Earl of Sandwich pop-up shop coming to Downtown Disney

The fan-favorite Earl of Sandwich will return to Downtown Disney with a pop-up sandwich shop in the former La Brea Bakery location that will eventually be demolished to make way for a new Porto’s bakery in the outdoor shopping mall next to Disneyland.

Earl of Sandwich will return to Downtown Disney in February, according to the Disney Parks Blog.

A new Porto’s Bakery & Eatery serving Cuban sweets and treats will eventually be built on the footprint of the La Brea Bakery location near the esplanade between Disneyland and Disney California Adventure.

La Brea Bakery announced it was exiting the restaurant business on Monday, Jan. 9 after more than two decades of operation as one of the original businesses in Downtown Disney.

Earl of Sandwich will have grab-and-go options while Earl of Sandwich Tavern will offer table service dining in the former La Brea Bakery location at Downtown Disney.

Disneyland Resort President Ken Potrock announced in April 2022 that an Earl of Sandwich pop-up location was coming to Downtown Disney between the former ESPN Zone and the former Rainforest Cafe.

Disneyland worked with the Orlando, Florida,-based sandwich franchise on a pop-up location at Downtown Disney as a short-term solution to temporarily satisfy fans of the beloved sandwich shop.

The Earl of Sandwich restaurant was torn down in February 2022 along with AMC Theatre, Starbucks West and Sugarboo and Co. as part of the renovation of the west end of Downtown Disney.
