Join the hushed masses who queue worship at the altar of pastry demigod Pierre Hermé. Tarts, cakes, chocolates, ice cream and, of course, macarons.
The grande dame of Paris pâtisseries, and where Macaron Mania began.
A beautiful pastry shop and tea salon, with privileged locations at Trocadero and the Place des Vosges.
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.
Calling all sweet freaks! Pierre Herme has opened yet another location of his eponymous bakery--this time in the heart of the Marais on rue Sainte-Croix-de-la-Bretonnerie. Best of all, it will be open all summer long for you to get your fix from the macaron master.
