A Quick Stop: Macaron Café

Gossip Girl fanatics and Parisian lovers unite! Macarons have been my favorite delicate dessert for a long time now, even though for some reason I remember disliking them when I was younger. It is almost like my relationship with coffee blended drinks. I couldn't stand them when I was little, but loved them because they made me feel grown up. Today Starbucks may as well be my middle name as I am latte and frappe obsessed.

There is something so dainty about eating macarons compared to stuffing my face with Oreos. If there are tons of cafes totally dedicated to the luxury treat, that should tell you something about their rising popularity. Macaron Café has multiple locations throughout NYC, but the one that I seem to usually wind up at is the one on 36th St. and 7th Ave. It is a very tiny and quaint store with very pleasant workers. A perfect stop after long meetings and getting through the holiday crowds.

Pictured here is vanilla, espresso, dulce de leche, honey lavender, lychee rose, and one unidentifiable one with the blue filling which I can't remember for my life what it was. They all tasted perfect, without being overly sweet. To me it is so light tasting that it is virtually impossible to feel "guilty" about eating the sweet treat. They can be sold individually or in half-dozen, dozen, or party size trays. I usually get half-dozen for $15 which may sound pricey, but that is honestly the norm for macarons and it isn't something you get on the daily, so why not? 

Other than Macaron Café, there are a ton of other places throughout the city where you can find them. Such as Ladurée which is very popular. Are you also a macaron addict? If so, let me know your top flavors and spots to get them at!


  1. Love macarons! I've only eaten ones with the same filling inside. My favourite one? Don't have it, but I don't like coffee flavoured because I don't drink coffee so that taste isn't for me ;) xx Maja

  2. I've always wanted to try and make some macaroons ♥
