Beverage Recon: “Breakfast” at Dawa Bar

Good morning, Walt Disney World fans!  Happy Saturday!

You know, until recently, I wasn’t all that big of a Bloody Mary fan.  That’s an odd statement to start a Disney-related post off with, I know.

You see, I do like to enjoy a vodka martini now and then, but how did I use to react if someone added “tomato juice” into the mix?  Yuck!

Then, we had “breakfast” at Dawa Bar.  Hah!  Right about now, you’re thinking … “Breakfast”?!  When did Dawa start serving breakfast?



If you’re familiar with this “hang out”, then you know that it’s a very small bar that attaches to the outside of Animal Kingdom’s “meat feast” – Tusker House.

Dawa is a great place to wait for your seat at Tusker.  As we found out, it’s also an excellent place to escape the cold on an early Spring day.

What?!  How can that be, Bob?  Look at your own picture!  You can plainly see that Dawa is an outdoor bar!

Well, there’s where “breakfast” comes in … er, a liquid “breakfast.  Yes, Mrs. All in WDW and I – fresh off an ice-cold ride on Kilimanjaro Safari – needed a bit of “antifreeze”!

What did we find at Dawa Bar?  A smorgasbord of Bloody Marys, of course!  Take a look!


We ordered the African Bloody Mary …


I mean, really.  Who can pass on a drink garnished with a huge slice of crispy candied Nueske’s bacon?

We also bought a Dawa Bloody Mary.  I was enticed by both its cheese-stuffed olive as well as its prosciutto.


Both drinks were delicious, but we, by far, preferred – and would highly recommend – the African Bloody Mary.

So.  Did Dawa convince me to become a Bloody Mary fan?  Um, yes, in fact, it did!  Especially if those cocktails are mixed and served in the place “Where Dreams Come True”!

See you later, folks!
