REVIEW: Breakfast, Snacks, and Most Specialty Beverages at Oga’s Cantina in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge
Bright suns, everyone! This morning, we’re taking a look at the breakfast offerings at Oga’s Cantina at Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge in Disneyland. This bar offers six specialty drinks for the morning hours, as well as two shared grab-and-go food offerings with Docking Bay 7 Food and Cargo. This wretched hive of scum and villainy features some awesome music courtesy of DJ-R3X, and a wide variety of drinks and espresso beverages during breakfast. (A word of warning: if you do happen to partake in the cantina’s alcoholic offerings, know that you will have to finish the beverage inside the cantina.) We’ll start with a tour of the cantina and move on to food and beverage items.
By the way, we were the first ones inside today. It goes without saying that we were very excited for Oga’s.
Oga’s Cantina – Exterior
Oga’s Cantina – Interior
DJ R-3X, also known as REX, will be providing all travelers with interesting music from across the galaxy, having given up his old job as a Starspeeder 3000 pilot for Star Tours. Turns out that the DJ-R3X droid is voiced by none other than Paul Reubens… and yes, the audio-animatronic is perfect:
Oga’s Cantina – Specialty Beverages and Bites Menu
Concoctions With Alcohol
Spiran Caf – Peru Alto Mayo Organic Joffrey’s Coffee, Orange Marmalade, Gosling’s 151 Rum, Vanilla Whipped Cream, and Citrus Zest – $16.00
Simply delicious! The citrus zest is a bit heavy, up front and on the back-end, but we love citrus, so it’s good with us. The 151 rum is well-masked, but also well-felt, so be prepared.
Bloody Rancor – Tito’s Handmade Vodka, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, Spicy Bloody Mary Mix, and Rancor Bone – $17.00
The Bloody Rancor is an extremely spicy Bloody Mary. There’s nothing special to it to differentiate it from other Bloody Marys, but it’s still solid if you want one.The meringue bone is kind of awkward, as it has nothing to do with the flavor and is just there for looks. We would appreciate a garlic breadstick more. The meringue doesn’t taste good, either.
For something so basic, this is the ultimate execution of overnight oats. It’s amazing and served chilled, as it should be. The fruit is super fresh, too. This exceeded our expectations!
Mustafarian Lava Roll – $6.00
The Mustafarian Lava Roll is basically an Oreo-topped cinnamon roll merged into croissant form! Very good.
Concoctions with Alcohol
Fuzzy Tauntaun – Ciroc Peach Vodka, Bols Peach Schnapps, Simply Orange with Tangerine, Pure Cane Sugar, and “Buzzz” Foam – $15.00
Fuzzy Tauntaun was the most unique of the specialty drinks we tried, providing a tingling sensation on the tongue and lips. There’s a strong citrus taste that’s sweet, but enjoyable. This is definitely one of the must-order items on the menu.
Jedi Mind Trick – Ketel One Botanical Grapefruit and Rose Vodka, John D. Taylor’s Velvet Falernum, Bols Blue Curaçao, White Grape Juice, Lime Juice, and Grapefruit Bitters – $14.00
Jedi Mind Trick is a sweet tiki drink with tropical juices, but not much in terms of flavor.
Dagobah Slug Slinger –– Herradura Reposado Tequila, Bols Blue Curacao, Citrus Juices, Ginger, Herbs, and Bitters – $15.00
The Slug Slinger is sweet and herbal, but has a medicinal quality to it that is overwhelming.
Jet Juice – Maker’s Mark Bourbon, Ancho Reyes Chile Liqueur, Cedilla Açaí Liqueur, White Grape Juice, and Lemon Juice – $14.00
Jet Juice is too sweet and unbalanced. I’d skip it, even if you like strong drinks. It’d be nice if Jet Juice had more of the bourbon come through.
Yub Nub – Malibu Pineapple Rum, Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum, Citrus Juices, and Passion Fruit, Served in a Souvenir Endor Mug – $42.00
The passion fruit in the Yub Nub overpowers here, but not in a bad way. This is your tropical rum-based drink. It isn’t life changing, but serves its purpose as the fruity rum drink on the menu. Not to mention that amazing Endor mug…
Concoctions without Alcohol
Cliff Dweller – Citrus Juices, Coconut, Hibiscus-Grenadine, and Seagram’s Ginger Ale, Served in a Souvenir Porg Mug – $32.00
Everyone agreed that the Cliff Dweller was the surprise favorite. It’s well-balanced and tasty with a blend of citrus, coconut, and hibiscus grenadine. We didn’t even care there wasn’t any alcohol in this. It’s a clear winner, and the mug is very cute.
Blue Bantha – Blue Milk served chilled with Bantha-inspired Vanilla-Butter Sugar Cookie – $13.00
In the case of the Blue Bantha, the cookie on top with the nut layer is good, but the milk just tastes odd, and is somewhat of a disappointment. This is a definite pass for us.
Oga’s Obsession – Lemonade, Cotton Candy Flavor, and Blueberry Popping Pearls with a Bursting Dried Fruit Mixture – $7.50
Oga’s Obsession is basically jello with boba in it, and it’s good if you are in the mood for a gelatin.
Beers on Tap
Rancor Beer Flight Souvenir Board with Four Teeth – $75.00
Gold Squadron Lager (5.0% ABV) – Blue Point Brewing Company, Patchogue, NY – $12.00
The winner from the flight. It has a very different flavor profile that is subtle, with hints of fruit and then a smooth taste of lavender that’s definitely present, but not overpowering.
White Wampa Ale (4.5% ABV) – Ballast Point Brewing Company, San Diego, CA – $13.00
Classic hefeweizen. The banana notes hit first, but are subtle. The citrus flavor lingers long after the first sip.
Gamorrean Ale (5.8% ABV) – New Belgium Brewing Company, Fort Collins, CO – $12.00
A hoppy red ale that hits you in the face with a strong, roasted flavor, before the citrusy grapefruit notes hit. Excellent!
Bad Motivator IPA (6.0% ABV) – Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, Chico, CA – $12.00
As the name might imply, this is a very average IPA.
Batuu Bits – A Light, Crisp Snack Mix from the Galaxy – $8.00
Batuu bits is perfect salty bar food, and well-themed, too. There were dried fish pieces in there with crispy breads and such. Overall, this is really different for a Disney bar, and I suggest you try it if you usually like a snack with your drink.
