This petite cafe just north of Penn Station offers a savory selection of lunchtime fare, but this time 'round, we say skip right to dessert. Pick out one dozen macaron confections at Artichoke Cafe for only $15.
Don't mistake the cafe for another run-of-the-mill midtown deli; it distinguishes itself with its commitment to fresh, homemade soups, salads, sandwiches, and, most important, sweets. Artichoke Cafe's macarons, made in house daily, are delicate, delightful, and a staple treat for regulars. The colorful rainbow of bite-size, meringue-inspired desserts come in an array of flavors like vanilla, mochaccino, chocolate, raspberry, and caramel, with a perfect not-too-crumbly consistency. So where to start? That decision is yours — good thing you have 12 ways to spin it.
