Since I moved to Dallas I have been on the hunt for a macaron shop (I have serious cravings for almond macarons) and had yet to find anything worthwhile. I was so excited to come across JOY Macarons on Instagram and immediately sought them out. Luckily they were less than 10 minutes away from the apartment, so Steven and I went to check it out. I was pleasantly surprised to find this adorable little shop tucked away in a cute little block of shops on Davis Street in Oak Cliff. 
I can honestly say this is my new favorite place and I may be frequenting more often than I should. And the best part… the almond macarons are AMAZING. Along with the rose and lychee, a new favorite. JOY Macarons says “Biting into one brings feelings of elation, contentment happiness, and gratitude – in a word, JOY.” I couldn’t agree more. If you can’t tell by my face in the pictures above, I was clearly elated to be biting into the most delicious almond macaron. Mmmmm… 
If you live in the Dallas area, check them out. You can’t miss the cute paleta cart parked in front of the bakery. It also helps that the owner, Liz, is beyond sweet. I actually dropped my wallet on the floor and she was kind enough to try finding me on Instagram to track me down and let me know! Luckily, I realized I had dropped it before I got too far. So thank you JOY Macarons! Always such a frantic/scary feeling. 
Hope everyone has a safe and happy New Year’s Eve tonight! I can’t wait to drink champagne and celebrate the new year!
