Guests Can Experience Studio 1A Themed Cafe and Enjoy New York Inspired Menu Items
The TODAY Cafe, located at Universal Studios Florida, is a prime location to grab breakfast, lunch or a snack before or after enjoying world-class attractions and entertainment throughout the day in the theme parks. The cafe brings together a highly-themed environment designed to feel like stepping onto the iconic TODAY show set along with specialty food and beverage options.
NBC’s TODAY informs, entertains, inspires and sets the agenda each morning for Americans. Now, guests of Universal Orlando have the chance to start their day with America’s number-one morning show and be part of the Studio 1A experience every time they visit. Guests can step into a venue inspired by the show – complete with stage lighting and vibrant orange theming – and catch up on top headlines from TODAY’s live broadcast, all while refueling for more theme park thrills.
The Universal Creative team behind world-class attractions and Universal’s award-winning culinary team partnered closely with TODAY to create this dining venue. The anchors of the show, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Carson Daly, Craig Melvin, Jenna Bush Hager, Sheinelle Jones, Dylan Dreyer, Willie Geist and others, helped to inspire the one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found at Universal Studios Florida.
One of the standout features of the TODAY Cafe menu is the seasonal dishes inspired by the anchors’ favorite recipes. Every day menu options include fresh, in-house baked pastries, salads, sandwiches and specialty, locally-roasted coffees. Guests can grab items on-the-go, or enjoy their meal any time of the day at seating both inside and outside in an area designed to look like the TODAY Plaza.
The TODAY Cafe offers specialty breakfast options like avocado toast and an organic acai bowl to New York-inspired sandwiches and salads. Top highlights include a new twist on a classic Italian sandwich piled high with porchetta, spicy capicola, provolone, roasted tomato, arugula, basil aioli on a crunchy baguette, and an Asian-inspired chicken salad that combines baby arugula, cabbage, radicchio, shitake mushrooms, daikon sprouts, wasabi cashews and soy peanut vinaigrette. Additionally, in tribute to a long-running tradition in the fourth hour of TODAY, guests can enjoy wine and beer on tap with a delicious cheese platter for two.
Universal Orlando’s culinary team continues to take dining experiences to the next level by creating highly-themed environments to tell unique stories through food. From award-winning restaurants to magnificently-themed eateries, there is something for every member of the family at one of the destination’s three theme parks, Universal CityWalk and resort hotels.
