Brunch at Aurora in Williamsburg

POST #    2078

Saturday morning, we took a short walk around Williamsburg. Looking for brunch, we happened upon Aurora, which has an awesome backyard garden. I had my eyes on the Nutella doughnut, but it was unavailable. They did, however, have an awesome Nutella croissant. I didn't end up finishing it though as it was insanely rich. While the French toast was also good, I probably shouldn't have had two really sweet dishes in one meal.

you cannot go wrong with that croissant, though i always suffer a massive sugar crash at around 3pm after eating one.

haha - we were there for dinner the night before! did you sit in the garden? we haven't made it to brunch there yet because it's supposedly slow.

margaret - the clothes hide it well.

janelle - it didn't seem too slow. but it was saturday and it wasn't packed or anything.

this is why you go out for meals with SO's - one gets a savory dish, one gets a sweet one, and you split. and even if you don't go with an SO, make a friend go halfsies. :)

(have you had the almond chocolate croissant from almondine in my nabe? also a pastry that can be hard to finish, it's so rich (and good))

but it doesn't help if you don't like their food or they don't like yours.

(and no, i haven't had the almond chocolate croissant)
