macaron's melted in the mouth after breaking through the hard delicate shell. What's not to like? Great variety. A celebration in my mouth.

Absolutely beautiful chocolate-box-like macaron boutique in DTPA. High quality product that's always a knockout gift or a great little pick-me-up snack. Expensive, yes, but isn't everything here?

Foo-foo place with over-priced fare, like most California boutiques, but the macroons are good. Not as good as others I have had. We were treated by a friend to some. Would never pay their prices if I were buying. Interesting flavors, but very, very tiny.

We stumbled upon this cute, little macaron shop on our way to Blue Bottle Coffee. The décor is modern and fun, and there was a wide range of flavors to choose from. The cookies were very tasty but definitely a little pricey. We particularly liked the passion fruit.

Who doesn't love macarons! I was pleasantly surprised by the flavor and the variety they offered. I tried the coconut and rose one and they were really yummy...can't wait to come back and try more.

Lots of flavors which was a nice surprise. The red velvet cake was my favorite. Kind of expensive for a tiny little cookie..I make them at home all the time but wanted to try this place to compare. They were decent and I would go back for more.

Chantal Guillen only sells french macarons and teas. I tried a selection of the macarons, and they ranged from incredible to just OK. But it's worth going for those incredible ones. The hazelnul praline was by far the best - intense hazelnut flavor, rich cream filling - really top notch. Also good was the almond, and the choclate banana. The... More

I was introduced to this shop by a co-worker and now we have to visit, usually more than once, every time I am in the area. They serve macarons, which are small, cookie-like confections made with eggs and almond flour (note that several reviewers refers to them as macaroons, which are entirely different and made with coconut). While not exactly... More

In this store you feel like you've been transported to Paris. The displays are beautiful and staff is helpful. This is absolute must try if you are walking in downtown Palo Alto
