Your Joking

So, if you have never had the French Macaroon from here.. then you have not lived a full life. I could go into each flavor, but it would be redundant as every one I ate was just as amazing as the one prior. These are sooo fricking fresh that they will break if you breath to hard on them (just... read more

We walked into this place after a long walk through SF and boy were we glad we did!! We'd never had Macarons before and this place was simply awesome. You could tell they were hand crafted and made with love. Its hard not to buy 100 and not eat them all at the same time! Try the various options they... More

Seriously wonderful...go there now. Especially if you're looking for a fantastic gluten free treat. (Macaroons are gluten free.) The staff is super friendly too. Try the salted caramel!

A pretty macaron store. The macaron were average, good but not something I would search out if I wasn't in the neighbourhood.

I no longer feel the need to run to Pierre Herme and Laduree as soon as I land in Paris because Chantal Guillon is right here. Its excellent array of flavors and perfect texture make this my favorite in this city of fine foods and beyond. They make wonderful gifts to take home to friends and family.

The best and freshest French macarons I have ever eaten (including ones I had in Paris). Try the salted caramel or champagne flavored ones! You can buy them individually or in a pack of a dozen.

Lots of flavours and reasonable price. Liked the mango ones but didn't like that the salted caramel ones were sold out!!!!

These are the best macarons I have ever had, anywhere!!!! The shop is charming they offer tea as well. No trip to SF is complete without a stop here. My favs to date are the almond amaretto, raspberry lychee & passionfruit. J'adore. They have classic as well as some more unusual flavor combos. Glad to see them adding more locations.

This stylish place offers the most heavenly French macaroons that ever touched my palate. They were a bit crunchy and their taste is so rich. I must visit this place before I leave the city.

My only disappointment was not going back before we left town. Great macaroons! The passion fruit ones were especially great!

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
