    Aside from their world-renowned breads, try to head over there around 5pm to get still-warm-from-the-oven apple tarts and a slice of flan which are both the absolute best in the world!

    Bread, gray salt, chocolate croissants, butter cookies and their daily pastry/tart. Gorgeous bread knives (Specify whether you want a right- or left-handed one). Not open on Sundays. Get there early.

    The best bread in Paris based on a secret family recipe. Try their signature loaf, also known as miche or pain au levain, and the famous “punitions”, shortbread cookies that melt in your mouth. Read more

    Tarte aux pommes is the best thing that can happen to you in Paris. I also love their gingerbread cake, tastes awesome with butter and tea...

    One of the best and most classic bakery in Paris. They use old techniques and no preservatives which really make their rustique products shine.

    Literally some of the most highly sought after bread in the world...and for good reason! This is just 1 of many locations across Paris.

    I cannot say enough good things about Poilâne. Not a ton of pastries in the Cherche-Midi shop but what they serve, they do v well. Tartes aux pommes had me salivating after every bite. GO!

    Famous for their massive sourdough loaves, which are luckily available by the slice ("tranche"). Pain Chocolat is also extremely good.

    As you step into this bakery, you would notice that the sourdough bread is commonly used here. This bakery also offers some excellent pastries.

    Amazing sourdough that you can purchase by weight in slices. Still delicious after freezing. Didn't have a good experience with the pain au chocolat, found it way too dense

    Best croissants. No competition. No seating here for retail (though there is a sit down restaurant) so get your pain au chocolat and take it to a nearby park.

    The most amazing apple tartlet, even if it looks unassuming. Get it.

    Nice small and very French. But no where near as good as all the reviews. I am sorry but I have had better croissants from supermarkets!

    Try their Poilâne sourdough bread here. They char the crust and is great with some fresh, salted butter on it.

    Crossiants and punitions are a must-buy. So is their special miche. Look out for their bread chandelier at the back.

    Head over to Poilane for one of the city’s (and the world’s) most famous pain au chocolat. While you’re there, grab some bread, a raisin bun, and basically whatever else you can get your hands on.

    The croissants here are a delicacy. I'm also not a big fan of apple deserts but the tart is amazing.

    Probably best for getting a loaf of bread as opposed to a pastry. No place to sit here.

    It was the worst croissant in my life. They brought it from somewhere outside. No people there at all. Staff is listening their own music, had feeling that I’m in the after party
