Macaron by Patisse

I have a new favorite place: Macaron by Patisse. This sweet shop is run by a brother-sister team who are so incredibly passionate about their business. You can always find one of them at the front counter eager to help you make a decision. With only a small staff of 10, they create 22 flavors of macarons fresh each day. Be sure to go early, because when they’re gone, they’re gone.

The cappuccino dark chocolate macarons have ground espresso beans in the shell. Each new flavor I tried instantly became my favorite.

macaron 3That’s right, my friends, fig & goat cheese. Macaron by Patisse is the first to come up with such a concoction in macaron form. Inspired by Sukaina’s favorite pizza, the fig & goat cheese macaron was born. It sounds so odd, but you must go try one! A fig & goat cheese macaron with a glass of bubbly is all the rage at dinner parties thanks to this inventive sweet boutique. Torn on what to serve your gluten-free guests during cocktail hour? Problem solved.

PS- Macaron by Patisse is offering two special holiday flavors: pumpkin spice and eggnog. Happy Thanksgiving!
