Ladurée is probably the best ‘macaroon’ shop in Paris! It is also great for a light lunch with a glass of wine and/or tea/coffee/pastries that are all delicious. The engine of the business revolves around the delicious collection of 'macaroons' of exotic flavors including blackcurrant violet, Caramel with salted butter, orange Blossom and liquorice- Lemon, etc.

The macarons at Ladurée cannot be beat. They are the BEST that I've ever had. 5 glorious stars. I came here during the day to buy a box to take home and the lines were long. They move quickly though and most of the staff speak English. Everyone was really nice. I did have to yell over the noise as I was ordering but it was worth it.
As we were there, we considered having tea or dinner later in the day at Ladurée. Dinner won out when I saw the menu. They had foie gras and they had a prix fixe menu. I quickly asked the hostess if we could make a reservation and she was quite helpful. If you want to have dinner at a busy restaurant in Paris, make a reservation in advance. One day, if I'm back, I may come here for tea because the macarons are that fantastic. They also have a full bar in the back. The restaurant is pretty big inside.
Once we came back for dinner we just told the hostess about our reservation and we were seated upstairs in the corner. I decided not to drink because the prix fixe was already 51 euro. The maitre d' asked us if we would like water and gave us two choices: still or gas. We said "still" but didn't realize we could have ordered tap. Instead, they brought us a 750 ml bottle of Evian which cost about 8,10 euro. Once we realized that we were paying for water and sparkling lemonade, we sat and drank every last drop of it.
For my prix fixe, I went with the pan-seared foie gras with apples, lamb encased in puff pastry with black truffle mashed potatoes, fruit roll mouse cake, and vanilla

wow. This place is known for their macarons, but we also went for dinner after looking at the menu after we picked up said macarons. Macarons are 5 stars! The 4 is really for the dinner
It's not cheap at all for a meal. It is definitely up there, however, the food was pretty good. Was it worth the large price tag, I don't know. I'm still going to have to think about it.
We went for the prix fixe dinner, which I didn't partake in because I had a mild case of food poisoning that I was recovering from and honestly probably would have been okay with just a bagel. I ordered the mini burgers (basically 4 sliders) and my friend got the prix fixe with foie gras and lamb with dessert, oh and it comes with 2 macarons. She loved her meal, and my burgers were quite yummy, with the 4 huge fries. It was not a pile of french fries, just these large fat logs of fried potatoes.
They come out with a dessert tray and let us pick from it - there are also other options in the menu that they make. After a recommendation from our waitress, we chose this mixed berry, cakey creamy thing that was pretty delicious. Glad she recommended it to us.
Unfortunately our waiter (guy that helped us before our waitress) didn't ask us if we wanted tap water and just brought us a 1 Liter bottle of still Evian which we had to pay for. We weren't exactly thrilled with that, since a) there was only 2 of us, the 500mL size would have been fine especially since we also ordered sodas b) we had to PAY for the 1L bottle c) we could have gotten FREE tap water.

The über famous patisserie is all that. The most traditional location, at Champs Elisees has been recently rebuilt due to a fire and it feels more charming than ever. Expect long lines at the boutique, but it's well worth buying the delicious macarons or other pastry pieces of art. The lines for sitting at the salon de thé are long too, but they move fast. Flawless service, gorgeous china, delicate details and, of course, the perfect flavors are well worth taking the time to sit down and sip on a cup of tea or hot chocolate here.

Ladurée is a must-visit in Paris. In my opinion, they serve the best macaroons on the planet (sorry Pierre Herme). A wide variety of flavors. My personal favorites are salted caramel and vanilla.

Ladurée, at the top of the Champs Elysees near the Arc de Triomphe, is the reputed home of the macaron. You can have a sit down breakfast there or just shop for the macarons and other pastries. The breakfast is a bit overpriced but the macarons aren't as expensive.

The prettiest of all the Laduree locations in Paris, this restaurant on the champs is always busy and service can be terrible, but it's still my favorite Laduree. Along with the classic restaurant, a new, very modern and trendy bar has opened at this location and the food and drinks are meant to be great. This branch of Laduree was the perfect place for my bridesmaids luncheon, which we held in a private room upstairs. Everyone at Laduree was incredibly helpful, prior to the luncheon and they even let me design a custom menu, because I wanted something lighter than what they normally offer. We ate six different appetizers, all of which were savory versions of traditional sweets and all were great, but the basil and tomato tart was everyone's fave. (N.B. my shared pictures of Laduree were taken by Corbin Gurkin, at my bridesmaid luncheon)
