Wonderful food and service

You can't go wrong visiting the place that invented the double-decker macaron. The Rue Royal location is the original dating back to 1862. When you've been making pastries that long, you know how to do it. The staff was friendly. The meal was very good, not over the top good, but the desserts more... read more

When you have been making macaroons for this long there is no argument about how good they are. Enough said, just try one.

We stopped here for refreshments and rest in the middle of busy day walking around Paris looking at the sights. We were right away given a table. We had some juice, coffee and cake and macaroons. It was all really lovely. This was first time I tasted macaroons, so I can't comment if they are the best, but they were... More

If your sweet tooth gets the better of you during your visit to Paris, Laduree’s macarons - dessert landmarks almost as famous as the Eiffel Tower - are there to satisfy. They are one of the best known makers of macarons in the world located on the boulevard Rue de Royale (their original location) since 1862. The history of Parisian... More

Had the best lunch and dessert! The place looked grand and so was the service. Loved the decor. Macaroons were a little overpriced but hey ho it's ok once in a while! A must visit place :)

The macaroons from Laduree are pieces of heaven, a dream to be dreamed, alone, by yourself, with eyes closed. It is a personal experience that every good human being on Earth deserves. Just like that!

The macarons are expensive, but it's worth the splurge! You haven't been to France if you haven't been to Laduree! 5 stars! :)

The best chocolate macaroon there is in town. Although, a little pricey, it is a beautiful pastry shop with much to offer during a Paris visit.
