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

It's like eating sashimi in Japan, nasi lemak in Malaysia, wanton noodles in Hong Kong. You have to pay homage to Laduree even if you're not a macaroon lover - and I'm definitely not. This is an amazing place with, I must admit, a fairy tale feel to it.

Stopped in here with my wife to purchase Macarons and whatever else we could find! So many flavors, so many yummy options! The inside of the shop was decorated to the nines. Everything we bought, we enjoyed tremendously!!

Laduree is famous and deservedly so. Our visit to the Laduree on Rue Royale (near the Madeline Church) was nearly perfect, marred only by an embarrassingly loud American a few tables away. Service was impeccable, food wonderful, desserts absolutely amazing - so good! I had the croque monsieur, unlike any I've had before and delicious; my wife had an equally... More

Had heard about this bakery before vacationing in Paris and was excited to try their macaroons. We shared a variety package and they were excellent. Each colored cookie had a distinctive flavor and they were fresh tasting. Every bakery seemed to sell these, but we didn't try any others.

First time I've ever given a terrible review on here! I have lived in France for 8 months, and I came back with my friends as a weekend getaway in Paris. This was one of the main things I was excited to do, seeing as I'd done almost everything else in Paris. The menu outside showed BOTH the meals AND... More

"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."
