Macaronage Macarons = LOVE

7610 Pacific Avenue
Suite B6

This is a very important address because what is housed here is quite possibly the sweetest dessert and also the sweetest owners one may ever have the pleasure of meeting. No joke.

The marquee outside reads Macaronage Macarons and I suggest that you check the clock, check their hours, and if they are open, jump into the car. Really, JUMP! HURRY! RUN! and enjoy the most delicate, dainty, sweet, and scrumptious taste of heaven that exists in a macaron.

When I heard of this place it was the "cookie" that enticed me for a visit. However, I later had the pleasure of meeting the owner, Grace, and talking with her has turned me from a visitor to a full-fledged Macaronage Macaron groupie.

Of course a superior product/service is a key element to a businesses success, but it is not the only key. When a product/service is sold by an owner that is honest, determined, ethical, and kind -- that is what will always bring me back time and time again. I am a people person. I want to buy from people I trust and like.

I can tell you that from just the few times I have talked with Grace and her husband, the owners of Macaronage Macarons, I can't help but smile and be inspired. They are GOOD people. They are a young, local, married couple that have worked hard, dreamed, studied, planned, and are succeeding at making their dreams become their reality. Love that. They have faith. SURE they get nervous when they take risks, but they don't let fear stop them. They JUST.KEEP.WALKING... and that determination and faith is paying off.

The conversations I have had with both of them (and their staff) have been an absolute delight. I walk away with a fully inspired heart and a desire to evaluate what I can do in my life to achieve my own goals. I also walk away with a very satisfied sweet tooth. Bonus!

I encourage you to stop in and treat yourself not only to the deliciousness of a macaron, but also to the joy of meeting Grace, the owner. You will not be disappointed. Tell her Mom sent you :)
