      Pacific Centre’s iconic glass rotunda has a new resident, and it comes in the form of Parisian sweet treats.

      French luxury bakery Ladurée has a new pop-up underneath the shopping centre’s dome-shaped roof, bringing its fan-favourite macarons, pastries, and cakes to yet another location in the downtown core.

      The dessert brand’s signature mint-green carriage will carry all of its baked goods, as well as chocolates, biscuits, and other pastel-hued gifts.

      “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,” said Olesya Krakhmalyova, Ladurée Canada’s licensee, in a press statement.  

      Although the pop-up won’t be as accommodating as its tea salon counterparts, a couple of tables and chairs will be onsite for guests who want somewhere to enjoy their treats.

      Ladurée opened its first Canadian location on Robson Street in 2016, followed by a second opening inside Holt Renfrew in 2017. It first opened in Paris in 1862, and has expanded to many international locations including New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Toronto, and London.

      In addition to boxed sets of macarons, fresh pastries are also available.
