The scent of viennoiseries barely out of the oven as the sun peeps over the horizon, the fabulous taste of a fresh crusty baguette in the morning, the delight of an authentic jambon-beurre at noon, and a sweet delicacy in the late afternoon... The boulangeries (bakeries) are a constant joy throughout the day. Here are the favourites of the Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle...
Our most beautiful traditional bakeries
Let's start with an absolute must: Au Petit Versailles du Marais. Amidst a sumptuous setting that is a listed historical monument, the Meilleur Ouvrier de France Christian Vabret offers bread of a supremely high quality. Between the ficelles and the sourdough bread, you’ll be unable to resist leaving a little room for some remarkable traditional pâtisseries. Or head to the Canal Saint-Martin and encounter the skills of Christophe Vasseur in his shop, Du Pain et des Idées. Perfect pain des amies, brilliant brioches, superb sourdough, and a vibrant vintage décor; everything about the place is a pleasure.
21st century bakeries
Do you like designer decor? Intriguing shapes and colours? An experimental approach? Then, you must not miss checking out the boulangeries Des Gâteaux et du Pain and Liberté. These two brands give pride of place to organic flour and artisanal ingredients to produce breads and gâteaux with unique flavours. At Des Gâteaux et du Pain you’ll experience the creativity of Claire Damon, the founder. Meanwhile, Liberté impresses with the way it has stripped away the barriers between the bakery and the sales area, so you can watch the breads, viennoiseries et pâtisseries being made while you shop...
Bakeries are an integral part of the identity of Paris. Savoury or sweet, a meal or a snack; everything you desire can be found in these artisan shops, each with its own personality. You’ll find one close to all the establishments of the Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle!
