I have never tasted anything like this! These meringues are to die for. They are light and airy with heavenly flavor. They cost just over 1 euro for a small one, so splurge and taste a few different flavors! I loved this place so much I found another location closer to my hotel in the 7th. Now I wish I... More

Lovely desserts! I highly recommend. You can see people outside making the cakes. We got a sample of the smaller cakes which I think is the best way to go since the larger ones can be a bit sweet!

We stumbled upon this gem one night on our after dinner stroll back to the hotel. We looked in the window and had no idea what were were looking at, but they were pretty, and we were committed to trying anything that looked interesting, beautiful, and/or delicious during our mini-vacation. I honestly cannot do justice to the experiences of eating... More

We stumbled across this place with the permeating smell of fresh bread and lines out the door. We decided to check it out and are glad we did! We tried a caramel meringue ball and it was way better than any marshmallow or meringue dessert I've ever had. It just melts in your mouth. With the smell of the fresh... More

While visiting Paris, I was on a guided market tour and was informed by our guide that this is her favourite patisserie (visited the shop in 12 place d'Aligre, 75012 Paris). We stopped at this lovely shop, with our mouths watering watching the staff make some products. The 'Merveilleux' looked beautifually presented so I had to buy some, tried 'Le... More

We tried 5 different flavors. The caramel flavor was the best. The merveilleux are very light and fragile. You have to eat them quick.

We loved this place. It is a trip. It specializes in meringues, which is my favorite food. We also spent time in the location in the Marais. I like plain meringues, but these folks make elaborate meringue logs and cakes. Every time we visited (4), there was a line out the door. You can watch the staff making the goods,... More

It's one of the top patisserie must visit in Paris!! They only create the famous merveilleux!! Cakes with soft meringue and milk, dark or white chocolate!! Must taste!! It's pity they have no space to sit down and eat with a nice coffee.

Neighborhood Profile
Trocadero
This is the neighborhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendor, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
