If you think the Burger King and Frankenstein’s monster mixture is cool, then you’re going to love what Universal Studios Florida has in store – a cafe exclusively featuring the Universal Monsters! Once you step inside, you’ve been transported into Dr. Frankenstein’s laboratory. Here is where you can order food, such as salads, chicken, pizza, spaghetti, and the like for $6 to $8. Desserts are also available for around $3.

Once your food is ordered, there are a number of themed dining rooms including Dracula’s Mansion, The Bride’s Chamber, The Mummy’s Tomb, the forest of the Wolf Man, The Creature’s Lagoon, and a Spaceship dining area featuring This Island Earth. Each room is decorated to look like that specific movie – Dracula’s Mansion looks like a castle, The Creature’s Lagoon features a Creature figurines in large aquariums, and much more.

A smaller building that offers Universal Monster gifts is connected to the cafe. The Wolf Man, Frankenstein’s monster, and The Creature stand and rotate on top, while they each hold a different food item. So, plan a trip and visit these attractions where any Universal Monster fan is sure to feel like they’ve stepped right into the movies.
