Sugary treats for sweet toothed travellers
If we’re talking cakes and sweets in a city like Paris, the mythical and sugary delights of Ladureé are quite simply a must. The cult TV series Sex in the City and films such as Marie Antoinette by Sofia Coppola, have transformed Ladureé into one of the City of Light’s most famous tearooms. The company was founded in 1862 and is known all over the world for its macarons. These round, dainty cakes are filled with cream, come in all sorts of colours and are a true Parisian delicacy. Ladureé has various romantic and chic tearooms dotted around the city, with the most central at number 75 on the Champs-Élysées.
