La Belle Miette is a small French patisserie specialising in macarons. We have four locations – 30 Hardware Lane Melbourne, 8 Collins Street Melbourne, 432 Church Street Richmond and a pop-up kiosk at Chadstone Shopping Centre.

La Belle Miette means the “beautiful crumb” or, more broadly, “beautiful small thing”. We specialise in small delights.

To complement our belles miettes, we also stock tea from Mariage Frères and artisanal lemonade by Hansi of Alsace.

    Mmm…just bought a box of 6 as a gift for a friend and two for myself.

    Seriously considering getting into the gift box and giving my friend 2 or 3.

    The rose ones, yummy yummy.

    Best one ever. I dont really like Macarons until I taste one in your shop. I love the Strawberry Vanilla!

    La belle miette by far, produce the best macarons I have yet tasted. They’re so deliciously crispy (without being dry, of course) with the perfect amount of fluffiness on the inside :) I study just down the road from hardware lane so it’s quite easy to find myself at the counter of these outstanding delights, in their lovely rows daily! I’m slowly becoming addicted to these special macarons! I can’t even pick a favorite as they all have their inidividual little attributes to send you to Macaron heaven :D
    All this talk about the perfect little wonders make me want one! Can’t wait for tomorrow :)

    Absolutely divine!

    I was addicted to macarons while living in SF where they have become fine art- and I have now found my new dealer!!

    I stumbled across your shop today and I just had to send you a note to congratulate you on your beautiful macarons. I blush to say I sampled quite a few, but I have to make special mention of the sake and cherry blossom. Devine. I will definitely be back for more.

    Your macarons are amazing! I have been telling everyone I can that they must try one. Yum, yum, yum :)
    Violet & Blueberry, Pink Grapefruit and Lemon are my absolute favourites!

    As a big macaron lover, your macarons are by far the most scrumptious, divine melt-in-your-mouth little treats I have tasted since I’ve moved to Melbourne. My biggest compliments to you two amazing pâtissiers.

    Lucky for me, I live literally just around the corner from your shop! :)

    Amazing! C’est tout ce qu’on peut dire.
    Nous serons de retour pour voir votre belle pâtisserie française à nouveau.

    Thank you so much for my Mother’s Day order! The gift boxes were so adorable. My boyfriend’s mum like the macarons so much that she went and bought almost $100 worth for visiting friends from Hong Kong.
    Your macarons are by far the best I’ve had yet in Melbourne! It’s really messing with my efforts to cut out sugar… But it’s totally worth it :D

    I was taken to your beautiful store last week and devoured within seconds 4 perfectly made macaroons! Pls let me know if you have any events or news you’d like me to comment on my blog!/VictoriaUpward – dedicated to macaroon and chai tea haunts in Melbourne ;)

    Love your work guys!

    Having just devoured a Violet/Blueberry, Rose and Cherry Blossom I can say that I am now your biggest fan. I am looking forward to tonight where your macaroons will be featured as the birthday cake for someone who doesn’t like cake! Thank you!

    One of the best macaroons that i have ever had, including those experienced in Paris! The delicate crust and soft, airy texture of the biscuit followed by the smooth creamy filling.. Soo good, the blueberry just equisite. Love your work! I will be back soon!

    Had the pleasure of visiting your beautiful store today. Had planned on
    trying one Macaron, instead bought 10 macarons. Once I started, couldn’t stop. Not ashamed to say , ate 6 . I was pressured to give the remaining 4 to friends : ( Beautiful, devine and delicious macarons. Love each and everyone I ate. Will be back for sure. How lucky Melbourne is to have such a beautiful store with such delicious macarons. Compliments to the establishment.

    I brought my kids in for our very first macarons and now I can’t even bring myself to compare others. They were exquisite! My favorite is the violet and blueberry but when I sampled the raspberry one I felt like I was eating straight from the jam jar! Awesome!

    I have been to this shop twice and every time the macaroon have been so mouth watering, i just love them so much, every time i go to Melbourne i always ask if we can go there, but the line is so long but it is worth the wait for the beautiful little yummy things. I want to make them but they wont be as perfect as theses ones in the store.

    Macaroon Lover :)

    When ever one of my work mates goes to Melbourne (from the Hunter Valley) I always ask him to bring me back some Macaroons…. Much to my suprise he presented me with the beautiful box and I knew straight away that I had to be in for a wonderful surprise….. I think I nailed twelve Macaroons in half an hour!!! Delicious :-)

    These macaroons were fergalicious. They are the best, better than te macaroons made in their origin, France.
    This is a above 5 star little shop.
