April 6, 1990 – The Blue Ribbon Bakery Opens
“If you need an afternoon pick-me-up, head to Blue Ribbon Bakery on Main Street, U.S.A., for an iced coffee or mocha (you can add a white chocolate macadamia nut cookie, that’s up to you).”
On April 6, 1990, the Blue Ribbon Bakery opened on Disneyland’s Main Street. The quick service bakery replaced the Sunkist Citrus House, which closed in early 1989 after opening in 1960. The bakery specialized in specialty pastries and coffee, including the Matterhorn Macaroon and the Soundsational Cupcake. In 1997, the bakery was moved to the location of the former Carnation Ice Cream Parlor; on January 5, 2012, the Blue Ribbon Bakery was officially closed, with its space being used as an expansion for the Carnation Café. Pastry lovers are now able to go to Jolly Holiday Bakery on Main Street.
