Once inside, I decided that I had to try their specialty, something that is very much flavour of the month (year?) at the moment.
Macarons! A long, gorgeous case of ever colour macaron you can imagine! And they come in such lovely packaging, you cannot go into that shop and walk away empty handed.
I've had a couple of macarons in the past, but nothing that really knocked my socks off.
We got a pack of 6.
From left to right we have: hazlenut (which was not red at all, not matter what this photo looks like), salted caramel, raspberry, blueberry and violet, and strawberry and vanilla.
The hazelnut was soooooo good, and the strawberry and vanilla had the most subtle, lovely flavour. The raspberry and strawberry and vanilla ones had a tiny layer of jam in them, which added to the flavour without making them overly sweet.
Best of all, a pack of 6 was only fifteen dollars ($2.50 per macaron).
