📍 Yorkdale Mall @ 3401 Dufferin St, North York, Ontario
Happy Holidays everybody! 🎅
One of the places I went to during this break is Nadège, which opened up relatively recently in Yorkdale Mall! They’ve always had a few locations downtown. Yorkdale Mall upgraded themselves with stores like Canada Goose, Muji, Uniqlo and Nadège was part of the expansion. I believe the Nadège in Yorkdale is their biggest location – but don’t quote me on that.
Besides their widely known macarons, Nadège also sell cakes, tarts, quiches, chocolate, sandwiches and even offer drinks there! But you know me… My eyes hover towards the macaron section~
I got a box of 6 macarons, which was $15. They had a huge selection of macarons which made it hard just to choose 6 flavours! They had almost 20 flavours of macaron available!! Macaron heaven for me~
The flavours that I picked were:
From top left to top right; Chocolate Fleur de Sel, Salted Caramel, Santa macaron which was a seasonal macaron, consisting of hazelnut and praline
& From bottom left to bottom right; Champagne, Cappuccino and Vanilla
I was excited for the Champagne macaron because it was a completely new flavour and it has a slight shimmer to it, which I thought was super fitting for champagne flavour. The taste, however, wasn’t up to par as the looks, it would be on the low end of my box of 6.
Next up is Chocolate Fleur de Sel which was so good! It was definitely a safe choice for me since I like chocolate, but I thought the design of it was cute as well. Nadège had both Chocolate and Chocolate Fleur de Sel flavours, since I don’t know the difference between either flavours, I just chose the one with the cuter design. Chocolate was just plain brown in appearance compared to the speckled brown of the Chocolate Fleur de Sel.
The Santa macaron was one out of the three seasonal macarons they offered! I only remember the other one being a Reindeer macaron… I didn’t like the other two flavours of the macarons even though they were cute and festive. The Santa macaron was a mixture of hazelnut and praline, which tasted more hazelnut, less praline… But I enjoyed it! Plus, how can you resist how cute and festive this design of the macaron is? 😍
Out of all the flavours, I enjoyed the Cappuccino, Santa and Chocolate Fleur de Sel macaron the most.
The service was lovely, and the girl even provided us samples to try while I was looking for the flavours to choose. The samples, however, was as hard as a freaking rock – definitely not enjoyable at all. But we all know why it was a sample….
Other than that, I would definitely come back to try more flavours. I love the design and layout of Nadège in Yorkdale Mall! Pure white, and full of fun colourful sweets to brighten up the store. They even have several seats for people who want to dine in at that time.
Do note that while paying, tax/tip isn’t included in the price. So a box of $15, was $15 flat – I guess they already added tax with the price, which was nice 🙂 !
Wishing all my readers an early Happy New Year and to savour these holiday moments before it’s over! 😀
Till next time, ♥
