Mama Melrose’s Ristorante Italiano is coming in hot with the plant based options! We just brought you a review of their vegan appetizer and now we have a review of their newest vegan dessert!
Vegan Dessert at Mama Melrose’s in Disney’s Hollywood Studios
Get excited! This dessert is well thought out and doesn’t contain your average run-of-the-mill sorbet or Tofutti ice cream.
Here you have the Cappuccino Affogato ($9) but it’s not an affogato in the truest sense of the word. It’s a play on an affogato, and a delicious one if I do say so myself.
Normally an affogato is coffee with a scoop of ice cream. This affogato consists of one layer of chocolate espresso ganache symbolizing the coffee and a layer of cashew custard to serve as the melted ice cream. It is served in the tiniest cappuccino cup with a chocolate coffee bean.
The presentation is adorable. Along with a dusting of cocoa powder outlining a coffee spoon, are two more chocolate beans and a delicious almond brittle.
I sprinkled mine on top of each bite of custard for a bit of texture.
Here’s a look at the layers after digging in.
This dessert was just the right size and satisfied my sweet tooth without going overboard. Mama Melrose’s is definitely my favorite full service restaurant for vegan options in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
