Ultimate Cake Off winner Tariq Hanna’s high-end confections and gorgeous chocolates are ideal for gifts, or for an afternoon indulgence at this stylish cafe. They’re not overly sweet, so opinions vary from bland to brilliant. The sherbet-hued macarons are more than just good-looking, and the boozy “Big Kid Shakes” are great fun. But we’re partial to the minicakes, like the luscious “Tiffany.” A gorgeous new French Quarter location adds small plates, made-to-order soufflés, and afternoon high tea.
