I, on the other hand, decided to visit another macaron haven in Sydney, tucked away on Alberta street, just a 5 minute walk from World Square. Café Cre Asion may be situated down a dodgy alleyway that could easily be missed, but it's macarons are probs the best I've had in Sydney. They are on the slightly smaller side, a tad more exxy than your average macaron ($2.80) but they taste damn delicious and technically & texturally exactly what a macaron should be like. They have a range of flavours which change daily, and I was lucky enough to go on a Monday morning just before lunch when the best of the batches were out and the cafe was pretty much empty, so I took my time selecting my bounty.

They also sell a range of other baked goods such as dark chocolate and sea salt cookies and vanilla bean shortbread, which I'd love to go back and try, along with some of their other macaron flavours.
Definitely hit this place up if your not keen on a 2 hour wait for frozen Swiss imported macarons (I'm not that patient), and want good value for money. I'd rather wait for the hype to die down on Ladurée. Home
