Located on the corner of the Broadbeach Meriton Buidling, this quaint little patisserie and cafe produces quality pastries, cakes and desserts, equaling the cafes that I have been fortunate enough to visit whilst in Paris.
I normally buy my usual pain au chocolat, however on this occasion, my partner decided we should try one of their pretty macarons. Before Masterchef, I had never even heard of the things...let alone tasted one but here before us was a tempting range of macarons ranging in pretty pastel colours and delicious flavours. They definitely seem to be the new and preferred sweet treat.
We chose a blueberry and a strawberry and vanilla (pictured below) macaron on this occasion but have since tried most of the other flavours, the blueberry being my favourite.
The macaron itself is a layer of silky smooth flavoured filling sandwiched between two moist almond meringues encased in a light dainty crust. The macaron was chewy, with a deceivingly delicate crust that simply melts in your mouth. It is not an overly sweet dessert; and is therefore perfect as an after lunch take home treat. And at a cost of only $2.00, how can you resist?
