“A must while in London”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 March 2014

When walking around London I make sure to visit Laduree on Piccadilly Street and pick up colourful box of macarons to go. The prices are quite high but it is oh so worth it!
Service there is usually quite average so don't expect any special treatment for your money. Just grab this sugar bliss, take away coffee and walk to the Green Park to enjoy fresh air and your box of macarons.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

Having visited their delightful shops in Paris, Zurich, Rome and London, their baked good are so delightful!

Always get some to "Take home" for a special gift or treat for yourself!

“Lovely Treat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2014

My husband and I had tea at the Laduree in Harrod's. I was charmed by the soft, pastel decor and French styling of the tea room. Service was slow, and a bit disinterested, but it wasn't terrible. We really enjoyed our classic tea of little sandwiches, scones and pastries. Everything we sampled was delicious, and the Laduree house tea blend was lovely. We enjoyed our tea at Laduree!

“You have to love Laduree”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 February 2014

I love Laduree anyway, I've been to 2 in Paris and fell in love with the brand. Went on a London day trip today and decided to stop for a quick bite to eat in the one in Harrods.
Beautifully decorated, the staff were wonderful I'm not sure why some people on here had bad service but the staff we encountered were lovely. We had 2 praline mille-feuille and coffee, and it they were delicious as usual. Also, not overly priced either which my OH was surprised about.
I also brought some macarons to take home, I haven't had them yet but I know they'll be yummy! I love everything about Laduree, from the design of their patisseries, the cake and pastry displays and the packaging. Just an art! <3

“This is such a fad. GET OVER IT”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 December 2013

La Duree has to be one of the most overrated obsessions in foodie history. Not only that, but there is absolutely nothing special about their macaroons or the food they serve and the place is utterly charmless as well as the company.

Harrods alone has to be one of the WORST venues to open an outlet for anything, as besides its incredible and extensive food hall, I find every square foot of the building totally characterless and full of vacuous, overly watchful staff and tourists taking photos of inanimate, useless objects whilst in the meantime others spend astronomical sums on crap they will never need or never look at again.

But anyway, back to La Duree.

Cannot believe what all the fuss is about and why there is constantly a queue to get a table whether inside or out. The staff float around mindlessly and never listen to your order. They are also rude, dismissive and stupid.

You get inside and it is as if they are doing you a favour. Meanwhile you sit amongst groups of miserable-looking Harrods dwellers as they stuff their fat faces with what I can only describe as total garbage.

The place makes me want to hurl and so does their food which has perpetual amounts of the most disgusting smelling vinaigrette known to mankind doused all over it as if it were going out of style.

Such horror should be illegal.
