I found this lovely shop in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighborhood, and noticed the number of locals lining up to get their bread and pastries. I got a box of beautiful, colorful macarons, and while relaxing in front of the effiel tower, I decided to try one. Fantastic! The best macarons I've ever had. I so prefer Gérard Mulot macarons over the... More

This was located much too close to our hotel. We couldn't resist visiting on almost a daily visit. Each and every one of the pastries, baguette and sweet rolls we tried were divine. Since we were in Paris over the New Years, we also had to try their traditional French pastry created in honour of the epiphany---Galette des Rois. If... More

My family and I stopped at Gerard Mulot during our recent trip to Paris. This is a must-see if you are in the area. The pastries and other food are beautifully displayed. Our kids got some of the pastries and raved about them. I will definitely come to this shop when visiting Paris in the future. It is a small... More

It's our 4th time staying in this area and we have been to a lot of the pastry shops in the area. I found this shop by accident this trip and I'm so glad I did. I grabbed Madeleines, other cookies and chocolate croissants three different mornings for my family here and everybody was absolutely delighted! My only negative is... More

The hotel where we stay is less than a block away from this wonderful bakery - which is a delight for the senses. Everything looks, smells and tastes wonderfully divine. Our favorite is the tarte citron, which is a lemon tarte in a sweet pie crust. We also like the orange tarte and the apple tarte tatin. Their tartes and... More

breakfast lunch or dinner you could just spend all of your time in Paris in here. Too much is made of the macaron. That is not the reason I go here nor anyone I know. We go here to get high quality food to make a meal from. And desserts of course. Today we had a half avocado stuffed with... More

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

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
