“Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my honey”, as the song goes. Hard to believe anyone can resist a box of macarons or chocolate—special occasion or not. A visit to the charming Ladurée shop at 8 Rockwell is a delight to the senses, to say the least. The soft pastel interior mirrors the sweet scent of vanilla and sugar, welcoming you the moment you enter the door.
It’s a bit like going into Marie Antoinette’s private quarters and sharing her love for sweets and treats (as seen in the iconic film). So it’s a fitting tribute that the shop has limited edition jams, chocolates and packaging inspired by the young queen, available all throughout the summer.
What better way to pay tribute to the queen in your life, a.k.a mom, than an assortment of desserts, key chains, tea sets and even an adorable pop-up book for a gift this Mother’s Day? Can’t think of anything more apt! They say the French know their desserts and Ladurée is probably the most popular export outside the capital and definitely the most loved.
Ladurée is located at the Ground Floor of 8 Rockwell.
