I get this question a lot: Where to find an authentic French bakery near me?

Being a French chef from Le Cordon Bleu Paris and a macaron expert, I know how frustrating it could be.

That is why I created Pastreez: An authentic French bakery, where you can buy macarons online. It ships fresh to your door in the US.

I thoroughly searched for the best authentic macaron bakery in 16 big cities in the US.

Why macarons? Because it's such a challenge to make those, that if you succeed, you can be considered an experienced baker.

  1. Macarons Los Angeles

Los Angeles has plenty of macaron bakeries. Since 2017, macarons has become a trending dessert in town.

  • Ladurée Los Angeles

Ladurée Los Angeles

The first macaron shop to mention is Ladurée. It's the most iconic macaron shop that was created in 1862 (yes, a while ago).

Two locations: 311 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, CA 90210 and 889 Americana Way, Glendale, CA 91210.

While Ladurée is definitely the oldest and most experimented in making macarons, one day I asked at the store in Los Angeles few questions. Being from Paris, I was curious if each location of Ladurée made their own macarons locally.

The answer was disappointing: Every macaron is made in Paris and ship to their location frozen. For such an iconic brand, I would expect they make and sell fresh macarons.

Still, Ladurée is the closest to a real Parisian macaron you'll find in LA.

  • Bottega Louie
Bottega Louie

It's an American bakery specialized in macarons. Bottega Louie is located in 700 S Grand Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90017.

I sadly realized that one of their LA location is closed, and the second will close soon. Hurry up if you want to test it out!

  • Lette macarons
Lette Macarons Los Angeles

After COVID, Lette Macarons has closed most of its locations in Los Angeles. It's a pity, because the founder was really passionate about her macarons.

They still take orders on their website for nationwide delivery.

  • Le Macaron
Le Macaron Los Angeles

Le Macaron is located at 541 S Spring St Suite 127, Los Angeles, CA 90013. One thing you need to know is that this macaron store is a Franchise. I always recommend a real artisan bakery that bakes with passion, rather than a "business" oriented vision.

Of course, making profit is part of the business. But with dozens of locations nationwide, I don't think Le Macaron can keep up with quality, for such a delicate treat.

  1. Macarons New York

New York got plenty of choice when it comes to restaurants and bakeries. But what about authentic French bakeries? Let's find out.

  • Ladurée New York

Ladurée also has locations in New York. Three actually: One on 864 Madison Ave, another at 398 W Broadway, and the last one at 20 Hudson Yards.

See all their locations.

  • Macaron Café
Macaron Cafe New York

Macaron café is located on 750 3rd Ave, New York, NY 10017. I couldn't find any informations about its founders or process to make the macarons.

From the reviews you can find online (4.5 with 163 reviews on Google), the place seems legit.

  • La maison du Macaron
La maison du macaron new York

Located at 132 W 23rd St, New York, 10011, La maison du macaron offers local pick up but not Nationwide delivery.

From my research, I didn't find anything about the chefs behind this store. I always recommend to order from a French bakery that has legit bakers.

For example, Yami and I are both French chefs from Le Cordon Bleu Paris (more about Pastreez). Pastreez is located in California and ship fresh nationwide. By the way, redeem today's deal below. We offer 7 macarons Free on every order over $42.

  1. Macarons Austin

Bakery Lorraine

Bakery Lorraine is located at 11600 Rock Rose Ave #100 Austin, Texas 78758.

But it looks like they are doing an amazing job, not only with their macarons but with their lunch and dinner.

  • La Patisserie Austin

La Patisserie has two locations in Austin. The first one at 602 W. Annie St. Austin, Texas 78704; the second one at 7301 Burnet Road Ste 102 Austin, Texas 78757.

  • Michelle's Patisserie Austin

The website has not "about us" page. I couldn't check on who are the chefs and if they are making authentic French macarons. I will give it a try whenever I'm in Dallas.

  • Savor Patisserie Dallas
Savor Patisserie Macarons Dallas

The Savor Patisserie of Dallas was founded by Kelli Watts. I'm happy when the founders and chefs are transparent with its customers.
