This bakery was within a few minutes walk from our Paris hotel so it was the ideal place for us to get our breakfast each day- croissants, pain chocolats and pain aux raisins - delicious. I only wish there was a branch in our hometown as I could have really got used to having amazing pastries every day!

Try as many things as you can. They are all amazing. There is usually a line out the door but it is worth the few minute wait

Staying near to this fantastic boulangerie was very convenient, as a few trips were made to sample the tasty goods on offer (always seemed to be busy with a mixture of tourists and locals). The quiches, croissants, chocolate eclairs, macarons and baguettes were all equally full of flavour and highly recommended. It's reasonably priced and well-worth visiting.

I think that they have the best macaroons. I tried macaroons every where we went and they had by far my favorite. The only down side was that they didn't have a big variety. We also had breakfast there a lot and it was a great way to have a reasonably priced breakfast.

Went to the one near the opera. All croissants were top notch. Not our favorite in Paris but very good.

I bought tarte citron and chocolate mousse to bring home to our rented apartment. These were good quality pastries! I will go back for more. I went to the one in the 6th Arrondisment, about a block from Blvd. St. Germain

Everything in Eric Kayser is amazing--everything! Best madelines known to man, best mini financiers du pistache (pistachio mini muffins), I'm drooling just thinking back to our time there. Both times we've been to Paris, I think I stopped here once each day.

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
