The World’s Best Macaroons! (Outside of France…)

It’s a bit obvious by now I’m a nut for about anything French. And one of my favorite French things is their pastries. The first time I had a macaroon in France I became hooked. Unfortunately, finding a good macaroon stateside is next to impossible.

I kept asking around and luckily a friend recommended checking out Amelie’s French Bakery. It’s in a part of Charlotte us natives refer to as NoDa meaning it’s a bit of a drive from where I live. The boy and I decided to play hooky last Friday and head up to NoDa to get some chili (Brook’s chili is the BEST chili in Charlotte…but that’s an¬†entirely¬†different post…) and stop by Amelie’s.

First of all, the inside of Amelie’s is adorable. They have a ton of pastries and they all looked delicious. But most importantly, the macaroons are AMAZING!

If you’re in the Charlotte area and are a French pastry freak like my I highly recommend checking out Amelie’s. You can check out their website here.
