    We know that the French pastry shop offers bite-size macarons; however, we haven’t seen them lately at any of their branches. Instead, they have large macarons (75LE per piece) that come in several flavours, including vanilla, pistachio, and raspberry. You can order by calling your nearest branch; Downtown: 01123477773, Mohandiseen: 01146445433, and Korba: 01123191111.
