Blueprint recommended Laduree in their Paris guide* and such a solid recommendation coupled with Rachel's "you-must-visit-Laduree" advice made the famous macaroon-producing patisserie top on our list. Oh how we loved it...so much that we both agreed it was one of our two favorite dining experiences in France.
My sisters and I do love a good tea room and Laduree's fresh herbal tea offerings were irresistable. Although slightly overpriced, the food we ordered was delicious and much appreciated after a few days of crepes and baguettes off the street. For added humor I took pictures of everything I ate, as well as the table setting, and the Italian couple next to us thought I was c-r-a-z-y.
p.s. As an added bonus you can order their famous macaroons after your meal to avoid the incredibly long lines downstairs. Oh and their pretty green boxes...gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!
