Best for bread and goodies

We have used Eric Kayser for breakfast sweet rolls, desserts and, most certainly, for the Fench bread for our picnics.

Delicious!!! We enjoyed amazing croissants and a brioche and a lemon meringue tart, all of which were fabulous, especially the croissant. The service could have been friendlier. There are two locations on this block. One is apparently a take out bakery, which we didn't see until we asked for our order to go at the first location. They could have... More

The baguettes are very delicious. Me and my father tried the tuna sandwich and aubergine one, which are amazing. They also provide testers for the tarts which I rarely find in Parisian bakeries. The tarts are yumm as well btw. Will definitely go back.

Tarts were lovely too. There are two shops in the Rue Monge, closed on different days. One has a small cafe attached serving breakfasts (2.55E for a coffee and croissant, see pic) and lunches. Or you can just choose a pastry (the almond croissants were fab!) and take it out to eat near Notre Dame. We also bought lovely fresh... More

Some of the most delicious bread and pastries I tasted in Paris. The bread was fresh and had the perfect consistency and I loved their desserts. On top of that the service was friendly and polite.

Well this was definitely a first for me. We met some friends here that recommended this place and it was fabulous. We each ordered a couple of different kinds of pastries to mix and match and try. Well they were all to die for and I would come back here again and again.

We had breakfast the first day we arrived here. The array of fresh breads and breakfast selection were simply wonderful. Almost everything was tasty. The juice and hot chocolate were so comforting on a cold morning. Simply wonderful.

Staying in Quartier Latin

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.
