Soirette

Soirette is a little macaron shop open in the heart of Coal Harbour about 3 months ago. They specialize in macarons and tea (although they have two or three desserts like tiramisu available as well).

My parents came down for a meeting and so I had some time to kill and took a stroll down Pender. This place is literally nestled in Coal Harbour without much business around it.

I ordered six ($11.50, $22 for a dozen and $2 for one): Earl Grey Cassis, Rocher, Pistachio, Malibu, Caramel Fleur de Sel and Chocolate.

I tried the Rocher and Caramel Fleur de Sel immediately when I sat down. The Rocher had gold dust sprinkled on it so it was quite fancy. These macarons are quite different than the Thierry version- being crunchier and denser than fluffy and big.

The Caramel Fleur de Sel had a great taste- sweet caramel in the middle with a slight salty taste on top. This was probably my favourite of the bunch.

My parents enjoyed the rest. The lady at the counter was helpful and genuinely nice. I couldn’t see this place get very busy so it’s a nice quiet place to come with a friend if you’re around Stanley Park or Coal Harbour. There are three tables of two at this cafe and a little patio set outside as well, so on odd occasions, it might be hard to find a place to sit. I also heard that their lattes are great – including a lavender one (which seems to be getting very popular here in Vancouver), I didn’t have time to try it out but maybe if I’m down here next time!

  1. Crunchy & dense…sounds like they did well in the macaron shell department. Salted caramel (caramel fleur de sel) mac is my favourite macaron flavour too!
