Bob’s Bake Shop

Bob (aka Marc Grossman)’s mini empire continues to expand with American style diner and bakery complete with pecan or lattice-topped cherry pie, Belleville Brulerie coffee, hand-rolled bagels and even their elusive brethren bialys. There’s a pretty lovely outdoor terrasse, too.

Carette

A beautiful pastry shop and tea salon, with privileged locations at Trocadero and the Place des Vosges.

Meert

This ornate pastry shop has a long legacy in Lille dating back to 1761. Their thin waffle cookies stuffed with a variety of creams have only been available in Paris since 2010, however.

Helmut Newcake

Thanks to this pastry shop in the 10th, gluten-intolerant gourmandes can have their gateau and eat it, too.

Thierry Renard

Formerly located in the 13th, award-winning baker Thierry Renard set up shop on rue de Cherche Midi in early 2012.

Délices du Palais

Antonio Teixeira won first prize in the 2014 and 1998 Grand Prix de la Baguette. He’ll be keeping the Elysées Palace in bread all year long. His pastries have won multiple prizes, too.

Gâteaux Thoumieux

A mint green & marble pastry palace from Jean-François Piège, whose rue Saint-Dominique mini empire includes Brasserie Thoumieux, Restaurant Jean-François Piège, and Hôtel Thoumieux. The salted butter and pear tart was particularly pleasing, but skip the disappointing and aggressively chewy macarons.
