Pistacia Vera is one of the nation’s foremost patisseries. A finely curated assortment of flavor-packed and colorful pastries, desserts and candy line the petite shop’s counters. It makes a perfect breakfast spot (or snack stop) with just the right amount of indulgence. The iced coffee is some of the best in town, and a steal at only $2 a glass. Pistacia Vera is most famous for its Parisian macarons (light as air cookies sandwiching richly-flavored ganache. I’m pretty sure even Parisians would salivate over these. Pistacia Vera can be found at 541 S. 3rd Street in German Village.
