A real institution in western Paris since 1984, the boutique located on rue Poncelet, offers a wide selection of cheeses and high quality extra-fresh products (butter, eggs, raw cream, cottage cheeses, yoghurts, mozzarella, etc...) in a light wood setting designed by the Italian Creative Laboratory AMlab.
He has created a real brand : the pastry chef Yann Couvreur does not hesitate to call on designers, such as Sébastien Servaire to draw his Christmas log. In his boutiques, depending on the day, you can taste compositions “à la minute” in daring superimpositions of textures and flavours. Opening in 2016, his first boutique on Avenue Parmentier offers “pastry runaways” starting at 12 noon.
Wellbeing and pleasure are the watchwords that Nathaniel Doboin and Thomas Teffri-Cham- belland kept in the forefront of their minds when they created the rst entirely natural gluten free bakery in Paris.

With a past that included being head pastry chef for the Grande Épicerie de Paris, at the Costes groupe and for Hélène Darroze’s restaurants, Benoît Castel has branched out on his own with a pair of bakeries-patisseries (the other is in Menilmontant). The bright, modern boutique on the rue des Vinaigriers was designed by Mur.Mur. and includes a gargantuan marble counter, neon lights and the original painted glass ceiling that has been restored.
The concept behind 60 faubourg Poisson- nière, Christophe Michalak’s cusine masterclass school, has evolved: not only an extra classroom has been added but the Take away has turned into a veritable patisserie, resulting in a greater variety of cakes on offer.
Cyril Lignac, together with his associate Benoit Couvrand since the creation of La Pâtis- serie in 2011 and aided by the creative agency BE-POLES, opens a space entirely devoted to chocolate. At number 25 Rue de Chanzy in the 11th arrondissement, a vast array of chocolate temptations will satisfy every cacao desire of in- veterate as well as novice chocolate lovers, to be sampled on the premises at a big communal table or taken home for those in a hurry.
