About Macaron Bar
Macaron Bar is a bakery specializing in French macarons and macaron baking classes, founded in 2014 in Cincinnati, Ohio. Voted Best Macaron in Cincinnati from 2017-2019, Macaron Bar now has 6 locations across 4 midwest cities: Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Louisville and Pittsburgh.
Nathan Sivitz, Macaron Bar’s Executive Chef, is a Xavier University graduate whose passion for baking and the pastry arts led him to study at The Gourmandise School in Santa Monica, California, and privately at several of the finest macaron shops in New York and Los Angeles. The 'pièce de résistance' of his training was a macarons master course at Ecole Lenôtre in France.
Our macarons are made with premium ingredients to ensure a consistent, high quality, and we often collaborate with local businesses to create unique seasonal flavors. We have partnered with Rhinegeist Brewery, Maverick Chocolate Co., Deeper Roots Coffee, Millie’s Homemade Ice Cream, and more.
Our flavors range from more traditional options — Dark Chocolate, Earl Grey Tea, Madagascar Vanilla, Pistachio, Salted Caramel, and Toasted Coconut — to fun flavors like Birthday Cake, Mimosa, and Cinnamon Roll.
