L’ÉCLAIR DE GÉNIE

Choux heaven - L’Éclair de Genie’s colours, toppings and artistic panache take patisserie to a new level. As one of the few specialist gourmet éclair purveyors in the city this neat little store focuses on creating some of the most tempting choux in town. Creative flavour combinations, quality execution and innovative branding have cemented its reputation among unforgiving Parisians and a trip here will give you a renewed appreciation of the humble éclair. The ice cream version is a quirky novelty and must be tried. Kids tend to towards the popcorn topped or shiny, brightly coloured ones of which there are many to choose from. Try the truffles and chocolates too which make excellent gifts for the sweet toothed. Situated close to the lovely Place Des Vosges select a few and savour them at leisure away from the city noise. Or on wetter days visit the cafe to indulge over coffee.
