It’s National Macaron Day today and to celebrate, one Aberdeen business is giving back to a local charity.
French patisserie and cafe Almondine is donating 50% of all its profits today to Friends of Roxburghe House Grampian.
Located on Thistle Street, they are best known for its delicious macarons and delicate French cakes and patisserie.
As well as being National Macaron Day, it’s also International Day of Happiness, giving you even more of a reason to head along to the cafe to splurge on treats.

Happy National Macaron Day!!! To celebrate we will be donating 50% of all profits to Friends of Roxburghe House. There is no better day to come and treat yourself to a macaron!! ??? #almondine #aberdeen #handmade #macarons #almondinemacarons #nationalmacaronday2019 #jourdumacaron
Suzanne Williamson, co-owner of Almondine, said: “It’s something we do every year and we’ve had some family members stay at Roxburghe House so that’s why we’ve chosen this charity to support.
“We’ve got some amazing new flavours available now and we’ve just launched our new spring flower collection. There’s so many bright and colorful macaros. We’ve also got a Cranachan flavour with whisky through it and rolled oats on top, a cappuccino one, a pink grapefruit and Campari one and a lemon and poppy seed flavour too.”
Almondine is open until 6pm tonight, so there’s still plenty time to get your hands on some macarons.
