Mad for Macarons

Thursday, June 10, 2010
If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you know that I love macarons...a lot. So when I saw the feature in the most recent issue of Aeroplan's Arrival magazine about macarons, I knew I had to check out their list of the Best Macarons in Canada.

Bobbette & Belle - Toronto

558 Jones Ave

Bobbette & Belle macaron tower

More than just macarons, Bobbette & Belle is also a bakery. While their cakes look delicious, it's the towers of macarons that are the most eye-catching.

Nadege - Toronto

780 Queen St. West

A new place - so new that the website isn't even up and running. But, apparently they have mojito macaons. MOJITO!

La Maison du Macaron - Montreal

4479 rue de La Roche

They have 17 different flavours of macarons. The website is in all French, but some of their new flavours include Grapefruit, Cassis and Baileys.

Yann Haute Patisserie - Calgary

329 23rd Ave. SW

Calgary. Who knew? Yann Haute only opened earlier this year, but they have amazing flavours like Morello Cherry and Peanut Butter (!!!).

Unfortunately no Vancouver places were mentioned. But that's OK. We have Say See Bon to tide us over in the meantime!

Thanks for the shout out. Glad to hear you love these bite-sized treats as much as I do!

I enjoy the Ganache ones too, especially the coffee flavour.

I retweeted this post as soon as I saw it. Then my coworker checked it out. I think plans are percolating to check out Say See Bon's macarons at one of the West End Farmer's Markets.

I hope we get our own macaron place soon although I bet the collective waistlines of Vancouver females will increase a bit as a result!

You need to visit France. I had some amazing ones in Paris, but where I live in Rennes there are THE best macaroons in the world!!!
