I tried Maison Hardel near Champs Elysees which is an artisanal boulangerie and patisserie, and it was quite good. This is literally a hole in the wall place with only Boulangerie written in bold letters. If it would not have been for my local friends, I would have not explored it. I heard Maison Laduree also does lovely strawberry tarts, but unfortunately couldn’t try it on my trip. But do visit and let me know what you think!
When you want a break from French food
In case you’re tired of French vegetarian dishes and looking for a change, try the falafels in the Jewish quarter of Le Marais. The locality is dotted with lots of cafés, art galleries, and East European Jewish restaurants. Stroll along the cobbled streets and stop for a bite at Chez Hanna. It’s a tiny place and almost always full so you might have to do a take-away. The falafels, fresh hummus and grilled eggplant are tasty and filling and won’t create a dent in your pocket.
