"Stop dieting, relearn how to eat"
And because that extra-fancy macaron in the second one looked so delicious, of course we had to go to Hugo & Victor in St. Germain and get some of our own:
I really like Hugo & Victor...it's about the same price as Laduree and just as fancy, but a the pastries and the decor are a little bit more modern, where I would classify Laduree as more frilly (not a bad thing).
Definitely worth a visit! Especially for the cassis macarons.
