Really enjoyed their almond croissants and their raspberry tarts. Beautifully presented and packaged.

This patisserie is about two blocks away from the Musee d'Orsay and it was a perfect light lunch and after museum snack place. The croissants were flaky and delicious, as were the strawberry tart and lemon tart. It tends to get busy inside the bakery, so its helpful if you know what you want to order before you start ordering. Otherwise, they may be a bit snippy with you!

Gosselin was a cute little shop tucked away on a side street and we each ordered a quiche and a dessert. I ordered a spinach and cheese quiche. The bitter flavor of the spinach paired perfectly with the sharpness of the cheese and the crust's flaky and crunchy texture. Then came dessert! I ordered a mille feuilles pistache framboises. It was basically a layer of flaky crunchy pastry covered in powdered sugar, a pistachio mousse that was the perfect balance of airy and rich, fresh raspberries, another layer of pastry, a layer of some type of raspberry preserves, and another layer of pastry. It was incredible! I may or may not have licked the plate at the end....READ THE FULL REVIEW AT http://godsavethefood.blogspot.com/2011/10/city-of-lights.html

This is a bakery, not a sit-down restaurant, but once you try the food, you won't care that there aren't any tables. We had croissants for breakfast, and then came back for quiche for lunch and macaroons to take out. Everything was SO amazingly good and reasonably priced. This place is between the metro stop and Musee d'Orsay, so make sure you stop by.

I happened upon this place on a visit to the Orsay Museum. I purchased a ham croissant. It melted in my mouth. I never knew how good a croissant could be before Gosselin. Needless to say, I returned on two more occasions. I had their macarons (chocolate and pistachio), which were delightful. I also purchased the chocolates they make to gift as gifts. This is a takeout place. You can buy something and then walk a few short blocks (3, I think) to the Orsay where you can sit on the outside steps and enjoy your treats. Or you can make a right onto St. Germain and walk down to a cute little park that has benches. I tried croissants elsewhere in Paris but Gosselin's were by far the best.
