Choux à la crème at Popelini (2.4€) - Popelini opened in 2011, and it took its name after the Popelini the Italian pastry chef who worked for the queen Catherine de Medicis and invented the choux pastry. Rich with flavor and made with handcrafted ingredients. It changed my life forever!
Chocolate Brioche at Aux Merveilleux de Fred (3.6€) - When you enter the Aux Merveilleux de Fred you instantly know that you are at the right place. The smell is just fantastic. These giant brioches are so fluffy and delicious that I wish they start making pillows like this soon.
Croissant & Pain au chocolat at La Maison d’Isabelle (1€ and 1.2€) - La Maison d’Isabelle is the winner of Best Croissant in Paris 2018, and there is a reason for that. The best croissant and pain au chocolate I ever had! Just listen to that crunch!
Mille-feuille at Carl Marletti (7€) - Carl Marletti was a long walk from my Airbnb but well worth it. You tell just from peeking through the window that these people take their desserts seriously. The specialty is the Vanilla Mille-feuille (‘thousand-leaf’), and it was spectacular.
Chocolate-Pistachio Escargot at Du Pain et Des Idées (3.6€) - is a spiral pastry often eaten for breakfast in France. Its name translates as the snail. It is a member of the pâtisserie viennoiserie family of baked foods. The bakery is run by a passionate baker, Christophe Vasseur who went from fashion industry sales executive to THE Baker. The bakery is famous not only for its excellent bread and pastries but for its exquisite interior from 1889 as well.
Paris-Brest at Jacques genin (12€) - This was one of the most expensive desserts I tried in Paris, but it was also one of the best Paris-Brest’s I ever tried. There are no desserts on display. You can order from the menu, and they will be freshly-prepared for you on order. Excellent.
Eclairs at L’Eclair de Genie (5.9€) - You can’t visit Paris and not try Eclairs. One of the best places in Paris to get your eclairs is L’Eclair de Genie or ‘Genius eclair’. They are opened since 2012 and have now 4 shops around central Paris.
Macarons at Ladurée (2.1€) - And last but not least you need to try some macarons. One of the best places to try macaron Is Ladurée. Ladurée is the world’s best-known premier seller of macarons. They have a 157-year history and sell over 15000 macarons every day.
