- Caroline Mignot (2013) “Pain de Sucre est dorénavant divisé en deux parties : une boutique boulangerie/traiteur et une boutique pâtisserie/confiserie. Les créations salées font penser à de la pâtisserie délicate et créative mais version salée, comme cette incroyable tarte aux tomates cerise qui me fait baver devant la vitrine.”
- Dorie Greenspan (2010) “…then along the rue Rambuteau, which means only one thing to me: Pain de Sucre, the matchbox-size patisserie with the lovely square tarts, luscious marshmallows and breads chockful of things like nuts and fruits and grain and seeds.”
- Braden Perkins (2010) “Pastry chefs and Pierre Gagnaire alums Didier Mathray and Nathalie Robert have become the square tart and marshmallow mavens of the 3rd. Chocolate covered marshmallows on a stick and individual baba au rhums stabbed with a rum filled plastic syringe are both fantastic as are the mint macaroons.”
- Clotilde Dusoulier (2008) “Rarely am I disappointed, but I do have to mention that one recent time when I bought an assortment from Pain de Sucre and got mostly weirdo flavors nobody in their right mind would want in their marshmallows — I’m talking chicory and whiskey, angelique, or saffron and chili pepper. I mean, really, I’m as open-minded as the next person, but what’s next…”
- Clotilde Dusoulier (2005) “…a new and very promising pastry shop…They have a striking selection of creative tartlets and pastries and desserts in glasses, I have heard great things about their brioche, and they have the most tempting stuffed bread rolls that look like pains au chocolat, only savory.”
