Description: Heir to four generations of Alsatian bakery and pastry-making tradition, Pierre Hermé began his career at the age of 14 as an apprentice to Gaston Lenôtre. Famous all around the world, the man that Vogue called "the Picasso of Pastry" revolutionized pastrymaking with regard to taste and modernity. With "pleasure as his only guide", Pierre Hermé invented his own unique world of tastes, sensations and pleasures, an original approach to the profession of pastry chef which led him to revolutionize even the most firmly entrenched traditions. Created in 1997 by Pierre Hermé and Charles Znaty, the company has been expanding strongly since 2010 on the international scene with several boutiques now located in Europe, Asia and the Middle East. Pierre Hermé Paris operates an online boutique and is a member of the Comité Colbert and has established partnerships with the Raffles group, Ritz Carlton group and Dior

“Amazing Macaroons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

What can I say - Pierre Herme has the best macaroon in Paris. Shame that when I visited they didn't have their special flavours such as White Truffle and Foie Gras, but all the ones that i have had were amazing. Will definitely come back again to also try its other pastries .

“Best macaroons in Paris”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 15, 2014

If you are a gourmand and you love macaroons this is for you. So much better than Laduree. It can be quite pricey with the big macaroons costing 5 euro but they are very much worth the price. The mixture of flavours is quite excentric and they're not very sweet. Some of my favourites are the salted caramel and the mogador. However the travel box is quite convenient and not so expensive at 17 euros. If you are in Paris you shouldn't miss this place. Awesome!

“One of the best”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

They have a wide selection of flavours. The taste is awesome, not too sweet and it melts in the mouth. Personally I find this better than Laduree.

“Best. Macarons. Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2014 via mobile

I can only describe the Macarons as melt in your mouth fantastic. They are on the pricey side at €2.05 each for the small ones but they are absolutely worth it in my opinion. I went for an assortment of 10 Macarons and the taste just got better and better. It would be lovely if there was a coffee shop attached to enjoy the experience but if you get a chance I highly recommend a visit
