Maison Robert: Chamblee

Maison Robert

Back in 2008, I did a round-up of local chocolatiers for Creative Loafing. Atlanta mainstay, Maison Robert, was included on the list. At the time, owners Robert and Patricia Deeb were located in a tiny house off of Peachtree Industrial with a limited assortment of chocolates. The couple recently moved their store to a spanking new location in Chamblee with plenty of room for an open production area, a case full of chocolates and many new products–including macarons, baguettes, desserts, croissants, and a limited lunch menu. The macarons and baguettes aren’t killing it for me. I still think Star Provisions has the best baguettes; and Alon’s has my favorite macarons in town. However, the chocolates are as good as ever, and I am slowly making my way through the desserts. The chocolate-based ones have been the best of the bunch. Lunch is next on my list.

    yeah, the macarons there were not so hot. have you tried the TJ’s macaraons? not far off from Alon’s quality in the freezer section! I think the best macarons I’ve had are from crumb, but they are delivery only here in town. But if you’re right in the city I think you can get by with a small min order. I would be curious to see what you think of crumb’s compared to what you had in Paris. http://www.tastecrumb.com/ I have nothing to do with crumb, btw!

    I haven’t tried TJ’s or Crumb’s, but I hear good things about both. The only problem with Crumb is that there is no place to really buy them unless you go the delivery route, which is pricey! I need to get some soon.

    Haven’t been to Star Prov or Alon, but when visiting ATL from Paris recently, I did make a trip to Maison Robert. Lunch was very tasty and then we had dessert. In terms of sweetness & texture, I found the marcarons to be spot on! Light and airy, with a gorgeous creamy middle, and a variety of innovative flavors like grapefruit and salty caramel (which so happens to be a popular flavor here in Paris too). And by the way, the owners are Robert and Patricia Reeb, not Deeb.
