Get ready to step onto the set of the Today Show in the new Today Cafe at Universal Orlando. The new cafe will be an immersive Today Show Experience that will not only feature a replica of the Today Show set, but recipes by co-anchor and weatherman Al Roker’s favorite dishes.
NBC’s TODAY informs, entertains, inspires and sets the agenda each morning for Americans. Now, guests of Universal Orlando will have the chance to start their day with America’s number-one morning show and be part of the Studio 1A experience every time they visit. Guests can step into the stage-lit set inspired by the show and catch up on top headlines from TODAY’s live broadcast, all while refueling for more theme park thrills.
The Universal Creative team behind world-class attractions and Universal’s award-winning culinary team are partnering closely with TODAY. The anchors of the show, Savannah Guthrie, Hoda Kotb, Al Roker, Carson Daly, Craig Melvin, Kathie Lee Gifford, Sheinelle Jones, Dylan Dreyer, Willie Geist and others, helped to inspire the one-of-a-kind experience that can only be found at Universal Studios Florida.
The TODAY Cafe will offer specialty breakfast options like avocado toast and an organic acai bowl to New York-inspired sandwiches and salads. Top highlights include a new twist on a classic Italian sandwich piled high with porchetta, spicy capicola, provolone, roasted tomato, arugula, basil aioli on a crunchy baguette, and an Asian-inspired chicken salad that will combine baby arugula, cabbage, radicchio, shitake mushrooms, daikon sprouts, wasabi cashews and soy peanut vinaigrette. Additionally, in tribute to a long running tradition in Kathie Lee and Hoda’s hour of TODAY, guests can enjoy wine and beer on tap with a delicious cheese platter for two.

Probably one of the coolest additions to the menu is the Today Coffee, which is a special blend made specifically for the Today Cafe, and locally roasted. The Today Cafe is the second “time of day” themed attraction (or eatery in this case) with the Tonight Show themed “Race Through New York”, which opened in 2017. It’s the latest addition to Universal Orlando Resort, which will also open the highly anticipated Hagrid Motorbike Adventure at Islands of Adventure. Later this summer, Universal will also open it’s first offisite hotel with Endless Summer BeachSide.
