Macaron Cafe

Has anyone else been to Macaron Cafe, on 36th St., just east of 7th Ave.? I am almost hesitant to post about it because it is tiny and already starting to overflow with people, but you must go! Great coffee (where a latte is actually a European-size latter rather than a Starbucks abomination) and fantastic, authentic macarons in 10+ flavors (so far, pistachio and lemon are my favorite). In addition, they serve great baguettes for lunch. Their "Paris" sandwich is Paris ham, delicious gruyere, cornichons, and homemade mayo on good bread, for a very reasonable $6.25! They also serve crepes, hot chocolate, and breakfast pastries, none of which I have tried yet, but all of which look very appetizing, As I said, it's teeny tiny, and they make all the sandwiches fresh, so it's not a good place if you're in a rush, but it's completely worth the wait. Everyone I"ve encountered who works there is very friendly and happy to see people. This has become a little haven in the no-man's-land of Herald Square!
