Macaroon Heaven

We visited this place as our Walking Melbourne tour. We focussed on the Macaroons. The owners learnt their trade in Paris and offer one of the best Macaroon places in the city. If you crave the best then try La Belle Miette.

Feeling spontaneous so I drag my friends to have an elegant afternoon tea with me at a French macaron patisserie. The French tea tastes really good & the macaron are delicately divine. The lavender flavour is spot-on, not overly sweet but a light lavender taste. My friend loves the earl grey macaron. I love this place! 被我瞄到了一間法式馬卡龍茶店,所以拉了朋友進來喝法國花茶和吃甜點。茶帶著淡淡的花香,跟小巧的馬卡龍還真搭配。 這茶喝起來很順囗,所以買了一盒回家孝敬。聽說在法國是老字號,所以價格貴貴。。 沒想到朋友比我更享受這下午茶時間

This place is cute. Every time I visit Melbourne, I stop here to get something. No obligation whatsoever, I just happen to m. Every time. If it is not for friends and families back home, it's for me. The macarons are colourful, the flavours are creative and the texture is nice. If you don't know what to expect, then expect... More

Great service and beautiful store and packaging. There was also a good selection of flavours. The macarons were great and I throughly enjoyed them but they are second best I have ever had!

They have a great selection of flavours, but my favourite is the salted caramel and the earl grey tea. The staff are friendly. I wish they bought back the olive oil flavoured maracon! There is only one or two tables to sit down on and have a cup of tea. I would recommend this place for pick up only.

Purely a place to buy macarons many flavours to choose from at time of writing each one is $2.90. Buy six and they will package them in a soft box for $15.90 I did find the salted caramel a little sweet the lychee and coconut minimal flavour however the raspberry, the lemon and a black currant were awesome so was...

This place is nested amongst the very small eco-system of french quarter in Melbourne in CBD. Its strength is in sticking to traditional flavours and tastes and it does it very well whilst staying within a reasonable and practical price bracket. This is what real good food should be about, its not to price itself out from the normal population... More

The macarons are out of this world - probably the best I've had! They have some great, unique flavours too. Fairly expensive but then good macarons always are.

Beautiful quaint store, just like the famous Ladure'e store in Paris. Go for the salted caramel macaroons, they're the best!

Staying in Central Business District

Neighborhood Profile
Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques, throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You never quite know what you’ll find around the next corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air of Berlin in the street art, a touch of Paris in the umbrella-shaded cafes and, reminiscent of Rome, eateries tucked away in the most unlikely of places. Perhaps you might want a break and cross the Yarra River to Southbank - walk along the promenade, bask in the sun at a waterside bar and decide whether to go to the nearby casino or book a ticket at the Melbourne theatre company.
