If you want a casual, French-style café experience in Disney World, there are a few options to choose from.
Le Petit Café in Disney’s Riviera Resort and Amorette’s Patisserie in Disney Springs are two notable French-style spots to try, and both have similar vibes with different offerings. If you want to enjoy a coffee and a pastry or even just a unique atmosphere, either spot is a great option, and here’s why you should consider trying Le Petit Café!
Breaking Down the Restaurants
Amorette’s Patisserie is a French-style bakery located in the Town Center area of Disney Springs. It’s Disney owned and operated, and features an onstage decorating kitchen so you can watch the chefs decorate the goodies, including treats like cookies, signature cakes, eclairs, New York-style cheesecake and more.
“Amorette” translates to “little love” in French, and this bakery is famous for its small, carefully crafted Petit Cakes. Amorette’s also features coffees and alcoholic beverages, like wine slushies, and they’re open for lunch and dinner from Noon to 11 p.m. daily.
Le Petit Café
Le Petit Café is located in Disney’s Riviera Resort, and it’s styled after Parisian French cafes. Open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m., guests can enjoy coffee and pastries in the morning, and a wine bar with hors d’oerves in the evening.
Le Petit Café was named after a French café in the 1970 classic Disney animated film The Aristocats, and in addition to serving oven-fresh baked goods, it also serves specialty cocktails in the evenings!
If you’re into French-style dining without having to go to Europe, either of these spaces will be fun for you. At Amorette’s, you’ll find a charming and quaint look with high ceilings and warm wooden beams, along with artistic references throughout the space.
There are lots of delicious goodies, which you can watch being prepared.
You can also see chefs carefully designing treats like the famous Petit Cakes.
And the counter is filled with delicious fresh cakes and pastries.
It’s not Disney World without a fictional backstory, and Amorette’s story is that after opening in the 1900s, this family-owned patisserie has been passed down through generations, down to the current ownership of the artistic sisters Kara and Sara.
As a nod to Kara and Sara’s artistry, there are artistic references all over Amorette’s, like this display of paints and brushes.
In terms of seating, you’ll find tables and chairs and also taller tables where guests can stand and enjoy their treats.
Outside, you can grab a table under a pergola for some shade.
So visit Amorette’s to get fresh baked goods, whether you prefer pastries or cakes!
Le Petit Café
Le Petit Café is located near the lobby of the Riviera Resort, which features designs inspired by the French and Italian Riviera.
Le Petit Café resembles a Parisian-style café, with simple decor, a bright interior, and tiled floors.
The design is a combination of light and dark color contrasts, and there’s cozy indoor seating.
Inside, you’ll find a cooler filled with fresh pasta, cheeses…
…and wine, of course.
The Riviera Resort as a whole is based on Walt Disney’s love for Europe, and you can also take your coffee or wine and treats to the nearby Voyageurs’ Lounge, where you’ll find a vintage Disney aesthetic with more seating.
Le Petit Café has two unique indoor seating areas with cozy chairs for relaxing while sipping your coffee OR wine.
