If you’ve read my first post on Cafe Pouchkine, you know that I’m not really a huge fan of this Russian-inspired French pastry shop. The resplendent boutique and lavishly decorated pastries might appeal to the eye (or not, depending on your tolerance for gold leaves), but the taste just didn’t suit my palate. I’ve always wanted to come back though, for its duo-colored macarons. They are just a bit too cute to miss.

Here they are. Adorable, no?

I tried a macaron pistache coeur fraise (€1.95), which is pistachio macaron with a strawberry heart. The size is generous and the texture is soft and chewy, but the pistachio flavor wasn’t really quite there.

Also worth trying at Cafe Pouchkine is its croissant a la vanille (€2.00), vanilla croissant. The size is (again) very generous, and the puff pastry layers beautifully with a dose of vanilla.

Cafe Pouchkine isn’t one of my favorite pastry shops here in Paris, but if you happen to be near Printemps or Lafayette, do drop by for a viennoiserie and perhaps a colorful macaron.
