Ladurée in Lisbon: the tea room you need to know
Ladurée. Louis Ernest Ladurée, founder of the most famous French pastries – Ladurée – took to the letter the quote: “work hard until you do not have to introduce yourself”. Founded in 1862, Ladurée lacks presentations and is a mirror of the Parisian aura that is both delicate and sweet.
Talking about the decor, it’s feminine and elegant mixing warmth with an obvious beauty. Marie Antoinette would certainly have approved it. And not even the Portuguese accent - the floral pattern tiles - is missing. The communion between elements creates a harmonious space where we feel like to linger. A merit of the architect Lázaro Rosa - Violán.
After years of absence in Portugal, Ladurée arrived in Lisbon in a seductive delicious way. Macarons share the showcase with raspberry and passionfruit tarts and other delicate cakes that fill the eyes (and the stomach), in a clear homage to what the best is done in French pastry.

After missing the opening due to another event, we have promised to come back to an Ispahan and lots of macarons. It happened last Friday because there is no better excuse than a holiday to put into practice the sin of goodness. And there we went, me and Daniela, do sin together at Ladurée.
Thus, we tasted the delicious teas, shared macarons as we multiplied laughs and shared the typical gossips of those who live in different cities, proving that when we talk about friendship age doesn’t matter.
So, if you haven’t gone to the recently opened Ladurée in Lisbon, I would highly you suggest you to. The best part is that one can go at any time because in addition to the pastries there is brunch, lunch and even sandwiches. After all, every hour is a good hour to free the Marie Antoinette who lives in us, isn’t it?
