We stopped at the Eric Kayser near the Louvre every morning before heading out for the day. Pain au chocolate is excellent. Coffee was really good (and more French than the Starbucks next door). We also stopped a few other times and grabbed sandwiches to take back to our apartment or a pastry. All very good. Service was great too.... More

We were going on as river cruise and decided to take some food with us since it would be several hours long and no food on board. We bought sandwiches and cookies to take along as well as beverages. Priced were good and the food delicious. It's around the corner from the Seine where you catch the barges for river... More

Friendly staff and AMAZING baguettes. We bought a fresh one each morning and they were wonderful. We ate them at Jardin du Luxembourg, which is 15 minutes by foot from the bakery. A great way to start the day. We also highly recommend the Viennois chocolat blanc and crossaints. Really great food for a reasonable price. Don't miss out!

We visited the shop at Rue Danielle Casenova a few times over our visit. Whilst not cheap, the food was good (we tried the sandwiches, quiches, salads, and cakes)... good options when we wanted something light and healthier. The bread was very good. More variety of food than Paul. No wonder they have been expanding overseas!

I love this place! Everything about it it's amazing! The sandwiches, the desserts, everything! And the staff is always so nice!! Get the 3 cheese sandwich and the caramel creme brule, can't go wrong. If you're at the Louvre you can grab lunch here, it's very close. You won't regret it!

I am still drooling thinking about the deliciousness which is this cafe. I saw a recommendation for it when googling cafes nearby in St. Germain and was not disappointed to say the least! The almond croissant and coffee was phenomenal, filling and affordable. During out week long stay in Paris, we also saw an interview on television about the man... More

I could see why this boulangerie is everywhere is Paris. Every item we got tasted great! The warm and fresh baguette with butter was so enjoyable that two of us can finish it at a go. Be sure to try it. Of course the croissant, madeleines, etc, are great too.

We wanted a coffee and pastry mid-afternoon and discovered this lovely bakery. Although we enjoyed the food all of the drinks were a disappointment, the hot chocolate and coffee were cold and we had to ask them to heat it up (it wasn't hot on the second attempt either). The Latte was all froth and hardly any coffee. Therefore I... More

One of the great delights of being in France is indulging in the delicious and beautiful pastries, which, fortunately, are walked off by the miles of sightseeing! We were in a hurry to get going each morning and were fortunate in finding a wonderful boulangerie/patisserie at 8 Rue Monge, only a couple of blocks from our hotel, where we started... More

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.
