Olivia Macaron began with a sweet, serendipitous meeting between founders Ana Claudia and Michel. They met soon after Olivia, Ana Claudia’s daughter and the shop’s namesake, was born, and they discovered that they shared a passion for delicate and delicious French macarons – an elegant combination of meringue and ganache. With Ana Claudia’s business savvy and Michel’s culinary expertise, they realized that they could bring the best macarons to the people of DC – and now, the world!
