    • It was on the occasion of the marriage of Louis XIV and the Infanta of Spain at Saint-Jean-de-Luz in 1660, that a few macaroons from the Maison Adam were placed on a tin tray. This delicate delicacy was so appreciated by the sovereign gourmet that it will make the success of Maison Adam.

      We still continue to savor this macaroon, whose recipe has remained secret and has been passed down in the family for 13 generations. You will also find their generous Basque cakes and chocolates in the shops of this Luzienne and Biarritz institution.

      For this reason, Maison Adam does not open the doors of its workshop but we recommend that you dive into their universe by pushing the doors of their shops where the prestigious macaroons are surrounded by paintings and works of art from the region. . The parent company is located at 6 Place Louis XIV in Saint-Jean-de-Luz. A shop full of history and memories since you can see at the back of the room, the family buffet and the table where the children used to have afternoon tea. In Biarritz, at 3 Place Clémenceau, macaroons, Basque cakes and chocolates are in a sumptuous setting, where the back staircase lets you see the ocean and the Biarritz lighthouse.

      A sensory experience is offered to you, in their shop at 4 Place Louis XIV called Etxea (house, place of life in Basque). A concher and a roaster, two machines needed to make the praline, let out a delicious smell of roasted almonds from the shop.

      Free entry and accessible to groups.

    Best macarons in the world!!! And also the basque cakes were incredible, the best ones as well!! We loved the store, the decoration, the service, everything. The store has history, it has been a family business for over 300 years, that's incredible!!

    It was an absolute pleasure! I tried their macarons and little lemon cupcake. Macarons were super fresh (even after 3-4 days in the fridge), they melted on my tongue and smelled amazing - like a butter biscuits make by a grandma. The lady who works in the shop was super nice, despite my low level of French. She even slipped a few candies in the paper bag as a gift for my purchase. Supreme service, outstanding pastries and the smell of good quality chocolate in the boutique. The price is 1 euro/macaron if you don't want a fancy box with it. Keep the macarons in the fridge for 10 days max. Take them out 30 mins before consuming.

    5 / 5 Reviews posted by C L (New York City, New York) on 21/09/2019

    Absolutely delicious and these macaroons are the real thing. So much better than the fancy ones you get in Paris and London. Do not miss this while you are in St. Jean de Luz.
