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.
When I lived in Paris I used to buy my chocolates there. They were among the finest of Paris. Being back in Paris this week, I thought I would go back and buy some more. What a disappointment! The quality has completely plummeted in recent...More
I am a chocolate lover, I adore chocolate. I wanted to visit this shop because it is the oldest chocolate shop in Paris and, of course, to buy chocolates. I chose the chocolates myself rather than buying a ready-filled box. The shop is a lovely...More
One of the very best chocolatier in Paris.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. 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
musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
