Breakfast at Laduree





With decadent decor, beautiful souvenirs (we're talking perfume bottles that deserve to be displayed on every girls dresser) and the most scrumptious macaroons (this is coming from a girl who's tried her fair share haha) its safe to say that a trip to Paris would not be complete without a spot of breakfast in Laduree. 
Situated in Champs Elysees, surrounded by the creme de la creme of the retail world (we're talking Louis Vuitton & Cartier) and just a mere hop, skip and a jump to the Arc De Triomphe. Its safe to say that Laduree resinates an air of grace, with its decadent entrance and breathtaking window displays.  

Greeted by a pleasant waitress (I felt like a little fish in a big ocean ha) we were asked whether we would like to sit in the elegant but busy restaurant (with all the big wigs) or the newly refurbished and peaceful bar. Obviously we opted for the latter. There was something truly enchanting about the bar room (I will let the photos do the talking) so much so that it felt like we had walked through the wardrobe into Narnia, or fallen down the giant rabbit hole into Wonderland. 

Unlike us Brits, the French are known for taking their time during meals, so it was nice to sit back, relax and take in our opulent surroundings. After devouring several Macaroons (come on it would have been rude not to) and savouring a pot of Vanilla Tea we made our way to the rather crowded shop. 

I couldn't resist purchasing one of the many key chains sitting pretty on the counter as a memento of our fabulous morning, in what can only be described as paradise (its like the tea partys I conjured up in my head as a little girl had come to life).  
Going to Paris soon? Then I would definitely recommend breakfast in Laduree!!
Are you a lover of Laduree?!
