Our top five
Magnificient, glistening pastry…with an inside that's just as good as the outside. This airy croissant has stolen our hearts with its regal balance of good quality butter and sublime flavour.
Where? Des Gâteaux et du Pain, 63 boulevard Pasteur, Paris 15eme (or 89 rue du Bac, Paris 7eme)
The right side of flaky, the shiny pastry smells heavily of butter and may require a good hand-wash after eating. Just the way we like it.
Where? Boulangerie Pichard, 88 rue Cambronne, Paris 15eme
With a slightly rustic, rugged look, this beautiful (and hefty) croissant melts in the mouth. This is the sort of breakfast we’d want every Sunday. Or rather, every day.
Where? Laurent Duchêne, 2 rue Wurtz, Paris 13eme (or 238 rue de La Convention, Paris 15eme)
Don’t let the unusual shape put you off, the pastry is beautifully delicate. It could do with being a little softer but it's still firmly in our top five.
Where? Boulangerie Terroir d'avenir, 1 rue du Nil, Paris 2eme
