Have a sweet tooth? Welcome to your new favorite city, Paris. From drinks to pastries, there is something for everyone. The Parisians know how to best indulge in the finer things in life, especially when it comes to food. When I was there this last week I found myself returning back to the same eclair shop for a new flavor – I may have developed a slight addiction. Let’s just say the possibilities are endless when we’re talking about sweets in Paris.

Next time you find yourself in Paris, these are the top treats to try..

1. L’éclair de Génie
These are a must and my current obsession. Let’s just say when I was there for a week, I had one every single day – yes every single day. The colorful, flavor packed, inventive éclairs from Génie are insanely good. Plus what’s more classic then a French éclair?

2. Ladurée
Besides the typical Instagram photo of a box of macarons, they are quite delicious. The cassis and caramel are the best. If you find a bit of time to sit down, head to their salon de thé and do a proper tea and dessert tasting. The Ladurée macarons will not disappoint.

3. Odette 
The infamous “choux” or as we know them better, the French cream puff. Tasty little treats and easy to eat a lot!

4. Angelina
This is one of the best hot chocolates in town, hands down. On the go or even a sitting here is a perfect way to spend an afternoon indulging in an amazing hot chocolate and some pastries.

5. Jacques Genin
Welcome to who was formerly the best pastry chef in Paris, now the connoisseur of caramel. Yes caramel, everything caramel. They are ridiculous and a personal favorite of my husband.

6. Café Saint-Régis
This is my favorite cafe for an afternoon coffee – plus after all of the sweets, a little caffeine may be needed.

7. Amorino
Flower shaped gelato, must I say more? This is by far the best gelato in town and flavors to die for. I love the flavors like cassis, raspberry, and chocolate.


Bon travels, Xx

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!

These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.

1. Book Your Flights

Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.

2. Book Your Accommodations

Use for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.

3. Book Your Tours & Experiences

Use Viator or Get Your Guide to find the best tours and experiences. They are my favorite tour search engines. I always check both as their inventory varies depending on the destination.

4. Book Your Car

Use Discover Cars or to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.

5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access

Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.

6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance

I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.

My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
