BoardWalk Inn lobby coffee shop construction - October 4 2022
Posted: Thursday October 6, 2022 9:43am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

Work is now underway on the first of several updates coming to Disney's BoardWalk Inn lobby.

Dundy's Sundries is now closed and will soon become a new coffee shop. The new coffee bar will serve artisanal beverages and quick bites, available to-go or in newly refreshed seating spaces inside or outdoors.

Dundy's Sundries previously sold gifts and essentials, and is located just off the main lobby area.

Merchandise sold in Dundy's Sundries can be found at the Screendoor General Store outside the hotel on the boardwalk.

a fancy kind of Victorian cake shop would feel like the right placement for the Grand Floridian...especially for a lovely girly afternoon tea...I don't ever think "High Tea" and "Jersey Shore Boardwalk"...it is not a match... I guess we should be glad they didn't drop this into the Polynesian...since it seems lately like the name of the game is putting things in places they don't necessarily belong... I am waiting for the Taco Bowl restaurant to open at the Riviera...lol

Yes, but if they put it there then there'd be this whole population of people who would say how dare they put a cake shop in a victorian-themed beach resort. You might not agree with that but someone on here would say it.

I'm with you. Looks very GF to me.

Beaches & Cream was never much of a diner in terms of the menu, but it certainly had more of a diner interior. It had some charm that the new location lacks entirely.

I've been to some higher end diner-style places in various cities. That could be a really wonderful addition. Especially now that Beaches and Cream basically ditched their version of it.

A diner at the Boardwalk would be fantastic. Serve breakfast all day along with other diner options.

I can’t speak to that but it is frustrating that if you want a late night bite you really cant do that at any resort

There are no late night restaurants around Crescent Lake for after Epcot closes or if your flight arrives late. One trip, our flight was diverted due to a medical emergency. We were staying at Grand Flo, so having Gasperilla open to feed my tired, hungry kids and in-laws at 11pm was a godsend.

In the old days, didn't every deluxe have an all-night diner, like Pikabu at the Dolphin?

I have suggested that many times.... lol I actually think a Diner type restaurant is what is needed... and would be much appreciated. and something that was open late...like midnight minimum... and design the thing to look appropriate for 1940s Jersey shore... It would be adorable and extremely popular. Especially with pork roll egg and cheese sandwiches for breakfast

I’m open to that. Disney needs some late night dining.

You are absolutely right…they should put a REAL NJ diner there…all stainless steel, shaped like a train car, open til midnight every night…breakfast available all day, Taylor Han/pork roll sandwiches…& disco fries…lines out the door…
