After my visit to Rollbotto I was able to exercise my way to Le Macaron for some sweet treats. Thank you to one of my friend that treated me that night I was able to try 6 different flavors that night. For me it's been a rough path on finding good macarons and I believe these are probably one of the best ones in the area. They were crisp, chewy and flavorful. Macarons always tend to be way too sweet for me but because they are such a delight I didn't mind taking a bite of each one just for a taste.
The owners are also French so you must trust that these are the real deal! It was a little hard to communicate since the french accent was very heavy but we managed to get our 6 flavors to try. I would have to say they weren't the cheapest but I've never seen a "cheap" macaron anywhere in this area before. They are such a delight here that I barely see any around!
There was only one glass display that served macarons while the other display had chocolates and other baked goodies. I would have to say there was about 14 or so different flavors to pick from and since I came in the middle of the night some trays were almost gone. I was able to try salted caramel (very good!), basil (it was surprisingly good), french vanilla, pistachio (I'm a fan), lemon (similar to a lemon bar - not a fan) and raspberry (least fav).
I would def recommend this place, especially if you're looking for a french treat. They now how to make some mean macarons and their flavors are to die for. One is already good enough for me but keeping yourself from taking a bite from each flavor is a challenge!
