Delightful and bright, this petite patisserie-cafe is an altar for the multi-colored Parisian macaroon, a specific French dessert that is beloved throughout Europe. The philosophy of Makrönchen Manufaktur is to create the finest small cakes by producing over 20 types and flavors. The venture started in 2011, in Berlin’s various street food fairs, followed by a cafe the following year. Bright shades of green, pink and purple on the walls do well to match the sweet macaroons, while a curious royal touch adds a certain panache and style to the place. The menu is diverse, containing delicious scone variations, sandwiches and coffee, all in the French style of slow eating.
