La Maison du Macaron

When I visited the city last month, I came across the fabulous La Maison du Macaron shop in the Flatiron district. Funny thing, it wasn't on my agenda, but I happened to walk past on my way elsewhere and had to pop in! Sometimes you have to be willing to adjust your agenda for pop ups such as these. 
When I walked in, the smell was just heavenly! I was very glad I decided to check it out and will be sure to be back again very soon. The decor is adorable and the staff was very friendly as well. 
The menu was quite nice and deciding was quite a hard job 
Everything was presented so lovely and looked yummy 
The French can make pastries like no other country and they look gorgeous  
I think presentation is so important in their pastries just as much as the taste
These eclairs would make my late Aunt very happy and those lemon tarts would make my Mom very happy 
The flavors are quite unique like Rose Lychee Liquor, Apricot Champagne, Lemon Caramel, Nutella Candied Orange 
Another tasty flavor, Spicy Bourbon !!  

I tried these purple beauties and they were so flavorful. 
These would be just amazing to bring home to family and friends. You would not even need to wrap them, they are so pretty on their own. 
They have a great area to site and relax, have a drink and some french macarons. If you are in this area and looking for a rest for the tired feet, give this place a try. French Macarons are quite a delicacy and should be enjoyed by everyone!!

No not yet from what I understand no photos are allowed so how can I show to my readers? I may reach out to management to see if they would allow it for me as some do when you say why you want to take them.
