This place is only a few minutes walk from where I'm living at the moment. Want the best Macron this side of the 1st meridian? Perhaps your buzzing in from Japan, on on a hitch from Turkey.... take a walk through the 'real' Parisian streets, take in a few macaroon and enjoy life.... maybe i'll see you there.

During our visit to Paris, we went to both Pierre Herme and Laduree. Both are well known for their tasty Macarons. While we spend 15 minutes in the line for Laduree, for Macarons that had a similar taste as any random bakery in Paris, we had no line at all at Pierre Herme, and the taste was original and delicious!...

Out of curiosity (because of the great reviews by locals in Paris) we ventured on a rainy day to look for a store and found one along avenue de l'opera without the long lines. It was definitely worth the long walk and getting wet because the fillings were so rich and creamy they practically melt in your mouth. Our favorites... More

I had to try the Macarons I had heard so much about. I tried them all over Paris at multiple bakeries. These were definitely the best. Not only that, they had by far the largest and most original flavor selections. YUMMY. Yes, they were the most expensive ones we ate on the trip. But it was worth it for one... More

After doing a side by side comparison of Laduree and Pierre Herme, I think the winner in my mind goes to Pierre Herme. And this is after doing a fairly deep assessment (6 from Laduree, 7 from Pierre Herme).

 What makes Pierre Herme different? I honestly think I see the biggest difference in the flavours, fillings they create, and the... More

In trying to figure out which is the best macaroon in Paris, we tried both Pierre Herme and Laduree. every time we have visited Paris we end up at Laduree, and never venture the line at Pierre Herme. On Bastille Day, there was no line so we tried Pierre Herme. The Laduree macaroon is less sweet and has less ganache... More

In my Paris research I learned of macarons. NOT the coconut macaroons that I was familiar with. I'd read from several TA contributors, that the macarons here at Pierre Herme were better than their rivals. So, I set out to see if there was any truth to it. Yes!!! After having a very 'delicious' rival treat, these I would describe... More

The service was the best (pleasant, helpful, patient in English), the shop was elegant yet accessible and we didn't feel isolated, and the macaroons were the. Best. Ever. Try that vanilla olive oil nor.... Crazy flavour combos (coconut lime cilantro? Yum!), but soooooo perfect.

Wow. More codices of macaron than Laduree. Try their ice cream sitting on the steps of or a bench near the Eglise Saint Sulpice around the corner. The ice cream is full of the macarons. Try the Citron of the special Montant lime.
