Since I haven’t been able to shoot much the past two weeks, I thought I’d dig into the archives for this post.
I’ve never been to Ladurée in Paris, so during a past trip to New York, I decided to try the one on Madison Avenue. I’m not a huge fan of macarons, but I like them well enough. I was more curious to see what the place looked like. Photos of the one in Paris are amazing.
Inside, the space was kind of small. Only a few tables, but there was just one other person there, so we got a table:
I know, tiny!
The view from our table.
Across from us. Someone sat down right after I took this photo, so I’m glad I didn’t wait ’til later.
I thought the decor was very pretty.
The display window from the other side. I do like the striped awning.
Now for the good stuff.
I did appreciate the nice china and silver. Such a luxury when you’re used to paper cups from Starbucks.
Can you believe these pastries? Really too beautiful to eat.
The pain chocolat and croissants looked kind of run-of-the-mill in comparison. 😉
We didn’t try any of these, but I’ll bet they are delicious.
There were so many macarons it was hard to choose, but we settled on these:
I’ve forgotten what we ordered exactly, but I know the green one is pistachio and one of the brown ones is coffee and/or salted caramel. As I said, I’m not wild about macarons, but these were really good. It was pretty close to dinner, so we didn’t want anything too heavy.
The orange blossom tea was wonderful and it all made for such a pretty table setting. Thank you to my sweet husband for indulging me!
Hope your week’s going well so far. My back is a lot better now, just some stiffness after sitting.
