I have been coming here every time I visit Paris in the last ten years and sadly it seems that the owners have forgotten about the quality of their products. What I once thought was one of the best chocolates in the world is now...More

This company has quite a history and reputation. The history goes back before the Revolution. The reputation is very very good---and it is well earned.The chocolates are quite good and the prices match the quality.

One of the very best chocolatier in Paris. Debauve & Gallais has a classic (and classy) style. No fancy mixtures, and yes less creative than Patrick Roger or Hermé, but chocolate is of true highest quality. Excellent pralinés too, usually not too sweet. A must.

Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
