Had read about this bakery for some time and wanted to try. On our last day on our recent trip, we headed over for breakfast. Just off a busy street near Notre Dame, the bakery offers the smell of fresh croissants coming from the small...over they have near the entrance. A selection of other baked goods such as chocolate crossiant, pain au raisin, and other types of pastries are also available. They also offer some finer items such as fruit tarts and small cakes. Besides the croissants we had a small apple tart which was very nice. Overall, its an excellent bakery but honestly, for Paris, its very typical. I would certainly return if I was in the area, but would not go out of my way to visit.More

This is a small bakery nestled amongst other shops like a fromagerie all on the same street, where you can easily assemble a delicious picnic. We grabbed two of their award winning croissants for breakfast, and only wished we’d discovered this place sooner (it was...right by our Latin Quarter hotel and steps from our metro stop). We went on a Sunday morning and it seemed to be mostly locals. The only downside is it’s for takeaway only, there’s no seating.More

We stopped here for dessert after lunch, and there were so many choices. The desserts we chose were lovely. Unfortunately, there were no seats here. And neither were there seats nearby to use. But there was a small restaurant with some seating next door and...it was virtually empty. I would guess there were at least 10 empty tables. We sat at one at the very end nearest to d'Isabelle. Although no one had been outside while we were looking for seating, it only took about 3 minutes for a waiter to come out and shoo us off. Given the circumstances. I thought it was pretty rude..More

Arrived in the evening and there was a short line. There's always people coming and going. The two ladies behind the counter were very nice despite how busy they were. We bought croissants, apple tart, chocolate eclairs, and baguette. Their croissants and apple tart are...fantastic. Croissant is only 1 euro. For quality and price. This is clearly a true winner. Apple tart is fantastic and not too sweet. I got a small one for 3 euro and thought I should have gotten a bigger one. I had to save their baguette for the next day so I popped baguette in an oven for a few mins and they were perfect. I wish I stayed somewhere near this bakery so I can try their other creations as well. Overall, excellent bakery with friendly service. A must if you are in Paris.More

I was staying in the Marais so this was a haul for a Croissant but was well worth it. I also had a Pan Au Raison and a Kouign-Amann all three were best I ever have had. This normally could be passed by most folks...but I have eaten many of these. These are by far the best. The reviews and accolades are well earned. I will return here every future trip to Paris. Plus the cost is same as bad versions so why go anywhere else.More

La Maison d'Isabelle is just located above Jussieu Metro. You can smell the croissant before you exit Jussieu Metro. The price of the croissant is cheaper compared to my home country and the taste of it is superb. The only set back is if only...this bakery store has a seated area, then you can order drinks to savour it instead of on the go. (But there is a cafe beside the bakery, not nice to eat takeaway croissant there as the cafe also sell croissant). They do also have other pastries and the way that they display makes me feel like trying everything. Their prize winner is the croissant and they came in 2nd for the eclair. So we also bought the eclair to try. Is good and not so sweet. Worth the travel... You may consider to walk to the Panthéon, which is located behind the bakery and a mere 5 minutes walk.More

I’m not sure where others people reviewing this patisserie are getting their better croissants! The croissants from here are amazing! They are baked constantly throughout the day so they are usually still warm when you get them. They are perfectly golden and crunchy on the...outside and soft and buttery on the outside. You can see the beautiful pastry layers on the outside. The citrus tart is also delicious. We did try a filled baguette which was underwhelming but you definitely can’t go wrong with the plain croissant.More

We were staying two blocks from here and wandered over to the area which looked enticing with a farmers market on a Tuesday morning. A nice line of food shops, and popped in here for a pastry. Wasn't then we realized the award they had...been given for croissants. We tried two and they were the best we've had. The flakyness was beyond! Very small, and a few tables in front would be huge for getting business to hang out and buy more croissants. But looks like they're doing pretty well!More

We wanted to try it because of the Best Croissant award so maybe our expectations were too high. We got a couple of croissants and some pastries. It was just OK, quite average and after visiting other boulangeries, we didn’t understand why this one got...the best croissant award. Don’t go out of your way to visit!More

I heard that this place was voted Best Croissant in 2018, so it was my first stop upon arriving in Paris. Ordering was efficient as there were plenty of staff. There was a huge selection of baked items and pastries, but I only ordered a...croissant. The croissant was huge and I think it cost 1 Euro (which was fair). The inside was good BUT I would have preferred if the outside was less done. It was darker than desired and almost overcooked on the outside. With that said, I did have better croissants at other places in Paris.More
