Almond pastries are very good

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... read 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

We learned of this boulangerie during a food tour. Our guide bought several traditional baguettes for us to eat with different cheeses. She also showed us the difference between a baguette from Eric Kayser and one from a "factory bakery." You can see a slight pattern of holes on the bottom of the factory bread where the artisanal bread is... More

We came here for breakfast everyday. They have a proper selection of baked goods, pastries, breads, baguettes and baguette sandwiches. The prices were very good and the food was great and fresh. Service at the register was quick and friendly. Excellent for grabbing something to eat on the go.

Had a quick bite to eat here during a day walking around Paris. Tasty baguettes with a glass of wine. Good selection and reasonably priced.

While researching bread in Paris before our visit, Eric Kayser was at the top of several "best bread in Paris" lists. i was skeptical because it's a chain, but we tried it anyways. I'm glad we did, because after trying out some others, EK was superior! Their baguette's are perfect and since they have several locations, you're likely to pass... More

As an artisan boulangerie should have been better, but we always went back to Paul. Not that this was bad, but Paul was nearer to where we stayed, and didn't find much difference between the two anyway. So guess whichever boulangerie is nearer should be fine, they are all good.

We started every day of our trip in Paris with baguettes, croissants and madeleines for our breakfast. Excellent baguettes for just over a euro! We also like their sandwiches to go.

We have used Eric Kayser for breakfast sweet rolls, desserts and, most certainly, for the Fench bread for our picnics. Two locations on Rue Monge in the Latin Quarter, the bigger one closed on Tuesday and the smaller one on Mondays so you can alternate. This is a large chain but they can't be beat for fresh and French bread,... 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.
