My wife and I visited the Jacques Genin store in Paris for morning tea. Like most upmarket chocolateries the interior is like a jewellry store, pleasant but a little intimidating. The staff initially looked a little unapproachable but were actually friendly and helpful. We decided to try a couple of the pastries as well as buy a small sample of... More

Excellent experience. Beautiful interior. Relaxed atmosphere. Calm and cool. Great service with a smile. Tea, chocotino, chocolates, caramels and basil and lemon tart all to die for. Will be back soon.

I went looking for mille feuille, but they ran out at 3pm on a Friday, so I settled for a take away citron tart. I had it the day after and even so I can safely say it was a very good citron tart. People were friendly and the chocs look good, I'll be back in a couple of weeks'... More

We went to this chocolaterie in the afternoon for a coffee and chocolate. The chocolates were absolutely amazing (and so was the coffee). Exactly what you would expect from a high-class French chocolatier. My only problem was that the atmosphere inside was overly posh and quite snobby. The attitude of the waitresses said something like "We've got VIPs visiting us,... More

I came across this on the internet as a place to visit. Its a quaint tea room in a not so fantastic area and space to sit is limited. However, the desert and chocolates were amazing!! there mille feuille was so crispy and sweet and their walnut tart was to die for. We also tried the cheesecake, which was a... More

Excellent environment, excellent sweets, just a sweets boutique! A place that respects when you pay a good amount of money for sweets. I would say it added so much to our experience. Very memorable hot chocolate too!

Tracked down this chocolate shop after reading such great reviews. We wanted to purchase some to take home so didn't eat in the cafe part. There were no free samples on offer when we were there and much attention seemed to be directed towards a small film crew who were looking to set up in the store. The lady who... More

Jacques Genin is well known and revered in the world of chocolate. His pastries are equally as impressive although he is better known as a chocolatier. Limited seating of about 10 tables. No reservations. Everything on offer is fabulous here. Genin's caramels, chocolates, fruit gelees, pastries and tea are wonderful. The hot chocolate is so rich and decadent, you'll need... More

And the caramels and the pates des fruit and the fancy chicolates. Expensive but worth every penny. Nice place for a pit stop as well.

We went to this chocolaterie expecting to buy a few caramels and chocolates. Instead we decided to sit down (we didn't know ahead of time this was possible) and order a couple of pastries. We had a mille feuille and a tarte au citron. What an extraordinary experience they both were. We have had many of each of these over... More
