Du Pain et des Ides

Considered by many to be the best bakery in the whole ciiy, Du Pain et des Idees is definitely one of the most creative places that make pastries and breads every day. You can try their famous chocolate pistachio “escargots” which are not snails but delicious pastries or specialty items like their turmeric bread, which is divine.

Perhaps the most famous and beloved bread bakery in Paris, Poilâne’s miche de pain is its signature loaf: a thick crust with a thick crumb that complements any meal, topping or enjoyed on its own. Anyone with a weakness for bread must see. For those with a sweet tooth, don’t worry, because you can try their incredible apple tart.

Stohrer

Stohrer has been called the oldest bakery in Paris, as it has been around since 1730. Located on rue Montorguil, it’s on a street full of bustling crowds and world-class dining locations. Nicholas Stohrer is said to have studied with the pastry chefs in the kitchen of the King of Poland and was brought to Versailles by the King’s daughter, who became the wife of King Louis XV. Five years later he opened his shop, and it is still open today. It’s designed in an opulent style that helps you get into the Versailles mindset as you choose which delectable treat you want to try.
