Amazing patisserie

There are 2 parts to this patisserie - and the hardest thing is deciding whether to have sweet or savoury! We settled on 2 visits, one for sweet and one for savoury. I would go back to Paris, just to visit this patisserie - if you like food, don't miss it.

This is an amazing bakery. We were lucky enough to stay a week in paris ,about 5 minutes away from pain de sucre. Needless to say, this was almost a daily stop either in the morning or late in the afternoon. In the morning every thing is still warm , and there is a great variety . I can still... More

The pastries both look amazing, and taste amazing, often combining various unexpected flavors one wouldn't expect would go together. Place is also amazingly clean, and staff is reasonably pleasant. Their macarons, especially the fresh mint ones, beat those of Laduree hands up... Definitely a place to check out when in Paris. Note the shop is closed Tuesdays/Wednesdays.

Pain de sucre has earned a reputation far beyond the borders of Paris itself. In fact, I've read countless articles about Didier Mathray and Nathalie Robert's patisserie, and was really looking forward to sampling the sweets. As luck would have it, we were renting an apartment just around the corner from their *two* shops on Rue Rambuteau. Yes, they now... More

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.
