5 Places to Get Macarons in Brampton
Melt-in-your-mouth, all different colours and flavours, and a quintessential French confection, macarons are made with buttercream, jam or ganache sandwiched between two soft, sweet almond meringue cookies…not to be confused with macaroons!
Thankfully if you lack the technical skills and time to make these fine pastries, you can pop into these local gems that carry them.
Here are five places you can find French macarons in Brampton:
5) La Cakery
This place might not sell macarons at all times of year (ie. not during holiday season - you’ll have to wait until the New Year!) but they are one of the only places in Brampton that sell the sweet treats, and they’re delicious! When they’re available, you can find the basics at this spot like strawberry, chocolate, and pistachio. And until then, you can indulge in La Cakery’s custard tarts and cheesecake, or one of their other decadent pastries. Like cake!
4) T by Daniel
