Caffe Concerto Macarons & Cupcakes
Do you want macarons?!! then come here... my goodness there are a lot! I walked in here and RAN to the back of the store. My heart quickened.. HEAVEN!!!! AHHHHH
They are so preeeettty!.
This place is in Koreatown, LA off of Serano and 6th street. I initially saw it while at the restaurant next door, but it was closed that time. So, I made a mental note to come back. Glad I did.

|Oh my goodness gracious|
okay, got off topic.
So with the cupcakes, both of the cakes taste the same. Just plain vanilla? All of the flavor is in the frosting. The frosting is very.. buttercreamy. Not sugary, not too sweet, but a little oily in the mouth. The olive flavor is more like a mild olive, not the sour kind. Oh I know! It tastes like sweet olive oil. It was fun to try once, but I don't think I'll get it again.
Macarons: Salted Caramel was the best. Followed by black sesame. Overall, they were all delicious, but these two stood out. The texture here is a little softer than I usually like.
