Since 1793, macarons have been made from Provencal almonds, egg whites and sugar.

Its recipe has been passed down from generation to generation and is not publicly available.

Macarons began with two sisters, Marguerite GAILLOT (Sister Suzanne) and Marie MORLOT (Sister Marie MORLOT), selling them.


Exterior view of Maison Des Soeurs Macarons.

The shop on Gambetta Street, which leads to Stanislas Square, is easily recognised by its dark green exterior.

As it has a long history, I imagined it to be a large shop, but it is quite small.

The show windows display macarons, of course, but other confectionery items, such as chocolates, take up more space, so it is difficult to recognise the shop as being famous for macarons if you just happen to pass by.


Interior of the shop.

When you enter the shop, the left-hand side is all showcases.

And chocolate takes up most of that showcase.

These are the chocolates in the showcase.

Various types of chocolate are available.

These are the chocolates in the showcase.

I thought it was the birthplace of macarons, so I imagined it was a cake shop, but it was more like a chocolate shop.

Jellies in the showcase

In addition to chocolate, there is a wide range of other confectionery products, such as jellies.

The shelves display juices and honey.

Caramels are displayed on the shelves.

A wide range of caramels is also available.

These macarons are displayed at the far end of the sales floor.

Where the macarons were located, they were displayed on a shelf at the far end of the sales area.

Prices start at EUR 8.7, sold by the dozen.

This is a view of the crowded shop.

Note that the shop was very busy when we visited.

There were many locals, but not many people were buying macarons.


A special box for macarons.

Macarons can be packaged in a box like this one.

The box is opened and further wrapped in wrapping paper.

Open the wrapper and you will find six macarons stuck to the paper.

There is another one of these, so there are 12 macarons in total.

Maison Des Soeurs Macarons


Exterior: ★★☆☆☆

Interior: ★★★☆☆


Store clerk : ★★★★☆

Ease of purchase: ★★☆☆☆

Location: ★★★★★

There was nothing particularly noteworthy about the taste.

The exterior looks normal.

As for the interior, it had a good old-fashioned feel.

Prices are also normal.

Staff were efficient and helpful.

Ease of purchase is a bit of a hassle to ask for macarons only, as they are located at the far end of the sales floor.

The location is conveniently situated in a central tourist area.

You can buy it during the sightseeing tour or on the way back to the train station after seeing the Nancy Museum.

Overall, the evaluation was somewhat harsh.

Although the shop has the impact of being the birthplace of macarons, it does not have much of an impact in terms of taste.

However, this is not surprising considering that the image we usually have of macarons is a modern one, and that these products are in fact more original…

In addition, the product packaging was excellent.

The outer box has an old-fashioned feel and a luxurious feel.

Furthermore, the wrapping paper that wraps the products is stylish and adds to the anticipation.

The shop itself does not sell a variety of macarons, but is just a chocolate shop that sells macarons within a chocolate shop.

In addition, there are many other products on sale, so I felt there was a bit too much clutter.

It is a matter of taste, but I think a more relaxed atmosphere would have been better.

We encourage everyone to stop by and taste the macarons when visiting Nancy.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
