You are DEFINITELY going to the right place--there's no place to satisfy a sweet tooth like Paris! Here are some of my favorites:

L'Etoile d'Or - the woman who runs this has long grey braids and puts each sweet on a silver tray for you. It's worth the trip just to meet her. 

La Mere de la Famille - Although they have boutiques and kiosks all over the city, don't miss seeing their storefront at this location. Whether you have a sweet tooth or not this is one of THE classic buildings in Paris and something everyone should see.

Le Nôtre - great for macarons (and they offer culinary training, too) but not, in my opinion, as great as  Ladurée. Go to the one on  Place de la Madeleine for lunch and then get some macarons afterwards. 

Berthillon makes the best ice cream on the planet. 

Pierre Hermé Paris - This is Laduree's big rival--some say their macarons are better but personally I don't agree. Gorgeous stores, though.

1. Angélina is amazing. Coco Chanel was hanging out there quite a bit.

2. You cannot leave Paris without visiting one or both Carette  25 Place des Vosges (my fave), b) Carette 2 Place du Trocadéro.

3. Heavenly patisserie Dalloyau is at 2 Place Edmond-Rostrand.

4. For sweet snails (made of flour:) go to Du Pain et des Idées. Their baguette is what all parisians go for, too. (closed on weekends).

5. Gérard Mulot - obviously)

6. La Pâtisserie des Rêves is also amazing.

If you'll be in Paris at the end of October, do go to the International Chocolate show.  It's absolutely amazing.

Also, though I missed Passion Chocolat on my Parisian trips, this little shop became my mom's daily stop and she brought me back a box of some of the most mouth watering chocolates I've ever tried.  This is what chocolate dreams are made of.
