Eric Kayser Boulangerie Patisserie Paris


I had the good fortune of staying at a hotel in Paris near Place Vendome that was around the corner from an Eric Kayser Bakery.  Needless to say, I went there almost every morning for breakfast.  They make great baguettes, a traditional one as well as a delicious seeded one (baguette cereale).  There is something about baguettes in France – crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside – that is difficult to find in the US.  They also had great croissants, pain aux raisins that was flaky and had a sweet custard, delicious mini financiers (I ended up bringing two bags back to the US), brioche, and assorted pastries.  There are mini versions of some of the croissants for only 0,65 euros.  They serve coffee and there is a small seating area.  The service was very nice and one morning they even gave us a plate of assorted mini financiers.  There is a 7 euro minimum for credit cards (easy, just buy another pastry if you are short!).  They also have items to take away for lunch, including sandwiches, salads, and quiche.  A great way to prepare for a picnic lunch at Versailles or wherever you might go in Paris.
