The quintessential bakery on the corner of Rue Jacob and Rue Bonaparte in the 6th has a lovely tea salon in the back. A popular breakfast place for the locals, Ladurée's tea room actually goes against the grain to create a spaced-out and colonial setting rather than a traditional French setup. Under a canopy, the room is interspersed with faux palm trees, red and green chairs with murals adorning the walls. Tea is accompanied by croissants, eclairs and the likes- just the good old fashioned way. And since you'll be picking something from the macaron emporium on your way back, ask them to pack those for you in one of the boutique boxes- perfect Parisian souvenirs for keepsakes.
