When my aunt found out we were in Paris, she messaged me that we should be sure to go to Ladurée. I’m so glad we did.
My French is weak to non-existent, and there are too many -isseries. A brasserie is a restaurant, a patisserie is a bakery, and a confiserie is a candy store.
But what was Ladurée? It had a tea room in the back, which really wasn’t a brasserie-type restaurant. They make the most delicious macarons, so patisserie seemed right, and, in fact, is how they refer to themselves. They also had the best chocolates ever, so confiserie or chocolaterie?
Whatever they are, it is magical. The long line told us that they had something special to offer, and we weren’t disappointed.
To place my order, I took a picture of what I wanted to buy, and then just pointed at the beautiful macarons. I didn’t photograph the macarons, but here are a few of the chocolates.
And here is the some other delights that tempted us.
