Minion Café 

Minion Café is now open. It boasts a vibrant atmosphere and an overall immersive dining experience that appeals to all ages. The café is decked out all in yellow with Minion characters – and bananas – everywhere – but mostly in the large centerpiece.  

There are three restaurant sections – the dining room, the kitchen, and the break room. Each features its own special touch from all the favorite minions – Kevin, Bob, Stuart, and Otto. If the bright banana-yellow décor doesn’t wow you, then you’re sure to love the mouthwatering list of Minion-inspired dishes. 

From Carl’s Crispy Cauliflower (vegetarian) and Mel’s Meatball Mountain to great options for the kiddos like the Mini Boss’ Mega Melt Minion’s has it covered. Everywhere you look are homages to Minion characters like the Minion Swiss Roll and Otto’s Pet Rock.
