where: Yorkdale Shopping Centre
When I walk into my first ever Ladurée it’s like all of a sudden I am trasported into a Disney park theme ride. It’s all the things that make me happy: color, beautiful spaces, sweet treats and warm, welcoming atmosphere. I’ve never been curious about the shop before because of the crazy busy lineups. I’ve seen it on IG many times before and I knew it was cute as a button but it really takes a miracle to convince me to stand in a line up for hours at a time for anything, no exceptions, sorry but no. I may be a super consumer but I still have limited amount of time to spare. I may be quickly changing my tune to this one though because not only did we get this beautiful space all to ourselves to photograph but I also got to sample their food menu, and more specifically the raspberry french toast. It was another first for me as I have never had one before, but even with nothing to compare it to it was LIFE CHANGING! I mean, as someone who isn’t a general fan of dessert to begin with this was heaven in my mouth. It was the right amount of sweet and savory, soft and crispy and the best part, the sauce is made of real rasberries and is the most delicious and the perfect addition to the whole experience. At the end of the day if you asked me if it was worth waiting in line for that french toast I would be all for it… or you know go mid day during the week to skip the lines 😛 Do yourself a favor, visit the newest Toronto location asap and be transported to your new happy place! xoxo
