Montreal — Spring 2016: Point G

Tuesday, May 3, 2016
I really wanted to make a trip to Point G because they're consistently rated as having the best macarons in Montreal. It just so happens that Point G is on the same street as L'Avenue, so we literally just had to walk down three blocks to pick up these gems.

Macarons from Point G
(First row: Apricot-Black Tea, Carrot Cake, and Roasted Pistachio
Second row: Dark Chocolate, Red Velvet, and Poppy Flower
Third row: Espresso, Chocolate Hazelnut, and Sugar Tart
Fourth row: Fleur de Sel, Maple Taffy, and Crème Brûlée)

Chelsea, Corrado, and I each picked up a box of 12 to bring home with us and, because we couldn't resist, another three each to eat while we were there (I chose Piña Colada, Lime, and Pistachio). They have the perfect texture — crisp on the outside but airy and soft with a slight chew on the inside — with just the right cookie-to-filling ratio, the flavours are refined and incredibly well-executed and they're not overly sweet. Plus, they have a whopping 22 flavours available regularly, and they don't charge you tax if you purchase more than six. With maybe the exception of Kerry's Macarons (which has closed down), they're honestly far superior than anything I've had in Toronto. And they're cheaper. Honestly, I'd even go as far as to say they rival Ladurée.
