La Maison du Chocolat has seven Paris locations and an international as well as Internet presence. This particular shop is on the Boulevard de la Madeleine, a prime location.
Sprinkled throughout Paris are four of our favorite pleasure spots: les pâtisseries, les boulangeries, les salons de thé and les chocolatiers. If you aren’t including an ad hoc culinary tour as part of your Parisian experience, you are missing a huge portion of the delights of the city. You will not find anything like this if you were to use CheapCaribbean promo codes so enjoy it while you can. Once you’re in a tropical resort, it’s an entirely different culinary scene.
Les chocolatiers, as above, create luscious chocolate confections. And you may enjoy a lovely cup of tea with a pastry, a croissant or a truffle in a salon de thé.
Les pâtisseries are shops specializing in–you guessed it–pastries. Don’t think American bakeries as the French versions rise to an art form all their own. All of your senses will be sorely tempted by the pleasures on display.
Les boulangeries form and bake wondrously flavorful breads in all shapes and sizes. The older sites often still bake in very old, wood-fired ovens.
Here we have a chocolatier called The House of Chocolate, dressed in the color of chocolate and advertising The Night of Cake. Let us see–we’ll bet chocolate cake!
As you amble throughout the city, you are able to whet your sweet tooth as you happen upon a chocolatier or a pâtisserie, if that is your preference. These do not always have seating for a moment’s rest and a drink, but a salon de thé will surely enable you to sit for a spell to savor the tastes, smells and ambience of the city.
Don’t be afraid to try any shop you happen upon, be it a mom-and-pop or a small chain like this. It is difficult to be disappointed when sampling the culinary delights of Paris.
