At the Table with Anna


Where to go: Gallery Pastry Shop

Address: 1101 E. 54th St., Suite G, Indianapolis.

What to get: French Macarons

Price: $2.50 each

Anna’s take: I had never tried a French macaron before my visit to Gallery Pastry Shop in Broad Ripple for a friend’s birthday, and now they’re my favorite dessert pastry. For those who don’t know, a French macaron is a delicate circle of deliciousness that’s meringue-based on the inside and is typically made with flour, egg whites and sugar. They’re also beautifully and vibrantly colored and make an adorable gift when lined in a box in little colorful rows.

I tried the lavender and salted caramel flavors at the Gallery Pastry Shop, which offers an array of other flavors, typically matched with Easter egg colors. Each little delicacy is worth every penny.

Gallery Pastry Shop is a quaint and artsy little place to visit for birthdays or a lunch date. It opens its garage doors to let the outside air in when the weather is nice.

Suggested pairings: Try the blood orange mimosa. What’s better than mimosas and macarons?
