french-macaron If opportunity has it, I highly recommend a visit to Ladurée for a sublime experience. Delectable French macarons in a fashionable, classic French setting. A truly memorable experience, even when in the heart of Paris’ Champs-Elysées district.

Ladurée has three locations in the U.S., two in New York and one in Miami. Unfortunately, Ladurée hasn’t set a mark in Canada yet.

The other day, I came across macaron ice cream sandwiches. Just looking at these made my knees weak for just a taste. However, these wouldn’t have made for an appropriate breakfast. I hope to try them on my next visit to Big Mug Coffee Roaster (Santa Clara, CA). If you’ve already tried these macaron ice cream sandwiches, please drop a note on how your taste buds smiled. ice-cream-macarons
