Description: The history of Parisian tea rooms is intimately tied to the history of the Ladurée family. It all began in 1862, when Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller from the southwest of France, founded a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. The story of the Ladurée macaron began in the mid-20th century with Pierre Desfontaines, second cousin of Louis Ernest Ladurée, who had the delicious idea of creating a double macaron, two simple macaron shells joined in the middle by a luscious filling. And the rest, as they say, is history. Today, Ladurée is not only the "Fabricant de Douceurs depuis 1862" (Maker of Sweets since 1862), but also a global company bringing the French Art de Vivre to the world.

Laduree's signature macarons in every imaginable flavor are just simply the best. Just try to choose amongst Coconut, Raspberry, Salted Caramel, Pistachio, Rose, Praline, and Citrus. One bite of these beautiful treats and you're back in Paris! Their sweets are heavenly too, precious little fruit tarts and gold leafed eclairs. The small adjacent tea room serves the most incredible hot chocolate, a rich and smooth liquidy delicacy which easily rivals Angelina's in Paris.

Love the macarons, always crisp on the outside and soft on the inside. Always a lovely variety of flavors. I come for the macarons but have heard great things about their other items as well.

Not the first time being to this store, but it is my first time being to this location. We love their macarons. We dine inside this time. But be prepared that there are only a few seats. We came during weekdays after lunch hour. Luckily there are seats available. It is quite relaxing to dine in if it is not quite full. But to be honest, it is always full and the seats are so closed to each other. You may as well get it to go and enjoy their macarons in the Central Park if the weather is nice.

From the minute you walk into this retro French Cafe you can't help but be charmed!! The colors of mint green, baby blue and soft pink take you back to Paris in the 20's. You're met by an elaborate bar of macaroons in various flavors and available by the piece or by the box...a perfect hostess gift is u ever need one!
Lunch was delicious and the service was great! I have told everyone I know what a lovely experience it was to eat here.

I stumbled upon Laduree while in the city. Just a gorgeous little shop full of tasty treats. I had four different macaroons--just the perfect taste & texture. There were many other flavors & different types of desserts but I wasn't able to try them all. I will go back!
