After trying the macarons, from La Belle Miette, at the Little Collins St Kitchen afternoon tea, I was a little hesitant to try the macarons at the store. I eventually decided that it wasn’t a fair judgement of the macarons unless you go to the actual store that they sell them. So I made my way to the Collins Street location.
La Belle Miette is a local patisserie that specializes in macarons. The Collins Street location, on the Paris end of Collins Street, is a cute little store with the display case taking up most of the space.
Aren’t they pretty? The flavor didn’t disappoint either. I particularly liked the Caramel a la Fleur de Sel, rich in caramel flavor. The choices vary by day, but you won’t be dissatisfied either way.
The macarons I had at the Little Collins St Kitchen afternoon tea were so different from the ones sold at the store, I kind of wonder if they even came from La Belle Miette…
If you’re looking for a macaron fix in Melbourne, definitely go to La Belle Miette.
