Featured Image for Ladureé


Ladurée boutiques look more like old-school bourgeoisie perfume shops than tea salons. Over-the-top chandeliers complement the windows and glass display cases that are lined with rows of pastel pastries and stacks of colorful gift boxes and ribbons. But the Ladureé experience does not end with window-shopping. Their sweets — and their macaroons in particular — are legendary. In flavors like blackcurrant violet, caramel with salted butter, and orange blossom, these sweet and flavorful round cakes, crisp and light on the outside and soft in the middle, are worth every over-priced bite. Locations in Paris, London, Tokyo, and Switzerland, allow you to indulge your aristocratic sweet tooth around the world.
