The macaron has become a simple, cheap (and oh so utterly) sweet treat for us Sydneysiders. So just exactly where can you find the best tasting and highest quality macaron in Sydney? Many people would have to agree with this list. Some of these establishments are well known, whereas there are other establishments on this list that could easily be dubbed Sydney's best kept secrets in the macaron department.

Here is the lowdown, and these are in order of preference:

1. Adriano Zumbo

Of course. What comes to mind when you think of lavender and coconut, lime and berry or banana split macaron flavours? That's right, Adriano Zumbo. The macaron available for sale at his Pyrmont Store (in the Star) are more classier with an indulgent range of flavours. They are small, yet oh so sweet with a smooth texture. Wherever you go; whether it is to his Pyrmont, Balmain, Rozelle (where 'the lab' is) or Manly establishment, do not leave empty handed without at least a couple of macarons..

2. CreAsion

This place is amazing. Menu items such as "green tea cappuccinos" is enough to make your foodie head spin in awe, wonder and excitement. But wait until you take a look at CreAsion's macarons. They are the brightest, most colourful macarons I have ever seen (and tasted) and are just as good as Zumbo's. For something way out of the ordinary, come to CreAsion for their macarons, and because you have made the extra special effort, come for something else in addition to their macarons too.

3. C'est Bon

A great macaron pit stop on Darling Street, Rozelle (right near Rosebud), if you can't be bothered heading further down Darling Street to Zumbo's Balmain patisserie for your macaron hit. These macarons are slightly lighter in colour than the above two establishments, yet the taste is just as good with slightly cheaper prices. Simple elegance can be found here.

4. Le Depot

If you live in or nearby Ultimo, you will know what I am going on about here and you should be pleased that this elegant little French cafe called Le Depot has made the top Sydney macaron list. This is a great all round quality top notch cafe for the area, and their macarons are worth it with a coffee or just to take away. Needs to be visited at least once to be appreciated.

5. Glebe Point Diner

Last but not least, Glebe is also home to the greatest and fresh tasting macarons. The Glebe Point Diner is predominantly responsible for this. This establishment is great, and quite simply so are their macarons. They are just that great. Worth checking out if you're ever in the area sometime soon.

Enjoy those macarons sometime soon.

I've been pass many times. I can't see how anyone can even call those Macarons. Their shape, texture, and taste are terrible. There is a reason why they're selling for $1 each. Please save yourself the $1 and go get proper macarons elsewhere.

POFF HSBC centre macarons aren't great. Even though they are cheap, their macarons are under cooked and the shapes are uneven. I rather go buy an expensive macaron and know that I am getting my moneys worth.

Tasted the salted caramel at poff. It's no wonder it was $1, undercooked and cracked shells and the filling was grainy and too sweet. This is what happens when something becomes mass produced. I'd rather pay $3 for the real deal.
