I stumbled upon Butter Avenue unplanned on my way to Burger Priest and instantly knew that dessert was needed. The restaurant inside was clean and crisp with white walls, tables and chairs. The space was softened by the curves of the furniture and all the natural sunlight flooding in from the store front.
I ordered 6 macarons to go and the box packaging is super cute and sturdy. My box is currently being used to store restaurant business cards.
In my six, I had a sea salt and caramel, lemon, white chocolate and strawberry, matcha green tea, lychee raspberry and earl grey tea. They didn’t have any pistachio macarons that day, which was kind of disappointing as I like to think of it as a staple flavour. Of the six, all of the flavours were sweet. I liked the lemon a lot and the earl grey had the most subtle flavour. All of the cream fillings were rich and I liked that the caramel wasn’t too sticky or hardened. The cookie itself was less airy compared to La Bamboche but more so than Nadege or Moroco.
Butter Avenue would be my second go-to for macarons. The location is convenient and the macarons are on the sweeter side. I just wish they had pistachio year round and not just as a “seasonal” flavour.
