Who doesn’t love French pâtisseries, those beautiful and adorable sweet treats?
When in Paris, I never have enough time (and stomach space) to enjoy as many croissants au beurre, pain au chocolats, canelés, or financiers as I would like. Still, I love to discover new pâtissiers and boulangeries. My latest favorite is Sébastien Gaudard and his very classic and pretty space at 22 rue des Martyrs in the 9th arrondissement, where he offers classic French pastry like baba au rhum, Paris-Brest, mille-feuille and meringue cake, tarts, eclairs, and so much more. His croissants were crowned second-best in all of Paris, although I wouldn’t know how they could be better.
