Whether you start in Hogsmeade or Diagon Alley, you can experience a magical culinary journey in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter!

There are a lot of delicious options throughout The Wizarding World of Harry Potter, which is home to two full-service restaurants (the Three Broomsticks in Hogsmeade and the Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley), sweets and snacks at places like Honeydukes and Florean Fortescue’s Ice-Cream Parlour, and plenty of spots to grab Butterbeer.

With so many yummy options to choose from, you’ll definitely want a couple of days in the wizarding world to try it all. Don’t know where to start? We’ll help you with the first day and then you plan the next one! Below you’ll find some of our favorite food options from around the two lands, starting your day in Hogsmeade at Universal Islands of Adventure and ending it in Diagon Alley at Universal Studios Florida.

Pumpkin Juice makes for a refreshing drink to hold you over until lunch and keep you cool as you head to your next adventure. Maybe a trip to the Forbidden Forest on Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure?

What better delicacy to tip toward the castle than the mysterious pumpkin-flavoured No Melt Ice Cream? Every bite stays fluffy and creamy as you wait for the train to head to Diagon Alley!

The best way to make your way to Diagon Alley is by taking the Hogwarts Express from Hogsmeade Station. Since you will be heading to another park, you’ll want to make sure you have a two-park ticket handy, which will be scanned before making your way to the platform.

Once you’ve made it into Diagon Alley, you’ll find the main restaurant just to your left, the Leaky Cauldron. After an adventurous trip, you must be hungry for dinner!

5. Fish & Chips at the Leaky Cauldron

Don’t forget to end your dinner with a proper dessert. A mason jar full of Butterbeer Potted Cream is sure to please every Butterbeer enthusiast. Butterbeer Potted Cream is essentially a creamy custard with that delicious Butterbeer flavor.

7. Butterbeer from The Fountain of Fair Fortune

Diagon Alley makes for the perfect evening stroll and is even better with a drink in hand. Swing by The Fountain of Fair Fortune for both non-alcoholic and alcoholic varieties, including a mug of cold Butterbeer (non-alcoholic).

Pro-Tip: Looking for more Butterbeer throughout the day? You can also find it at The Hopping Pot and Leaky Cauldron in Diagon Alley and Three Broomsticks and Butterbeer carts in Hogsmeade.

8. Say Goodnight with a Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes Skiving Snack Box

    Hi, do you know if the potted butter beer is gluten free?

    I am British and never in my 41 years have I seen a ‘traditional English breakfast’ look anything like that! ‘Traditional English breakfast’ will be any of the following: egg, bacon (not thin streaky stuff), baked beans, mushrooms, tamatoes, toast, and maybe fried bread, black pudding, and hash browns.

    Why there are roasted potatoes, croissants, ham, and something else on that plate? The only thing right is the scrambled egg (which is usaully more likely to be fried egg), and beans (I think that’s what they are).
