It's not much of a secret that I'm completely obsessed with macarons, and they're my absolute favorite dessert. And even though I eat healthy most of the time, I also like to treat myself to a box of macarons once a month or so. Today I wanna share with you my favorite places to buy them in Moscow. I'll share with you which cafes serve the best macarons, what options are there and how much they cost. So, if you're obsessed with these little pieces of heaven as much as I'm, keep reading!

I've got hooked up on their macarons a few moths ago and these probably gotta be my go-to ones. I like that they have quite a variety of flavors: coffee, salted caramel, blueberry, apple, orange, lemon, strawberry, praline. My favorite one is salted caramel, it tastes like nothing else! I also like the price, it's probably the most affordable one amongst others.
Price: about 5$ for a box of 8.

These were one of the first macarons I've ever tried and they still remain in my favorites. There are 5 flavors total: chocolate, pistachio, vanilla, praline & strawberry. My favorites are pistachio & strawberry.
Price: about 5$ for a box of 8; 10$ for a box of 16.

I tried macarons from IL Patio on my friend's birthday, while we were having a brunch there. First of all, they're really pricey for how freakin' small they are. I don't know if you can tell it from the photo, but they're the tiniest macarons I've seen so far. But, I actually was quite impressed with them. I'd been sceptical about them at first, but they turned out to be pretty delicious. I wouldn't say they're my favorite ones, but still worth the shot. As for the flavors, they have strawberry, pistachio & vanilla, and once again, my favorite is pistachio.
Price: about 1.5$ for one macaron.

From small to big, these are the biggest macarons I've tried so far. I don't remember the exact price and all of the flavors, but I'll say that there for sure were strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, orange, lemon & pistachio (maybe some more) and the price were quite affordable. I liked them, but again, they're not my most favorite ones.

And of course, I saved the best for last. This was the love at first bite! This brand specializes of macarons and they even have a delivery where you can make a special order with your initials on macarons or something along these lines (how cool is that!). What I like the most is that they have a huge variety of unique flavors: tropical lemonade, cheesecake, praline, raspberry, mint & so much more. If you ever have a chance to try only one brand, go for these!
Price: abou 2$ for one macaron.
