omg!! A--mazing

tried to so many of their macaroons and I wish I got more, their vanilla, pistachio and coffee are delicious. They were fresh and crunchy on the outside and just the right chewy/soft inside, just perfect. Even better than some I had in Paris!

The macarons were delicious (even the flavors I thought I wouldn't like) and the girl that helped us was super patient and sweet. I noticed they had some yummy looking sauces and concoctions in little jars, but forgot to take a closer look so I will be back for them next time I'm in Montreal! I wish they were open... More

perfect to drop in, pick up a box of your favourite flavours and take home for a treat. It's not really a sit-down cafe, but it is certainly well designed and welcoming.

OK, not really a restaurant. For the macarons lovers though, especially gluten-free types, this is a must go to place. Located in old Montreal, on Plateau Royal, it is great to go to in when weather is good - nice neighbourhoods to stroll thru, to get to THE place. Winter time will be tough - Montreal tends to be cold.... More

We enjoy the ambience, makarons and ice-cream. All fine, reasonably priced, absolutely worth a visit if you like makarons.

They were excellent, though some flavors a bit too sweet. Large selection of interesting flavors. They also varied in texture more than macarons typically do. That being said, they were not as expensive as I am used to for macarons (a box of 10 was $15, whereas in NYC at Laduree it's almost double this).

We were referred to Point G by a Montreal local, who told us these were the best macarons she had ever had. And she was absolutely right. It's about a 10 minute walk from the closest metro stop, and totally worth the trip. We got 20 macarons for $28 - which were packed in a plastic container and a box,... More

Selection was big, and we personally tried about ten different flavors. The store is all about macaroons, and that is what we were looking for. I did not care for boxes the macaroons were packed. They looked cheep. I do not care for the name of the store either. It looks more like sex shop from outside, than a pastry... More

Super fun, colourful little dessert shop, with the best-tasting macaroons. So many flavours to choose from, you won't be disappointed. A little pricey if you buy many, but don't let this stop you!

Great macarons, the chocolate one is to die for. 6 units for 10 dollars. It´s not cheap but they are really high quality so is worth it.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
