WHAT TO KNOW — 

This world famous pâtisserie has been around for over 150 years and is best-known for its double-decker macaron. The founder Louis-Ernest Ladurée’s grandson Pierre Desfontaines first came up with the idea of sticking two macaron shells together with a creamy ganache filling that started the rise of this once humble bakery located on Rue Royale in the heart of the city. Though the way those colorful and decadent treats were made at Ladurée still follows the classic recipe and techniques, but what makes them special is the delicately crunchy and chewy texture perfectly balanced with the buttery filling that simply just melts in your mouth. It is a bite that reminisces the opulent heritage of the Frenches as well as a romantic love affair.

Ladurée at the Grove is a relatively small venue compare to the chain’s other stores, but the interior design is definitely authentic to its luxurious aesthetics and speaks the pride of finest craftsmanship.
