If your after sweet treats, Mademoiselle Macaron is the place for you! You might have noticed me mention this small business before on my blog here when I fancied a little treat and ordered one of the 18 macaron boxes. Nestled away down Grindlay street with Edinburgh castle over looking, this little cafe brings a warm atmosphere and a great place to relax when visiting Edinburgh.
We were in Edinburgh for the weekend to check out the different acts at the Fringe Festival as a little get away so wanted to pop to somewhere nice for lunch. Links of London treated me and Kyle to afternoon tea so we picked Mademoiselle Macaron. This is actually my first time doing this type of post and I really enjoyed the experience and it’s inspired me to do similar posts in the future. I was generouslyy gifted this stunning sterling silver charm bracelet and cute tea cup and saucer charm for the outing and absolutely adore the materials used and how minimalistic the bracelet is. The tea cup and saucer comes with an 18ct Gold insert to the cup and sterling silver finish, such a chic piece and I can’t wait to start collecting more charms for my new bracelet. We enjoyed ham and cheese stuffed crepes with peppermint tea and a large cappuccino. I couldn’t go without having one of the large macaron cookies, which is something I’ve never come across before! It comes with a macaron bottom and a cookie top sandwiched together.
The peppermint tea was absolute dive and very refreshing too! Freshly brewed from pure tea leaves and piping hot when served, it really was a much-needed refreshment after spending the morning walking around the cobbled streets of Edinburgh. The cafe was very small and cosy with a friendly atmosphere! The presentation looked just as good with pretty macaron towers in the main windows and cute macaron themed stools underneath the marble desk. When visiting, the cafe was very busy and the staff! This was down to the festival, leaving the organisation, not to its highest of standards but we still enjoyed our time and the food was delicious. We treated ourselves to some delicious macarons as a sweet treat and they were packed full of flavour and the texture really does give you that melt in the mouth experience. We lounged on the French style single ended sofas whilst enjoying our afternoon tea and loved the whole French theme, as it just makes afternoon tea that more fun and interesting!
After tea, we strolled outside to enjoy the sunshine and eat some macarons before heading off back to see more performances from the festival. The hustle and bustle of the town were refreshing and it’s always busy but when events are happening it’s impossible to get around! We managed fine however and got a couple of photos/videos of the acts and then popped into Pizza Express for a cheeky take away before heading off home.
