Reviews of interest

Time Out (2012) “The sweet little mouthfuls with their creamy centres are decorated with Morello cherries or finished with lemon, caramel, pistachio. Allow €1.85 each, €11 for 6 and €21 for 12.”

T Magazine (2011) “On any given day, the choux are lined up in a half dozen flavors including dark chocolate, lemon praline, salted butter caramel, Madagascar vanilla and rose; some have an additional confit filling of passion fruit or raspberry.”

Caroline Mignot (2011) “Je dirais que c’est le genre de petites choses parfaites à dévorer sur le moment, en sortant de la boutique, tandis que la crème sort de tous les côtés..”

Paris Pâtisseries (2011) “…it’s a cute shop in a fun little neighborhood. However . . . the work isn’t where it could be. I purchased three rose-framboise, a violette, a caramel, a pistache and a vanille; they were all ok – better than average…”

Dorie Greenspan (2011) “…the spare new boutique is not much bigger than the puffs in the display case — and the puffs are petit.  Very. They’re also deeply flavorful — the creams are velvety, luxurious, really, and full-flavored.”
