The usual ones include chocolate, mint choc, orange, and strawberry whilst seasonal specials include Ferrero Rocher, champagne rose, plum pudding macarons, Macadami honey, and Belgian Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts. 

Everything is handmade on site to guarantee their freshness. Another thing that makes their macarons special, is the fact that they use ganache for the fillings instead of the typical buttercream.

Before opening their brick and mortar store in Brisbane, they have been operating online since 2011 and their family was known for making macarons for special occasions like weddings, christenings, milestone birthdays and corporate events.

Trish, who has been a coeliac since 1997, has been very hands on with the business. They take coeliac disease and gluten intolerance incredibly seriously, hence, customers can make sure all the treats they order are 100% gluten-free. 

Besides the macarons where they are best known for, this lovely little cafe also offers other sweet and savoury items and an ever-changing brunch menu.

The counters are always full of cookies, chocolate cheesecake scrolls, caramelised onion and herb focaccia, and muffins, as well as toasties and egg rolls. All items go perfectly with their coffee and hot chocolate. 

One more plus factor, especially for pet lovers, Marche du Macaron is a dog-friendly place where they even have a special ‘dog station sculpture’ out front with designer leash to attach your fur babies.
