Melbourne is home to some of the yummiest and sweetest macarons, and the best of the best are not presented in any particular order. These macaron establishments have made the list due to their great tasting macarons with a variety of different and interesting flavours, and yes, you can even hunt down a macaron with a peanut butter flavour in the Clifton Hill/Fitzroy North area. Move over Zumbo!

1. Cavallini

A girlfriend introduced me to the world of macarons at Cavallini along Queens Parade the other day. Peanut butter and watermelon. How fancy. The peanut butter taste was really strong. One minute my friend said that she was "going to buy a couple of macarons for her mother" and the next, as a special gesture, we had one to share. A great tasting and ever so filling macaron. The display is also so inviting and colourful.

2. Puccinos

Great macarons can also be found at Puccinos along Bourke Street. Forget the coffee, just head to this establishment for a few little macarons to take away. Bliss.

3. Thomas Dux Grocers - Armadale and Port Melbourne

The macarons are oh so generous in size and rather sweet and filling. These small delights are only $1.95 per macaron. I love their pistaccio varieties. It is easy to come back for more and more. The Armadale store offers samples.

4. Depot de Pain

The home of crispy and creamy macarons right in the heart of Carlton.

5. LuxBite

LuxBite along Toorak Road at South Yarra is home to some exotic macaroon flavours. Creme Brulee macarons anyone? Yes please.

There are no more excuses not to find a great macaron outlet in Melbourne anymore.

Your Comment
I have since tried all the places above for the best macarons in Melbourne. Sorry guys, I really didn't think they were amazing like you all say they are. I have been to Paris, and tried many a macarons, and for me, the best place in Melbourne is Enni fine foods in thornbury. The texture of the ganache or butter cream fillings as well as the shell are amazing. You seriously need to try them!!! Love, love, love!
