Mecca for maracon fans!
Decadence permeates this elegant tearoom, from the 19th century-style interior and service to the labyrinthine corridors that lead to the toilets. While you bask in the warm glow of bygone wealth, indulge in tea, pastries (the pistachio pain au chocolat is heavenly) and, above all, the hot chocolate. It's a rich, bitter, velvety tar that will leave you in the requisite stupor for any lazy afternoon.
Even better, the most delicious of Parisian boutiques Ladurée is staying open late into the night. Perfect for fulfilling any sudden cravings for the classic macaron (in all its wondrous flavours) or a dessert like biscuit sandwiches from Nantes, French-style lollipops or marshmallows. So when midnight peckishness comes, you know where to go.

This was my first visit to laduree at champ elysees. I am writing
this as a warning to whoever wants to go and dine at this dirty cafe.
Here is what happened with me today. We went to laduree where we were
given a small table close to the gate inspite of so many tables being
available inside the restaurant. We sat and started looking at the menu.
In 2 minutes a waitress came to warn me that i must take care of my
shopping bags because there have been cases of pickpockets. Suddenly i
checked on my handbag that i kept under thr table that was gone. all my
money with my passport and credit cards and ids are gone. How is it
possible that someone could come inside the restaurant and steal my bag
in 2 minutes of my entering the restaurant.
The surprising thing is the waitress came to warn me. If pickpockets are so common why is it that laduree which is such a big name doesnt have a security outside their gate? Why dont they have a warning outside that tells people to take care of their stuff. Above all there was just one camera and when we askes them to chexk the camera they did not let us. Because they themselves are thieves.
I request noone to ever go to this restaurant if they dont want their stuff stolen.
