Words from Tamy

Here at maca, I created a menu around simple, yet flavorful, mouthwatering tastes. I believe that what you are eating, tastes like what you should be eating. There's nothing more frustrating than taking that first bite only to realize that the taste does not reflect what you truly wanted to enjoy.

All macarons are hand piped, and therefore, each individual macaron is unique.

Everything you see here on this website, through social media outlets and in person are created and delivered by yours truly. There is no staff, no machines that automatically create my work. Know that each order is made with love and care and I truly thank you for entrusting me for all your maca needs.

Macaroon vs Macaron

I am often asked the difference between a macaroon vs a macaron and I think the below image depicts the differences very well. Please note that this image was not created by myself or maca, LLC and should be credited to

The Story

maca is solely owned and run by Tamy. The name “maca” is short for macaron. The creation of this Greater Boston macaronerie arose from her passion for all things food related, but baking has always been at the front line of her food love. She enjoys making treats that are simple, yet delicate, beautiful and delicious.


I only use the highest quality of ingredients for my artisan french macarons. Whenever possible, I use organic and/or non GMO products. My flavorings are natural and everything is homemade. I firmly believe you can taste the difference between my maca and someone else's just through the quality of ingredients.
