Patrick Roger

The clean lines of Roger’s shop show off his bold style and playful displays. Contemporary flavors like lemongrass and Sichuan peppercorn mix with classic pralines, dark ganaches, and caramels. A Meilleur Ouvrier de France.

Le Bonbon au Palais

The tall glass jars in this bright and airy shop are filled with colorful artisanal candies from around France — pastilles, calissons, pâtes de fruit, chocolates — and plenty of nostalgia.

Pierre Marcolini

Brussels-based Pierre Marcolini is known for his carefully sourced, small estate, single origin tablets, but there’s plenty to please here, from macarons to chocolate-covered marshmallows.

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.

Pralus

This Roanne-based shop is known for their bean-to-bar chocolate tablets – packaged in unmistakable, multicolored stacks – and Praluline, a praline-studded brioche.

Christian Constant

Not to be confused with the guy with several restaurants on rue Sainte Dominique, this Christian Constant is a chocolatier and full-service traiteur. In warm months, this is a good shop for ice cream; the glaces here are freshly made, with no stabilizers or additives.

Jacques Genin

Madman Jacques Genin crafts some of the city’s most exquisite chocolate, but he’s almost equally known for his caramels and pâtes de fruits. His revered pâtisserie (lemon tarts, eclairs…) is temporarily on hold.

Jean-Charles Rochoux

Jean-Charles Rochoux is one of the few chocolatiers in Paris with a workshop on premise, which makes walking into this shop — filled with aromas of chocolate and caramel — a particular pleasure.

Georges Larnicol

Larnicol is known for his whimsical chocolate centerpieces and sculptures, as well as his signature kouignettes, a miniature, deeply caramelized version of the classic kouign amann.

Hugo & Victor

Pastry chef Hugues Pouget gives classic and seasonal flavors dueling personalities – the innovative Hugo and more classic Victor – in this sleek boutique. Macarons, chocolates, and breakfast treats are on offer, too.
