Debauve & Gallais

Sulpice Debauve was the chocolatier to Marie Antoinette, and you’ll pay a queen’s ransom for a box of her preferred pistoles. She ate them as medicine, and this shop retains its original apothecary display case. A Paris chocolate landmark.

Figaroscope (2010) “Atmosphère surannée mais so chic dans cette boutique classique…”

Serious Eats (2010) “The history and experience is readily apparent, even in the mere eight truffles I had at my disposal—the range of shapes, sizes, patterns, and decorations (transfer sheets! Fleur-de-lis molds! Colorful tinfoil wrappers!) are mind-blowing.”
