Bakery Review: Green Cafe, Marvelous French Macarons

Every day on my walk home from work I pass this cute little French Cafe called The Green Cafe. The macarons in the window and the menu looks great but it's always empty! I went inside one evening, partly out of sympathy and party out of hungry curiosty and I picked up 4 macarons to share with my cousin. They have traditional flavors like chocolate, rasberry and wedding almond and exotic flavors like passion fruit and Earle Gray and lychee. In the picture above we have (clockwise from top left): lavendar, wedding almond (their most famous), Earle Gray and mango. At $2.50 per macaron choose wisely and eat slowly to make it worth it! These French macarons are made with egg whites, almond paste and are gluten free and they have no resembalance to their American relatives (macaroons). If you find yourself in this part of town, definitely make a trip over and try some of their delightful macarons.
