While walking down rue Rambuteau, we were attracted to the shop window of Pain de Sucre and decided to give their pastries a try. The guimauves (marshmallows) looked enticing, but we opted for a couple of their pastries and a bottle of blood-red juice. The pastries were heavenly. Our favorite was the pistachio-crumb-covered strawberry cream rectangle, but the dome with the salted caramel center was delicious, too. The juice was flavorful and inventive, and I loved it, although my daughter did less so.

The pastries here are pricey, but no more so than LaDurée, and with a much shorter wait. Plus it's in a great location, within walking distance of the Centre Pompidou and the Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature. Spending a few extra euros on some amazing pastries is a decision I absolutely do not regret.

This patisserie has the best marshmallows that you have ever eaten, the chocolate and coconut made me weak at the knees, all the other flavours are just magnificent as well, the owner was very freindly and helpful, we bought a few home as well, they traveled well, this is a don't miss place.

Don't miss this bakery. There are two shops side by side, one sweet and the other savory. They pasty shop has a terrific selection of pastries that are beautifully prepared. Everything I tried in the savory bakery was delicious, including the eggplant sandwich, the tomato and pesto tart and the foie gras tart.

IMPORTANT- they have two storefronts. One for sweet and one for savory. I walked into the savory place and almost left altogether thinking they didn't have any sweets. Walk down a few storefronts for sweets :-)

Come here for unique, fancy, little dessert confections. 6€ or so. Delicious.

IF you want the more basic sweets like eclairs or pain chocolate, there is another place on the block.

Tried the lemon tart, strawberry tart and rum baba. All excellent. The bakery is rather small but all their creations are beautifully presented and prices are very reasonable. Must try in Paris!
