While walking down rue Rambuteau, we were attracted to the shop window of Pain de Sucre and decided to give their pastries a try. The guimauves (marshmallows) looked enticing, but we opted for a couple of their pastries and a bottle of blood-red juice. The pastries were heavenly. Our favorite was the pistachio-crumb-covered strawberry cream rectangle, but the dome with... More

This patisserie has the best marshmallows that you have ever eaten, the chocolate and coconut made me weak at the knees, all the other flavours are just magnificent as well, the owner was very freindly and helpful, we bought a few home as well, they traveled well, this is a don't miss place.

Don't miss this bakery. There are two shops side by side, one sweet and the other savory. They pasty shop has a terrific selection of pastries that are beautifully prepared. Everything I tried in the savory bakery was delicious, including the eggplant sandwich, the tomato and pesto tart and the foie gras tart.

IMPORTANT- they have two storefronts. One for sweet and one for savory. I walked into the savory place and almost left altogether thinking they didn't have any sweets. Walk down a few storefronts for sweets :-) Come here for unique, fancy, little dessert confections. 6€ or so. Delicious. IF you want the more basic sweets like eclairs or pain chocolate,... More

Tried the lemon tart, strawberry tart and rum baba. All excellent. The bakery is rather small but all their creations are beautifully presented and prices are very reasonable. Must try in Paris!

This wonderful bakery serves sweet and savory pastries in a rapidly expanding number of storefronts on the rue Rambuteau. Loved the lemon tart and the rosemary raspberry confection, and the rum-flavored baobob was an interesting change from the normal. The proprietor is patient with non-French speakers, even though there is often a crowd waiting to be served. Inventive sculpted chocolates... More

My friends and I came here about being recommend it by a local. It was one of the best croissants and pain au chocolats I have had. Really good. Perfect flakey pastry and great flavour. I also had a basil thing (almost like a scone?) and it was amazing. Really surprisingly good actually. I didn't expect it to be as... More

This cafe was located near my accommodation and was highly recommended. They have an excellent selection of savoury and sweet treats. They have three shops in a row! My favourites were the foie grass pie and the veal. The cakes were great too but nothing too mind blowing about them. I think the only downside of this amazing bakery is... More

If you are around Hotel de Ville treat yourself to the best bakery in Marais. During my stay in Paris, I went to this shop 3 times and each time I treated myself to not very cheap piece of heaven (6 to 7 euros). I tried the mango pineapple boat, Mille Feuille and the green apple dome (this was my... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
