I never visit Paris without making at least one visit to Laduree, one of my favorite patisseries in the world. Just looking at their display case full of macarons, eclairs, croissants and other delectable sweets makes me happy! I've dined at Laduree on a couple occasions as well and recommend ordering from the brunch/tea menu rather than the savory lunch/dinner menu. While Laduree's viennoiserie selection is simply exquisite, served with butter wrapped in its own Laduree signature light mint green paper and various jams, the savory food selections are unspectacular (though prettily presented).
Along with the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, D'Orsay Museum, Notre Dame and Arc de Triomphe, a visit to Laduree is a MUST for any visit to Paris!

Cold tomato and pistachio souffle - so salty I actually got a headache! Stick to the macarons!
