Fast Eats (and Drinks) at Epcot's Germany Pavilion

Welcome to this month's Blogorail Green Loop. Today we are reviewing the quick service restaurants in Epcot's World Showcase.

When in Epcot, we always prefer snacking along our journey around the World Showcase rather than only exploring one pavilion's offerings. Epcot's quick service location, Sommerfest, is in the perfect location for a quick lunch or snack (and, let's be honest, a cold adult beverage) before moving on to other culinary delights. 

Location & Menu

Nestled in the back of the Germany Pavilion in Epcot's World Showcase, Sommerfest is a small quick service location that has the ability to delight your entire family. 

Sommerfest offers a limited menu that packs a large punch. With only two entrees, three sides and two desserts, you won't find a large variety to choose from, but all of the items are authentic and delicious.

If you're a fan of German pretzels, you can't go wrong at Sommerhouse. They are a delicious snack, especially paired with a cold beer. If you're just in the mood for dessert, the apple strudel is to die for!

One of the only drawbacks to Sommerfest is that like the menu, seating is very limited and outdoors though covered. Often we grab and go; however, if you're looking for a cool place to put your feet up, you may want to proceed to the next pavilion. Sommerfest is adjacent to the Germany Pavilion's sit down restaurant, Biergarten. Sometimes, guests waiting for tables at the restaurant sit down at the few Sommerfest seats, adding to the overcrowded atmosphere.

Entrees (Served with Sauerkraut and House-made Paprika Chips)  

  • Bratwurst
  • Frankfurter
  • Authentic Hand-twisted Pretzel 
  • Nudel Gratin (essentially baked macaroni and cheese)
  • Cold Potato Salad


  • Apple Strudel
  • Black Forest Cake
Disney Dining Plan

  • Accepted! The sides can be a great use of a snack credit.

Beverages for Mom and Dad

At the Germany Pavilion, Octoberfest is celebrated all year long; therefore, you can expect a pretty extensive adult beverage menu at Sommerfest despite its limited food offerings. 

Outside of your standard soft drinks and bottled water, you can get the party started with the following beverages:
  • Schöfferhofer Pink Grapefruit Hefeweizen
  • Altenmünster Oktoberfest
  • Warsteiner Dunkel
  • König Ludwig Weissbier
  • Bärenjäger Honey & Bourbon
  • Berentzen Apfel Shot
  • Jägermeister Shot
  • Selbach Riesling-Red Label Wine
How do you like Sommerfest? Are you planning on stop your next visit to Epcot?
