Macaroons par excellence

The original and the best. Expensive although worth every penny. The only irritating thing is the line that at times forms outside of this small shop around the block on Madison.

How could you say anything negative about Laduree macarons?? They are decadent little beasts and were on my list from the moment I decided to travel to NYC. I only wish I had a bigger sweet tooth and could eat them all before they became stale. ;)

I always make it a point to get macarons at Laduree in any city I visit. My favorite are the raspberry flavour, but they are all delicious and quickly become addictive!

I have always fantasized about going to Ladurée, but never got around to it when I was back in New York. That, and I only wanted to go with someone as obsessed with macarons as I am. I settled and went with a friend, but she got the raspberry sorbet with the single raspberry macaron shell on top and loved... More

The macarons are heaven sent! We visited the small storefront on Madison Ave, and fell in love with traditional French macarons! We actually ended up visiting several times during our few months in NYC. The staff was very friendly, helping with any questions we had regarding flavors or ingredients. They are definitely worth the money, averaging around $2.80 per macaron.... More

My friend and I wanted to come here after hearing all the great reviews. The place is small, but not too small. It has a very cozy and authentic atmosphere.The macaroons were decently priced and were very good quality. We tried various flavors and they were all excellent. Would highly recommend!

Delicious macaroons and friendly staff..what more could you ask for? The Orange Blossom and the Strawberry candy flavors were the big hits in our group.

I would never recommend this place to anyone!! I cant believe what happened to us as a family of four. We were so excited to go to Ladurée because we are a huge fan of Macarons and have visited different stores who sell them, so we wanted to try the so called (famous) Ladurée..... After taking a taxi from the... More

The macarons are just like the originals in Paris. I would recommend the salted caramel. I would also recommend buying multiples for later. I believe they are completely worth the money and will visit the store each time that I visit New York. They are addicting!

Such a delight to sit and have tea and sorbet and, of course, delicious macarons. Reminds me of Paris!

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
