Parisian Macaroons: Pierre Hermé & Ladurée

What would be a trip to Paris without tasting macaroon?

Pierre Hermé and Ladurée are the two most famous macaroons houses in Paris. Although some other places are highly recommended to get some of the preciousness (Hugo & Victor, Carette, …), the two dinosaurs that are Pierre Hermé and Ladurée are a must stop.

During your stay, you should definitely have a hot chocolate and one big macaroon at Ladurée 16 Royale, 16, rue Royale – 75008 Paris. This tea salon created in 1862 is the first bakery opened by Louis Ernest Ladurée. You will enjoy the decoration in original wood paneling and painted ceiling.

You might also stop at Pierre Hermé, 72 rue Bonaparte 75006 Paris – my favorite. Be cautious, you could fall madly in love with the new collection “Les Jardins”.

Did you pick your favorite ?
