You can not resist to visit Paris and do not enter in one of the most prestigious pastries shop! We suggest you the following address located in Saint Germain area:
The first one Hugo & Victor, offer a new concept of pastry shop. Nicely and arranged vertically, all tasty pastries are presented in the 3 following form: pies, cakes and glasses. Furthermore they offer the possibility of an a la carte French-style brunch delivered to your door on Sunday: composed of delicious cakes, vanilla-flavored rice pudding, salted pies, fine teas, pastries and squeezed fruit juices. Gourmet, fresh and high-qualit… so Parisian!
Few steps away, you can enter in Michalak pastry shop. After working for Fauchon, Ladurée and Pierre Hermé, Christophe Michalak became the pastry chef of the famous Plaza Athénée until 2016. He opened a modern place, to achieve uninhibited and innovative pastry in his image where aficionados can find signature cake French pastry revisited by the Chef and proposed meter.
Our suggestion: the “Mille Feuilles”.
Then we suggest to turn on Rue Saint Sulpice to find the first shop of Monsieur Pierre Hermé,
the temple of sweet delights. We could compare it to the inventor of the Haute Couture in the field of the pastry. His pastries, macaroons, chocolates, waffles and other sweet treats are simply exquisite and incomparable to others. Our suggestion: all macarons !
Go back to rue Saint Sulpice towards Arnaud Larher boutiques. You will re discover the classics pastries, and his own chocolate and his revisited creations. You could also find a sumptuous nuts & chocolate spread, macarons and candies. How can you resist?
To finish the walk enter in L’éclair de Génie who reinvents one of the favorite delicacies of French. Lined up on the display, they shine. Shape, size, appearance are similar, but the colors really pop, change depending on flavor. The Chef has been elected in 2015 best pastry chef by the international Association Relais Desserts. Our suggestion: the “Salted caramel butter”.
