A desserts in Paris map, so you always know what delicious desserts are close by… ( + printable pdf map at the end).
L’Eclair de Genie
Although a famous dessert in Paris, I’m not a huge eclair fan, so it took me a few trips to Paris before I even tried these. So you know when I say that they are absolutely divine, they must be pretty amazing. I feel like this is the eclair of all eclairs. L’Eclair de Genie is so much better than any eclair I’ve ever had, they almost taste like a dessert in their own league. I could have eaten so many more of these, we loved the vanilla eclair.

Angelina is full of delicious desserts, with their signature dessert being the Mont-Blanc. But for me, Angelina is all about the chocolat chaud (hot chocolate). The perfect consistency and flavour, a must try when you’re in Paris.
108 Rue de Bac (+ other locations)

Aux Merveilleux de Fred
Here you can get a little slice of heaven, otherwise known as Merveilleux cakes. Imagine a light fluffy meringue coated with whipped cream and other toppings. They are a must try dessert in Paris. We loved the meringue with cherry whipped cream coated with crystallized cherry meringue.

Carette has one of the best Chausson aux Pommes in Paris. They are crispy yet soft, giant yet just enough. And they get extra points because it has a pretty unique look. Chausson aux Pommes are, in my opinion, one of the best pastries to eat in Paris. These apple filled pastries are so so good, great for breakfast or a snack. Carette also has many other worthwhile sweets. We love the macarons from Carette too.
