The French know how to do it right! This pâtisserie is found in the 5ième Arr. on Rue Monge near Métro Maubert-Mutualité. When I stay in a hotel just around the corner, this is a twice-a-day stop for un café or to pick up something sweet (much smaller than these beauties).
Those macarons are very red!

I'm off on an adventure with Nanette to find some castanets -- I will still be posting daily but with fewer comments until I return.
