Long line, but worth the wait. We picked up a sleeve of macaroons, rode the metro to the Eiffel Tower, and enjoyed our snack while we waited in line at the Tower. The taste, texture, and presentation were all excellent. They are $3 or $4 a piece, but they are awesome.

The food was delicious but the service attitude needs to improve and would have made the rating excellent. We did not let that detract from the food, room & location away from the madding crowds.

The croissants and pastries are quite good, and if you want to enjoy tea or coffee in the downstairs room, it is crowded all the time; service is friendly but not particularly good. The restaurant upstairs is not good: if you have to, just enjoy the pastries downstairs, and the macarons are quite good. Laduree is the name of the... More

Just average. Once for experience is good enough. Perhaps buying take away next door is more economical.

Laduree surely had the best macaroons that I have ever consumed by far. They are created to perfection and have a wide variety of flavours and sizes. The only downsides are the long wait lines (25-30 minute wait), and the extreme prices. Though, I would definitely go back if I'm in Paris again despite the downsides! The pistachio macaroons are...

This is a review of the take out counter only. YUMMMMMM. Bought an assortment of Macaroons and a Palmier. Loved every bite. A bit pricey at €2/macaroon - and even more if you buy a box for them to go in - but you get what you pay for. Incredible flavor... Service was quick and efficient. The staff spoke perfect... More

Place of exception and luxury. If you want to enjoy an afternoon tea with macarons (not macaroons!), that's the place to go and feel like a real Parisian!

When in Paris... I normally didn't enjoy macaroons UNTIL I tried them here! The place is really cute, service was OK but the food was worth it! Definitely try the macaroons but french toast (recommended by our waiter) was very good as well!
