Ladurée, born in Rue Royale, reigning supreme over all things delicious.
The story began in 1862 when Louis Ernest Ladurée set up his bakery at Rue Royale 16, Paris. After a fire, the place reopened as a patisserie shop with interiors decorated by famous painter and poster artist Jules Chéret . During the Belle Époque, Maison Ladurée became the very first French style tea house and one of the capital’s most highly sought after addresses. The story continues in the 20th century when the Parisian macaron became the center of attention thanks to Ladurée recipe.
The macaron soon became intimately linked with Maison Laduree. This precious piece
of deliciousness reinvents itself year after year, season after season.
For over 160 years, the majestic Maison Ladurée has been synonymous with excellence,
and is the ambassador of luxury French patisserie all over the world.
