Cédric Grolet, one of the best patissiers in the world, is located here in the heart of Paris. He offers one of the most luxurious and unique gastronomic experiences in the world of pastries.
You won’t find the stereotypical French pastries of macarons and madeleines at his shop located on rue de Castiglione. Grolet presents pastries that trick the eye into believing something that isn’t actually there. He specializes in the french art characteristic of trompe l’œil, an art technique that creates three dimensional optical illusions.
Grolet offers a select and limited amount of realistic fruit pastries each day–you never know which will be available until you arrive. These meticulous and decadent desserts have earned Grolet many titles over the years and has built himself a reputation as a gourmand connoisseur.
Grolet’s pastries are sought after all around the world–with hour-long lines around the block each day, it is recommended to make a reservation, however these reservations are normally booked months in advance. Grolet’s prices reflect his attention to detail and expertise, therefore be prepared to pay a considerable amount more than you would at a typical patisserie. Cliquez ici pour modifier un élément..
To maximize the luxurious experience, consider taking your sumptuous pastry across the street and enjoy the decadence in the Tuileries gardens. And if pastries aren’t your cup of tea, be sure to explore Grolet’s boulangerie on the avenue de l’Opéra where you can find more traditional baked goods that are still some of the most famous in Paris.
