High-class restaurant on the world's most famous avenue, Laduree (founded in 1862) also boasts a bakery. Two other restaurants exist at 16 rue Royale, 75008, and 64 boulevard Haussmann, 75009, as a tribute to this eatery's popularity. Expect to pay EUR9 for the omelette Laduree, EUR19-EUR21 for meat and fish, and EUR30 for the lunch menu. You can try the famous "macarons" (biscuits), a specialty of this establishment, or enjoy the raw and cooked vegetable salad along with a variable of other dishes served for lunch and dinner.
I have been to Laduree on numerous occasions, but I have never had the horrible service I had a few weeks ago. When I visit Paris, I always have breakfast at Laduree. I booked a table for 9 a.m. and requested a window seat. The hostess wrote it in the book and said the reservation was made; however, when I arrived the next morning the tables were all full except for one table for four. (There were only two of us.) Since I clearly had a reservation and was leaving for the airport shortly, I asked if we might sit there since we would not be long. We were seated at the table but the manager and wait staff refused to wait on us. We finally got up and left, but not without saying something. I happen to be an American who loves France and, in fact, chose to spend my 50th birthday there, but this treatment is totally unacceptable. No one should be treated the way we were treated at Laduree.
In closing I should mention that we had breakfast at Laduree the day before, and the service was not good. The Spanish couple sitting next to us waited so long that they got up and took their own croissants, even though they knew that was not the protocal. Needless to say, Laduree needs to improve both its service and attitude. Both were pathetic...
the service was great .the best time to visit is i think in july. buisness groups would enjoy the service and food.it was the best place i ever visited .if you get the chance you should definetly try it.
When I entered this supposed "Marveous French restaurant" I expected to be waited on hand and foot, but was completly and totally horrified to be made to wait for food for well over 45minutes. The food was alright, but for that amount of money. I almost expected to be fed.
Overall I wouldnt return.
Well my parents are both chef so one day they took me to france and now i am planning to go again because i grew up around french cusine and the aroma of great food and i want to go there to remember the food and atmosphere and of courese go to that resturant!
The food here was fantastic and original. It had stuff I have never even heard of, knowing I'm not from France but America, and some normal stuff, say salad and hamburgers. I think you should add this place to your trip plans.
Laduree is one of the classic tea rooms in Paris, and there is a location on Rue Royale which makes it a nice place to stop in the afternoon, in the middle of your shopping session on Faubourg Saint Honore.
It was our first trip to Paris and my husband and I found this lovely tea room absolutely charming. They serve exotic teas and a lovely range of pastries. Now that I am back in Malaysia, I am absolutely pining for more! Where can I get them in KL? It would definitely be a necessary stop-over for me the next time I'm in Paris!
Being a dessert and a caffeine enthusiast, this is the place to be. Brilliant and vibrant with delicious food...that is all I can say. You must go and experience the wonders of this place during your visit to the City of Lights!
Don't forget about Laduree on Rue Royale. The brunch on Sunday is out of this world. Fresh pastries, tea sandwiches, eggs, macaroons, fresh yogurt, coffee/tea and much more. The courses are presented in a lovely pace. It's truly a magical meal.
