The 8 essential Paris bakeries you have to visit

March 17, 2019
Whether you’re a fan of pain au chocolats, have a penchant for eclairs or prefer buttery croissants, you’ll find something to satiate your appetite in one of these bakeries. We’ve scoured the French capital to find the best bakeries in Paris so you never have to worry about eating sub standard baked goods again.

Du Pain Et Des Idées

We guarantee Du Pain Et Des Idées’s trademark loaf will have you going back for more after trying it just once. Baked in a wood fire oven with a slightly sweet and nutty taste, it’s regarded by some as the best bread in the capital. But it’s not all about the bread here. Also be sure to try the apple turnover for something a bit sweeter.

Odette

We don’t say this lightly, but Odette undoubtedly serves the best cream puffs (choux à la crème in French) in Paris. Conveniently located just steps away from Notre Dame cathedral, this is the place to come after a long morning of sightseeing. There is plenty of outdoor seating so you can watch the world go by with a coffee as you eat.

Polaine Bakery

This family-run bakery has been selling bread to hungry Parisians since 1932 so it’s fair to say they know a thing or two about baking. Their signature bread, christened the “Pain Poilâne” is characterised by a thick crust, dense crumb and a remarkable flavour. If you like something with a little bit more creativity they also serve rye bread and raisin loafed and a selection of pastries and cakes. The perfect place to go if you want to get a feel for living like a local in Paris

Angelina

Famous for serving one of the best hot chocolates in Paris, Angelina also serves up delicious pastries that you’ll find it hard to say no to. Soak up the grand surroundings as you tuck into one of the fluffiest, creamiest eclairs you’re ever likely to lock lips with.

Utopie

Utopie was started by two friends (one a baker and one a patisserie chef) who used to work at the world-famous Laduree. Their speciality is bread and the crowds seem to love it as it’s climbed to the coveted number one spot on Trip Advisor for bakeries in Paris. The atmosphere is relaxed and laidback and full of the neighbourhood’s trendiest locals.

Chambelland

Just because you don’t eat gluten, doesn’t mean you can’t indulge on your visit to Paris. Chambelland specialises in gluten free breads, pastries and cakes. It also serves gluten free sandwiches at lunch if you want something a little more substantial. But you certainly don’t have to follow a gluten free diet to enjoy this place. Wheat eaters will also appreciate the delicious creations.
