Ladurée, the most popular of tea rooms
Behind the pistachio green frontage hides one of the leading gourmet addresses of Paris, offering old-fashioned delicacies and a dining room with the feel of yesteryear.
Passing the windows filled with pastries, you’ll discover on the first floor a tea room decorated in Napoleon III style.
On the menu, among the various sweet delicacies, are omelettes, salads and dishes of the day suggested by the chef. Seated at one of the small tables you are privy to the past, because the history of Parisian tea parlours is closely related to that of the Ladurée family who, at the end of the 19th century, decided to combine concepts by installing a typical Parisian cafe in its bakery, which was originally located at 16 Rue Royale. Its reputation was further enhanced by the creation of its famous macaron, with its two layers of meringue sandwiching a tasty ganache, whose recipe remains unchanged to this day, to our great delight!
