The steampunk realm is the perfect marriage between Sci-Fi and fantasy, where Victorian drama meets the industrial revolution. It’s a theme that movies and books have explored in immersive detail, sucking you into a fantastical world. And at Universal Orlando, you can actually dine in a massive steampunk-themed restaurant that also serves up some monstrously delicious desserts. This is The Toothsome Chocolate Emporium & Savory Feast Kitchen, eatery, drinkery, and confectionery extraordinaire.
You can leave the real world behind for a while and immerse yourself in the steampunk wonders of the Toothsome Chocolate Emporium — a full-service restaurant, bar, and confectionery found at CityWalk Orlando.
Besides the classic steak, seafood, and all-day brunch menu, the thing that Toothsome is probably most famous for is their artisanal milkshakes and sundaes.
These giant sweet desserts can only be described as works of art, overflowing with details of whipped cream, sprinkles, whole pieces of pie, cupcakes, candy, and fruit.
These edible art pieces run between $10 and $13 and are served in huge mason jars. While we won’t tell you how to enjoy your dessert, you may just want to split one between you and a friend, or at least be prepared to pace yourself!
Toothsome Chocolate Emporium is Universal’s first restaurant to have an elaborate backstory with characters.
Penelope Tibeaux-Tinker Toothsome is the founder of the emporium. She and her ever-faithful robot assistant Jacques can be found wandering the restaurant and interacting with guests.
The Emporium is divided into three parts. Upon entering, guests can explore a variety of freshly made and prepacked candies, steampunk merch, and one-of-a-kind Toothsome memorabilia.
The opposite side is where guests can order up those beautiful craft milkshakes and sundaes, and then proceed to the dining hall to take a look at the meal menu. It even looks like a chocolate factory fit for Willy Wonka himself!
The Emporium doesn’t currently take reservations, so you’ll want to get there early to snag your spot, but we totally think the immersive experience is worth the wait — and those milkshakes!
Anyone else as hungry as we are?
