1. I LOVE this place!

  2. Lovely article Susan, my mouth is watering.

    There should be a warning on your post: DO NOT READ ON AN EMPTY STOMACH AS EXCESSIVE DROOLING COULD OCCUR.

    Your incredible descriptive words made me wish that I could reach out and grab a croissant or two.

    I wonder if they make drooling bibs for adults !!

  4. All the official reviews aside, your recommendation is all I need to know that this place is a gem! I really want to Lear how to make macarons like these and, in fact, bought Pierre Hermé's book. Now I just need to be brave! And maybe order some to be sent in the interim! ~ David

  5. Hi Susan,
    Wow looks delicious, but I'm afraid I will have to wait until I get to Paris for those delicious pastry treats. I live in the country, on the North Shore of Hawaii where the wild chickens follow you down the street. We do have a couple of farmers markets and believe it or not a Frenchman does sell bread and pastries on Sundays. But across the small 2 line street I have some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Waimea Bay to Sunset Beach. I do have lots of Papayas growing so my idea of a good breakfast here is usually poached eggs on english muffins with some yoghurt and fresh tropical fruits. We do of course have some good bakeries but they are in Honolulu, which we go to once a week or so (1 hour away).

    I can't wait to get to France, my passion is painted ceilings and decorative arts, I have been so curious about Laduree where I will get the best of both worlds! Thanks for your inspiration.

    Aloha from Hawaii,

  6. Paul,
    Yes,it is the sort of place that makes your mouth water — if I lived nearby, I am afraid I would be constantly drooling!

  7. It is hard to grab just two! I would need the bib and a more serious exercise routine if I lived nearby!

  8. David,
    I recall that you posted a recipe for the single layer macarons that I didn't get to try yet. I have never made any macarons…but hope to change that soon!
    Thanks for the lovely endorsement.

  9. Hi Liana,
    Papayas, poached eggs, and english muffins! Sounds wonderful. The croissants, macarons, and financiers would go well with an afternoon tea while looking out on the water!
    Thanks for your lovely note.
