“Great food with an Amazing Variety of Baked Goods”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I have always loved Aurora Provisions for it's delicious food, sandwiches and soups, but feel it deserves a special shout out for it's unique selection of sweets and baked goods. I have big sweet tooth and usually rush out looking for baked goods in whatever city I am in and Aurora has a stand out selection. Try the pistachio/lemon cookies or the cardamon bars or the orange white chocolate cookie or the chocolate ganache laced rice krispy treats....you get the idea.

“A delightful cafe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Truly a neighborhood eatery. I had the Borsht and a Caesar Wrap and both were excellent. I've been craving the soup ever since, but alas, I'm miles and miles away! Also bought some beautiful note cards created by a local artist.

This small West End eatery packs a big punch. It offers a lovely array of choices for lunch and the atmosphere is relaxed and welcoming.
