Spyglass Grill is now officially a hidden vegan gem at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. Prior to pandemic closure, there was a yucca bowl offered here. Once Caribbean Beach Resort reopened, a new version of this Plant-based Fried Yucca Bowl was offered at Centertown Market. This item is still there, and slightly different from the Yucca Bowl options on the new Spyglass Grill menu. We’ll show you everything – and trust me, this IS worth a visit even if you aren’t staying at Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort! Don’t forget you can always check our complete vegan guides to Walt Disney World parks, resorts, Disney Springs, and Disney water parks, which are constantly updated each month – links at the bottom of the page or on our main home page.
First up, breakfast. Served from 7am-11:30am – you can mobile order from anywhere and head over to pick it up during your window of time that you select when you order. The plant-based options have their own tab here so you can be sure you are choosing the right options. If you need any changes or substitutions, just speak to a cast member at the counter when you arrive.
New to the menu is a Breakfast Wrap – ($6.99 – yes you read that right), which is plant-based as is. Completely vegan! Made with Just Egg brand scramble, cooked spinach, and Beyond meat brand chorizo. Then wrapped in a flour tortilla and grilled so it is crispy – and let me tell you, that one extra step makes it SO delicious. Instead of a soft and chewy wrap, you get a crispy, golden brown crunch with every bite. The textures are perfection. The wrap itself is full of flavor and I absolutely loved it. The chorizo does have a little spice to it but not too much, however, if that’s not your thing, be aware.
Next up, the Trinidad Sunrise Crispy Yuca Bowl – ($9.49). This bowl consists of plant-based eggs served over crispy yuca with black beans and topped with pico de gallo. So if you are looking for something without plant-based meat, this might be your ticket.
The fried yucca is delicious and filling. If you haven’t had yucca before either here or with the Impossible Sliders at Nomad Lounge), they are like really thick potatoes. They almost taste like undercooked potatoes in texture, but they are cooked. The black beans and Just Egg are the perfect topping here with the pico, and it makes for a tasty and filling breakfast for sure.
You can get sides of fresh fruit, and the previous menu item of Steel Cut Oatmeal with dried fruit and nuts is still available as well. Honestly, these two menu items are totally worth a Skyliner visit or even just driving over if you have a car, to get these for breakfast. Wonderful additions and I hope they stick around for a long time!
For lunch and dinner, we have some updates. The previous Crispy Yucca Vegetable Bowl served here has been redone and is now the Trinidad Crispy Yuca Bowl – ($13.99). It was much smaller before and half the price. It is now a much bigger bowl and where the Sunrise bowl has Just Egg, the lunch/dinner bowl has the Beyond chorizo.
There is no cheese on this either like the one at Centertown Market (see photo above this one). The Plant-based Fried Yucca Bowl at Centertown Market comes with sliced Field Roast and plant-based cheese on top.
Here at Spyglass Grill, it is the Beyond Chorizo, black beans, and pico de gallo, topped with cilantro-lime tofu crema.
This was incredibly delicious and again, so filling and satisfying. Love this option when you don’t feel like the Impossible BBQ Burger – ($12.79) (which, as noted in my All-Star Sports review, I was not a huge fan of :P).
Next up, the Black Bean Tacos – ($9.99) (formerly the Caribbean Black Bean Tacos). I wasn’t super excited to try these, but let me tell you, they were delicious! Flavorful black beans in a mini flour tortilla, topped with slaw, and the same cilantro-lime tofu crema from the Yucca Bowl, served with pico de gallo and some plantain and yucca chips.
The beans themselves are full of flavor, but add the slaw and crema, a little pico and some lime juice?! Pretty darn satisfying!! I would definitely go back for these, and they are a great whole food plant-based option (which I love to have during race weekends!).
You can get sides of the plantain and yucca chips or fries, and some fun drinks, including Joffrey’s coffee and virgin tropical drinks.
