My husband and I first discovered this place 11 years ago, and we have been back whenever we go back to Paris. In 11 years, we have been there three times. It is always great and always packed. The cakes and macarons we have gotten there have all been excellent.

Been going there for years now. In my opinion his macarons are far better than Pierre Hermé or Ladurée. The pastries are delicious too. Never tried the chocolates but heard good reviews.

We did a taste test among Gerard Mulot, La Duree and Pierre Herme, and Gerard Mulot won! The caramel with sea salt the best! Also took out warm Quiche Lorraine and Quiche with duck and spinach to eat in nearby Jardins du Luxenbourg....a perfect lunch. All pastries and chocolates look amazing....our 2nd visit here and will return every time in... More

We went in for the macaroons and came out with the tastiest: salads, eclairs, coffee, croissants, quiche and expanded waist lines.After walking it off we were tempted to go back again so we can walk it off again.Don't know what you're doing in Paris but this is an absolute must.Good for breakfast too.

I had been told by the owners of the apartment we are renting what an extraordinary shop this is so this past Sunday I picked up croissants, pain au chocolat and a pain brioche for my family. Alas, when I got home, I discovered the pain au chocolat (although paid for in full) were missing. Worse: all the croissants were... More

If you go to Paris you MUST try the Macaroons. Everyone says go to Laduree' however Laduree's Macaroons taste just like the Macaroons you can get in the states. Nothing special. However, if you want to try a REAL Parisian Macaroon go straight to Gerard Mulot and definitely try the caramel ones!

We popped into this marvellous shop in order to pick up some consumables for the day ahead - faced as we were with a long day of walking the streets of Paris. What a truly breathtaking experience this was. The patisserie alone, is a feast for the senses, but the savoury and bread sections of the shop - heaven! We... More

Best food we had in Paris! Went for breakfast, and OMG, the quiche was out if this world as was everything we are there! My husband wanted to eat a whole big fruit tart himself! Amazing and a must go. But beware only room for 4 people to eat at a little bar. Mostly take out! Worth every minute! Go,... More

A veritable cornucopia of baked delights! It would take too long to list all of the wonderful, mouth-watering treats that can be found in this shop. Everything from the basic baguette to the grandest of cakes. The colorful and absolutely delicious macarons are my favorite. The flavors are brilliant and the packaging is top-notch. I found the staff to be... More

A trip to a luxurious patisserie should be a delightful marvel. Highly recommended by my Parisian expert friend -- we've tried all the macarons at Pierre Herme and Laduree so went with high expectations. Encountered horribly rude staff -- on two separate trips we tried numerous pastries, about ten in all, spending a total of more than 100 euros including... More
