French macarons in Pasadena or Silverlake area?

I've recently developed a thing for the French style macarons, (not the coconut ones, but the colorful little sandwich cookies.) I know there are a few places in Beverly Hills and the Westside that do them, but does anyone know of a place near Pasadena or Silverlake that makes them?

      Most definitely Europane. My favorites are pistachio, salted caramel, and espresso. They also have lavender... and I think some other flavors. And they don't always have all of these flavors at once, either.

        Also Downtown at Bottega Louie, but I like Europane's best.

          Think nothing else but, Europane. Raspberry creme, meyer lemon, hazelnut.....Made fresh and stacked on top of the refridge. Amazing, just like everything else there. And, the Blueberry coffee cake is far above anybody's cloud 9! 950 E Colorado Blvd (626) 577-1828

            The hazelnut macaroons at Europane are rich and amazing. Their sea salt caramel ones aren't too shabby either. It's hard (for me at least) to go to Europane and not get several different pastries. The sandwiches there are really good too, especially the egg salad.

            Europane is definitely the first to try. Butter Tart on Verdugo Blvd in Eagle Rock also has some, though I've not tried them.
