Tart Bakery Adventure

Being in a large city at the moment very much unlike where I am from, there are certain things you MUST see and do. Such as, find the bakery with the best French macarons in the city. And ladies and gentlemen--I did just that. I stumbled upon Tart Bakery at 5219 W. Lovers Lane in the Big D.

Now let me tell you something that you already had an idea about; I have had many macarons in my lifetime and never have I had my favorite flavor (my beloved pistachio) literally melt in my mouth of goodness. Not only was it melt-in-my-mouth good, it wasn't too too sweet to where it was overpowering, it was just sweet enough with hints of pistachio. And the color, well, was fabulous! As I walked into this fabulous little bakery, I was greeted with the sweetest girl. Extremely friendly personalities that just made my experience THAT much more delightful.

I got a pistachio macaron (OF COURSE), raspberry, lemon, & salted caramel. And let me tell you, they are all kinds of fabulous! They look great too, which is a plus because I have seen some unattractive macarons in my life. So having macarons look AND taste beautifully, amazingly, wonderful is honestly...rare. But Tart definitely did it!

Let's just say my journey to find the perfect macaron has ended in complete success. I honestly cannot get over it. But wait! There's more! Not only do they have the best macarons in the city, they have a wonderful assortment of fresh (made daily) cookies, French pastries, cupcakes, and more! They are also known for their custom-ordered cookies, petit fours, cakes, & cupcakes. 

My sister ordered the triple chocolate mousse which was absolutely divine (which after eating my pistachio macaron, I didn't expect anything less than divine).

With their pastries and other fun stuff you had choices of glass bottled pink lemonade, french soda, water or a cup of coffee if you wanted something to wettin' your whistle between each bite. I got the blood orange soda. How chic and fabulous is that? Here's me just completely giddy with my tiny piece of perfection in my hand:

To conclude all of my blabbing, let me just tell you this is a must stop when you're in Dallas. It is all things fabulous and just what I was looking for and finally found. 
Thanks Tart Bakery! 
Make sure to like them on Facebook, they are always posting some "sweet" photos!

Until next time, lots of love.
