I stop in at Jacques Genin every time I visit Paris. I love everything about this place: the location, the vibe, the customer service, the chocolates and even the metal tins. I find their prices to be very competitive and their chocolates are always lovely.

Lovely chocolate shop with beautiful selection. My friend and I popped by to try their caramel praline egg – it did not disappoint! Quite expensive but you get what you pay for.
