The best food at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter
If you’re planning a Universal Orlando vacation and looking for the best food at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, you won’t want to miss this! Here are the 10 best things to eat at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Now, let me tell you that if you have any allergies or are vegan, the Wizarding World won’t have as many options for you! That said, I do have a post about vegan food at Universal, and I will note whenever foods are allergy-friendly or vegan here as well. I’ll also share links to menus for the Wizarding World restaurants.
Just know that the majority of vegan and allergy-friendly food at Universal is found outside of the Wizarding World. However, we are starting to see more vegan options in the Wizarding World such as the vegan pasty mentioned below!
If this is your first visit to the Wizarding World, you’re going to love it! Make sure to check out our First Timer Tips for the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
**NEW! Don’t miss NEW Vegan food at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.
Muggle Tip, rent a car for your Universal vacation
You’ll definitely need a rental car if you’re flying into Orlando. I recommend renting a car from Discount USA Car Rental. They have the best prices, and you don’t have to pay until you pick it up!
Discount USA Rental Cars doesn’t rent flying cars or broomsticks yet, but maybe in the future. 😉 Now, let’s get to the best Wizarding World food.
Wizarding World food
Ah, Butterbeer. You can’t miss this iconic Harry Potter treat (unless you’re vegan or allergic to dairy, in which case I recommend the Pumpkin Juice!) There are several varieties of Butterbeer including regular, warm, frozen, ice cream, potted cream, fudge, and sometimes more!
Since it is a trademarked drink, you can’t order it without the topping (which is what contains dairy.) This iconic Wizarding World beverage is easily one of the most popular treats at Universal Orlando, and also one of the most Instagrammable.

2. Fish & Chips
Three Broomsticks offers this classic option with beer-battered cod and a side of fries (or as they say across the pond, chips.) You can also get this meal at The Leaky Cauldron.
This simple classic is a popular choice and a great meal if you want something quickly.
3. Chocolate Frog
There’s nothing like a Chocolate Frog on a hot summer day. Just kidding. But seriously, you should know that these things melt fast. We just found out that Universal debuted a dark chocolate frog, which we are hoping is a dairy free option!
These are certainly an iconic Wizarding World treat, and they come with collectible cards like the ones used in the Harry Potter movies.
4. Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour Beans
Do you want to try a jelly bean and have no idea whether it’s apple or vomit flavored? If you said “yes,” then Bertie Bott’s Every-Flavour beans are for you! My kids think these are so fun, and I think they are absolutely disgusting.
Some of the flavors include lemon, earwax, watermelon, black pepper, and more! You never know what you’re going to get, so proceed with cautious.
Shopping for candy at Honeydukes is a must!
5. Bangers and Mash
This British class can also be found at the Three Broomsticks or The Leaky Cauldron, it consists of sausage, mashed potatoes and peas covered in gravy and sautéed onions.
6. Pumpkin Juice
Now you might know that I can’t have gluten and avoid dairy, so Pumpkin juice just happens to be my favorite thing on this list of best food at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. It’s a tasty apple juice with just the right amount of pumpkin – not too much.
You can find this beverage at the Hopping Pot or just about anywhere else in Diagon Alley. The carts sell the plastic bottle but you can also order it in a cup.
7. Beef Pasties
When you walk up to the Hopping Pot in the corner of Diagon Alley, you’re likely ordering a Butterbeer, Fishy Green Ale, or another beverage. However, this location also serves up beef pasties.
The buttery crust and savory beef makes the perfect snack. Pair with a Fishy Green Ale for a fun snack. This drink didn’t quite make the list of the best food in the Wizarding World, but it’s definitely one you have to try at least once
8. Traditional English Breakfast
One of the most popular options at the Three Broomsticks, the Traditional English Breakfast includes farm fresh eggs, sausage links, baked beans, grilled tomato, black pudding, English bacon, sautéed mushrooms, and breakfast potatoes.
Pair it with a pumpkin juice or Butterbeer to start your day in true Wizarding World fashion!
9. Shepherd’s Pie
Found at the Three Broomsticks, Shepherd’s Pie is another traditional English dish. The dish consists of lamb and vegetables and is covered in mashed potatoes.
Fortunately for those who don’t eat meat (myself included!) there’s even a brand-new vegan pasty in The Wizarding World. Found at Magic Neep Cart, you can order a vegan shepherd’s pasty pie.
This new dish consists of meatless beef crumbles and vegetable stew hand pie. It is served with stone ground mustard dipping sauce, apple beet salad, and wedge fries. You can also find it at the Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley.
10. Cauldron Cake
Served in a reusable silicone cauldron (should you ever need a cauldron again), the Cauldron Cake is one of the Wizarding World’s most Insta-worthy snacks! This snack is available Honeydukes in Hogsmeade and Sugarplums Sweet Shop in Diagon Alley.
These are just a few options for the best food at the Wizarding world of Harry Potter. For current pricing and dining options, you can check out the menus online. Here is the menu for the Leaky Cauldron and Three Broomsticks menu.
