Macaron Sweeterie, worth a visit


I drove by this shop many times on my way to Wilson Farms and I always thought it might make a cute tearoom.  It was vacant for a bit but now it has a tenant.



The sign outside made me investigate.  I love macarons!



Nice decor, clean, all of their offerings listed on a menu.  So far so good.
The owner ( I assume she was the owner) smiled and asked if she could help me.


I looked at the menu and then I spied these little pieces of heaven.  So colorful and delightfully diplayed. I contemplated all of the flavors. While I was thinking, a woman and two young boys entered the shop. "This is the best place ever!" exclaimed one of the boys.

Ok, after hearing that proclaimation I went for the six pack of macarons. I stayed with the safe flavors. I am not very adventurous but I don't care. Dark chocolate, espresso, lemon, caramel du sel, and 2 vanillas.


Another view of the showcase. At Macaron Sweeterie, you can also get gelato and cappucinos, mochas,etc.  They even have a macalato which is a macaron shell filled with gelato, your choice.

I opted to save the box of macarons for later and I ordered a mocha.  Not quite a European drinking chocolate but almost as rich and much lighter.  Oh my, I will need to go back for one of those again.
It really was the best I ever had.  The little boy was right! This is the best place ever!


Over the weekend, I enjoyed my macarons and I loved them so much I did not share.  Not a single one!

If you find yourself on  Massachusetts Ave in Lexington, you need to stop in.  You will not be disappointed.

Lexington, hmmm... I wonder how far away from me that is? I've always wanted to try those macaroons but I've never actually seen them in person! What a fantastic discovery, Elaine!

I just might take a spin over to Lexington and check out this shop. I haven't been to Lexington in a while.

Well that place looks like a find - I'm impressed with the lovely colours of the macarons. I'm busy renovating my kitchen and cannot wait to make some Halloween ones... I wonder what the flavours should be? I will check to see if this place has a website, did you have a link? xo
