Laduree in London

Laduree, a Parisian tea room, bakery, and gift shop has an entrance from inside Harrods, or from the Hans Road outside. In addition to offering breakfast, lunch, and tea, this shop was a visual feast for the eyes, and an unbelievable treat to visit.
Best known for its macarons, we found that the tarts and sweet desserts were amazing to drool over too. French pastry at its finest! With a shop recently opened in NYC (and on our list to visit some day), it's possible to find these patisseries in the USA now. Although we passed over all the special tarts, we were eager to select a few of the macarons to enjoy later in the evening.









Crispy crunchy almond macaron shells joined together with a tasty ganache filling create a delicious small round cake (cookie?) with a crisp exterior and a smooth soft middle.
Made fresh daily, with traditional flavors such as coffee, caramel, lemon, chocolate, raspberry, pistachio, and rose; you can also select seasonal flavors such as cherry almond, apricot, cherry blossom, and earl grey. The trick is to remember which flavors you ordered, and which one is which. It is suggested that you enjoy these within 4 days of packaging - okay, no problem!
The combination of unique flavors and delicate colors creates the perfect macaron. The packaging simply completes the whole look. Such a treat!

We have a macaron bakery in Pittsburgh. So every time we go to the movies, we have to stop for some! Delightful. Thanks for sharing all of these great places in London! xo
