Known for Savory tastes!

Homemade marshmallows which were awesome! The husband-wife team have two shops just a few doors down from each other and they both focus on savory flavors in their creations. It was really good

When wandering the streets of Paris, it can be hard to decide which gorgeous patisserie to stop in for a treat. For this reason, my husband and I only selected two eclairs from Pain du Sucre, marvelling at the beauty of each little pastry. We got the mocha and lemon raspberry flavours and saved them to eat over a cup... More

This place is a tourist trap where you will pay a huge premium. Prices are ridiculous. Explore the area and you will treat yourself with typical traditional French pastries at a reasonable price. Service is not included in the price and is awful.

Our apartment was just around the corner from Pain de Sucre along with a couple of other boulangerie. The sweet and savouries looked amazing but didn't quite deliver for me on taste. Boulangerie Hure is just down the road and the warm baguette and croissant in the morning were better. If you are prepared to take a 10 minute walk... More

This patisserie has it all. Their 'pain de sel' exudes spirit and their buckwheat dough with foie gras is an irresistible specimen. Don't miss the 'pirouette pomme', a caramelised apple tart with rosemary and almond, pistachio and lime cream - a dazzling combo which has our taste buds rocking. All the scents of the scrubland find their way into your... More

We only got a take away savoury pastry but it was very good. The selection of pastries, sandwiches and desserts was great and very reasonably priced.

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

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
