Dainty French delicacies are popping up all over Melbourne, we're not talking eclairs, or petit fours, but the elusive macaron. Perhaps one of the reason these sweets are so popular, is because they're quite difficult to make at home, but plenty of pâtissiers prove that they have the required skills. So if you think you've tried a mac that was absolutely divine, let us know where in Melbourne it can be found.
Macarons by Duncan are another popular lot of macarons to be found in Melbourne, but unfortunately you're not likely to try one of his creations any time soon. Duncan is a food blogger with website Syrup & Tang, and had been selling his wares in Melbourne through 2010. Unfortunately he's currently on hiatus, but perhaps you've had the chance to sample his macs in the past. For now he only has the possibility of special orders. It could be that Melbourne's best macarons are not even currently in production.

One of Melbourne's most talked about cafes, Cafe Brunetti also stock their own range of macarons that you can enjoy with a coffee. They mostly stick to traditional flavours, but they look fabulous and can make a perfect gift.
You could be enjoying Macarons by Josephine and not even know it. This French macaroon master arrived in Melbourne in 2009, and has brought with her all the knowledge of perfect French macarons. You can order her macarons online, but you might be enjoying them at some of Melbourne's cafes, wine bars, and restaurants. Some of Macarons by Josephine's stockists include Chocolettea, Europa Cellars, Madam Sousou, Friends of Mine, and the Aviary.
So let us know which macarons have won your heart. We're they from a tiny market stall, or from one of Melbourne's best cafes. Do Melbourne's macaron makers compare to those around the world, and where in Melbourne can the best macarons be found? Its up to you Melbourne, so make sure you let us know.

The best by far are at the Torquay Farmers market. We travel from Melbourne every couple of weeks just to buy them. They are sensational and to die for!!! Yum!

I would have to say the best I have ever tasted are from Bridie's Treats in Port Fairy. I have tried a few but these were to die for. If your ever in Port Fairy give them a go, she has a blog and she does share them with a few places in Warnambool and also Geelong. A big thumbs up.
