A new Patisserie and Cafe that sells macarons opened up last year near the Yonge and York Mills area.

L-R: White Chocolate Strawberry, Secret Garden, Caramel Macchiato, Sea Salt Caramel, Dark Chocolate, Lime and Honey
Lime and Honey
It was an interesting macaron flavour combining sweet honey and sour lime. I tasted more of the lime flavour than any sweetness from the honey.
The macarons at Butter Avenue were great! Definitely fresh since they had the right amount of crunch outside and a nice soft chewiness inside and the texture was consistent across all the macarons which was fantastic.
Clockwise from top: Caramel Macchiato, White chocolate strawberry, Sea Salt Caramel and Secret Garden
1) The caramel macchiato was strongly flavoured and I thought it left a heavy coffee flavour in your mouth. It was really pretty and an interesting concept - just not my favourite flavour or anything.
2) White chocolate strawberry: The strawberry jelly in the middle paired with the white chocolate in the macaron was very sweet in comparison to the other macarons.
3) Sea Salt Caramel was nice - sweet and salty at the same time
4) Secret Garden was a fragrant Rose macaron with a hint of a berry taste in the jelly in the middle.
The Dark Chocolate macaron was nice too
Inside the macarons
Overall: Butter Avenue offers a good selection of macarons; the flavours may not be as exotic as La Bambouche, but I like the consistency of their macarons here.
