5 Fabulous Patisseries in Paris

April 29, 2024

Ah, Paris! The illustrious City of Light. Meandering along the Seine, exchanging kisses at Saint Germain des Prés, clasping hands on the steps of Montmartre, and savoring world-renowned coffee alongside sumptuous pastries in exceptional patisseries. Many compelling reasons exist to embark on a journey to this magnificent city. However, we must confess the patisseries hold a special place in our hearts as one of our cherished destinations within Paris – and with valid justification. Their offerings are sumptuously rich, and after all, Paris is celebrated for its exquisite pastries and desserts!

We have selected five of the most gourmet Parisian patisseries you must visit during your stay in the city, especially if you can witness the matches at the French Open tennis tournament!


Nicolas Stohrer, pastry chef of Louis XV, opened his first shop in Paris in 1730. Parisians took to Stohrer’s goods like ducks to water since the shop is still going strong today. It is the oldest bakery in Paris.

A must-try: Baba Chantilly. It’s the mouth-watering cake of the house, invented by Nicolas Stohrer in the 18th century. It’s embellished with its volumes of Chantilly cream. You can buy it just for one or in larger sizes to share.

Du Pain et des Idées

If you can only visit one of these patisseries on this list, Du Pain et des Idées would be it. The bakery’s name translates to “bread and ideas,” and we have to say both are outstanding here. Many believe Du Pain et des Idées is the best bakery in the city. We have it on good authority chefs from other establishments line up here to get their breakfasts!

A must-try: Pistachio Chocolate Escargot. If sinking your teeth into the softest, warmest, most buttery and flaky piece of heaven sounds pretty good, you must try this dessert in the shape of a snail’s house, hence, the name.

Maison Pierre Hermé

Pastry Chef Pierre Hermé looks at everything as a source of inspiration for his creations. A team of pastry chefs from Maison Pierre Hermé set to work assembling the notes and textures imagined by Pierre Hermé. Tastings, adjustments, new tastings – everything about the pastries are perfected before they’re revealed.

A must-try: When in France you definitely have to sample French Macarons and Maison Pierre Hermé has some of the most delicious in a myriad of flavors like mango, pineapple, banana, crème brûlée, Madagascar vanilla and coffee.

Popelini is affectionately known as the cream puff house in Paris. There are now four locations in the city. All they sell are cream puffs, so if you’re a fan, this is definitely a stop you have to make on your Parisian travels.

A must-try: The cream puffs, of course! There are rows and rows of these colorful little petit choux pastries. We recommend the best-selling salted caramel! You won’t be able to get just one!

La Maison Pichard

We would be remiss if we didn’t include what we think is the best place in Paris to grab an unforgettable croissant. That would be La Maison Pichard. This family-run bakery has been going strong for decades and offers a wide selection of delicious goods, but the one thing that keeps many people coming back is, indeed, the croissants. In fact, in 2018, the owner and master of the business, Frédéric Pichard, won the best croissant award in Paris. The secret of Maison Pichard is the perfect harmony of milk, flour, and creamy pamplie butter, or butter of the chefs.

A must-try: Yes, the croissants, of course. The creamiest, softest, most buttery, delicate crescents in the world.
