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

Shop is very impressive but the breakfast we had was terrible order was incorrect and the croissants and pain au chocolat must have been days old and served without any kind of jam or preseve ,much better to be had over the road at cafe Madeleine

Waiters were rude, one told us they're closing in an hour but we can come in, after sitting another waiter came and told us that the kitchen is closed, and that they're closing in 15 mins! Not to mention the cold food area with a pig's leg at the entrance. I found it disgusting. Laduree's staff, atmosphere and macaroons are... More

This was recommended by a friend to visit for some yum treats. We ended up eating a snack at the outdoor cafe: Hot chocolate delist, thick 2 cakes which were little art works Also bought - madeleines, lavender honey, chocolate, biscuits to bring back to oz. Service was slow but I didn't care as I was looking at all the... More

I highly recommend Fauchon's packaged and fresh products available in their store, but you may want to skip their outdoor café. One afternoon, after shopping, we thought it would be fun to sit outside under the pink umbrellas and have a glass of champagne. We waited in line for a long time to be seated. We could see that several... More

After having breakfast at Le Paris London bistro down the street we had to stop by Fauchon. What would a trip to Paris be without going to Fauchon and getting some chocolates! This place is amazing; the chocolates, the pastries and the foie gras to go. A little expensive but worth it. A must try when in Paris.

We had lunch here yesterday. The plat du jour with amuse bouche and glass of wine is 26 euro which is quite reasonable. We had veal with mushroom sauce and mashed potatoes and it was delectable. The pink interior makes for an interesting experience. Downstairs is a wonderful range of gourmet products. We loved it.

A colleague of mine mentioned this place when he heard that we were going to Paris. The location is central, the displays impressive and the quality of food excellent. It might be a little overpriced but well worth trying. I would recommend it to anybody interested in tasting the Parisian food.

This pink paradise is like a museum and it is filled with delectable delicious delicacies. I tried the almond macaron--c'est magnifique. You must make a stop at this place when in Paris.

I went on an adventure to purposely search for this shop. I was casually browsing the beautiful displays and the employees were very eager to assist me. This is a very popular place so I was prepared to feel like a number because that's how it is most times when popular, busy shops have to cater to a mass number... More
