Reviews of interest

France Today (2014) “Today the shop is part national treasure, part tourist destination, it has diversified into traiteur and event catering but it remains, essentially, a delightful pâtisserie.”

David Lebovitz (2010) “…take refuge in Stohrer, the oldest pastry shop in Paris…do check out the ceiling, which is magnificent. Founder Nicholas Stohrer invented the Baba au Rhum, and the version here is still one of the best.”

Camille Malmquist (2008) “In all, it’s pretty clear that Stohrer is operating on a level above the majority of pastry shops in Paris.  From the crust of the tart to the chocolate garnish, no detail is overlooked.  True, it’s a little pricier than most pastry shops, but the quality of the product and the care that goes into it make a trip to Stohrer well worth it.

Chrisoscope (2007) ” Cornet classique (pas gaufré, pas très bon), glace au yaourt OK, j’ai bien aimé, à part que la texture n’est pas partout homogène, glace au chocolat pas assez froide, et au goût un peu faiblard.”
