REVIEW - Amorette's Patisserie at Disney Springs

May 18, 2016 in "Amorette's Patisserie"

Amorette's overview

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.
