Amorette's overview
Posted: Wednesday May 18, 2016 12:25pm EDT by WDWMAGIC Staff

Walt Disney World has a new destination for dessert lovers, Amorette’s Patisserie, part of the new Town Center district of Disney Springs.

Following in the same footsteps as The Landing's Ganachery, Amorette’s offers high-end pastry creations that are sure to please anyone with a sweet tooth.

Meaning “little love” in French, Amorette’s can be found just outside the World of Disney store in the Town Center.

Stepping inside you immediately realize that the place is serious about their craft, everything about the interior oozes quality.

From the lavish side LED lit refrigerated display cases, to the smartly attired chefs, to the onstage kitchen - you know it is going to be good, but with a price tag to match.

Your visit to the Disney owned and operated Amorette’s begins at the open kitchen, where you can see Disney pastry chefs decorating and finishing the pastries.

A display pedestal shows some of the more elaborate menu items, including the 11 layer house specialty.

Moving past the kitchen, your next stop is at the display cases, where you can see exactly what is on offer.

The Amorette's menu isn’t large, but each item on offer has been meticulously thought out and produced. Most individual items are priced at around $8. View menu.

There are multiple cases, with several cast members on hand to guide you through the selections. Like their fellow chocolatiers at The Ganachery, they are knowledgable about the product and happy to make recommendations.

From the individual sizes, our favorite was the 49th and Broadway/N.Y. Cheesecake, with Lemon Curd, Blueberries, and Chantilly. Unlike most cheesecake it was light and refreshing, perfect for a hot Florida day.

Other notable items include the Sunset on Mile Marker 0, which is a Key Lime Meringue, and the Strawberry Fields of OC, with a Strawberry Mousse, Basil Sugar, and Lemon Curd.

The desserts are certainly not cheap, and should not be compared to your typical bakery. They are a step above what you can find at Epcot’s France Pavilion, and are more like what you would find at a high-end table service restaurant.

Each selected item is carefully placed onto a gold tray and then escorted over to the cash register for payment and any beverage selections.

Beverages include Coffee, Champagne and Amorette’s Hot Chocolate Ganache, a cupful of sippable chocolate with Chantilly and shaved dark chocolate on top.

Amorette’s also offers larger cakes, including the house specialty 11 layer cake, available in a full size and mini version. There are also Mickey and Minnie Dome Cakes. Custom cakes are also available for ordering beginning May 22 with 72 hours notice, at 407-934-3500.

Besides the refrigerated items, there are also a variety of freshly made pre-packaged baked goods, including the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookie, priced at 3 for $10, and Macarons, at 6 for $15.

While not a sit-down restaurant, there are a couple of standing tables and a couple of seats, with more tables and seats available outside.

It is clear that Disney has aimed high with Amorette’s to create a destination patisserie that stands above the competition, and it succeeded.

If beautifully hand-crafted desserts appeal to you, this will be a must do. Although initially it may appear expensive, the offerings are very comparable to high end restaurant desserts which are often priced higher.

Amorette’s Patisserie is open daily from 10am to midnight.

Like all WDWMAGIC dining reviews, all food was paid for by the reviewers and was not part of any promotional visit.

Just stopped by for a second time at Disney Springs to check this place out and oh my God if you haven't been you need to go....whenever you visit the resort of course. I didn't want to do anything crazy so I played safe and got the cheesecake. It was sweet but not to sweet to where you didn't feel like you could finish it. Honestly they have alot of good choices here and I expect myself to be back....a lot

Because good pastries focus on flavor and not the sugar factor :)

Very good. Got the Sunrise Tokyo Bay and the Opera. To me these cakes seem to emphasize the flavors without being overly sweet.

How'd they taste? The cakes look delicious!! I bought the 3 for $10 chocolate chip cookies - good price, ok taste.

Picked up a few cakes today. The customer service here is top notch.

I visited on Friday night. I really enjoyed it. Its very entertaining while on line because you get to watch the pastry chefs work on decorating the cakes. We were greeted near the door by a cast member who explained the process to us and pointed out the dumbwaiter and explained that everything was baked onsite upstairs. Since it was quite busy, we had to wait on line a bit. When we got to the order taking section, we were helped by a cast member who took us to a counter section that had all the cakes available in it. He asked us what our favorite flavors are and then he recommended some of the selections based on our responses. I got a cheesecake, and my boyfriend got the key lime pie. Both were excellent. After the CM puts your order on a tray, you move to the next station, the registers, to give any drink orders and pay. If you just want some to go stuff that they have you can head straight to the registers. They have a few standing tables to eat at inside, and there are some patio tables and chairs outside. We stood inside to eat, since a table had opened up right after we paid. It is quite echoy noisy in the building. Outside would have been nicer but it was busy so I didn't want to miss out on the obvious quick table grab. I will definitely visit again, though it will be a debate now between cakes or ice cream. :)

REVIEW - Amorette's Patisserie at Disney Springs

jaklgreenMay 18, 2016

That is what I was thinking when I read the post. But maybe roj2323 does not understand some of the terms like chiffon, or pate de fruit. Basically all they are is cake with filling Except the pavlova, which is a meringue. I think that they are pretty well described but I bake so I know what all of that means. A quick google search on your phone could help you or you can ask at the counter. They cant possible list every single ingredient, after all when you get a cake it just says cake, not flour, eggs, etc. A lot of people, especially those that are not foodies, are afraid to try something if it sounds "too fancy". I live in the midwest and most of the people here are like that and turn their nose up at what they do not know. They think scones are fancy. I believe that a person should try everything at least once in their lives. These pastries are little works of art and more often then not are super delicious. Unless you have allergies, then pick one and enjoy. The worst thing that can happen is that it is not your favorite and so you do not get it again.

What am I missing? The items are displayed under glass in all their yummy glory with descriptions of each item directly behind them...allergy notes are included as well.

roj2323May 18, 2016

Descriptions telling me what's in each item is important to me.
