There were actually cherry bits in it!
We also got an almond chocolate croissant ($3.00) (not pictured here) which was delicious - buttery, flaky and there was a generous amount of almond paste and chocolate. Absolutely my new guilty favourite.
Overall their macarons are decent..Not the best I've had! - the crust was perfect but it was the filling that threw me off slightly - the filling is what carries all the flavour and I found that a majority of the macaron had a very subtle flavour to it. Also, I like to cut into my macarons before eating them and as I was cutting them, the tops would slide off completely. Perhaps they were sitting out of the fridge for too long but it left me with a bad impression of the macaron.
Another unpleasant thing to note: The staff can be a bit rude (perhaps they believe they are working at a pretentious patisserie and thus can show attitude?)
