La Belle Miette - Melbourne, Victoria

We made a quick macaron stop in Hardware Lane in Melbourne and it was one of the highlights of our trip.

La Belle Miette

La Belle Miette means "beautiful crumb" in French and this patisserie definitely lives up to its name. We were greeted just after opening by a full case of macarons.

Full case - a rare & beautiful sight

All the beautiful colours and flavours were slightly overwhelming when it came to choosing our assortment.


We ended up with a 6 pack containing: 72% Cocoa Single Origin Chocolate (Venezuela), Caramel a la Fleur de Sel, Raspberry, Violet & Blueberry, Cherry Blossom & Sake, and Strawberry & Vanilla.

6 pack of perfect French macaroons

Each macaron was perfect in its size, flavour, colour and texture. Buy as many as you can, people! Sydney may have Zumbo, but Melbourne has La Belle Miette.
