Это место просто рай для любителей шоколада. Обязательно попробуйте трюфели, они здесь просто бесподобные. Заходим в этот магазин каждый раз, когда бываем в Париже. This place is truly Paradise for chocolate lovers. Be sure to try the truffles, they are incredible. We go to this shop every time when we visit Paris.

Been hoarding my chocolate coffee bar (http://www.charles-chocolatier.fr/tablette-cafe-100g/) which I have been holding in my Eurocave for some time. Sure, get some truffles, I guess, but if you want major food love, get the dark chocolate coffee bar. I'm just ate my last square, like 30 minutes ago and need to schedule another trip for this - it is that bomb.... More

The tiny, square truffles in the silver box, with the little spear for eating, was a great gift for friends and family. These truffle bites came in several different size boxes, and were pricey, but I've never had such rich chocolate flavor concentrated in a small bite size. Well worth the price.

a tiny gem of a shop that carries the best chocolates, and the best hazelnut-chocolate spread, in Paris. The chocolate animal sculptures in the front window are spectacular. When I visited, the woman in the shop was dusting them with a special brush, with the care and attention of a surgeon. Combine this with a visit to Patisserie Secco across... More

This tiny shop is probably one of my favorite "chocolaterie" in Paris. The staff is really nice and very helpful. I would highly recommend the truffles. French artisanat at its best, very delicate and traditional.

We visited the shop with cousins who had bought from it on a previous visit to Paris. It is amazing with an extensive range of first class chocolates. The whole display is a delight with figures ranging from tiny animals for a few Euros to enormous sculptures. The truffles, which we bought, are "to die for". Not cheap but excellent... More

Splurged on a box of tiny truffles... They are some of the best I've had! I have been reading about all the wonderful chocolates in this area of Paris, and was not disappointed. They also have some beautiful chocolate sculptures. Crazy expensive prices, but if you have the cash, this is worth the splurge.

The truffles are each small pieces of heaven. My wife and found this place by accident as we were killing time walking about. We have tried many chocolate places in London, Paris, Brussels and New York and like these truffles the best. The staff are friendly and happy to speak English. There are beautiful little chocolate carvings and molded pieces... More

Reluctantly went on a chocolate tour with my wife. Second stop was at Jean Charles Rochoux chocolate shop. Must have gone back three or four times and spent $$$ each time. Warm, friendly people (between my tourist French and their English) in the shop and on one trip Rochoux came out and spoke to my son and I for several... More

This left-bank chocolate shop sells a tool to scrape the perfect chocolate curl. How cool is that? Chocolates are also VERY high quality.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
