Today's Sweet

Have you ever tried the delicious macarons from Carette in Paris? Unfortunately I think these pretty little things have been overshadowed by the bigger brands, such as Ladurée and Pierre Hermé for example, which really is a shame because these ones are just as tasty, if not more so.

You can find Carette at two locations in Paris; at Place des Vosges and Place du Trocadéro. Could you ask for better locations? I don't think so. Choose between looking out over the beautiful Eiffel Tower or the gorgeous gardens at Place des Vosges. I only wish I had more time when I picked up these sweet things since the café itself is pretty gorgeous as well. Just look at this! I'm definitely coming back for a long pause in the afternoon so I can sip on a cup of tea, coffee or hot chocolate together with some pastries...
