We thought we were done with macarons, but the food universe says otherwise. Macaron masters Ladurée have made their way to Melbourne like it's 2009, with the world famous French patisserie opening in Chadstone.
One of a number of new high-end food offerings at the recently renovated shopping centre, the store features a nine-seat marble bar decorated with mosaic artwork, along with a Parisian-inspired tearoom capable of seating 21. It's the brand's third Australian location, and first outside of Sydney.
The standout item on the menu is obviously the macarons, sweet double-decker creations with which the name Ladurée has long been synonymous. Raspberry, salted caramel, rose petal, orange blossom — the question won't be which one, but how many of each.
Customers can also purchase various other Ladurée items, including teas, chocolates, confectionaries and perfumed candles, along with various other items perfect for personal pampering and/or stuffing down your gob.
Ladurée is now open at Chadstone. For more information, check out the Ladurée Australia Facebook page.
