Our visit to Laduree was the absolute perfect culmination of our short, crazy and wild trip to Paris. It was my daughters 30th birthday. She is in the macaron business in Michigan, and Laduree has always been her inspiration. Through the years she would say, "Someday Mama we will visit there and eat macarons in that beautiful place".

Being asked to bring back home some of the macarons from Laduree, i went in and enjoyed in the little cafe nearby a marvellous hot chocolate (chocolat viennois)... mmmh. so delicious! when you find time, stop by before lunch and enjoy the cosy atmosphere.

I went to get their ever famous macaroons but decided to stay and have tea instead. Pretty place with wonderful ambience. Good place to chill and grab small bites or even lunch. Staff were very accommodative and ever willing to assist. For such a quaint place one is obviously expected to pay a little more than average. But again it... More

Not only does this location have an exquisite store filled with the most wonderful pastries, it has a lovely small restaurant where we chose to have afternoon tea. The St. Honore pastry was wonderful, my partner had a chocolate eclair. Exceptional service.

If you like to have french cakes...it's the place to be. But I would not recommend have anything else than cake. Everything looks fancy and gorgeous but it s not tasty at all. But go for the cakes!!! They are great!!!

Came with high expectations, left very disappointed, very... We had a very poor experience today, in what is supposed to be a great Parisian coffee shop. The food was appalling, even their signature macaroons were stale! Asked for milk for my American coffee, they charged€1.00 extra!!! They have only white bread, no brown or wholemeal, no gluten free bread either.... More

There's a reason why people say this place has the best macarons in Paris. The decor of the shop is fantastic, it's a pleasant experience browsing all of the macarons, and most importantly the texture and taste is truly sublime. If in Paris you really should go and try these legendary macarons! (note, they are 2.10€ each)

This is a very popular Laduree Cafe but we were lucky as we found ourselves visiting early afternoon after lunch but before afternoon tea and got a table within a few minutes. Like a cafes in Paris tables are very close together but it is such an elegant setting with lots of gilding and mirrors that you really don't notice...and... More

The restaurant is beautifully appointed with gilded furniture and wall reliefs for the most lovely atmosphere. He menu is varied so a stop for breakfast or lunch is nice, but dinner is pricey. The best reason to stop here is for a beautiful box of the most exquisite macaron in Europe. They are stunning in looks and flavor and worth... More

Description
"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."
