What's great at the International Cafe?

Recommended Posts

I forgot to post the photo of the Pistachio Croissant.  It was only okay, cause the pistachio was too soft.  I like the hot monkey bread and the peanut butter cup the best.  The Almond Croissant is still my favorite.  1634872939_A-gcopy.thumb.jpg.5ac4bfc6677513a523f96956d991407d.jpg

Ask for cookies at IC. They are never in the display case. They are always behind the counter and you have to ask for them. The type available varies.

I concur. We always ask for a cookie for our kiddo, and they fish the tray out from behind the counter.

Yes, the plain Croissant were buttery and light, though, they seem a bit smaller in size.

We fly out for London on the 17th and board Sapphire Princess on the 19th. This thread is killing me!!!

Then I stand corrected.  I'll have to give them another try the next time I'm there.

That's so funny!  I'm the exact same way...don't eat donuts at home--ever but on Princess ships will eat one of the sugar donuts.  They do a good job with them.  

Mu husband loves these! We stop there every morning for one (or two)

I may have missed it, but we love the nutella donuts and mozzeralla and tomato paninis. Those nutella donuts were only out once if I'm not mistaken and so delicious!

yes, back in 2017 they were available only on the first morning! I got two! One never made it back to the cabin for my DH as intended.... I don't know what happened.

I will confess to being an "IC Junkie"    As soon as we board we immediately call to trade-in our mini-bar for coffee cards (now electronic).  Early every morning I quietly exit our cabin and quickly make myself at home at the IC with my excellent morning cappuccino.  The custard filled donuts (they have these every other day) is my personal donut favorite, but I have also been known to smile as I eat the egg sandwich (a Princess version of an egg mcmuffin)   In the afternoon I can be very happy if sipping a Banoffee.   It is at the IC that we have previously met and chatted with other CC posters and one CC regular (Howie) actually holds a morning coffee klatch at the IC whenever he cruises.  I have thought about doing the same....but it goes against my grain to be obligated to be anywhere on a schedule.

What is a 'Banoffee'?

I can take a guess but may not get it quite right (somebody will certainly correct me).  It is a variation of ice coffee that is blended with a banana and I think some chocolate syrup.  It is served in a large plastic cup with a dome lid which is usually filled with whipped cream.  It is served at all the various Princess IC's....so the next time you are on one of the ships just ask the great baristas to make you one :).

Very interesting...could have potential if the banana flavor isn't too strong.        Thanks!

Only 4 more days!  We were on  NCL over the summer and while I do like some of their alternative free dining options  I soooo missed the International Cafe!

Have heard that they serve soup.  Any comments on the soup?

Had Ham and Pea Soup and Potato Leek during last 2 weeks and they were both excellent on Golden in the IC

I love the delicious pastries for breakfast, although I have proper breakfast in the fresh market, I always stop by to see what they offer for the day. The almond croissants are so soft and delicious.

For brunch they have soup of the day, I always go for the minestrone or the tomato soup.

I love the salads with feta cheese, the toasted vegetarian pesto, tomato, mozzarella sandwiches and the feta cheese watermelon salad. Hmmm, all so delicious!

The chocolate donuts were my husbands favorite. They don’t always have them in the case but they have them in back. Dennis worked every morning in the IC. He greeted me every morning and remembered the chocolate donut. Two cruises on the Crown and he was on them both. Loved the service!

Fruit Tartlets! 

One day they had tiramisu in a shot glass.  That was yummy, too.
