Ladurée Rue Bonaparte

In all Parisian blogging tradition, I couldn’t really go to Paris without stopping by a Ladurée salon to take some snapshots and enjoy a cheeky macaron.

I went to Paris this week to find a place to live as I will once again be a Parisian from September onwards; kind of exciting no?! Although I only had 3 days to find a studio and it was a bit stressful, I was able to alternate visits and strolls in Parisian streets with my camera on 3 absolutely wonderful days: it was hot and sunny and I swear my ballerinas left tan marks on my feet.

Luckily I found a studio very well located in the 7th arrondissement and not very far from the Ladurée rue Bonaparte! So after signing my contract, I couldn’t not stop by the tea salon to celebrate my mission accomplished. Naturally.

The cute shop window already made my mouth water… So much simple elegance combined with vibrant and pretty colours.

I walked in and ordered a simple mini earl grey macaron. And a glass of water please. The lady who sat next to me asked for an iced tea “à la Ladurée” and a rose water and raspberry Religieuse. I will have this level of Parisianess some day! #life

Although it remains very cliché and I would never step in a Ladurée shop on the Champs Élysées I must say I really love their tea salon rue Bonaparte as it is more discreet and you can truly enjoy the elegant setting while enjoying some delicious treats in a very calm tea room. Ladurée is and always will be the French clichéed ideal, but it isn’t an ideal for no reason. And I certainly will go back many times this upcoming year.
