Best Baguette 2013 Paris Photo Meg Zimbeck

Mapped: All of Paris’ Top Baguettes

Last week, we reported that Antonio Teixeira had been named the winner (for the second time) of the Best Baguette in Paris competition. We now present the rest of the prizewinning bakers from this annual contest. Because of several ties, the top ten is actually a top 15 list in 2014. The 14th arrondissement, home to the grand prize winner and two other best baguettes, has once again displaced Montmartre as the best ‘hood for bread.

Below, we’ve listed and mapped all the top baguette bakers going back to 2011, so you can always find a good baguette when you need one.
