LADUREE PATISSERIE (PARIS TRAVEL VLOG) | Eileen Aldis
Before we arrived in Paris I knew I wanted to visit the original Ladurée tea room as I was familiar with its international brand and had tasted the world famous macarons. I’m also a big fan of American writer David Sedaris and had listened to a podcast he did with Rick Steves. Sedaris lived in Paris for about a decade and he said that, during that time, he always liked to take his out of town guests to Ladurée – the original location near the Madeleine – as a special treat. The type of place, he said, where elegant grandmothers go for tea. Let’s just say my pearl necklace was not out of place. Since 1862 this tea room has been a place for people to come and enjoy. Marc and I had a wonderful time choosing a pastry from the shelves bursting with colour and more macarons than you could ever wish for. After devouring them all with our eyes, we chose two to share. We also ordered coffee – café crème Ladurée, to be exact – and it was the best coffee I had in Paris. The whole experience was charming and felt quintessentially Parisian. The details of the gold-rimmed, pastel-coloured cups and saucers, the mirrored walls, painted ceilings, and tiny bistro tables were everything I dreamed a visit to this patisserie would be. I would recommend anyone visiting Paris to treat themselves to Laduree. Hopefully you enjoyed peaking inside this Parisian institution and saw a macaron or two that caught your eye.
