Delicious. Everything we had here (especially the lemon-lime tart!) was amazing. Also visit the boulangerie-branch next door!

I was referred by my friend who has a pastry shop in Brussels to stop here for chocolates. Decided instead to have the Marshmallows. These Artisan marshmallows are not for S'Mores - would be just a waste. Definitely an experience worth trying.

I happened in there late on the Friday before Easter. The shop was busy but service was cordial and prompt. I bought a number of reasonably priced items as gifts. The chocolate and nut were delicious. The neighborhood is lively and perfect for strolling.

Stop here for some patisserie after it being recommended by a family member. The patisserie were delicious and with very distinct and delicate flavours. The price was reasonable considering how nice the patisserie was. The Macarons were equally as good if not better, and by far the nicest I have had (and I have had a lot!) The marshmallows are...

Visited while on a weekend break last year. Cakes and other goods are dazzling to look at but were not the best we had during our stay in Paris. They werev still good though and I would eat more if I could.

Looks gorgeous and all but just fails to deliver the goods whatsoever. Really average- and we bought a stack of things from a chocolate nut crunch (woeful choc), appetisers (tasted stale) and strawberry tarts (ordinary). Luckily there are dozens of good patisseries in Paris- this is NOT one of them. A real shame.

We tried lots of different macarons during our week in Paris but the first ones we bought were from Pain de Sucre and we never found ones better. The texture of their macarons has substance and a nice chewiness. Ones from other patissierres seem to just dissolve in the mouth. My favorite was the caramel one. One of my best... More

Pain de Sucre is one of the best pastry shops in Paris. There are signature cakes like the extraordinary Baobab, the best baba au rhum I've ever had in my life. There are temporary creations like this orange eclair which was fantastic. The guimauves on the window are just marvelous. The macarons also rock, but I prefer Pierre Hermé's though.... More

Could easily a day and a fortune there to try as much as I'd like to. First head to the bakery get a croissant and an anchovy pastry (yum) then go to the patisserie next door for your sweet tooth satisfaction. Big shame they don't serve coffees...
