Paris it’s your turn! The most romantic city in the world welcomes and closes the time of the Fashion Weeks. And what better than a French croissant to start a day of fashion shows on a good note? If you would like to try the best ones Paris has to offer, follow our suggestion and drop by one of the 5 patisseries that you’ll find here below, bon appétit! 🙂

Maison Kayser (8 rue Monge – but there are many of them all over town: found the closest to you!). Just by looking at it from the outside, you would never imagine that this small bakery would hide a delight for the palate: their butter croissant is delicious and huge, and even the salty one is really high level stuff. There is a plus: reasonable prices, if compared to average Parisian standards.

Pierre Hermé (72 rue Bonaparte – and there are other 15 around the city!). One of the best Paris bakeries, known for its macarons even abroad. It is extremely crowded in the mornings and you might wait a while to get your croissant…but trust us, it will be worth it! You should absolutely try the Ispahan, stuffed with litchi, roses and raspberries.

Sébastien Gaudard (22 rue des Martyrs o 1, rue des Pyramides). Imagine a classic French movie in which the main character is rushing and suddenly she is drawn to the window, enters a patisserie and orders a croissant fresh out the oven. That’s exactly how it is! It’s impossible to resist the delicacies in the window and the 1950’s atmosphere of this shop. P.S. don’t just stick to the classic croissant, all the other pastries are superb.

Du Pain et des Idées (34 rue Yves Toudic). The name says it all. Bread and ideas is exactly what this boulangerie will offer you, modernity in the creation of croissants and tradition in the selection of the materials used. the variety of pastries and sweets it’s nearly infinite but their croissant is what makes the difference. Pick your favorite flavour (we suggest you try the apple one) and enjoy it on the bench right outside the shop.

Maison Grégoire (69 rue Monge). Probably less known than the other but it surely offers the best croissants in the area. The space is small and with just a few seats but it is the wide selection of croissants that will impress you as you enter. We suggest chocolate and almonds, you’ll love it so much that you will order another one right away!
