Oh Paris, how I love thee. This place is to die for.
If I were to come back, this would be the first bakery that I would go to. The pain au chocolat is amazing. Every bite was so fresh and delicious.
Confession - I have a mild obsession with these delicious chocolate croissants and having tried them at several locations throughout the city, this place takes the cake. It's close to the Louvre and other tourist spots so take a quick detour and check out this bakery.
The pastries here are amazing! And so many to choose from. We tried the almond chocolate croissant and walked back to get more. My favorite was the beignet or sugar donut. It was just SO good. We also got a chocolate brioche and raspberry roll. If you are ever visiting France you should give them a try.
Got a regular croissant, chocolate croissant, and a strawberry tart. All very tasty and worth getting again.
Also had a tomato, cheese, and pepper sandwich which hit the spot.
We enjoyed everything we ordered... a solid bakery option.
This is the fancy store compared to the one near the Louvre. There are two stores, one with the baked goods and another for more savory entree type items. The lemon meringue tartelette was the best pastry I tried in Paris. The boule bread was pretty good too. Good place to drop by for a snack! I wish they would open one in SF!
Between The Louvre, Opéra Garnier, and a couple of other stops that afternoon, I didn't have the time to stop by another patisserie on Friday, so I picked things up again on Saturday morning prior to checking out Notre-Dame Cathedral and Sainte-Chapelle with a visit to Jean-Noël Julien. Walking in just as the doors opened, I walked out with a warm Pain au Chocolat, Croissant, and a chocolate chip-studded bread that I don't know the name of. All three were fresh and delicious, with the Croissant and Pain au Chocolat exhibiting perfectly crisp exteriors that shattered upon mastication, giving way to airy layers of innards that proved to be exceptionally buttery yet light. The chocolate bread was quite tasty as well, as the still-warm loaf was loaded with semi-melted chocolate chips.
The baked goods were very good, but the service was a bit rude. When the woman behind the counter figured out that I don't speak French, she became noticeably cold and terse, and she gave the impression that she wanted to get rid of me. Oh well, I was bound to run into some locals like that, and it didn't really detract from the deliciousness of the croissants and bread.
Every single thing we got here was perfect. lunch salads were perfectly mixed, the sandwiches had the right amount of fillings, the patisseries were light, bright and luscious. Absolutely fabulous. We've been re-stocking with takeout every other day. Great for late night snacks.
I absolutely love the croissants here; an incredibly soft and buttery interior with a crisp and flaky exterior.
The pretty cakes in the window means you can spend an age deciding what delight you'll purchase, invariably changing your mind when you enter and realise there are even more cakes and of course a fantastic variety of freshly baked breads on sale.
Absolute heaven for the sweet toothed out there.
Great stop for pastries. It was right outside the hotel, which worked out well for me and my stomach.
After numerous trips to Paris this is still my favourite boulangerie in Paris. The bagettes are worth the wait lined up out the door and the chocalat-pistachcio pastries are to die for. A couple of blocks south of Georges Pompidou.
