All lovers of taste pleasures know that Paris is the destination of choice when you want to explore the world of sweet treats and fine flavours. Here, the Hotel Daunou Opera presents a selection of places where you can enjoy the best Parisian pastries.
The Pâtisserie des Rêves
If you’re nostalgic for the gourmet pastries of your childhood, you’ll certainly want to head to the Rue du Bac or Rue Poncelet. Presented in the original way under dome glassware, the luscious desserts of the Pâtisserie des Rêves are irresistibly tempting creations born from the collaboration between the talented Philippe Conticini and Thierry Teyssier.
Amongst the vast selection of gourmet pastries to be found in Paris, there really is something for everyone! But you’ll find it particularly tough to resist the famous macarons created by Pierre Hermé that offer flavours as varied as rose, amber, and vanilla. And if you are a true lover of sweet pleasures, you will undoubtedly appreciate the original flavour of his croissants, the finesse and lightness of his mille-feuilles, and many other creations of this remarkable pâtissier.
L’Éclair de Génie
Here you’ll be treated to fabulous éclairs in a charming setting. With delicious original creations ranging from pistachio and caramel, vanilla and salted caramel, to lemon yuzu and mascarpone wild strawberries, you’ll be spoiled for choice when the time comes to treat yourself to an indulgent snack.
