Inventor of the traditional French macaron, Ladurée's Rue Royal pastry shop is the original flagship store in Paris. And if you happen to be in Paris then take out time for a lovely breakfast or an afternoon tea at this macaron cafe. The archetypal pastry shop has a cozy tea room in the back where they will fix you up with a cup of hot tea and sandwich. The setting is reminiscent of an 18th century teahouse with its Victorian fixtures, gilted mirrors and intricate detailing on walls and ceiling, perfect for those intimate tête-à-têtes. If you're dropping in just to pick up sweet somethings then they will gladly wrap them up for you in the most elegant boutique boxes, ones you'd want to keep safe in showcases for admiration. And the Marie-Antoinette, Caramel with Salted Butter and Orange Blossom are three varieties you must definitely try!
