Paris Bouge (2016) “L’incroyable (inégalable même!) chocolat chaud aux notes biscuitées et pralinées, la tablette «grand cru» au lait et noisettes, l’entremet noisettes avec crème de noisettes, ganache gianduja nappé d’une couche chocolat/amande. Vous le sentez ce goût de l’enfance? Addictif, sucré et craquant, lacté et boisé, c’est l’obsession de Cyril Lignac.”

Le Figaro (2016) “Officiellement, ce petit bout d’enseigne s’annonce comme un «coffee & bakery» (il y a de cela) si ce n’est qu’on y profite aussi de la sacrée touche d’un binôme cuistot – pâtissière boutiquant des assiettes intuitives, sans codes ni frontières hors celle du feeling.”

Du Pain et Des Idées

Christophe Vasseur’s breads are worth crossing town for, and many people do. Beyond the famous pain des amies pictured above, his viennoiseries are really something special. Croissants and pain au chocolat are reliable, but the various escargots, with flavors that change with the seasons, always present a delicious dilemma. On a recent visit, both the pistache chocolat and citron amande made it into my bike basket. The chausson aux pommes is filled with pure, not-to-sweet apple, and is something of a revelation for those used to run of the mill apple turnovers. Sample your sweets (or some of the savory breads sold from a basket near the register) at the picnic table outside, or on a bench at the banks of the nearby Canal.

fig tart laurent favre-mot | parisbymouth.com

Laurent Favre-Mot

Between the chocolate mustache-topped sable sandwich cookies that resemble an inside-out Oreo, the “f*cking dark” chocolate tarts topped off with chocolate skulls, or a lemon cream in between sesame madeleines disguised as a hamburger, this pastry shop can feel a bit too self-consciously cool. Thankfully, the sweets mostly deliver, and the tattooed and bearded eponymous pastry chef is present most days, and gracious. The deconstructed cheesecake inside of a Camembert box is an interesting take on a ubiquitous dessert, and the fresh fig tart with dragées rich with an intensely vanilla cream in a crisp, not-too-sweet shell. Pastries taken to-go are packaged in reusable plastic pencil cases adorably slapped with a robot sticker. In yet another departure from his peers, Laurent Favre-Mot will be offering a limited savory lunch and brunch in the back room of the pâtisserie.

madeleines at gilles marchal source FB | parisbymouth.com

Gilles Marchal

The giant madeleine door handle and the tiny seashell shaped sweets printed on the wallpaper are a good indicator of what lies within. The classic childhood treat is here elevated to a work of art in a variety of flavors. Delicately perfumed with crisp, buttery edges, the lemon glazed and salted caramel were particularly excellent. Madeleines were invented in Alsace where pastry chef Gilles Marchal hails from, and, while his are more expensive than most, they’re superlative within their category. It’s no surprise given that Marchal was the pastry chef for a number of years at Le Bristol, Plaza Athénée, and La Maison du Chocolat before striking out to open his own neighborhood bakery.  The madeleines might be the stars of the show, but there are numerous other options including breakfast pastries, after school snacks, an ice cream cart in summer, and artfully presented tarts, such as a piquant lemon tart garnished with meringue cigarettes. There’s even occasionally a solid gluten-free option in the form of a “sacher cake” which resembles a chocolatey tiramisu. There’s no space to sit so plan on taking your pastries to-go and snacking on the steps of Sacre-Coeur.

Chambelland gluten free bakery in Paris | parisbymouth.com

Chambelland

From the formica tables to the sweetly mismatched china, Chambelland looks like any other trendy café in the 11th with the notable exception that all of their food is gluten-free. The only thing “crunchy” at this sleek spot is its literally crunchy (and excellent) five grain bread. The bakery specializes in crusty rice & buckwheat breads using flour from their own mill in Provence. The delicately scented orange flower wand and focaccia are two excellent options for the gluten intolerant and tolerant alike. The small café serves hearty sandwiches (with vegetarian options), soups and salads, plus a selection of cakes, tarts, a brownie cookie hybrid, and even chouquettes for dessert.
