One of the forefathers of Parisian patisseries, Chef Larger is a mastermind and pioneer in his field, creating the most delectable French delicacies such as, pave de Monmartre aux amandes and baba au rum. His beautifully decorated bakery is three stories and is a chocolate lovers dream. Located in the chic Saint-Germain-des-Pres neighborhood, you will feel the epitome of Parisian sophistication as you stroll the cobblestone streets with a pastry in hand.
If the name of this establishment does not convince you to visit, I don’t know what will... La Patisserie des Rêves opened when pastry chef Philippe Conticini and founder of hotel collections Malisons des Rêves, Thierry Teyssier, collaborated to create an old fashioned pastry shop that reminded Parisians of their childhood. Whether or not you are with a junior, this patisseries will bring out the child in you with its fairy tale delicacies and whimsical decorations.
Karamel combines two classics, a patisserie and tea-parlor. This exemplary pairing is must try. Debuting last November of 2016, the establishment promises to be top notch as the founder, Nicolas Haelewyn, has already proven himself time and time again during his five years at Laduree. Originally from Normandy, this young chef is passionate about, as the name suggests, caramel and built Karamel on his own childhood’s dreams. Try sweets, cakes, patisseries or even chocolate, all with the key ingredient: caramel of course!
With a resume that includes such renowned patisseries as Pierre Hermé, Ladurée, Bristol, Plaza Athénée, it is no surprise that Chef Claire Damon’s own establishment, Des Gateaux et du Pain, does not disappoint. Her sweets provide an explosion of clean flavours with a refined touch only achievable through many years of experience. Located outside of the tourist route, enjoy a delicious breakfast of light afternoon snack at Des Gateaux et du Pain.
