A Parisian Escape under the Dome
Ladurée opens in Pacific Centre’s rotunda
Enjoy a slice of Paris at one of downtown Vancouver’s most iconic intersections as Ladurée Canada unveils its third location under Pacific Centre’s glass-domed rotunda. A pop-up version of its popular tea salons, customers, passersby, and visitors can experience a respite from the hustle and bustle with classic Ladurée pastel-coloured macarons, pastries, and cakes.
“The rotunda is in one of downtown Vancouver’s remaining open spaces, and we are thrilled to be able to offer people a place to experience our renowned sweets while they take a quick breather from the busy day,” says Olesya Krakhmalyova of Ladurée Canada. “It is truly one of my personal favourite locations downtown.”
Ladurée’s carriage, in Ladurée’s signature green, is nestled on a black and white checkered floor in the rotunda. Patrons will have a couple tables and chairs to sit and enjoy.
Currently, boxed sets of macarons are available for purchase, as well as chocolates, various other gifting options, and Ladurée’s house-made pastries and biscuits by Ladurée Canada’s executive chef Mickaël de Monte.
The new Ladurée Pacific Centre pop-up (at West Georgia St. and Howe St.) is open seven days a week at 10 a.m. Vancouver Ladurée Boutique and Tea Salons are located at 1141 Robson St., and inside Holt Renfrew at 737 Dunsmuir St. Pastry selection may vary depending on the location. Pre-orders welcome.
