Late-night deadlines followed by morning meetings meant that I was in the mood for a quick afternoon treat before I marched through the rest of my day. A skip and a jump away from Miel Patisserie, I hurried over to huddle in air conditioning and browse their selection of parisian sweets.
Bypassing their breads and cakes, I headed straight to the macaron case and thoughtfully chose the pistachio and salted caramel. The nutty bite and salted sweet were the perfect delicate duo. Minutes later, my heart sunk when I realized that I had devoured the treats in haste. Granting myself a few more minutes of peace, I headed back to the case for one last macaron.
The toasted flakes topping the coconut macaron caught my eye. Making my way to the register, a rush of cold air made me forget the heatwave beyond the door. The rich sip of Vanilla Chai tea's aromatic spices warmed me to the core as I carefully savored the petite treat. With only a crumb and a sip left, I prepared to head out into the heat. My heart shipping with excitement, I knew that I had the soothing sip and sweet bite to thank.
