Business location

  • Tenure: Leasehold
  • Business type: Other retail

Mademoiselle Macaron has two locations in Edinburgh - the shop (café) is
situated on the popular Grindlay Street opposite the Lyceum Theatre just off Lothian Road whilst the preparation kitchen is located in Stewartfield, just off Newhaven Road.

Mademoiselle Macaron was created by our client in 2014 and has grown from humble market stall beginnings. On returning from Paris, our client could not find authentically made French macarons despite their popularity.  Opening on Grindlay Street in 2015, Mademoiselle Macaron has grown organically and rapidly thanks to a variety of revenue streams.    It is a supplier of macarons to the likes of Harvey Nichols and Balmoral Hotel, amongst many, and also caters to weddings, social events and corporate events providing bespoke displays to suit each client’s requirements.  

Along with the wholesale side of the business is the attractive shop and café on Grindlay Street. This is very popular with locals, students and tourists.    Visitors to the café have the option of sitting in to enjoy some patisserie along with an excellent range of coffees and teas or to take away some delights from the display. 

Our client also offers classes on the preparation of macarons - full information about this and the other facets of the business can be found at the business website where a range of the products available can be seen and purchased.

This is an award-winning business, having two Great Taste Awards and was runner-up in the Scottish Food & Drink Awards.

The opportunity to acquire Mademoiselle Macaron represents a “turn key” opportunity for an ambitious individual or dynamic couple to take on a profitable trading business that has genuine further potential to grow and expand further.   The growth of the business is in the product rather than the shop/café outlet in Grindlay Street.
