Since opening their doors, their menu has been extended to other sweet treats, including brownies, baked cheesecakes and more; as well as savoury gluten-free options such as french toast and bread and butter pudding savoury muffins with sun-dried tomatoes. Previously take-away only, in October 2015 Marché du Macaron also opened an outdoor dining area in their Gordon Park cafe, and in 2017 opened a dine in cafe in Ashgrove.

Whisky Business

High tea macarons are naturally gluten free, as they typically contain only sugar, egg whites and ground almonds, plus butter and/or cream and sugar for the ganache filling. But with all the additives used in commercial cooking these days, it pays to be doubly sure. You can get gluten free macarons made to order at Whiskey Business in Capalaba, which also doubles as a popular gluten free-friendly café. www.facebook.com/MacaronsByKylie
