Maison Adam has been around since the 17th Century. Back then the kind of macarons they made were these almond ones and even supplied them for the wedding of the Sun King, Louis the XIV to Maria Theresa. That was how famous they were even then. So when in Biarritz or St Jean de Luz, one must at least try one of their original recipe, authentic almond macarons. They are made fresh daily and are beautifully soft and chewy, and not overly sweet either. You can buy them in a pack or in a tin but if you just wanted to try it, you could just buy the one for a Euro each.

We stopped here on our way to the beach and bought a selection of different flavours of chocolate balls! Wow, they are full of flavour and very very tasty. The cakes also look very good, it is understandable why the place is so famous and has such a reputation. If your in the area make sure to visit.

Mason Adam has the best macaroons! They also have a wide variety of other sweet treats. The set up is wonderful as well. Definitely a place to go for sure!

Small but nice and fancy chocolate and cake store. Have a few baked goods too. Very interesting selection of small cakes local to the region. Would have given 5 stars, but they made two mistakes on my selection. One I noticed before I left, the other only at home.
