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.
