Paris (1): Alice in Ladurée

If you have recently been to the Printemps Haussmann in Paris, you've noticed the massive refurbishment going on and may have been miffed not to find the Ladurée café on the first floor. Don't worry, it's just tucked away whilst works are finished.

In the meanwhile, and to celebrate the release of Alice in Wonderland fantastic movie by Mr Burton, our friends the macaroon makers are offering us something really special in the lower ground floor of the department store: a tea room entirely themed around Alice, so much so that I'm expecting to see the madhatter jump in front of me any minute!

The decor is totally exceptional, with a black and white dammier floor and a giant teapot floating above the tables. It is really worth the trip. You'll also be able to stock up on the new flavour for macaroons: Granny Smith!!!!

Check it out until March 18th.
