Arnaud Delmontel is as much a baker as a pâtissier. Visit his semi-legendary shop on Rue des Martyrs, and you’re just as likely to end up buying a crispy baguette – voted the best in Paris in 2007 – as one of his famous cakes. The La Renaissance baguette (€1.15) is the star of the show, but you’re well advised to try the honeyed rye bread and the truffle breadsticks as well. If you can’t make it over to the flagship bakery, Delmontel has two other branches (notably in the 18th).
