Those golden macaroons behind the glass cases at coffeeshops like Gimme! Coffee, Irving Farm, and McNally Jackson Books? They all come from Danny Macaroons, and there are many reasons to love these gems. We'll start with the size, which is an ideal four-biter, not too big or small, just enough to accompany a warm latte. And then there there are the flavors. Salted caramel (pictured) is my go-to, but I return for flavors like German chocolate, roasted almonds, and red velvet. The macaroons boast a crunchy exterior and consistently moist, borderline creamy interior, so fresh and never too sweet. For the largest variety of flavors, order online or visit Danny Macaroons at Smorgasburg every Saturday.
