About Us

Established in 2010…

It all started with a dream of owning a coffee shop and patisserie. Gilles and Jacqueline Gobin arrived in the Queen City in 2000, when Gilles accepted a position with Hotel Saskatchewan as Executive Pastry chef. After 10 years of hard work, and a reputation for excellence in his craft, he finally saw his dream come to reality.

“It saw the resurgence of the macaron craze began to spread in places such as New York and Las Vegas, I knew it was time and opportunity to finally put my dream to reality.”

Today, Le Macaron is selling over 10,000 macarons each month!
