Dearly Dear French Macarons
Ladurée arrives in Sydney!

For all the macaron fans, the wait is over. Ladurée has opened its first Sydney kiosk in Centerpoint Westfield Shopping Mall.

If you haven't had time to visit the Sydney kiosk, here are some photos of what Ladurée Sydney has to offer:


We heard these delicate French macarons are specially imported from Ladurée in Europe, with shipments coming in about three to four times a week. Doesn't that sounds so extravagant?

If Marie Antoinette live in Sydney, this is exactly what she would do to satisfy her macaron cravings.

We avoided the grand opening, knowing all sweet-tooth Sydneysiders would be there.


Our interstate friend pays us a visit and she was keen to try the famous Laduree Macarons. Without further adieu, we made our ways into the city in midst of a heavy rain.

[ADVERT]Look at that Macarons-on-a-cone!

It's all pastel colour-theme here. The famous Ladurée mint colour is the central focus and is hard to miss. We suspected the fittings were all custom made, possibly all imported from Europe too. We absolutely adore the surrounding soft pastel colours too - they just make this small kiosk so dreamy and so French.

When we arrived, there was a steady stream of shoppers. The queue was short and sweet. Just enough wait time for us to browse and decide what we want.

The crowds were far less intense compared to its grand opening.


The centrepiece of the kiosk is the long counter of macarons, long rows and rows of macarons in various exciting and unique flavours. They all look so darn adorable.


Each macaron is priced at $4.00. Yikes, for a mouthful of sweet delight, it sure have a dear price tag. We only purchased a couple of macarons to sample.

It was a new beginning to our French dessert indulgences. These macarons were precisely presented with two macaron shells and various ganache fillings. They were visually and taste-wise satisfying .

The chestnut macaron was our favorite. The creamy paste consists of finely ground chestnut which is aromatic and not-too-sweet. It was crumbly and airy. Ah, it was definitely a dessert bliss with a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate.

If you want to get one of the dolled-up mint pastel Laudree box, a minimum purchase of six macarons is required.


The glass shelves are piled high with Ladurée merchandise, ranging from colourful tote bags, teas, jams and other collectibles.

With all the gift packets and trinkets available for purchase, we felt Ladurée Sydney is more like a tourist-trap than an actual patisserie (macaron) cafe.


But if you want to impress and not price sensitive (keep in mind that the macarons are more pricey when you dine in), then we believe Laduree does it best.
