REVIEW: Contempo Cafe Updates Menu Including Beef Grilled Cheese

On my way to see the final Electrical Parade in the Magic Kingdom, I decided to stop for lunch at Contempo Cafe, located on the 4th Floor of the Grand Canyon Concourse at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. When I arrived, I was greeted by a greatly revised menu.

I of of course had to do my duty for you, the reader, and try one of the new options.

Braised Beef Grilled Cheese ($10.99)

Pot-braised shredded beef, cheddar cheese, vegetable slaw, cheese sauce and barbecue sauce on brioche toast. Those are apparently the ingredients to happiness.

In my experience, most beef-based quick service options are not great, but this was incredible. The toast was perfection, soft, yet crunchy and flaky. The beef, barbecue sauce, and cheese offered a great flavor, reminding me of the kind of grilled cheese sandwiches my mom would make me at home, but combined with a flavorful beef and BBQ sauce combination.

Now, this is technically a melt as it includes more than just cheese, but we won’t get into this now. If this is what the new Contempo Cafe has to offer, I’ll be back to try more of their new dishes as soon as possible.
