”we particularly liked the salted caramel flavour and the gingerbread one, with its kick of cinnamon. And the chocolate one. And the lemon. Oh hell, we loved them all” Jay Rayner, The Guardian

Why we love it

As one of the most famous makers of macarons both in and outside of Paris, the name Ladurée is iconic around the world. Ladurée sells around 15,000 of their mini melt-in-the-mouth macarons each day - a small portion of which are enjoyed in one of their four London branches. Covent Garden is Ladurée's most recent "salon de the" to open in London; bringing luxurious French chic to the iconic Market Building.

What's Included?

  • Enjoy an afternoon of macarons and champagne for two people at Ladurée in Covent Garden
  • Indulge in a glass of Ladurée's signature Champagne each, with a selection of four Ladurée macarons per person
  • Take home a Napoléon gift box of four further macarons to share
  • Service charge (12.5%) is included

Exclusive to TRULY

  • This experience is unique to Truly guests

Description

Established in 1862, Ladurée is one of the best-known patisseries to still be gracing the planet. Though the macaron was originally bought to France from Italy in in the 16th century, one of the pastry house's very first chefs, Pierre Desfontaines Ladurée, is responsible for the macaron as we know it today. That is, two sweet merangue shells stuck together with a creamy ganache.

A century and a half later, Ladurée accumulated such success from its Paris roots that it opened its fourth branch in London - a glamorous tea salon situated on the roof of Covent Garden's iconic market building, overlooking the busy cobbled Piazza below. In contrast to its sister shop in Harrods, Ladurée's Covent Garden branch is an independent boutique, and more closely resembles its father shops in Champs Elysées and Place de la Concorde.

The Covent Garden patisserie is the perfect representation of the tea salons that made Ladurée and its macarons famous in Paris. Once you've chosen your preferred spot to enjoy the experience (be it in the portrait-adorned dining rooms, on the bijou balcony, or a la table on the Piazza), you'll have a selection of macarons to chose from and including flavours such as vanilla, chocolate, pistachio, raspberry, praline and, a popular favourite, caramel with salted butter. A glass of Ladurée's signature brut Champagne, another pleasure meant to be savoured, will accompany your macarons. Before you leave, you will be presented with the menu again and offered to choose a box of your favourite macaron flavours to take home with you.
