Let them eat cake…from Bontemps!
Sometimes you stumble across something so charming and so quaint in Paris that it makes you realize why you love this city so much. Bontemps patisserie is one of them. This small, jewelry box-like pastry haven is probably the sweetest place in the Marais if not Paris. Their signature buttery petit sablés that come in various mouth-watering flavours like lemon, passionfruit, hazelnut and coconut, are to die for. And there’s also a tangy tarte au citron and other exquisite ‘works of art’ that will delight the senses.
And with everything served on floral gold trimmed bone china at peppermint-green tables in a romantic courtyard, you feel like Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory all in one. Not a sweet tooth? They also offer delicious charcuterie too. Brunch, lunch served. Go. All your expectations will be exceeded.
