Primo Eats: Jambon Beurre

There is a lot about Epcot’s France Pavilion that reminds me of Paris, but when it comes to food, nothing gives me flashbacks to my City of Love honeymoon more than the Jambon Beurres served at Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie.

Jambon Beurre literally translates to Ham Butter, but don’t let the American name deter you. Epcot’s Traditional French Bakery, Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie, makes a sensational rendition of this sandwich.

The Jambon Beurre is made up of salty ham, thin slices of Gruyere cheese, and a spread of butter mixed with Dijon mustard served on a small baguette. The sandwich costs $7.50 and serves one.

This is a sandwich that is more bread than stuff—but that’s okay. Don’t be tempted to mess it up with lettuce and tomatoes. It’s perfect the way it is. The baguette is crusty and chewy on the outside and soft and airy on the inside. If you like to eat on the go, this sandwich is perfect. It’s not a bit messy and you can easily hold it in your hand while you stroll around the park.

Every time I eat a Jambon Beurre, I think of how I often got these sandwiches in Paris as a snack while I strolled from my hotel to the Eiffel Tower (probably a very gauche, American thing to do).

As we’ve said before in our blogs, Les Halles Boulangerie-Patisserie is one of our favorite Epcot spots to eat, probably myfavorite quick service location in all the Walt Disney World. The location serves soup, sandwiches, salads, and AMAZING pastries.

Here are 3 reasons you should check it out:

#1 Traditional 

If you want your éclair to taste like a “real” éclair, you won’t be disappointed here.

#2 Fast & Friendly

The line sometimes looks long here, but the cast members move it quickly. The best part is that once you are teamed up with a server, they stay with you, manage your tray and hand it off to the cashier once it’s loaded with goodies. (Sometimes my husband and I wish the line would go slower so we could have more time to gaze at all the pastries.)

#3 Great Hours

Even though the World Showcase usually doesn’t open until 11 a.m., Les Halles opens at 9 a.m. Part of the reason why I always push my family to stay at the Beach Club Resort (located right next to Epcot’s World Showcase entrance) is so I can breakfast at Les Halles every day.

Is it time for lunch yet? Bon Appétit!
