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

There are several Laduree shops in Paris nowadays but I always choose to go to this historic Parisian tea room whenever I visit Paris as a tourist. Service and food quality are generally fine. It is not particularly comfortable to sit in the dining area as table size is small and seating is tight. Its signature macaroons are light and... More

Just before Christmas I was in Paris, and all I wanted was nice cup of coffee. There it was, a coffee shop. It was Laduree so I hoped to have a nice coffee and perhaps something with it. It was full of other tourists and waited a good while. Waited again. As nobody seemed to notice us I kindly asked... More

What can you we about this Parisian institution, everything from the amazing pastries to the delicious food is always perfect and never disappoints! The Vol aux Vent and the club sandwich are our favorites and everything from the pastry department, especially the Saint Honore Rose!

We only tried the macrons and I found them under flavoured and overly sweet while my companion enjoyed them. Personally, I would spend a little bit more at Pierre Hermé for exceptional macrons but again that's me. Best to try both and decide for yourself which you enjoy most.

Extremely expensive for what they offer, but you can't go to Paris without at least buying a Macaroon from Laduree. Everything is good, tasty and high quality.

This is a most elegant coffee/tea house and patisserie, in a room that feels as if you are in Paris of the 1750's, with elegant dishware, beautiful, delicious pastries and great service. Relax awhile out of the hustle and bustle of the street, slow down and enjoy the food and surroundings.

I really waited for something fantastic, because so many people reviewed Laduree macarons as the best. I bought 4 different flavours. Actually they were ok, but I tried much better macarons in Paris! So Laduree is only a famous brand with overpriced desserts.

renowned for its macarons and desserts it would be easy to forget Laduree serves up some great entrees and plats too. The 2 course formule for 35 euros was amazing value for the quality of the food. absolutely stunning foie gras to start followed by perfectly cooked and creatively presented veal. the range of wines available by the glass was...

"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."
