Dessert | MacarOn Cafe

I made a quick visit to the MacarOn Cafe in the Garment District yesterday--mainly because I was craving macarons like MAD! And also because it's only a few blocks away from work--snack break!

Delicious selection of macarons!

Cute gridlined mini-chalkboards!

The beautiful loot (left to right): lemon, cassis, pistachio, peanut butter, passion fruit / chocolate, and dark chocolate.

I shared these with Marcus in front of my office building. He had a really bad headache, and (I think) these cheered him up a bit! I mean, when doesn't a macaron cheer up someone's day? :D

Findings: Of the six flavors we had tasted, pistachio (they surrounded the macaron filling with crushed pistachios--genius!) was definitely my favorite (Marcus's was lemon). The flavors were very good overall, though I wasn't totally feeling the texture of the macarons. Our previous visit to Madeleine Patisserie (post to follow) certainly comes out on top here. Nevertheless, still a pretty good macaron to satisfy any craving! :]

Price point: 6 macarons at $13.
