Finding a fresh croissant is one of the greatest pleasures in Paris. For some of the best and freshest croissants, check out Gontran Cherrier Boulangerie in Montmartre.
The artisan Gontran Cherrier himself has traveled the globe to study the best breads and flavors. He has brought the best home to Paris, as well as shops in Singapore and Tokyo.
Gontran Cherrier boulangeries (bakeries) uses real butter rather than margarine in their baking. This makes a delicious difference in the croissants, baguettes, pain au chocolate (a.k.a. chocolate croissants) and selection of pastries.
