Place to visit: le detroit macaron

Le Macaron Detroit

Happy Independence Day!

Yesterday, I was finally able to visit le detroit macaron. So glad that I did. They have the cutest little shop in Capitol Park for the Summer, located at Griswold and State Streets. Inside their cute little glass shop they had merch for sale (t-shirts & mugs) but, I was a woman on a mission. I was on a 15 minute work break and had to get my little assortment of macarons. I’ve literally been thinking about them since my first experience with macarons last week. Yep, I’m officially obsessed!😍

Any whoo… It happened…

I purchased an assortment of 5:

Rose, Chocolate Hazelnut, Almond, Fruity Pebbles, and the Pop Rocks Macaron. Everything was delicious! I did share with my boyfriend and 17 year old son whom also, have never experienced them. Surprisingly, they enjoyed them. My son had the Fruity Pebbles and Pop Rocks. He shared his experience by describing each taste.

The Fruity Pebbles he described as tasting like the actual cereal with a red velvet center.

The Pop Rocks were just like the candy and he loved it. He could hear and feel the pop rocks fizzing and popping on his tongue.. and described the taste as a strawberry ice cream taste with a pop tart icing feel.

I had the Rose and Almond flavors and again they were absolutely incredible! Very light and delicate and I enjoyed them a lot. Can’t wait to visit again.

It’s finally open… Press Room Cafe-Market!

After a complete year of searching for lunch spots, calling for deliveries, online orders, and Food Trucks. Our building has finally opened an official Cafe that’s not only open to us (employees) but, open to the Public. I can honestly say that I’m super excited to have a new hang-out/lunch spot downtown.

It has a Starbucks feel… with a cozy lounge and a cafe style kitchen that serves really delicious Sandwiches, Pizza, and More…

Today, I stopped in to try the Malt Vinegar Steak Fries:

There’s only one word that comes to mind when I think of these fries and that’s YUM!!!!

They were hot (right out of the oven), the seasoning was perfect and they were very fulfilling so much so.. that I didn’t need a sandwich or anything. I was quite full off of the fries alone!

I guess with this being a new addition to our building. I will have time to try everything on the menu and I can give revues of the food, staff, and service as I go along.

With that being said if you live in Detroit or are visiting if you find yourself near the old Detroit Free Press Building stop in for a cup of Coffee or Tea or maybe even sit down and grab a bite! (Hours of Operation are 7am-7pm Monday-Friday for sure.. Not sure about the weekends. I’ll update).

Until next time!
