Why we love this place

Paris is hosting the World Exposition and the heart of Parisian life during the Belle Epoque beats at the nearby Madeleine. Women took part in this teeming social and intellectual life. Jeanne Souchard, Ernest Ladurée’s wife, merged coffee and pastries to invent tea room to encourage the development of women meeting on their own. Its management was handed down from mother to daughter.
