Macarons from Soirette

After much wishing and hoping, Vancouver finally has its very first macaron shop.
Yep, a little shop solely devoted to macarons (and tea)… right here in our pretty city.
Of course, most of the French bakeries and pastries shops have macarons, but a macaron-only shop surely deserves special mention.
Soirette, it’s called and I’ve been twice since they opened a few months ago – a testament to my self-control, since it’s only a block out of my way on my daily route.

The macarons from Soirette are quite possibly the best macarons I’ve had in Vancouver.
I shan’t compare them to Ladurée or Pierre Hermé because that’ll be unfair, besides everything just seems to taste better in Paris.
Case in point, the Ladurée macarons I had in New York (which are flown from Paris) were awesome but wasn’t as sensational as an afternoon of macarons and rosé at the Tuileries.


Admittedly, Soirette makes fine quality macarons; the texture is airy and delicate, the ganache layer is just the right amount, soft, with flavours that taste fresh and natural, there’s nothing artificial about them.
The macarons are not overly sweet, allowing the natural flavours of the almond and ganache to come through.
My favourites are pistachio, caramel fleur de sel and matcha .
The shop is in Coal Harbour on West Pender with an adorable modern chic tea-shop interior.
