Expanded Bakery Opens in France in Epcot

If you were frustrated with the tiny cramped bakery in France in Epcot, your frustrations have ended, as the revised bakery has opened with a huge eating area (thanks to taking over the former gift shop area):

As an added bonus, it appears that this will not be branded as a Starbucks.

At last an improvement I can see the benefit of! The line we had to stand in on NYE was like a giant snake all the way back to the door of Chef de France.

Anything that means I can get a Napoleon faster is a good thing in my book.

By the way, pre-opening reports indicated that the new bakery would seat 90, but it appears that might have been a conservative estimate as the new place is definitely big.

thank goodness. I was never in the mood to eat those pastries later in the day- I want them at 9am!!!

Just seen the menu for breakfast and makes no sense. Mousse au chocolate, but not pain au chocolate, no croissants, no Brioche.

Yes, the breakfast menu is odd; DIS usually gets things correct in its reports, so maybe someone at WDW thinks people want dessert items for breakfast (or maybe since morning in the US is afternoon in Europe, they erroneously think Europeans want dessert then).

I think more likely, Disney has given them the wrong menu ( as it is the night time dessert menu).
