It’s not just about discovering the best restaurants here on Foodinburgh, it’s about finding the best foodstuffs too!
We consider ourselves well placed to spot a good macaron when we taste one. Last year we did a cupcake and macaron tour in London so we are comparing to the likes of Ladurèe and Fortnum & Mason here.
Well, you can be assured that Patisserie Madeleine stands up to any of the competition. What’s more, they are very reasonably priced too. We tasted flavours including orange, pistachio and caramel. The texture was good, but the stand out thing was the flavour in the fillings. Each one tasted just as its title promised and was very distinctive.
Based in Stockbridge (not far from Stockbridge Market) Patisserie Madeleine also do lovely cakes and pastries too.
If there’s a better macaron in Edinburgh, we haven’t tasted it, which is why we’re giving it our Bestinburgh award for ‘Best Macarons in Edinburgh’. Don’t take our word for it, pop down to Stockbridge and give them a try!
Price: £1 per macaron, or 6 for £5.70
