19. Afternoon Treat: Cafe Cre Asion @ Sydney CBD

I absolutely love the macarons from here. They’re sweet but not too sweet.

The shop front, it really brightens up the dim alley-like street

I think they said there were 27 flavours that day, woweee!

Cool seats

The seating’s so cool. So hip.

Macarons and green tea latte

After a difficult decision-making session, we decided to go with 8 macarons and 2 green tea lattes

Green Tea Latte – This was amazing and I love how it’s served in a bowl

Location: 21 Alberta St (Sydney) – It’s pretty much a few streets behind World Square. It’s tucked away in a very small street, almost like an alley way.

Trading hours

I’ve been here twice before and since I hadn’t been back for quite a while I decided it was time for a revisit. It was nice to see my favourites still there but there were also a few new flavours (or maybe I’ve just never seen them) which got me super excited. I love how there are fillings in some of the macarons; It makes it unique and above that, they’re not too sweet which really gives it an edge over other macarons – in my books anyway. The black caramel, green tea and the lavender flavours were probably my favourites, they were so good!

For what it’s worth:

Oh! There’s also conveniently a power point in a corner which warranted bonus hearts <3. I was in a low-battery crisis at the time and you have no idea how excited I got when I saw the power point. My face literally lit up and my voice went up 100 decibels. Well, it would’ve if it could. I think I have a cafe power point obsession. They make having electronics with short-battery life so much more bearable. I wish all cafes had power points.

Power point

I hope the staff didn’t mind me using it…They were friendly :)

And I couldn’t help but draw a connection between the arrangement of the green tea lattes and plate of macarons in the photo below to Walt Disney’s one and only Mickey Mouse. How’s the resemblance?

  1. I’ve heard so much about this place but didn’t know it was so close to Town Hall!! The ultimate question is, how much each? Lindt’s like $3 now, hefty pricetag for some meringue haha

    1. Hey! It is quite hefty but slightly cheaper than Lindt. It’s $2.70 per macaron, $21 for a box of 8, $36 for 14 and $55 for $24. So once in a while’s okay, you should definitely pay them a visit :)
