Hands down the best single bite I had in Paris was of a macaron from Pierre Herme. The ones I tried had bergamot and maybe rose and were simply magical. For 2 Euro ( the same price per macaron) you can eat some very middling macaron at other bakeries but not at Pierre Herme. I actually visited... read more

While I admit that Pierre Herme macarons are very original, colourful, have a thicker filling and they love to experiment with different flavour combinations, it just doesn't compare with that satisfying "crunch" and chewiness that comes with classic macarons from La Duree. Herme macarons are more creamy and the crust is not as crunchy, which gives off the impression that... More

I really wanted to try the experimental tastes of Pierre's macaroons. And they were good. Still, I am definitely team Laduree ;-)

We've tried a lot of macaroons in Paris & Pierre herme surpasses all of them! If you're a macaroon fan, don't miss these - I particularly liked the mandarin & matcha ones. There were absolutely fresh and just a delight! The ispahan croissant has a delightful rose-scented almond paste inside and is glazed with rose icing and crunchy freeze-dried raspberries.... More

Someone recommended Pierre Herme as a place to get macaroons, and boy we weren't disappointed. We ordered a box of 12 so we could try different flavors. Seriously, everything in this shop looked amazing. Everything from the look of the desserts to the packaging was perfection. Its like boutique dessert shopping. The macaroons were incredible, it was everything I could... More

In the world of pastry, the name Pierre Herme is synonymous with all words meaning Godly perfection. For it is to this standard that the man has not strayed from over the course of his dominance. Though the store may not be as fancy as Cafe Pouchkine or Laduree, the beauty is in his well thought out range of products... More

The name Pierre Hermé says it all. One of the best pastry chefs in the world. Visiting the store is almost like entering a museem. Everything looks like true art and the flavours are event better than the looks. It's a small store where you buy and take to eat at home or one of the amazing Paris gardens.

As the title says, you can't afford missing this, as they are far most the best macarons in the city. The texture is divine and they have vast choice of creatively combined flavors.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
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.
