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.
