In patisserie, precision, taste and presentation are key, and Carl Marletti is past master at creating beautiful delicacies for greedy aesthetes. He made his mark at the Grand Hôtel Intercontinental, then opened his own boutique at the end of 2007. His creations (around €5 a piece) are exquisite and brightly coloured, often classic pastries lifted by floral notes – like the ‘Lily Valley’, a violet-scented St. Honoré cake – in honour of his partner, a florist.
His lemon tart, was named the best in Paris in 2010 and is worth a visit in itself, as are his speciality vanilla millefeuilles. You can also order big cakes (Paris-Brest for four €22, Marie-Antoinette for 10 €65), including the signature dessert, the Marletti (dacquoise biscuit with coconut, vanilla cream and red fruits).

This is not a bakery, this is a 100% gourmet pastry shop with the prettiest desserts! If you get here early enough you will be blown away by the colorful display of eclairs, tarts, macarons and cream puffs! Last time I was here I had a delicious pastry in form of a milk chocolate mousse dome with a passion fruit purée core! Luckily I don't live close by, otherwise I would be here every day!
