This french "épicerie" is marvelous, a bit retro which makes it's charming, I can only speak for their Ice Cream. Not to many flavours but you only need one: Mint !!! To die for ! It's like you just picked your ice cream directly out from the garden

The windows of this wonderful sweets shop are impossible to pass by without entering. Words can not express how delicious and enticing everything looks. You feel like you've gone back into time where craftsmanship and artistry ruled the day. If you are anywhere near this sweet shop while in Paris you must visit. A true treasure of the city.

I wandered by this shop and decided I had to go in. There are so many beautiful creations in the windows, and going inside feels like being, well, a kid in a candy store. Everywhere you turn there's more beautiful food. I ended up selecting a bar of dark chocolate, a medium box of their specialties, and a box of... More

The chocolates in this shop were delicious and everything was beautifully presented. It is expensive, but very nice quality. Recommended are the praline chocolates - very rich praline centre with an exterior chocolate - exquisite. Unfortunately, we did not have the same experience as to the friendliness and level of service experience by other reviewers. We were the only 2... More

I made it a point to come to this store on my visit to Paris and I am glad I did. I was a little intimidated as I do not speak French, but the store keeper (and chocholatier?) was really kind and went around the store describing everything to me. He was really a nice man and went out of... More

I discovered this shop more than twenty years ago, and I came back last week with my daughter. It's still a magic place! You're always welcome with a smile and advice. You would like to buy everything, and you never disappointed. You cannot skip this place, adults and children will find a treasure of delight. Chocolate, sweets, etc... yummy

I found here sugared roses and violets. The chocolate is also good. And the atmosphere is so French, it is very pleasant to shop here.

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
