Patisserie Manon

This little gem of a shop can be tough to find if you don’t know where you’re looking. To save you some time, drive to the office complex behind Roy’s on Charleston. There, you’ll find a great little patisserie with some of the best macarons off of the Strip.

When you walk in you’ll probably be sucked in by their display of sweet treats. Yeah, they all look delicious. But once you get past that, you’ll see a counter and display of some of their savory options. I opted for a simple ham and swiss on a baguette (about 7 bucks). It’s made to order and is quite large — at least a foot if not more. For the price and size, I think it’s a good lunch time bargain. The only negative is that the bread was a little too hard for my tastes. Instead of it being crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside, it was just hard all around.

On my way out I just couldn’t resist the macarons ($1 each). My mind was saying no, but my stomach was saying, “hell yes!” I figured a little treat couldn’t hurt so I got six of them (pistachio, chocolate, lemon, chocolate mint, blueberry, vanilla). All were delicious with a light and crunchy shell and soft, creamy center. But, the standouts were the pistachio and chocolate mint.

I’ll be back to try more of their savory dishes, but I’m sure I’ll walk out with a few more macarons or pastries as well.
