Taste of East Aurora is a charming neighborhood café located in the heart of East Aurora. It is where you will find our newest installation, a three head, cold brewed, nitro infused coffee system.
But to say Taste is only a coffeehouse is like saying Coca-Cola Field only has peanuts. There is so much more to this cute place.
Taste is also a music café. The exposed ceiling inside has at least four speakers mounted playing music. At the time of my weekday visit at 9 am, the easy groove heard was a nice, subtle vibe to the customers who may have been up for a while, or just waking up and strolling over for their cup of joe. Taste also has a long table towards the front of the store where anyone can buy a CD, presumably from some on the musicians that Taste play over their music system.
Taste is set up cafeteria style where you walk in from the left and place your order from the many options on the colorful blackboards behind the counter, then walk single file to the right of the counter and wait for your order to be completed. Some items may take a while to prepare since everything is made fresh, so people can sit any one of the numerous long wooden tables if you’re in a group, or a two-top table if your alone, or perhaps at the front of the store where you can sit and read the morning paper that Taste provides while people watching thru the big picture window as East Aurora residents go about their daily lives in this quaint village.
Some of the breakfast items listed on the blackboard include a “Sunrise Benedict”, and a “Bandito Burrito” All breakfast items that I can see range from $5-9.
Not a breakfast person? Taste also serves up lunch with blackboard items that include the “Millard Fill-Me-More”, paying tribute to the 13th U.S. President who once called East Aurora home. All lunch sandwiches come with a side salad and cost $9.95 across the board. Some of the soup offerings that are available this day at Taste include Nutty Albacore, Hubbard In The Cupboard, and a Soup of the Day.
Taste is also promoting its Lobsterfest which runs May-September and include lobster rolls, cakes, and grilled cheese.
In addition to the nitro infused cold brew that Irish Carbonic installed, beverages of all sorts including lattes, espresso, tea, and frozen drinks are available to enjoy.
Live music on Fridays and Saturday’s in the month of July are listed on a (you guessed it) blackboard near the entrance. You can also enjoy a nice day at Taste outside on any one of their sidewalk table with umbrellas. WiFi is offered free.
Taste Of East Aurora is located at 634 Main St at the corner of Riley. Hours of operation are 7a-10p M-TH, 7a-11p Friday, 8a-11p Saturday and 8a-8p Sunday.
