Macaron Cafe opened a new location during the summer. It is dangerously close to Japan Society and depending on the rhythm of the lights, between Grand Central and JS, I end up walking past it all the time. Finally had to stop in. Picked up a box of 6 macarons to give them a try.
I enjoyed the crunch and the texture. But I can only give them 4 out of 5 stars unfortunately. There is sweet and then there is sickeningly sweet. If you are a sugar baby give these a go, but for my palette I wish the filling was just a bit more subtle. The mocha is by far my favorite of the bunch. So given the convenient location, I might just have to grab a couple when school starts back up again in September.
They also pride themselves on their Joe. I have a favorite NYC Starbucks location… but if in a pinch might give their coffee a try next time I stop by.
How about you? What is your favorite macaron flavor?
