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.
