We popped into this place for the choux while visiting Paris on Christmas 2019. The cafe is located in the very downtown of Paris, literally a few steps from Notre Dame and some other important monuments. The place is really small (it fits a handful...of tables per floor) and it has 3 floors. The personnel does speak English and is able to advise on the selection of choux. However, I have to say that they come at a price which is not exactly corresponding with the quality of the ingredients and the taste. I hate to say but it seems that there would be many other places in Paris (incl. some design pastry boutiques) that would fare much much better in what comes to desserts (sad but true - we had much tastier choux in Thessaloniki in Greece earlier in 2019). All in all, could be a place to go ONCE for a choux in Paris, but I would recommend looking elsewhere. P.S. the coffee was bad - I advise the owner to change the coffee supplier.More

The best creampuffs are found here, so glad I was here. Try the pistachio flavour! The cafe is very pretty too, great for photos.

This was a fun, quaint place to stop for some coffees and cream puffs one afternoon. Just the perfect treat. This place is small with some tables outside - on a beautiful day, it’s the perfect stop to watch all that is going on.

Small restaurant where you can sit outside and have a couple of glasses of bubbly and people watch. Memorable

How did I not know about this place sooner? On a recent trip to Paris I did some planning ahead for all of my favorite French pastries and desserts and found this as one of the best for cream puffs so I added it to...my must-go-to lists and I'm so happy I did! Location: It's located within a couple blocks of the Notre Dame Cathedral so it's the perfect stop before or after to grab a snack when visiting the cathedral. Staff: The woman that took our order spoke enough English to understand our order and respond back to us in English. She was also very patient with us as we read through all the flavors they had on display before we decided what we wanted. Cream Puffs: I never knew I was a fan of cream puffs until I tried the ones from Odette. I had the passion fruit and a vanilla. The puff on each one had the perfect texture. They were light and fluffy and really was just a shell for the cream portion. They almost had a light crunch but not really; it's hard to explain. The cream's were heavenly. I could eat these all day every day. I'm totally a fan!More

What a wonderful little cafe. All homemade little cakes by Odette are sensational with plenty of flavour. No wonder this is such a popular place in the Latin Quarter. Not to be missed.

We sat upstairs in a quaint room which the four of us had to ourselves by the window with the view which I have to say was delightful. Welcoming staff and nice service. Lovely coffee and a cream puff which are delicious but you pay...for it, it is expensive. Still worth a visit though, it’s so quaint.More

Lovely cafe with scrumptious cream puffs overlook Notre Dame. Walking distance to and from the river and cobblestone streets nearby.

Of a bit stingy volume, but pretty good cafe au lait, cream puffs are incredibly delicious, but their price helps you maintain your lean posture.

Across the river of the Nortre dam cathedral, it’s amazing how close you can view the church and enjoy the cream puffs at the same time! It is the tiny size so you may not feel full with only one piece- various kinds and so...great to see the pretty colorful cream puffs in the show case. I don’t know what time they fill the cream but assuming it’s more fresh if you go in early time of the day. I visited in the early afternoon - the skin of puff wasn’t crisp but not too damp yet. The vanilla was so flavorful that was forgiven. Simply yummy with the gorgeous view! You can step in to the small park nearby to enjoy the instant picnic to savor this cream puff.More

I know that 1 choux pastry is 1.90 euros. A box of 6 pastries is 9.90 euros. A box of 12 pastries is 19.80 euros. I honestly am not for sure about the cost of tea, but I am for certain about the prices of the pastries... More
