'lette macarons & Lucca Cafe

I finally had a chance to try 'lette macarons last week. The best option was the 12 macaron gift box (really cute packaging by the way) for $19.50. Individual macarons are $1.75 each. The passion fruit and rose flavors weren't that great (slightly artificial tasting), but the chocolate, vanilla, and salted caramel were fantastic. Overall the macarons had the perfect cookie to filling ratio, and the cookies were chewy with a slightly crispy outer layer.

Another place I finally got to cross off my list of places I wanted to try was Lucca Cafe. While my dinner was just OK, the cookie I took home was worth going back for. I tried chocolate chip (peanut butter and oatmeal raisin were also available) and was pleased with the soft texture and crispy edges. There was just the right amount of chocolate chips, too. Large, saucer-sized cookies are $1.95 each.
