The best macarons I have had. Apricot danish and St. Honore also. Inexpensive compared to all other food in Zurich, which is very expensive. Less costly than SF Bay Area patisseries.
Champagne! Salted Caramel! Chocolate! Hazelnut! Mocha! All these flavors and more easily shine through these delicious luxembergerli creations. Are they pastries? Macaroons, perhaps? Or mini cakes maybe? No.. they are in their own category... LUXEMBERGERLI! I'm told they are like macaroons, but I'm not in a position to compare, as I haven't tasted macaroons before.. that will change in my upcoming Paris trip! :)
Overall, these little, plump and chubby airy pieces of heaven are tasty and delicate! I normally do not have a sweet tooth, but I admit, I bought a box of 15 pieces to sample the different variations. Although passing out a few of them, I ate most of them.. within the same day! The good thing though is, despite the reality, I didn't feel guilty since these seemed to be light, fluffy treats!
When I came to Zurich 12 years ago, I had these amazing truffle brioches...obviously I've never forgotten about these. Yes, that's how good they were. So when I came back, I had them again and still just as good! They sell out quickly so get them while you can!
After a day or two in Zurich I realized that these amazing little chocolate shops (and bakery) are sprinkled all over town. I purchased most of my take home gifts at this shop, so have not sampled a wide range of their products. But I can say that the chic little shops offer a wondrous array of treats at a wide range of prices. The creativity of the product lines is also excellent, with fun seasonal twists.
