My husband and I were lured in by the colorful macarons (my favorite) and the incredible chocolate sculptures. So delicious! To buy the macarons separately rather than the pre sorted boxes will save you some money. We bought a few of the Paris tin boxes and filled them with 21 macarons each and the total cost for box plus macarons... More

The stars were aligned when I accidentally saw Maaison Larnicol walking in Paris towards Gare de Lyon, I had been in a work meeting all day and had a sandwich for lunch and all I wanted was something sweet. Excellent. I gravitated towards the place and had a walk around, salivated over the caramels, chocolates, and other sweets but then... More

If you want to see some fantastic art with chocolate, taste exquisite kouignettes nature & caramels- go here! It's a quick walk from the St. Paul (I think?) stop on the Metro. It's the same line as Hotel De Ville. It is quite amazing to see what they are able to construct from chocolate. The kouighnettes are thick, heavy, syupy... More

We found this shop by accident as we returned from Sacre Couer and decided to take a look. The displays were very nice, especially the model of Notre Dame made entirely of chocolate ! In the end we purchased a few macaroons and some other items which were very nice !

This is the most stunning chocolate shop I've ever seen! The chocolate and variations taste are incredible as is the presentation. This is a definite must-see. The service is just as any French shop. Just make sure you say the magic words "Bon Jour Madame." Must see this one.

Good chocolat. Nothing exceptional but good. The service is very french. Snobnish, unwelcoming and do not expect a smile or guidance. Do not smile either or this will be consider as a sign of weakness by the guy behind the counter. ...

Wonderful quinettes (get the caramel before they run out), caramels, and macarons. So reasonably priced and delicious. My partner and I decided that the macarons are rivals for another very famous Parisian macaron producer! I bought lots of caramels to take home as they will make lovely gifts.

Affordable and very tasty chocolate shop. You buy by the gram and can get as little or as much as you want. I spent a week in Paris and found myself coming here for my afternoon treat three different days, which I'm borderline ashamed about but it was that good. Macaroons available too. Good place to get a gift.

Awesome Chocolate Store! Wonderful large displays of several assortments of chocolate! Visited this store after we visited the Basilique Dusacre-Coeur on our way to the Moulin Rouge. The hot chocolate is to die for! Stop by, you will not be disappointed!

Staying in Odeon / Saint-Michel

Neighborhood Profile
Odeon / Saint-Michel
As the bustling center of entertainment for the residents of the Rive Gauche, the activity at Odéon never stops. Boulevards are lined with traditional cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just next door and the prototypical terraced French brasserie is on every corner. The setting for this area is second to none; the Haussmann-style boulevards are contrasted by monumental architecture and overshadowed by the iconic Notre Dame, all within a moment’s walk from the Seine. This neighborhood's world-famous bookshops, cafés, and streets will not fail to impress you.
