We had lunch here quite by accident and knew it was probably on the expensive side but with such a view of Madeleine church and the passing Paris street parade. We had a wonderful lunch with excellent service from the waiters. We ate on the terrace and lingered over a long lunch. The truffle summer risotto was delicious and my... More

We rather enjoy visiting this shop as we drop in on the Madeleine area. The first time we came here they were giving out samples of strawberries from Nice, they were the best strawberries we ever had. Its a glorified luxury food store with some fresh produce, meats, chocolate, biscuits, bakery and macaroons. There is a cafe, its expensive rather... More

The cakes were exceptionally good, as were the breads and famous chocolates. No, the service wasn't great, and the prices were a little steep, but the food is just so good! Photos here - http://ordinarygirlextraordinarydreamer.com/2014/04/21/eat-here-fauchon-paris-france/

We went to Fauchon especially to buy a box of macaroons. A box of 24 macaroons cost 48 euros and this was what we carried home. The macaroons were very good and now I know I should have bought more!

I am sure Fauchon's is over priced and snobby, but I always make a visit. We bought jams, cookies and chocolates for our relatives. I've bought wine there before that was wonderful. They have a restaurant, which I have not tried, but will in the future. The deli in a separate building is a delightful experience as well.

Love the macaroons, eclairs and champagne. Relaxing atmosphere....Parisienne ambience. Fauchon also serves sandwiches and other quick takeaway lunches.

We stumpled upon this place quite acceidentaly as we had lost the way to Champs Elysee. We saw the Eclairs from behind the shop window and decided to call in for a takeaway and I have to say it was the best decision. It was the best Eclair I have ever tasted, dark choclate covered with gold coated nuts...Pure Patissier... More

Having been before this was one of the highlights of the trip and something we made sure we visited more than once. The first day we went we were unsure whether you could eat your coffee and cakes outside in the lovely seating area- no this is reserved for the high paying champagne drinkers - to eat coffee and cake...

We stopped outside here whilst waiting to change route on the L'open Tour bus and happened across it...and I'm so glad we did. We popped in to get takeaway cafe and croissant. And both were simply wonderful. A lovely young lady with blonde hair and glasses served me (Friday 14th March) and was very polite and helpful, translating my poor... More
