This was recommended to us by friends who love Paris. I wholeheartedly endorse their good 'taste'. Cool, modern, and welcoming. Both service and taste treats are a pleasure after pounding the streets. Make sure you do a Find Location for this small unassuming shop. We sampled chocolates, stayed for creamy thick hot chocolate and pastries.....try any and all of what... More

Fortunately we visited Jacques Genin on our last day in Paris otherwise we would have visited many more times! The hot chocolate was just amazing, so smooth and rich! Yum! It was the best I had in Paris and ever! Not sure I needed to have anything with the hot chocolate however I ordered the vanilla mille feuille. Wow, that... More

I have been waiting and dreaming about Jacques Genin’s goodies for five long years. I was ready to go there on our arrival day but they were closed on Mondays. We got there around 6PM and were hoping that they still serve their famous Mille Feuille. Our waitress told us about the two offerings, one being Mille Feuille and the... More

Stumbled upon this place by luck! We wanted to buy chocolates for gift to bring back but was not impressed with some of the other chocolate stores we went to. It wasn't until we were given some caramel from this chocolate place as parting gifts after dining at Le Cinq and Epicure (2 very expensive meals) Just one bite and... More

Popped in here for a look since the shop was near our hotel. Sampled a piece of the dark choc with mint and it was lovely. Really strong mint flavour and not artificial tasting. Intended to go back and try the famous pastry but got sidetracked.

Made a brief stop here as part of a food tour and returned for an indulgent afternoon tea. The hot chocolate was wonderful, as was the choccochino (hot chocolate with coffee). The pastries on offer were great - citron tart with basil and caramel tart with walnuts. We learned on the food tour that only a couple of pastries are... More

Jacques Genin might be famous for his chocolates and caramels, but his Praliné Mille Feuille IS ALSO OUT OF THIS WORLD (€9.00) Made to order, the delicate and extremely crispy layers of puff pastry are buttery and flaky AF. The Praliné cream was insanely good, so smooth, not overly sweet. I was immediately depressed once it was over. Best I... More

Lovely relaxed chocolaterie and coffee house. Pricier than a normal coffee shop but beautifully presented food (the Mille Feuille was extremely delicate and delicious) and plenty of space to browse and buy the chocolates too.

We were taken to the restaurant by a family member living in town. From the street it would be really easy to miss this place, there is almost no street presence. Inside, the place has a very minimalist environment, very sophisticated. The food - hard to imagine it could be any better. Everything we had was divine. I heartily recommend... More

We were just here to buy chocolate. This place is amazing. All the delicious chocolates are laid out in jewelry cases. There you can admire to your heart's content. Of course my wallet opened and I got to place many of these beauties in my bag. The chocolate is wonderful. The white glove service is superb. The care of presentation... More

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.
