  3. Pâtisserie Stohrer


Founded in 1730 by the former pastry chef of Versailles, Patisserie Stohrer is Paris' oldest and arguably tastiest pastry shop. Here you'll find a glistening array of delicacies such as Tarte aux fraises des bois (wild strawberry tart), Puit d'amour (lemon and saffron custard-filled pastry), and, the Stohrer specialty, Baba au Rhum (rum-soaked pastry). If you can tear your eyes away from the culinary goodies, spare a glance for the store's ceiling and wall panels: the elegant murals date back to the mid-19th Century. One can well understand why Queen Elizabeth II specially visited this shop in 2003; it's thoroughly sublime.
