There's a new macaron contender in town! And it just recently opened this past year on a small place by West Pender in downtown. Soirette Macarons & Tea is a new addition to the family of Macaron shops here in BC and compared to other places, this shop is by far the smallest one that I've been to.
One of the few issues that I have with this place is that seating is very limited so if your planning to have a nice sit down dessert/snack/tea place, this isn't the place that I would suggest for you to go. Parking may also be another thing since it's located in downtown, the only available spots to park here are street parking.
The Interior of the place and their displays are decorated well, but when it comes to the variety of flavors, Soirette has a wider variety that's fancier than other places.
Based on the ones that I have tried so far, the macarons that they have are smaller in size. Not only that, when you bite into their macaron, the cookie is quite hollow which means that there's more air than the cookie itself. For the price that they are charging (at $2 per piece and $11.50 for a box of 6), I would rather buy Thomas Haas', Thierry's, Bel Cafe's, or Kitchening with Carly's macarons. But because of the uniqueness of the flavors that they have compared to other places, they still manage to pull in quite a fan base when it comes to these delicate sweet treats.
