Don't wait for Grandpa to give you a Werther's candy, just eat the Werther's Caramel macaron from Fluff Bake Bar.

3. Fluff Bake Bar
Unfortunately, there isn't yet a Fluff Bake Bar storefront where you can purchase any of Becky Masson's sinfully sweet creations, but fortunately, you can purchase her macarons (as well as those amazing Fluffernutters) at Revival Market. In Fluff Bake Bar style, the flavors are not your standard French offerings; Masson adds her own touch. If you love tart and sweet treats, then choose the green apple macaron. If you can't keep your hands off your grandfather's Werther's caramels, then purchase a few of her Werther's Caramel macarons complete with a smooth filling reminiscent of dulce de leche in alfajores.

These macarons will make you say, "Oui, oui!"

2. Oui Desserts
"Oui" think Oui Desserts is making a name for itself as one of the best French patisseries in town. Oui opened in February inside the same Kirby shopping center that houses Fat Bao and Luna Pizzeria. As soon as you step inside, you're overwhelmed with the scent of cooked sugar, baked bread and coffee. Alongside key lime tarts, gluten-free walnut brownies and beautiful brioche rolls, you will find itsy-bitsy macarons a little larger than a dollar coin. The strawberry cookie sandwich not only contains a whipped filling, but also tiny strawberry chunks, creating a refreshing treat. Hazelnut macarons are filled with a flawless spread of Nutella, and although the pistachio cookies are not bright green, they taste exactly like the nut. Pair any of these mini treats with a cup of Illy coffee.

Figs and goat cheese make one heck of a combination.

1. Macaron by Patisse
Sukaina Rajani is the co-owner of Macaron by Patisse, Houston's original macaron shop and the best place to buy the French almond cookie sandwiches. Her cute store features more than 20 macaron flavors in its display cases. Classic options such as rose, vanilla and pistachio sit beside exotic flavors such as cookies 'n' cream, tiramisu and the ever-popular fig and goat cheese. Your taste buds are instantly hit with the sweet fig cookie, then as you chew the soft filling, you discover the savory cheese -- a daring combination that works.

Seriously, guys if you have not tried macaron by patisse, don't bother. They're WAYoverrated. They taste nothing like what they're supposed to. In fact, if u buy a dozen, you won't know what you're supposed to be tasting because they lack flavor. Not only that, but they cost more just because they're off w. Grey and are smaller in size. You're better off getting them at central market if actually like patisse's macarons. Although I don't know who patisse is considering the owners are Indian. The writer of this article clearly is friends with the owners because it does NOT deserve to be #1. Petite Sweets and even aräya and arroyo are better. Try petite sweets because they taste better, are bigger and they are flavored as they are supposed to be. Also, I'm not sure if you guys have ever tried to eat a macaron by patisse the next day, they're awful! Their consistency changed and they start falling apart. That's never happened to me anywhere else. Waste of money.

Such bullcrap, macarons by patisse is the crappiest macaron around town!! Their flavors taste like nothing, they charge more and their mavarons are smaller!! B.S. The writer is clearly best friends with the owners or something cause they're nasty! You might as well buy them at central market.

The one time I tried Patisse, the macarons were burned. No idea how you could rank her higher than anyone else on the list, or even Sweet which was overlooked.

I don't know why I thought Macaron by Patisse was a clothing boutique. I am so there.
