Macaron Bar opening sweet shop in East Liberty

Macaron Bar

This confectionary shop will sell you sweet treats but also show you how to make them at home.

The latest Macaron Bar location will be a retail store peddling the meringue-encased delights in more than a dozen flavors that change with the seasons.

But their team will also host classes for those of you interesting in replicating the mini sugar sandwiches in your own kitchen.

“They are really technical,” co-owner Michael Shem Wagner tells Next Pittsburgh . “You have to take into account humidity and temperature and under-whipping and over-whipping. It’s a challenge but the class is a fun way to learn.”

Macaron Bar started four years ago in Cincinnati and has since opened locations in Indianapolis and Louisville.

You may have noticed their test store in Ross Park Mall recently.

The new Pittsburgh shop will be in the historic Liberty Bank Building on Penn Avenue.

The menu will not be limited to macarons. Ice cream sandwiches filled with Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream will also be available.

Wash down these treats with a beverage from Lancaster-based Passenger Coffee’s on-site coffee bar.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
