Bakery Hopping

As a result of our very physically straining weekend last week,
JD and I decided to take this one a little easier, trading our life jackets for sugary treats.
I suppose the best way to describe what we did on Saturday is to call it 
"bakery hopping", you know, like bar hopping but with bakeries in place of bars.
We started with a trip uptown to Laduree, where we spent way too much
on twelve macarons. I've only ever had the non-cookie, gluten free
coconut version of a macaron, so I wasn't sure what to expect from those 
pretty, colorful confections. We sampled just about one of each flavor.
They truly are delicious, and the packaging is just so pretty, 
but I'm not sure I would do it again. $42 for twelve cookies seems a bit much.

Our next stop took us across the park to the Upper West Side
where we dropped in Alice's Tea Cup, Chapter I for a cup of tea
and a pumpkin scone, and cookie brownie to go.
From there we went to Le Pain Quotidien for lunch before
heading back downtown for the day.

Have you ever been to Laduree?
