In true French patisserie style, La Tropezienne showcases both sweet and savoury treats – although none are more famous than the macarons. Lovers of these brightly coloured indulgences are spoilt for choice at this renowned cafe on the busy Glenferrie Road strip in Hawthorn.

Gently crisp shells with soft, sweet centres make these macarons a light accompaniment to the great coffee on offer at La Tropezienne. Regulars are known to flock toward the well-known raspberry macaron, while first time macaron seekers often reach for the passionfruit and chilli blend – it is truly heaven. For a more substantial nibble, the cherry Danish is another favourite; just one of the many pastries, cakes, mousses and breads on offer.

Along with all the sweets, savoury options including rolls, pies and pastries (plus the very reasonable prices) keep this cafe busy from dawn to dusk. A vibrant window display and soft, peach-hued walls entice passersby by offering a sweet and delicious escape from the busy street.
