On a recent trip to Paris we stopped into Gerard Mulot based on an Andrew Zimmern TV segment that recently aired. While that segment touted the laurels of Mulot's croissants, we had our eyes on the dark chocolate tart as the eclairs. We bough both, sat inside the store at a stool and savored every bite. On the day we... More

I came here to buy macarons based on great reviews but was sadly disappointed. Although the macarons looked beautiful, both the flavour and the texture of the macarons were average and some flavours were just way too sweet! I felt like i needed a huge glass of water everytime i ate one.

Simply the best patisserie in the known universe. Amazing desserts of all kinds, and each one a delicate work of art in itself. A must-see on your trip to Paris, and nestled in the most historic section of Paris, surrounded by shops and restaurants you won't believe!

We decided to try something different from our usual tarte citron. We tried the creme brulee - which was expensive at €4.75 for a very small portion, but was addictive and delicious. The pastries at this shop are works of art. In additional to pastries, they sell macarons, chocolates, bread and prepared foods. The pastries are the best choice and... More

No visit to this delicious city is complete without a visit to Gerard Mulot. I'm yet to have a bad e presence here. In addition to the finest vanilla eclair on the planet (the candied ginger topping is a brilliant touch), everything from bread to apple tart, lemon tart, chocolate religieuse, his version of Black Forest cake and the divine...

We walked by here by accident and sorry we only discovered it at the end of a week. By far the best macarons and pastries in Paris.

This place is just wonderful to go look at! But if you want to indulge, the macaroons are amazing! Not cheap by any means, but a lovely treat to take back to someone special. The packaging is very pretty.

Walking past the windows alone, the pastries are works of art. I sought it out because I heard the macarons were wonderful - and glad I did. Bought some other treats and croissants - equally fabulous. I found this place to have more character and be very welcoming - especially in comparison to other macaron shops. I would definitly go...

This is hands-down the best patisserie in Paris. It has won many awards saying as much. I have used them for catering and for a wedding cake (amazing - pistachio crust, Bavarian cream, Raspberries, crème brûlée top) Their tartes salées are amazing, so are their sandwiches to go. Really not a place to eat-in, though there is a very small... More

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.
