Gourmet sweet treats in a neighbourhood patisserie.

A pastry chef in the 18th arrondissement? You’d better believe it. The new pâtisserie from Yann Menguy is actually a little bit further than the Goutte d’Or, more like Lamarck-Caulaincourt, an area where residents aren’t really used to chic patisseries. Yet only a week after opening the customers already seem to know the menu off by heart. The open kitchen allows you to watch the young pâtissier, his arms heavily tattooed, as he fashions his little marvels. Six cakes are sold individually, in four or in six. There’s ‘La Goutte d’Or,’ a soft chocolate biscuit with crunchy, nutty buckwheat and silky chantilly cream (€5) or the lemon meringue and yuzu tart (€5.50) – both incredible. On the snack side, there’s salted caramel popcorn, mini raspberry brioche, vanilla feuilleté pastry (€1.80-2), chocolate-pecan cookies (€2), as well as fresh fruit juice or Lomi coffee (€1.80). An eat-in or takeaway breakfast menu is between €7.50 and €8.

These are gorgeous, well-priced cakes in a great spot. Yann Menguy’s only crime? That it isn't easier to get to.

OMG! So blown away by this beautiful, sleek bakery serving edible works of art! The interior is very minimalist and there are a limited amount of pastries on display each day, but they are all truly beautiful and incredibly tempting. I tried a cream puff filled with mango purée and topped with maple syrup cream and chocolate leaves: it was dreamy! The price (5.50 Euros for my giant cream puff) is reasonable and cheaper than Ladurée (which is so overrated)! They also had some pretty tasty looking chocolate chunk cookies! Will definitely be back soon, as it is in my neighbourhood it is just too hard to resist!
