This Le Mervetty pastry has Belgian dark chocolate shavings atop whipped cream

Oh, macarons. We love you so, but sometimes we need to try something new. And thanks to Le Mervetty bakery, we?ve found our new go-to treat: mini meringues.

The specialty of the house is a Parisian-style cake made of light, slightly chewy slices of meringue layered with flavored whipped cream (think hazelnut, coffee or chocolate). Then, to top it all off, each is sprinkled with a decadent coating, like dark-chocolate shavings or crispy praline flakes (our favorite). 

You don?t need more than a couple bites of the rich and heavenly confection to feel satisfied--which is why we appreciate the two-bite Le Petit size. And if you?re torn between flavors, get an assortment of four ($10) to sample one of everything made fresh in-house that day. 

Should you decide to sit at the counter in this shiny white-on-white jewel box and share a meringue cake with a friend, there?s a medium size perfect for two ($5). And for a crowd, order an eight-inch Le Grand Mervetty ($35), a cake that would be sure to wow any hostess who asked you to pick up dessert.
