Where can I find french macarons in Mississauga? Kindly recommend patisseries that sell good macarons.

    Sweets in Heartland. Macarons are basically as good as Nadege in Toronto, at least when I went there. Prices are Toronto prices, so it may cost a pretty penny.

      Beat me to it. Sweets is a great shop, I love it there. Great croissants too!

      The macarons are $2 each including tax, and there are about 20 flavors.

      They are imported from Point G in Quebec

        Thank you! I have since tried Sweets and they are really good, I find them better than the ones from downtown... but pricey!

          I was under the impression that they make the macarons but just use Point G packaging.

            Hmm, pretty sure she told me they come from Montreal, but I guess I could be wrong. I'm curious now myself...

              She had told me she brings them from point g and the flavored were the same as point g. This was a few months ago though.

        Having tried Sweets a few times, they seem to be the second best for my tastes, in the GTA, next to Thuet. When spot on they have great texture, though a bit too chewy at times however their flavour is a little too subtle for my tastes.

        I would avoid the Sweet Definition macarons sold at Whole Foods - STALE!!!!

          Has anyone tried the ones at Chocolate Alphabet & Casa del Gelato in Oakville (on Kerr St)? I've heard their gelato is amazing - so curious if macarons are the same - and it's run by two Parisians who, it is said, make everything themselves.

            I lived in Paris for a year so I've become quite a macaron snob. Last year, I participated (as in taste-tested) in International Macron day in the GTA. The closest thing to the real deal (by which I mean the macaron standards set by Laduree is Petit Thuet followed by Bobette et Belle).

              Curious if you have ever tried the Point G ones (either in Montreal, or from Sweets if that shop mentioned above is still bringing them in?

              I picked some up from Point G directly the other week. 40 for like $52 all in. I find them quiet good!

              EDIT - Turns out that Sweets mentioned above has closed. Curious, any other places that imports Point G macaroons in GTA?
