Today I will take you to the best pastry shops in Paris. Let’s go!
We start this tour of Paris with the first and unmissable Pierre Hermé patisserie. With its seven shops in Paris, you are sure to find what you are looking for. His world of tastes, sensations and pleasures earned him the title of best pastry chef in the world in 2016.
Let’s jump back in time to the 1730s to discover the oldest pastry shop in Paris, Stohrer. Known for having welcomed the Queen of England a few years ago, commemorating 100 years of understanding between France and Great Britain, its founder Nicolas Stohrer is nothing less than the inventor of the rum baba. It is therefore in an establishment rich in history that the classics of French pastry are made and sublimated. Click here to see the website !
Now let’s go and discover the pastry shop that specialises in all kinds of éclairs. Beware, love at first sight guaranteed! L’éclair de génie, founded by Christophe Adam, specialises in making eclairs, each one more surprising than the last. We fall in love with the sure things like vanilla pecan or dark chocolate, as well as with the more fanciful ones, lemon yuzu, pistachio raspberry or passion fruit.

It’s a must for food lovers: Cyril Lignac’s Pâtisserie is one of the best in Paris. In particular for its lemon tart, whose hazelnut shortbread is filled with compote and covered with a sheet of white chocolate. The lemon vanilla topping makes it even tastier.
