Macaron Cafe

As much as I love the macarons at Ladurée, sometimes you just have to mix it up...

Also, Ladurée closes early (7pm) which means it's hard to make it there in time after work. Macaron Cafe on the other hand, stays open until 8pm.

As compared to Ladurée, their macarons are a little bit larger, a little less sweet and with more subtle  flavors, and a little more dense in consistency/texture

(The flavors I chose were -from left to right- Mandarin Orange, Dark Chocolate, Rose Lychee, Pistachio, Creme Brulee, and Coconut)

These differences aren't necessarily bad... just different

It's a good option for an after-work treat (especially for those of us who don't work 9-5), and doesn't kill your paycheck as much as too many visits to Ladurée

Overall rating: 8/10
