Chocolate in the Latin Quarter?

I have a friend who will be in Paris for about a week, and has asked me to solicit suggestions for a good chocolatier in the Latin Quarter of Paris. I did a search, and gave her some city-wide suggestions from previous threads. I am wondering if anyone can make a recommendation for something specific to The Latin Quarter.

Thanks in advance

  1. Jeff de Bruges, 66, Blvd. Saint-Germain and 112, Rue Mouffetard, 5th

    Not exactly Quartier Latin, but nearby and IMO better than JdB:

    Patrick Roger, 108, Blvd. Saint-Germain, 6th
    Pierre Marcolini, 89, Rue de Seine, 6th
    Pierre Hermé, 72, Rue Bonaparte, 6th
    La Maison du Chocolat, 19, Rue de Sèvres, 6th
    Jean-Paul Hévin, 3, Rue Vavin, 6th

    They all do have web page for further info like hours, etc.

      Also a stretch from latin quarter but I would like to emphasise that, IMO, the best chocolate macaroons are found next to the Champ de Mars, in the rue Saint Dominique: Grégory Renard. They mostly serve fancy restaurants and luxurious hotels but you can buy small quantities or place orders.

    2. Also not exactly in the Latin Quarter, but just on the other side of the Luxembourg Gardens is Christian Constant. Great hot chocolates, too.

      Christian CONSTANT

        totally second christian Constant- everything is great there and don't go without having some ice-cream, they make that Berthillon business taste boring in comparison.

      2. JP Hevin on Rue Vavin. the caramels are very good, too

        Pierre Herme on Rue Bonaparte. everything is wonderful. I purchased some unusual jams that were also fabulous.
