Best ever salmon baguette

I had a mushroom soup and it was okay but when I tried salmon baguette, I have to say it was one of the best if not the best ever. I cannot wait to go back. I went to the one in Opera.

This bakery is world-famous, which ironically detracts from its charm. Since you can visit Kayser at their countless branches throughout Europe, there's no need to come while in Paris unless you're already in the area. However, their products are great and the value is even better. Kayser is best known for the baguettes, which have pointy ends instead of round... More

My husband and I were only in Paris for 3 days & nights and we went to Eric Kayser every one of those days - and one day we actually went twice! The chocolate almond croissants are to die for - I had one for breakfast every morning. The baguettes are fabulous as well and I also really enjoyed the... More

Delicious breads, pastries and desserts. Good atmosphere and lots of seating. Staff at the coffee bar speak English, which is great. Staff at the bread counter speak only French and it is always a fun interaction to complete my order:)

We rent a hotel room very closed to Eric Kayser's shop on rue du bac, Paris because we fresh bakery every morning. His bread is world class and wonderful, flaky and soft. Well designed interior and comfortable shopping and eating area. However bread on the wall as decoration began having mould on it, the staff are not servicing attitude as... More

Surprisingly, it was the sandwiches for lunch rather than the pastries at breakfast that get the four star rating. As big fans of Maison Kayser in the City, we were excited to see Eric Kayser so close to our Place Vendome hotel, so we came here early on our stay for breakfast one morning. The café au lait was good,... More

We stopped at this bakery several times during our time in Paris. Everything we ordered, usually takeaway, were always freshly made and delicious – even after we ate them a day or two later. We usually picked up baguettes, or grabbed their sandwiches and salads for a quick meal. Prices are reasonable and food are high quality, so this boulangerie... More

The pastries were rich, tasty and more-ish. But while the Croissant and Brioche should have been the favourites, they were served a little too cold for my liking. This means it was not as fluffy or airy as they could have been. For that reason alone, my favourite was the Raisin & Vanilla Custard Pastry.

We visited Eric Kayser on a cold November day after a visit to the Rodin Museum (a 15 minute walk away.) Stepping into the bakery we didn't know where to look first. The bakery was crowded and we let several people go ahead of us so we could take our time - we wanted to try everything! We settled on... More

I would consider this a more budget type Paul's. There are no frills, just fresh, delicious food at nice prices.

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.
