Jean-Pierre Cohier

This bakery, known for its excellent baguettes, also makes a fine range of pastries, including what Gilles Pudlowski calls the best baba in Paris.

Popelini

This bakery — named for the Italian cook who supposedly invented pâte à choux — sells only cream puffs. Tiny, adorable cream puffs.

Fauchon

One of the most recognizeable gourmet food brands in the world, with a sprawling shop selling all manner of condiments, chocolates, plus a pâtisserie and café.

Sébastien Gaudard

Sebastien Gaudard, formerly of Delicabar — has taken over this longstanding rue des Martyrs pâtisserie, where he’s sticking with the classics.

La Pâtisserie des Rêves

A hit since it opened in 2009, this modern and playful pastry shop has won raves for its Paris-Brest. The rue du Bac location is take-away only, but in the 16th you’ll find a full-service tea salon with outdoor seating.
