Top Mmmm…macarons of Vancouver

So much “ooooh” and “ooh la la” when we see and think of Macarons… Macaroons?
It is impossible to talk about them without the “yummm”, “aaah”, and “wow”!

Let’s clear up the air first when it comes to these tasty and glamorous confectioneries.

Macaroons (with ‘oo’) have Coconut as their main player while French Macarons use Almonds as their main ingredient. We can say that it’s between Coconut and Almonds.

Nonetheless, both delicacies  are very satisfying in their crunchy ways.

On National Macaroons Day (yaay, we have a day for these amazeballs!), we present to you the top Macarons of Vancouver.

(While the struggle to find stores and bakeries that offer the Coconut Macaroon goodness is ongoing, here are some of the best French Macarons offered around town! Of course, in no particular order)

Thierry Chocolaterie Patisserie Cafe (or simply Thierry) – If you are in Vancouver, there is absolutely no way that you aren’t aware of Thierry’s fabulousness. Chocolates, cakes, macarons, and everything love sums up Thierry.
