Yann Haute Patisserie – it’s the yellow house
We had the opportunity to head over to the well talked about Yann Haute Patisserie just off of 4th Street SW behind the Bank of Montreal in a bright yellow house. They are famous for their Macarons and if you love them you should head there. There are very good reviews and recommendations of this bakery. If you haven’t had a Macaron before they are two delicate almond based meringues with tasteful fillings. This would be the first time I’ve had a macaron and i would say they have a nice crust on the outside with nice fresh filling in the middle, just gorgeous and elegant.
I can see why people may love these delightful little things and to be honest, it wasn’t for us. Nothing was wrong with them, it just wasn’t a taste that I enjoyed. It was really tough to decide how to write this review because I didn’t like it, but I think for the rest of the 99% of the population, I know it’s very good. I can see why it would be good because of the fresh flavours, light meringues and the tons of options.
Fuzzy, the nice husband he is, took home an almond croissant for his wife, which she proclaimed was amazing and would choose that over any cupcake any day. Now those are big words for her. The cute and small bakery has many other things other than macarons and I can’t wait to head back there again soon to try the rest so I can give Yann Haute Patisserie the proper review it deserves.
