggies (green beans) with a red wine jus.

For my entrée, I chose the eggs en cocotte.

Farm fresh eggs baked with spinach, mushrooms and Dubliner cheddar cheese served with toast soldiers.  Gorgeous presentation!  This dish was rich and delicious.  I could have licked that little pot o’cheesy goodness clean!

After an extremely satisfying brunch and full belly, we enjoyed a very talented group of musicians and singers performing Irish and Scottish folk songs.  I could have listened all day.

The bodhrán player was fantastic!

The band was joined by Celtic dancers, who were exhausting to watch.

We felt like they burned enough calories for us, so we enjoyed a dessert while we watched them dance.

We shared a delicious bread pudding.

Our fantastic server, Jennifer, suggested we empty the bread pudding onto the plate and spread it out, before coating it in a lovely glaze of butterscotch and crème anglaise.

Excellent idea.  It was sweet and delish!
