The place was absolutely overflowing with the aroma of chocolate and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, often giving us samples and explaining the ingredients. The chocolate covered strawberries were to die for but unfortunately don't have a shelf life for more than 2 days, too short to bring back home :( the entire experience was wonderful though and...

I've been heading here for years to buy chocolate treats for the folks back home (and a few for myself, of course). I decided on this small shop as my go-to place after tasting offerings at about 20 chocolatiers. Not only is the chocolate here rich and creamy with delectable fillings, but the staff strives to please. On my most... More

We visited Jean Charles Rochoux on March 1st. While this place is pretty pricey (we paid almost 5 euros for 4 very small pieces of chocolate), it was by far the best chocolate we have ever had. It was so creamy and just melted in your mouth. There were also a lot of cool chocolate carvings in the store and... More

I read about their homemade hazelnut chocolate spread online and decided to try it. It's absolutely amazing and worth every Euro! You can buy different flavors in jars to bring back home. The spread in the jars have a short shelf life (~2 months) but I think you'll finish them way before that time!

I spent far too much money on sweets and treats during my time in Paris but this place deserved my money. The array of delicious treats is meant to tempt you and believe me I was tempted. The man, I believe he was the actual owner was hilarious. Very welcoming, and very proud of his shop. The packaging alone is... More

The owner was there serving us and he was very friendly and helpful. He made great recommendations, including the delicious truffles and their hazelnut spread, and he even autographed the bags! The chocolate art that were on the shelves were also very intricate and rich in details, which is particularly surprising given these are designed to be eaten. Definitely worth... More

This is our second trip to Paris, and on both we've dedicated a day to a 'chocolate walk', hitting at least 7 'high end' chocolate shops (self proclaimed chocolate snobs that we are!). Jean Charles Rochoux is our new favorite - the chocolates are supreme, the service excellent, the shop a delight to visit. We'll definitely be back and recommend... More

Trust me, the chocolate here is the best I have ever eaten. And the service I experienced was excellent! A little pricey, but hey, I would rather pay a little more than waste my calories on junk. You only live once; eat dessert first!

Это место просто рай для любителей шоколада. Обязательно попробуйте трюфели, они здесь просто бесподобные. Заходим в этот магазин каждый раз, когда бываем в Париже. This place is truly Paradise for chocolate lovers. Be sure to try the truffles, they are incredible. We go to this shop every time when we visit Paris.

Been hoarding my chocolate coffee bar (http://www.charles-chocolatier.fr/tablette-cafe-100g/) which I have been holding in my Eurocave for some time. Sure, get some truffles, I guess, but if you want major food love, get the dark chocolate coffee bar. I'm just ate my last square, like 30 minutes ago and need to schedule another trip for this - it is that bomb.... 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.
