laduree macarons in Paris France

The history of Ladurée goes all the way back to 1862 when Louis Ernest Ladurée founded a bakery in Paris at 16 rue Royale. But due to a fire in 1871, the bakery was changed into a pastry shop which would soon become world famous for high-quality treats of all kinds.

Today it is a well-known tourist stop in Paris but trust me they are not resting on their laurels like many such “famous” businesses. Even though they see hundreds of tourists every day Ladurée’s service and quality remain top notch.
