Just delicious

The macarons are the best I've ever eaten and I've eaten lots. I purchased a box of 12 to bring back as a gift but we scoffed them on the train home.

Passion fruit with a light chocolate filling. I've tasted a few and theses creations are my favorite. You only need one! This is the Monet of sugar!

If you're looking for a perfect example of what French macarons can be, this is the place to visit. We stopped by one afternoon and got a sample of various flavors to try. We liked the fact that they offer some flavors that are a little more unique than the traditional macrons. As a nice bonus, Saint-Sulpice is just around... More

So many people recommended Pierre Herme. The macarons are indeed just that much lighter/fluffier and sweeter than the rest. The selection is wonderful, and the shop and displays are stunning. We visited the store twice during our trip; once to test, and once to return for trip treats to bring home. Both times we received service with a smile and... More

Oh, the rivalry between the Ladurée and Pierre Hermé! I’d say Pierre Hermé. Depending on the time of day, there could be a long line, but macaroons are devine, pistachios – my favorite. The store is exquisitely rich and minimalist at the same time. Service is excellent, just makes your day more delicious and happier.

Excellent macarons. We tried the chocolate/passion fruit combination, which was excellent. It was like a party in my mouth! We tried a few other flavors, but the passion fruit/chocolate stood out by a landslide.

We walked a lot to get there. I was tired and wanted to skip this stop..but that would be one of the biggest mistakes I could do in Paris. I had macaroons few times from the same brand in London but they were not as good as these ones. We took the 12 pcs box (all tastes they had there)... More

This was my first introduction to macarons. My husband and I aren’t really big sweets or dessert lovers but these were awesome. We pick out about a dozen flavors and then we walked to a chapel courtyard nearby so we could sit down and just try one. We, in one sitting, at the whole box.

You cannot go to Paris without going to Pierre Herme! Either you go for a desert or macarons, it's a real delight. The flavours of the macaron are quite unique, beating by far Fauchon and La Durée, which are also good! Enjoy everybite! For those who love sweet and have a sweet tooth!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
