You must definitely pay a visit to this shop. If you are in Paris, make the effort to go by. Appetizers, sandwiches, breads and pasteries are out of this world.

Gerard mulot : the name has its fame. Though fame is sometimes overrated. And unfortunately it is. Expensive, the sweets are too sweet and the rest is too salted. The prices should let you expect something amazing which is definitely not, including a high level of service. The waitresses were complaining about their apparently superior, being vulgar, treating customers as... More

I have stopped here occasionally on my annual trips to Paris and have enjoyed most of the pastries. The macarons, however, do not appeal to me. The flavors seem off and the texture is not quite right. My favorite macarons are those sold by Carette at Place des Vosges and Place du Trocadero. My husband and I last visited Gerard... More

One of the Parisian experiences you can´t miss. Try all flavors, all maccaroons, and the marshmellows too!

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!
