Macaron'ed Out

I can't believe I would be saying this but I think I'm macaron'ed out for a while... I took a different way to the metro station today and I happened to pass by Gérard Mulot (76, rue de Seine; M: Odéon) - I didn't realize I lived so close to it! Gérard Mulot is another highly recommended patisseries on my list so of course I had to stop in (even though I was on my way to eat already). I liked the place because they not only had beautiful cakes and pastries, but also had a good selection of savory foods (everything from smoked salmon to pate to quiche to salads) so it also makes a great place to grab a quick lunch. On top of it all, the service was very friendly. Maybe it was because they weren't that busy or as popular as places like Pierre Hermé or Ladurée (both discussed in my earlier postings), I thought people were much nicer here. Of course I couldn't resist but to pick up more macarons, which were quite good. But by now, I've had about two dozen macarons in the week since I arrived and I am simply macaron'ed out.

Macaron, I love you, but I think it's time for us to take a little break...
