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.

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.

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.

Le Valentin

Tucked into one of the covered passages in the ninth, Le Valentin specializes in Alsatian sweets, and serves breakfast and lunch in their tea salon.
