Picture this: You're heading along the Champs-Elysées, the Arc de Triomphe looming larger on the horizon. So close, yet so far—you need something to distract you from the long trek ahead. J'ai une idée brillante! Macarons! Conveniently located about six blocks from the famous landmark is Ladurée, a tiny shop featuring quintessential Parisian décor and a whole lot of macarons. If you want to make Ladurée more of a resting-of-the-feet than a stop-and-go snack, grab a seat on the patio and watch the parade of people pass by on the famous Avenue.
