Ah, ‘tis the season once more, dear reader. The air, crisp and inviting; the sky, painted in serene shades of grey; and our hearts yearn for reunions with long-lost friends. The elements seem to conspire, nudging us towards the allure of a chic French café, where a café au lait paired with a delightful macaron promises to be the pinnacle of this almost-aristocratic indulgence.

Although the French might not have always been the most considerate global neighbours, their expertise in desserts is undeniable. Luxurious, bursting with flavour, and simply a sweet escape from life's complexities, macarons are the vibrant treats one craves now and then. So, without further ado, let’s explore where you can savour these delicious macarons across Egypt.
