- Classic and contemporary cakes and pastries are the stars in this high-end pastry shop where guests can watch pastry chefs decorate signature cakes in the on-stage finishing kitchen. Every item features boutique-style packaging, inspired by old-fashioned hatboxes, lending to the sophisticated feel of the location.
The shop has a rather pleasant interior.
Just like many of the new areas coming to Disney Springs, Amorette’s Patisserie also has an elaborate backstory. Established as one of the first shops in Town Center (circa 1900’s) and passed down through the generations, the patisserie is currently owned by artistic sisters Kara and Sara, where they pour great care into designing and creating the most unique and artistic pastries, since “Amorette” means “little love” in French.
There are a few pre-packaged desserts available as well.
Interestingly enough, the kitchen where the pastries are produced is upstairs, so this beautiful elevator is used to send the goods downstairs to the storefront.
All of the treats in the case are pretty much $8 each, which may sound high, but these are table service restaurant quality desserts, and in some cases far exceed many of those offerings around Walt Disney World in quality and taste. Not pictured are other items such as the cookies and macaroons, which are also available.
What I was most excited about after seeing the first press release was Amorette’s Hot Chocolate Ganache with Chantilly and Shaved Dark Chocolate. I must say, when I received the very tiny espresso-sized cup, I was a bit disappointed, especially at over $5. However, this stuff is fantastic. The whipped cream was very thick and almost hard to break through, but when it mixed with the hot chocolate, it was simply perfect. It’s hard to warrant this at the current price, but the taste makes one hell of an argument.
Everyone’s favorite had to be the Reflections in Memphis. This is a peanut butter mousse topped with fried bananas and bacon that is simply good enough for Elvis to rise from the dead for. We will be back just to have this again. Seriously.
They also serve a selection of Joffrey’s coffee beverages, as well as some champagne and sparkling wines.
The last dessert we had was the Dancing with Pavlova, which is a light raspberry crisp. It wasn’t bad, and if you like raspberry I assume this will be your favorite. It was kind of hard to eat as it is quite large and pretty solid, but otherwise fine.
