‘Lette Macarons disappeared during The Pandemic from its freestanding shop/kiosk just outside the food court of the Westfield Century City Shopping Center. But pretty French confections have made a comeback to the mall: Le Macaron French Pastries opened last week in ‘Lette‘s former digs. With locations throughout the US, this is only the second LA-area shop for the Florida-based chain (the other is in Santa Monica). Besides macarons, look for a selection of pastries, French gelato, and European-style beverages.
A solid year ago, I told you about a new French pastry shop moving into a corner space on Montana Ave. in Santa Monica that used to house French fragrance folks L’Occitane. I’m not sure what took so long, but Le Macaron is now open and offering sublime creative confections from their charming spot at 1301 Montana Ave. With locations throughout the US, this is the first LA area shop for the Florida based chain. Besides macarons, look for a selection of pastries, breads, chocolates, and coffees.
