Macarons are definitely the latest trend in the world of Cypriot patisserie. The reality is that ever since the French mini sweet bites have arrived in Cyprus, we have become obsessed with them and I don’t really think it will be just a passing trend.
After macarons started appearing in established confectioneries and sweet shops it was only a matter of time until the first macaron boutique would open its doors. And a “boutique” it is indeed! Situated in the centre of Nicosia with a pleasant, Parisian look, colourful décor and macaron stacks that remind of Marie Antoinette’s breakfast can give you a glimpse of what mAKaron is about.
The macaron specialised chef Andreas Konstantinou makes everything himself. Apart from small amounts of macarons that you can buy on the spot you can order large amounts for parties, weddings and other special events a few days in advance. One can find macarons in a variety of flavours like chocolate, espresso and even the traditional flavour of, Cyprus rose. The best seller is, as expected, the pistaccio. Crunchy yet soft with a light cream aftertaste is what makes them special.
Besides macarons, they also sell mini chocolate tarts, red velvet cup cakes and a large selection of home-made biscuits. All of them can be bought in small quantities to-go but it’s definitely best to call beforehand if you would like them in bigger quantities.
In a nutshell, if you like to try different things, if you want to enrich your flavours and amuse your palette in this fresh and cute little place, go!
