"Have fun with your zoo!" says the friendly cashier as I get ready to walk out with all of my new cute macaron animal friends! 


If you love to eat cute food then this is the place to visit! It's called Honey and Butter Macarons and it's a trailer located at The Lab AntiMall in Costa Mesa near The Camp. It's also a very new store that opened on June 21st of this year, 2014. The cute store is a beautiful result of a boyfriend-girlfriend owned business stemmed from the love for making and baking macarons! The guy that works there is from Poland by the way!

They have a variety of flavors like Oreo, Cookie Butter, Pistachio, Taro, etc. Every time you buy a pack of 5 or 10, you'll get a cute character macaron for free as a gift! The boxes are free too by the way! What a refreshing change from other stores like Lette Macarons that charge you for the box. Forget them! This place sells each macaron for $1.75 and if you'd like the character macarons then they are $2.25 each. The store does not always have the same character macarons so you can expect to always be surprised by what cute creations they can come up with.

Note: The character macarons do not come in packs so you'd have to buy them each individually at $2.25 each because they are intended to be given out for free for ever pack you buy.

When it comes to taste, these macarons are sure to deliver! The downside to this store is that the macarons are pretty tiny in my opinion compared to the Lette Macarons which have slightly bigger ones. The macarons here are small and poofy while Lette Macarons are flatter and slightly bigger.

Another thing I noticed is that the cream melts fast. If you buy a lot, be sure to refrigerate them fast or eat them asap because they melt fast.

Overall, 

  • it's a cute place and the character macarons are too cute to pass! 
  • a bit too expensive because the macarons are quite small. It's even smaller than Lette Macarons
  • They may run out of the flavors so it's not always well stocked
  • Melts fast so you have to eat it fast
  • The Oreo flavor and Cookie Butter flavor is spectacular!
  • Service is very friendly!
  • Character Macarons: $2.25 each
  • Regular Macarons: $1.75


THEIR MOTTO IS "WHEN IN DOUBT, EAT MORE MACARONS"
