“A lovely fusion of unusual flavours”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

We picked up some macarons from Pizza Mia at Atwater Market ... they were Point G ones. A great mix of flavours like balsamic vinegar, lavendar and my favourite.. poppy flower! They are tasty and quite fresh! Would definitely buy them again!

“We come from 200kms away to hit the Point G”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

We love the macarons from Point G so much we come from Ottawa to pick them up. We even own our own Point G insulated bag to bring some home. Parking around the store (and in Montreal in general) is brutal so be sure to have someone else do the driving so you can enjoy your macarons.

“Forget "La Duree"...Point G sells the best macarons in the WORLD.”
Reviewed November 4, 2011

Our favourite dessert in Montreal, by far. The Point G offers a very large variety of innovative flavours and simply offers the best macarons in the WORLD.

You want to argue? My neighbours from Parid did, supporting that Paris made macarons from la Duree were the top. They brought us some back from Paris. Hum...after a bit of travel, not that fresh, no, were not as good. Then, we were at Charles-De-Gaulle airport where La duree has a stand, so we tried them there too...still not as good. To finally close the debate, we went to the original La Duree restaurant on les Champs Elysees...and Sorry, le Point G is the big winner!

So why bother to cross the ocean when you have the best in the world? For the girlies, try the "coquelicot" and for the guys, anything with chocolate or maple syrup is just a pure miracle.

“a Gem”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Macarons - best in Montreal, and frankly, some flavours are much better than the now overhyped La Durée in Paris, while the rest are on par.

Ice cream : divine! Pineapple-basil is a surprisingly good mix, offering the perfect mix of sweet & refreshing taste. Berry sorbets are delicious as well.

All in all, this is a dessert-lover's paradise.

It is not the cheapest place, but well worth it considering Ben & Jerry's charges similar prices for a product of much lesser creativity.

“Good!”
Reviewed July 2, 2011

Purchased 6 macaroons. Best ones for me were the salted caramel and pistachio. They were soft and creamy. They are pricey 1.50CAD + tax if you purchase just a few. The bundles are tax free according to the girl who took care of us. Their gelato was ok not as creamy as I am used to but good.
We took the metro and it was a long walk on a hot day so it was not really worth the walk and special trip to this shop.
