“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Good macaroons and cookies - yes they are expensive but they are home made and authentic. Small selection of items but all very good.

“Almond Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

Without a doubt, the BEST almond croissant ever. For those critics, don't go to France. You obviously don't understand the French.

“Perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

We visited this place twice during our trip to enjoy pleasant pieces of happiness. These hand made macroons were flavorful and put a smile on my face. Also try the croissants as a breakfast pastry.

“Just incredible! You Must Visit The Macaroon Boutique”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013 via mobile

We have had macaroons all over the country including La Duree, Payard, and Bouchon, and nowhere are they as wonderful as at the Macaroon Boutique. This small patisserie is a true find. It is run by a charming woman and a master baker who are both as delightful as the treats they sell. We were in Charleston for three days and visited the boutique every day we were there. The macaroons are addictive, but don't limit yourself to just macaroons as the other baked goods are equally good. The almond croissant is beyond belief, amazingly rich and buttery. The apricot scones are scrumptious and moister than an ordinary scone. As I told them, leave to the French to perfect a British classic! This place is a must visit for anyone who appreciates the best in macaroons and the finest baking.
