Pretty store

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!

Love their macaroons and the variety of flavors they have. I ended up purchasing those little gelato pop at checkout and they were delicious. I would recommend trying them too. My favorite was the passion fruit and rose + lychee macaroon. However I had bites from others and all of them had a very distinct and wonderful flavor.

Discovered this beauty 3 years ago (2011) I've been eating, squealing over their macarons, gifting and sending people ever since. First off: how prettyyyyyyy is this place? I walked by after getting overdose on nearby chocolate place. (another review ). Their window display drew me in. It was so birght, colorful, cheerful and pretty. Didn't even think they were macarons.... More

There are macaroon that are flavorless and unmemorable but you won't find them here. This is the way a macaroon is meant to taste. Lots of varieties to choose from. You will want to take some with you. Yum!
