Ladurée is a bakery, chocolate boutique and chic restaurant. But you should really go for tea and pastries as early in the morning as possible, when it’s still empty and quiet. The décor is a busy but elegant mix of French Chinoiserie with a huge exotic wall mural and leather folding chairs. I love their signature tea (“Mélange Ladurée”) and pastry (“Ispahan”) with fresh raspberries, litchis and cream between rose-flavored macarons. Heaven! But not cheap. So be sure you have time to linger and enjoy every bite. The Bonaparte location open 8:30am-7:30pm.

Oh what a lovely 'breakfast'!!miam miammercicarolg
The world’s best macaroons? There were no complaints when we took our daughter here for her ninth birthday. The tea services was a pleasure too, as was the painted trompe-l’oeil decoration.
