We had the good fortune to rent an apartment down the street from this wonderful patisserie. We sent an envoy out every morning for pastries or quiche for breakfast. We did not try the cakes or tarts, but they looked amazing.

We lost ourselves in this small patisserie. Macorons, tartes, cakes, croissants. All with a great taste. Do not leave without trying "Cœur Frivole", best best best!

Stopped by for an afternoon pick me up. Great selection of takeout food items that all looked great. Went for sweets. Cafe eclair was great. Rich coffee taste without being overly sweet. All sweets looked top notch.

Even though Gerard Mulot is expensive, it worths it ! The staff is friendly and helpful, they have a lot of choice. The macarons are out standing (my favorite) and better than La Durée / Pierre Hermé according to me. We're ordering cakes for all of our family events. Please try go, you won't regret it!

One of the best patisseries in Paris. "Vrai beurre croissants" are a must. You can buy the normal croissants, which are nice, but the ones made with real butter are absolutely amazing. Also prepared food to take home.

On a recent trip to Paris we stopped into Gerard Mulot based on an Andrew Zimmern TV segment that recently aired. While that segment touted the laurels of Mulot's croissants, we had our eyes on the dark chocolate tart as the eclairs. We bough both, sat inside the store at a stool and savored every bite. On the day we... More

I came here to buy macarons based on great reviews but was sadly disappointed. Although the macarons looked beautiful, both the flavour and the texture of the macarons were average and some flavours were just way too sweet! I felt like i needed a huge glass of water everytime i ate one.

Simply the best patisserie in the known universe. Amazing desserts of all kinds, and each one a delicate work of art in itself. A must-see on your trip to Paris, and nestled in the most historic section of Paris, surrounded by shops and restaurants you won't believe!

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
