abc wednesday —L is for "Ladurée"

A Paris pastry shop where you can find macarons,
that meringue-y, jammy, buttercreamy concoction
that the French do SO well.  Pierre Hermé has arguably
Paris' best, but Ladurée provided our fix more than once.
[To see more of the letter L, go here.]


  1. looks like a lovely place to shop.

  2. And your beautiful photo of Ladurée lured me into commenting, dear Alexa! Their packaging is gorgeous. As far as the macarons ~ I look forward to doing my own comparisons between Ladurée and Pierre Hermé sometime soon-ish.

  3. enjoy Paris, will be there soon and try out your suggestions

  4. Ladurée is a MUST ! Everything in their shop is attractive, even the counters, boxes, shopping bags.... Have you ever seen the little "carosse" they use when selling during art exhibits ?
    Glad to read from you, Shell ! Hope it means you're feeling better !

  5. Looks like an interesting place to dine in .. My L is up!

  6. I am a huge fan of LaDuree. Not only are there macarons wonderful, I love their hot chocolate.

  7. Ladurée windows are always fabulous with their fashionable fabrics and patterns... not to mention that macaron tree! miam-miam!

    (was that the one on Rue Jacob?)


  8. So delectable! & such a nice display.
    Did you bring some of these sweet macarons home?
