Shop Spotlight: Sucré, A Sweet Boutique


The city of New Orleans is famous for many wonderful things, among them eclectic cuisine, historical architecture, and Dixieland jazz. éWith three enticing locations in the Garden District, Metairie, and on Conti Street in the French Quarter, this Crescent City confectionary boasts a luscious assortment of sugary treats.

Sucré is perhaps best known for its macarons—delectable French confections consisting of a layer of creamy mousse (called mousseline) sandwiched between two delicate cookies. With flavors ranging from pecan and salted caramel to pistachio and hazelnut, there are endless opportunities to indulge. The shop even offers a special New Orleans collection that features traditional Big Easy flavors, such as bananas Foster and chicory, as well as a triple-threat chocolate collection—chocolate cookies filled with chocolate-caramel ganache and coated in dark chocolate.

In addition to macarons, the cases at Sucré are stocked with other top-drawer treats. Patrons can sample the shop’s exquisite chocolate candies—including candied pecans, handmade marshmallows, and solid discs called mendiants that are topped with a variety of nuts and fruits. And for those who would rather sip than nibble, Sucré happily obliges with flavored drinking chocolates. Every scrumptious option is certain to satisfy even the most discriminating palate and to guarantee return visits to this amazing sweets emporium.
