Did somebody say, mimosa flight?!?
Yes! Lamplight Lounge is now open for brunch on Saturdays and Sundays!
Lamplight Lounge at Pixar Pier has been open for just under a year and has become one of the premiere restaurant experiences at Disney California Adventure. With additional crowds coming to Disney California Adventure this summer, adding an extra breakfast dining option was a smart move. I’m hoping they will eventually extend brunch to every day!
I was there for day one of brunch and I’m excited to share what I tried and provide additional details about the meal.

Lamplight Lounge Brunch Details
Lamplight Lounge brunch is available on Saturdays and Sundays, from opening to 11:30. The kitchen switches over to lunch at noon, so be aware that if you are seated after 11:30, you may have to order from the lunch menu. I was seated at 10:30am and had plenty of time to order brunch. (Read my full review of Lamplight Lounge’s lunch and dinner menu here.)
Reservations are highly recommended, but walk-ups may also be allowed depending on how busy it is. You can make reservations via the Disneyland app or on the Disneyland website.

Lamplight Lounge Brunch Drinks
There are also four specialty alcoholic beverages available:

Beermosa – Blood orange IPA topped with fresh orange juice.
Morning Glory – Tito’s Handmade Vodka with spicy bloody Mary mix, dill pickle brine, and a dash of celery bitters.
Aside from the specialty beverages, the full bar is also available.
I started my meal with a mimosa flight, and wasn’t aware I’d received 4 generous sized portions! Wowza! This was a little much for me alone (champagne goes right to my head) but it would be perfect for two people to share.
The mimosa flight flavors are (from left to right): Creme de Peach and Mango purée, watermelon fresca, orange juice and ginger, and St Germain (elderflower) and grapefruit. Unfortunately the mimosas are only available in the flight and not as separate drinks.
Lamplight Lounge Brunch Food
Due to my food sensitivities, my options were limited. I asked about ordering the avocado toast without steak, and was pleasantly surprised to find out they can do this and with a lower price tag ($16). Even without the meat, the dish was very filling and I really enjoyed it. The menu says one egg but I believe I received two. The potatoes were also soft and lightly seasoned. Really good!
I saw a lot of people around me ordering the French Toast and it looked amazing! I’ll certainly add more pictures to this article as I can.
Lamplight Lounge Brunch – Allergies and Special Diets
I also asked about an allergy menu or special diets and found out the following information:
– There are three “gluten friendly” options: The Lamplight Chilaquiles, the Egg White Frittata, and the Potato Flautas
– The potato flautas are vegan as ordered.
– The Chilaquiles can be made vegan by eliminating the cheese and egg, and you can also add the plant-based chorizo!
– As mentioned above, the avocado toast can be made vegetarian by eliminating the steak. It can also be served with salmon.
If you have a serious food allergy, sensitivity, or a special diet, be sure to ask to speak with the chef before ordering.
I really loved my experience at Lamplight Lounge brunch and can’t wait to go back and try more menu items!
