Ladurée and the best macarons in the world.

 Laduree from Sam Felder

Luxury, tradition, craftsmanship and a great smell, all in a single place.  Ladurée is beyond your typical pastry shop, it is in a league of its own,  selling thousands of macarons a day thanks to an impecable reputation of quality, after all they invented the all famous double decker macaron.
After the Groupe Holder bought the Ladurée brand an international expansion began, which helped further it's brand recognition and appeal worldwide.
