Aurora Breakfast, Bar & Backyard
Location: Plaza District, OKC
So there's a new breakfast/brunch place in town! I was immediately excited! Aurora Breakfast Bar & Backyard is located in the Plaza District & it couldn't be cuter! When I walked in, I immediately felt welcomed! Some of you may think, "duh" but some places feel hectic and rushed. The staff here gave nothing but positive vibes. Aurora prides themselves on getting EVERYTHING local.
I was in the mood to have something sweet so I decided to try their banana pancakes served with either fresh fruit, sausage or bacon. Seriously, no lie, the BEST banana pancakes I have ever had. The side of fruit included fresh strawberries, blueberries & mango. I know I rave about all the places I have brunched at before, but it was truly great. Of course you can't go to a breakfast bar without getting a taste of their coffee. I went with the chai tea latte. FIRE.
So, now here are some quick facts based on my first experience at Aurora.The price ranges from $5-13 which I think is reasonable considering the quality & quantity of food you are getting. The overall atmosphere is cozy & laid back. They are open 7 days a week and close at 2 on the weekdays & at 3 on the weekends. I went on a Sunday around 9 and was able to be seated immediately. We didn't have to wait long at all for our food to come out.
Overall, I can't wait to try more of what Aurora has to offer and maybe enjoy the "backyard" when it's a little warmer outside! If you haven't tried it yet, you must!
