Gaby et Jules macarons

With all the hype over macarons, I knew that if I wanted to try one, I had to do it right. So, I hopped on a bus and made my way to Squirrel Hill to this authentic little spot. As soon as I set foot in the door, I felt like I was transported to the heart of Paris. The smell of chocolate and fresh bread filled the air, and I was greeted with an enthusiastic, “Bonjour!” from the employee at the register. The detailed pastries with glossy sheens were too beautiful to ignore, so I ended up with a small chocolate cake with a fancy name as well as a set of 6 macarons – not to mention, the flavors were so fun and varied. My favorite ended up being an Earl Grey macaron, but they are always coming up with new and interesting flavors.
