Le Macaron

Their true French macaron is made with the finest gluten-free ingredients, no preservatives and is about 80 calories each. Beyond the signature macarons, their menu includes gourmet chocolates, French gelato, classic French pastries, European style beverages and homemade candies.

These sweet, tiny delicacies fit right into the palm of your hand. They are lightly crisp on the outside and smooth and creamy in the center, filled with chocolate ganache, rich cream, homemade fruit jams or other quality ingredients. Their macarons are made with natural ingredients and no preservatives. Not to be confused with macaroons, the more familiar, American coconut cookie.

No other pastry shop, bakery or café offers the same ambience, variety, quality and convenience that Le Macaron French Pastries® does!

Second Cup

In addition to coffee drinks, Second Cup offers frozen yogurt, fresh squeezed juice, sandwiches, salads and locally sourced baked goods. They search the world looking for the best of the best… from the lush mountains of Costa Rica and Colombia, to the distant lands of Central Africa, to the exotic and enchanting island of Sumatra. Most of the coffee beans they use for their coffees or sell to their customers are exclusive to Second Cup. Second Cup is great to either sit down and enjoy a meal or grab a bite to go and explore Mercato.
