Skip the hotel breakfast and go here. Casual with the excellent coffee and croissant. I also stopped by for a ham sandwich on baguette to go. This is a busy place. Go early or at off hours.

Loved the croissants- sought out this place because I wanted to find the best croissants in Paris even tho I only had a couple of days and it was worth it! The eclaires were amazing too and the baguette- I felt very French :-)

My husband and I did a side-by-side taste comparison of tradie baguettes between Eric Kayser and La Parisienne. Both tradies were purchased at 7am, so they were super-fresh and hot from the oven. The La Parisienne tradie had a slightly more salty taste and a thicker crust, but the Kayser crust was crunchier. It's all about personal preference, but I'll... More

Kayser is probably among the best bakeries in Paris. The items I personally tried were superb. The butter croissants are so perfect and flaky, and the Gallette du roi is amazing as well. Anyone who happens to be nearby should definitely come here for great pastries.

So I really only had a plain croissant here. It was so good and taught me what a real croissant should taste and feel like! The beautiful display of pastries was so incredible. Wish I could have tried all of them.

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

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.
