We all have a food indulgence—for some of us, it's pizza every weekend, and for others, it's jambalaya galore. But for those of us with an endless craving for something sweet, buttery and cream-filled, French macarons are a particularly decadent treat. If you're on the lookout for the best macarons, these bakeries near our Redmond apartments should do the trick.
Sure, it's been open for only a year or so, but La Cherie Bakery is successfully showing Redmond its baking skills, especially with its macarons. The crisp gorgeous shells crumble with one bite, revealing the sticky, fluffy interior underneath—and that's before you get to the filling, which is soft and richly flavored. Go for the cream of mint or tropical if you're looking to break away from the standard flavors.
Founded in 2008, The French Bakery makes its products daily from scratch and aims to provide customers with a taste and feel of an authentic Paris bistro. The bakers tend to stick to more traditional macaron flavors, like pistachio and raspberry, but you'll find an experimental gem every now and then. Whatever you choose, your sweet tooth will definitely thank you for it.
Hoffman's Fine Cakes and Pastries is a favorite among locals for its meticulously made and hand-painted celebration cakes, but it also offers some pretty tasty macarons. On any given day, you'll find a mix of flavors that range from traditional to eccentric, like cranberry orange and raspberry cinnamon. Order a few macarons, a slice of cake, and a cup of latte for the complete experience. The shop opens Monday through Wednesday at 7:00 a.m.
After enjoying some macarons, unwind and have fun in one of these local parks before you head home. From picnic areas to hiking trails, there's an open park for the exact activity you have in mind. Finally, to call Parkside home, please get in touch with us. Our leasing team will gladly show you the amenities and floor plans our apartments in Redmond, WA, have to offer.
