    Note: It's Pierre Hermé!

    His Paris shops are on 72, Rue Bonaparte, 6th arr. and on 185, Rue de Vaugirard, 15th arr.


    Use the Yellow Pages to search patisseries and chocolatiers in the 4th arr.

        I think you may be referring to Pain de Sucre at 14 rue Rambuteau (metro of same name.) Not sure if the couple behind this place are disciples of Hermé but they did work for a big name before and the place is incredibly popular, especially with tourists snapping photos of everything ;-) Well worth a visit.

              "whatever" as my teenaged niece would say ;-) The place is still great. Most people go for the pastries but their breads are very good and they have some fabulous little savory buns. My fave is a pear/chevre combo and the one with pork bits (lardons), red peppers and olives. You can practically make a lunch of them (and they are far cheaper than the pastries.)

              Oh I see. Disciple wasn't in my vocabulary so far... Merci.

              Anyway, here are some superb photos from Pain de Sucre and other high end patissiers:
