The mignardises are seasonal at Aurora, so depending on the time of year you dine there, you’ll be presented with a treat that will feel appropriate to the weather and any particular holiday. Expect something along the lines of a tiny fruit tart, homemade almond cookies, miniature cannolli or profiterole. Forbes Travel Guide editors especially loved the pastel-colored French macarons as an after dinner treat. When they were at Aurora, they also enjoyed several chocolates served on long sticks. Even though you might be totally full, these chocolates and the other mignardises will prove irresistible to sample as you wait for the bill.
In addition to delectable desserts, Aurora also offers petit fours and mignardises for our guests to choose from. These little bites are seasonal, so it’s best to speak with your server during your meal to learn about the most recent additions to the menu. Depending on the time of year you visit, you might find seasonal treats such as Sicilian cannoli, macaroons, marshmallows, homemade almond cookies, fruit tarts and a caprese tart. The petit fours and mignardises served are the perfect size if you don’t want a full size dessert but still need that sweet sensation at the end of your meal.
