Macarons are the new cupcake. Not the American macaroons made with coconut but the French macaron made with egg whites and ground almonds. Like cupcakes, the flavor possibilities are endless and they make a beautiful presentation. These macarons are from the new bakery La Patisserie from the pastry genius behind the Kitchen Space and Luxe Sweets, Soraiya Nagree.
The building is located at 602 W Annie and they are open Tuesday-Friday, 8am-4pm; Saturday-Sunday, 9am-5pm. Their menu is straight out of Paris with croissants, madelines, palmiers, financier, tarte tatin, opera cake, the list goes on and on. They are even adding sandwiches on fresh baguettes to the line up including brie and apple, prosciutto and gruyere, and Nicoise.
The true stars of the pastry case are the gorgeously hued macarons. With flavors like caramel fleur de sel, cardamom honey orange, and strawberry champagne you are sure to find something that will transport you from Bouldin Creek to the Left Bank.
