The Wizarding World of Harry Potter – Diagon Alley is officially open for business at Universal Studios Orlando!

Exploring this magical area can work up a bit of an appetite, so to help you navigate the best places to eat and drink, here’s a guide to where you can dine like a real Wizard on your visit to Diagon Alley:

The Leaky Cauldron

Food at the Leaky Cauldron

Where else would you head for a bite to eat in Diagon Alley other than the Leaky Cauldron?

Feast on authentic British pub favourites such as Bangers and Mash, Toad in the Hole, Cottage Pie and Fish and Chips. Smaller versions of these dishes are also available on the children’s menu so there’s no need for younger Witches and Wizards to miss out!

Make sure you save room for after as you won’t want to miss indulging on one of the Leaky Cauldron’s delicious desserts. Choose from Chocolate Potted Cream, Cranachan and sticky Toffee Pudding.

Drinks at the Leaky Cauldron

Wash down your meal at the Leaky Cauldron with a refreshing beverage. This magical menu features drinks you may remember from the series, including the ever popular Butterbeer and new creations Gillywater and Pumpkin juice.

Draught beers on offer include Wizard’s Brew and Dragon Scale, or if you’re after something a bit softer go for a glass of Peachtree Fizzing Tea, Otter’s Fizzy Orange Juice or Tongue Tying Lemon Squash.

Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour

Treat your sweet tooth to a scoop of delicious ice cream from Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour!

With a wide range of weird and wonderful flavours, from Sticky Toffee Pudding to Apple Crumble and Chocolate Chilli you’ll be spoilt for choice. There’s even a Butterbeer flavour!

Florean Fortescue’s also serves breakfast pastries throughout the morning (just in case ice cream isn’t you thing!) along with tea and water.

Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment

Make your way to Horizont Alley (located just off Diagon Alley) and you’ll find the Eternelle’s Elixir of Refreshment stand – a whole new magical drinking experience!

Mix one of the brightly coloured elixirs available from the stand into a bottle of Gillywater, then watch it transform into a whole new drink. Choose your elixir carefully as each one does something completely different. The elixirs currently available include draught of Peace, Babbling Beverage and Fire Protection Potion – Which will you choose?

Street Vendors

Look out for Street Vendors as you’re wandering the streets of Diagon Alley as these stands will be offering up a selection of sweet treats to keep hunger at bay. You’ll also find beverages to suit every Wizards taste – including Butterbeer and Pumpkin juice!
