25.05.2011- Truly Scrumptious

Wednesday, 25 May 2011

One of my favourite places to visit in London is Covent Garden, and, as regular readers will know, I'm a massive fan of cakes (or anything sweet and edible for that matter!) So, with this in mind, imagine my joy when I found out that those lovely Parisian patisserie connoisseurs at Ladurée were opening a branch in the heart of Covent Garden's famous piazza! To say I was excited is a bit of an understatement.

Ladurée, founded in 1862, are famous for their beautiful pastries, ornate cakes and world-renowned double layer macaroons. The company already has two branches in London, one in Piccadilly's Burlington Arcade and another within the luxurious surroundings of Knightsbridge's Harrods department store, but this more centrally located location looks set to further broaden the appeal of the Ladurée brand. As well as serving the traditional macaroons, cakes and patisserie, the restaurant (which is situated across two floors within the market complex) also offers a range of main courses, all, of course, developed from the finest French cuisine. I for one can't wait to pay a visit and experience a slice of Paris in the heart of London!


You can find Ladurée Covent Garden at Unit One Covent Garden Market, London, WC2 8RF, or alternatively visit www.laduree.fr for more information.

What do you think of Ladurée opening in Covent Garden? Will you be paying a visit?

  1. Hi there Sarah - thanks for your comment. Lovely to see Laduree are in Covent Garden - their stores are so pretty, and their packaging is gorgeous. In Paris you see their little pistachio-green vans trundling round the place. Congratulations on finishing uni - it really feels like the end of an era, doesn't it? - and best of luck with the future... Sarah
