OLP Review:

The Contempo Cafe is located right next to Chef Mickeys in the Contemporary Resort.

The seating is plentiful, comfortable, and aesthetic.

Orders are taken through an automated system that prompts selections. 

Desserts and sides are self-serve.... are hot beverages; >)

We were quite pleased with our selections;

A Vegetarian Mediterranean Salad

A Southwest Chicken Salad with a yummy avocado dressing:)

Soup of the day: Homemade Chicken Vegetable

And a burger with a whole grain bun and an option for a vegetable instead of fries (This was a very happy discovery for us!)

Prices were moderate - less than $15 per person with beverage.  We found our meal tasty and satisfying.  Two OLP thumbs up for Contempo Cafe

Contempo cafe is possibly the best of the resort quick service eateries. Today I spent breakfast and lunch here,seating is nicely laid out and the open airy feeling is very enjoyable. I had the breakfast burrito which was pretty flavorful and not too heavy. Ordering is done entirely through automated kiosks which have grown on me over time, especially since you get a pager so you can go get a seat and a drink while you wait for food to be cooked. For lunch I tried a flatbread and was pleasantly surprised by cheesy goodness ! All in all it was a good place to kill a morning, food was good and fresh, and tech lovers like myself will have a great time while enjoying the monorail sounds in the background .

We ate here before the Pirate and Pals Fireworks Cruise. The food was good. I had a cheeseburger and my hubby had pizza. We had a big party (8) and there was plenty of room for our group.

Almost two years later, we returned to the Contempo Cafe for breakfast.  The Contempo Cafe is a little different from what has become the standard Disney World Resort counter service restaurant.  At first it is a little confusing, you are presented with an electronic ordering system (the down side being you can't see the food before ordering it, the up side being short lines and quick order placement).  Then you go to the register to pay and get a pager.  Its all very techno as one would expect in the Contemporary.

I have mixed feelings about this system.  However, the French Toast and turkey sauasage which I received was fresh and very tasty -- I'm a bit of a snob about my French toast and I have to say that this French toast was quite good by any standards.  By counter service standards, this was the best French toast I've ever had!

We wandered into the new Contempo Cafe in the Contemporary Resort today, looking to grab a quick lunch before going to our Bay Lake Towers room.  The ordering process was a bit confusing - you put your order into a computer terminal and then you are supposed to go to the cashier and pay for your food and drinks.  They give you a pager to tell you when your food is ready.  We struggled with the computer terminal for  few minutes (push the selection, hold for a second, then release seems to work well!) and then wandered around the bakery for a few minutes before finally realizing that we needed to go pay for our order.

After sorting that out, I decided that the system is a good way to go, although the touch screens don't seem to be very sensitive.  We got to order exactly what we wanted and the orders were done to perfection.  I got an Angus Cheeseburger -- cheddar cheese, green beans instead of fri
