We were walking in the Marais area and passed by this store. We tried their ispahan last time we were in Paris and loved it. So we decided to go in and get some treats.
Macarons, went for the macarons right away. Picked a box of 7 with our own selected flavours. I forgot exactly what we picked because we did it randomly. But of the 7 flavours that we picked, they all tasted very good. Very sophisticated taste, great combinations and layers of flavours, not just your ordinary monotone of sweetness. We also bought a box of chocolate "Melissa". Milk chocolate with fleur de sel. Smooth tasteful chocolate with a hint of salt. So good! We were offered free samples of chocolate at the end and again, they were outstanding.
We went back on the very same day to get another box of chocolate for a friend. We ended getting some more chocolate for ourselves as well. The shop assistant once again offered us free samples and asked us if we would like to try any other kind chocolate. We tried tsuki and it was superb. The shop assistant also said that was her favourite!
Yes, this store is a little bit on the expensive side, but I think it's well worth it! We finished the macarons within minutes and wished we have bought more. Sooo goood!
Service was professional and welcoming. The shop assistant helped each customer efficiently but yet without rushing them.
Definitely a must eat in Paris!
