The Best Macarons in Toronto

The Best Macarons in Toronto

The Best Macarons in Toronto

The best macarons in Toronto are comprised of smooth meringue shells, bright pops of colour and intriguing flavour combinations. From Asian-inspired flavours, ice cream sandwiches and cartoon shells -- there is an abundance of creative cafes and patisseries serving this French delicacy.

The history of the French macaron is a contested one. Even though the French insist the confection originated in France, it is believed that the macaron was actually invented in Italy back in the 16th century by a noblewoman from Florence. Whatever the history of the macaron may be, the one thing we can agree on is our love for the sweet treat.

Discover a little taste of Paris right here in Toronto with some of the best macarons the city has to offer. In anticipation of National Macaron Day, March 20, check out our favourite spots for French macarons.
