We were in Paris for two weeks and had the most delicious time! After doing our own research and gathering lists of tasty recommendations, we wanted to share some of our favorite places that will be sure to please. Bon Appétit!
“Paulines” for their apple tarts. We got one to share and still have regrets not each getting our own. We ate it so quickly we only managed to take a photo half way in.
“Ladurée”, classic patisserie famous for their macarons since 1862. On an average day, they sell 15,000 macarons. Unfortunately, you will usually find long lines of tourists leading outside the door but it still makes it to the top of most Parisian’s macaron spots for their perfected taste, texture and filling to shell ratio.
“Breizh Cafe” is known for their buckwheat crepes. The cafe is closed Monday and Tuesday but fills up very quickly the rest of the week so reservations are highly reccomended. We were already full by the time we could get a table so we tried to get dessert crepes but the waiter insisted we had to order the savory crepe as the main meal before we could order dessert. We found that annoying but were pretty desperate to eat here so we each got a plain buckwheat crepe with salted butter and the other with smoked butter, simple and delicious! We didn’t have any room left for dessert but we plan to go back for it.
“Le Relais de l’Entrecote” – People begin lining up between 6-6:30 before the doors open at 7. It’s a pre-fixed menu with only 3 items, salad, pomme frites and of course, entrecôte. As soon as you sit down, all you’re asked is how you want your steak cooked. Then you sit back and go with the flow.
“Christian Vabret” is a patisserie in Le Marais recommended to us by our free walking tour guide who lives in the area and stops there for a treat after every tour. Their delicious croissant won them the coveted title of a “Meilleur Ouvrier de France” but this particular pastrie was our favorite!
“La Patisserie des Rēves” is not your traditional neighborhood patisserie but worth mentioning for its modern edge. Pastries are showcased in the center under glass bulbs and once you have decided, your order is assembled in the back and handed to you for take out.
