This wedding cake bakery has a café in front, serving house made American style treats, and - whoa! - free refills on drip coffee.
Madman Jacques Genin crafts some of the city’s most exquisite chocolate, but he’s almost equally known for his caramels and pâtes de fruits. Visit his salon in the northern Marais to gain access to a made-to-order millefeuille or a pot of decadent chocolat chaud. Update: as of January 2013, Genin is no longer making individual-sized pastries to go (many of which are reviewed below), but you can still order a pastry of the day or a millefeuille in the salon.
This trés cozy brunch spot and tea salon is known for savory and sweet tarts, including a mile-high lemon meringue. Prepare to queue.
