Paris Pastries: Ladurée at Rue Bonaparte

Bonjour Paris Pastry readers!

After my lovely experience with Ladurée at the Printemps, I hunted down
one of their stores in the 6th arrondissement in Paris.

The shop lies on the corner of a quiet street.
Ladurée's signature green facade can be spotted from afar.

Even bath products.

Ladurée's shop on Rue Bonaparte is not just for picking up pastries, you can
also eat a 3-course meal in the restaurant.

I am not the biggest fan of baking macarons myself, so when I'm in Paris
I have the luxury of buying them.

I bought cinq (five), 4 flavors I hadn't tried before.

Melon, Salted Caramel, Rose, Minty Strawberry & Almond - Cherry.

Rose will always be one of my favorite macaron flavors, which I have
succesfully recreated myself, but I was pleasantly surprised with some
of the new flavors like melon and minty strawberry.

The salted caramel wasn't just filled with a caramel buttercream, but
instead had a thick caramel sauce-like filling!


Bonne Journée,

Daniëlle

This was the shop we walked past most days. The original Laduree. It is very old school inside. My favorite flavor of macaronn would be the salted caramel. Miam miam...
