Butter Avenue

Butter Avenue on Urbanspoon

Hello Macaroon-Lovers!

I finally had the opportunity to visit Butter Avenue.
I walked pasted this place a few times when I lived near the area. The store itself looks pretty interesting. There is this huge cone with red macaroons glued on to it so it looks a pyramid or a tree of macaroon. 

We got a small cup of assorted Macaroons.

A small marcaroon cake as a display on top of the tea display. 
Butter Avenue is known for their macaroon and dessert but they also sell coffee and tea. It looks really clean and simple. 
I tried to take a snap shot of every type of macaroon. 

If you had to choose one, which one would you choose?
I would like the nutty dark chocolate.

Oh, they all look so good! I would love to learn how to make macaroon and mini-cakes. 

Sea Salt Caramel
The macaroon was fresh and the centre was soft and chewy. Delicious! 

Dan had the Cafe au Latté. He enjoyed it.
I enjoyed the Matcha, green tea macaroon. Dan dislikes the taste of green tea for some reason. So I gladly took his macaroon. 

I would rate this place 4.0/5.0. The food items that they sell, you can tell they are or they use quality ingredients. The Macaroons were tasty, fresh and the restaurant was executed well. Their cakes and macaroons were displayed as if it was in a jewellery shop. Their desserts were brightly lit, and they colour blocked (placed in a rainbowic manner) the macaroons.

I was disappointed at how they delivered their customer service and that is where they lost a whole point. I stepped into the store with my boyfriend and his colleague. We dressed casually that day and it was a cold night. There was a Chinese girl handling the desserts behind the display cases and a cashier chatting amongst themselves. The two workers observed us step in, made a snap judgement and did not greet us and did not say anything. While I was taking pictures, a lone female customer entered Butter Avenue and clearly she was a wealthy lady and was a big fan of Michael Kors. The female customer had MK purse, winter boots, wallet, you name it, she pretty much had it all. The two workers greeted the female customer immediately with their undivided attention and served her right away. I am unsure what to say. If you plan to go to Butter Avenue, dress well because they will provide customer service based off of how you dress. It felt like it was either horrible customer service or gold digger service.
