Grand plans were laid out to visit some of the designer patisseries in Paris. But my pockets are only so deep. And I can only push the body so far towards diabetes.
So we ended up at two…
Pierre Hermes is a bit Soup Nazi… look, shuffle, order, move to the side to collect, pay and get out. Except the staff are friendly. Creations that are pretty, without being too intimidating to put in the mouth.
Now Hugo & Victor is in a different league.
Shhhhh quiet please. It’s feels more serious, like an art gallery with the goodies taunting you from behind the glass screens built into the wall. Taste as good as they look, which is pretty awesome.
4 / 5 yums!
Where? Pierre Hermes: 72 Rue Bonaparte, Paris; Hugo & Victor: 40 Boulevard Raspail, 75007 Paris, France
