Simon Food Favourites

i wish i was going to Paris to try all these places. i look forward to seeing your post of them all and letting us know which is the best of the best :-)


Thank you Simon, will most definitely be blogging about these places, salivating at the mere thought of it!


Les deux! Depending on the mood. We often stay in the 6eme so next time I must try Pierre Herme's pain au chocolat, among his other goodies!


Miam miam! je vais tester celles que je ne connais pas encore. Et pour joindre l'agréable au sublime, n'oublions pas que Stohrer est la plus ancienne patisserie de Paris (1730) et aussi réputée pour ses "puits d'amour", des gâteaux qui sont des péchés à eux seuls ...
from Paris with ... sugar!


Team Pain au Chocolat :-)
Although being on Team Celery would be a bit better maybe, life's too short!

Do you know any places in SYdney where I can find good ones?


This is going to come in handy Myriam! Thanks for sharing. I think I could scarf down 10 pain au chocolats in one go.


Gourmantic > I'm with you here, there's nothing like the 6eme, it's one of my favourite places to live in Paris! We used to live rue du Four with my boyfriend, just a stroll away from Pierre Herme and Gerard Mulot, mhhh...

MariT > Dis donc, je ne savais pas que Stohrer est la plus ancienne patisserie de Paris?? Je n'y suis meme jamais allee, je crois. Encore un truc a rajouter sur ma liste des trucs a faire lors de mon prochain passage a Paris dans J - 2 mois, woo hoo!

Ge > I'm team pain au chocolat as well, but thank God I don't live in Paris any more as they're a killer for your waistline!! In Sydney, you'd probably find good pains au chocolats at La Renaissance French Cafe in The Rocks, at Victoire (French bakery in Balmain, on Darling St) and at La Gerbe D'Or, another French bakery in Five Ways, Paddington.

Trissa > Thank you Trissa! I have to say, I'm super jealous that you get to go to Paris in April!! All these bistrots and patisseries you'll be able to visit, yum... As promised, I'll email you some of my suggestions, really looking forward to your thoughts on some of these place ;-)


Les deux aussi.

One of joys of visiting my sister in Paris is nipping across rue Jean Jaures to buy the morning croissants, pains au chocolat and baguettes for the family.

Aah can smell them now...

Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

Ooh team Croissant for me most definitely! I am an addict for them. Is it wrong that I sometimes spread more butter on them?
