I love sweets! I have had a love affair with anything chocolate my entire life. I enjoy any kind of dessert, cakes, pastries, you name it I love it. But chocolate is my Achilles heel. This has made for a lifetime struggle with my weight. But when you walk into a place like Amorette’s it is very hard not to be taken in by the smells and tantalizing sights and forget all about dieting.
The shop is inviting and bright. The inside of the shop is air conditioned, so it is a refreshing experience in the warm weather of Florida. The décor is minimal because all the attention is on the food. There are tables inside and out if you just can’t wait to eat your treats. If you are looking for lunch Amorette’s may not be the best place to choose but they do have some savory crepes that are amazing. The beverages range from non-alcoholic to specialized coffees. There are plenty of choices for everyone.
Have you ever wanted to decorate like a professional? Amorette’s gives you that opportunity. You can sign up to decorate a Character cake with the help of one of their many talented pastry chefs. They offer a ninety-minute class that is limited to just twelve people. The glass gives you a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be a Disney pastry chef. During the class your instructor will not only guide you through the decorating, but you will give insider stories and lots of helpful tips.
In the front of the shop there is an open area where you can watch one or more of the chefs decorate a few of the desserts offered. You can watch a chef finish off one of the Mickey Mouse cakes or torch the Crème Brulee. It is fun and inviting and you can ask the chefs questions if you want. If you have a special event such as an anniversary, birthday or any other celebration you can pre-order one of the specialty cakes as well. They have Petit Cakes, Character Cakes and Signature Cakes that you can take home. Each pastry is done with excellence. If it’s true that you eat with your eyes then this is the ultimate experience.
Most of the time there is a waiting line at Amorette’s. If you choose the right time of day you may only have to wait a few minutes, or it could be a half an hour or more. Is it worth the wait? Is the food really that good? You can find out for yourself, but for me the answer is YES!
