Me and my family decided we would fully immerse ourselves into the stereotypical Paris tourists! After a morning of the Louvre and walking around we decided we were peckish! We were asking around for a great place to eat and some French people told us there was a McDonalds not to far by. Offended did not even cover it! To... More

After a week in Paris we were leaving for the airport and decided to stop to get lunch to bring on the plane with us. We each picked out a delicious, perfectly sized sandwich and a wonderful eclair. My sandwich was ham and Brie, my daughter picked out a mozzarella and tomato sandwich, and my husband had a turkey and... More

Love these sandwiches! Always fresh and delicious. Jambon-fromage is the best (and it comes with a little spread of butter.) You cannot go wrong here.

I am staying in the Latin District in an AirBnb and our hostess recommended Eric Kayser bakery. My son walked over in the morning and ordered chocolate croissants, Apple pastries, and an almond chocolate pastry to go. Everything in the store looked delicious and the prices were reasonable. We took them back to our place and had breakfast on our... More

Stopped by here for a quick breakfast a few days ago. Excellent croissant, Paine du Chocolate & cheese bread roll. You can see they are serious about their bread as the walls are decorated with framed artisan breads! We were there early & could see all the fancy fresh salads being delivered. Desserts looked amazing too but too early in... More

There are two locations on Rue Monge of this excellent well-known Paris bakery. One sells breads, croissants, sandwiches to go. The other had outdoor tables and serves great coffee and has the same items. First day stopped in one for a couple of sandwiches. Wow. Second morning my wife and I had our Petit Dejeuner. Freshest pastry around. Stop it.... More

Eric Kayser has a wide variety of bread and pastry. They are simply delicious. After the first bite, it became our daily stop and breakfast routine in Paris for the whole trip. Great services and good coffee. Highly recommended!

We went to Eric Kayser at least 3 times during our 5 days in Paris. It was right around the corner from our hotel and has wonderful options for a light breakfast and for lunch. We got a piece of sweet potato, ham, and Parmesan quiche that was stupendous. Don't let the fact that this is a "chain" scare you... More

Stepped in for a croissant en route to the metro and just fell in love with the noted boulangerie's offerings. The almond croissant and pain au chocolat are to die for....the coffee is excellent, the sandwiches are very good. For lunch, pick up a salad to go along with a sandwich and you will be well satisfied. Loved their range... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
