We've arrived from Nice by night train and had a couple of hours to kill until the departure of our train back to London, so we decided to have breakfast at Laduree. We went with our three monkeys (2,7,11yrs). Now you might say that taking 3 tired kids to a wood panelled, delicate china, muted music and haute cuisine place... More

Great variety of sweets, amazing and incredible sweets to loose your mind for! The prices of course are pretty high (you're in Paris and in one of the most known house of macarons). The service though is not so good, I order something and the waitress brought me something completely different, then when I asked for the check it took... More

If you are in Paris you must go to a Laduree store, it is tradition! I tried the rose petal ice cream and it was delicious and has a macaron on top! It is expensive, but it is the most famous macaron house.

I wanted to try it and I did! Prices are 50% more expensive when you eat there than when you take away. Nice but crowded place. In prices comparisons, same as Angelina's maybe a little more. But I preferred the taste of La Duree's desserts by far. I took an unsweetened iced tea, good but expensive at 7 euros and... More

Great answer. Chose 2 pieces of cake , coffee and vanilla tea. To be honest, i had better quality in Starbucks for a fraction of... More

I had gotten several recommendations to eat at Ladurée. We were not dissapointed by the brunch. The food was very good indeed, but perhaps a little overpriced. It is Ladurée after all, and for the experience it might be worth it still. Service was prompt and non-intrusive. If you don´t want a full brunch, you should stop by just for... More

We were on a "Searching for Lost Proust" visit and exploring the Blvd Haussmann neighbourhood was a thrill. As with any long walk in Paris, after a while you have to call in at a cafe or restaurant. This Laduree, near Madeleine church, was attractive because not only was there a pyramid of macaroons in pastel pink and green in... More

Lauree macaroons - some would say the best in the world and I wouldn't disagree! In a gorgeous setting, my friend and I enjoyed afternoon tea in the flagship cafe. Violet tea was to die for and the raspberry, lychee and rose macaroon made my day. The staff were impeccable - going above and beyond to be of assistance to... More

macarons from Laduree are a must have for any first time visitor to Paris! They are absolutely amazing however a box of 6 will cost quite a bit. Worth every penny!

An experience not to be missed when in Paris. Have lunch or tea but don't miss the pastries!! A glass of champagne, a very professional waitress, you are in Paris.... Enjoy it

"AN EXEMPLARY BACKGROUND - the history of Parisian tea rooms is closely linked to the history of the Ladurée family. Everything began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, man of the Southwest of France, miller of his state, created a bakery that became a pastry shop, at 16, rue Royale in Paris. The highly theatrical decoration will be entrusted to Jules Cheret. THE FEMININE TOUCH - under the second empire, with the development of Parisian cafes, Jeanne Souchard, wife of Ernest Ladurée, had the idea of mixing genres: the café and pastry shop, giving birth to one of the first of the great Parisian salons. INFINITELY MORE THAN A PASTRY SHOP - this place full of history with a refined atmosphere charmed David Holder and his father Francis, founder of the Holder group. They decided to buy and then promote and expand the famous Establishment, the Mecca of Parisian culinary creation."
