Paris is known for numerous things; from being titled the city of romance, fashion and
food but the main appeal for me is the bakery and desserts. An array of sweet treats
and desserts we are accustomed to derive from France such as French toast,
profiteroles, crème brûlée, eclairs, canelé, and the list goes on! This was my main
inspiration for going back to France for the fourth time… Wherever there’s good food, I’m there! Here is a list of places I visited on my trip:
If you’re close to Montmarte, visit this colourful cafe and try a classic eclair or apricot tart (definitely my favourite bite there). For something savoury, the olive, tomato and cheese flatbread is delicious.
Address: 88 Rue des Martyrs, 75018 Paris, France
Another cute, minimalistic cafe near Montmarte and a few minute’s walk from Pain Pain in case you’re on a bakery crawl like I was. Try a fig tart or a canelé. They also sell hand painted post cards of Paris for anyone wanting something a little unique.
Address: 9 Rue Ravignan, 75018 Paris, France
46 & 3rd Cafe
The ultimate brunch for pancake lovers! Beware this place is known for queues as most
good places in Paris are. Whilst the interior is simple and cosy, the food is bursting with
flavour. I ordered a chai latte which tasted divine and exotic fruit pancakes consisting of
dragon fruit, berries, banana, popcorn and covered in chocolate sauce. A sweet tooth is
definitely required for this dish but the avocado toast with salmon is a good alternative
Address: 46 Rue De Turbigo 75003 Paris
Printemps Haussman – Delicatisserie
I didn’t get to visit the following but they were on my list so here are some more
One of the classic places to visit during your time in Paris but there’s a long queue so
be prepared for the wait. Website: https://www.angelina-paris.fr/en/home
The ultimate place to try all the macaron flavours you like. If you don’t get the chance to
visit, there are a few branches in London so don’t worry, you won’t miss out!
A must visit for the most aesthetic desserts and a pot of hot chocolate.
