Carton Boulagerie – handy spot for a baguette and a deliciously smooth chocolate filled éclair. This cute little shop (part of a small Paris chain) has amazing pastries and chocolates as well, but you had better be quick when ordering. The queue can be long, but very fast to so practice your French and be ready to speak up with your order.
The gal pals also like Carton Boulangerie macarons. I am told they taste as good as they look although I have not tried them there, yet. Self proclaimed chocoholic, I enjoy their straight forward sharp dark chocolates and creamy milk chocolates, but wouldn’t say they were the most special ones you can find in Europe. They do however, have lovely gift boxes of chocolatey treats if you feel the need to hand carry delicious treats back home.
Personally, I’ve tried to bring treats home, but resisting the smell for a nine-hour plus plane ride has proven too difficult a challenge pour moi. Frequently consumed by take-off, I find it’s just too depressing leaving Paris and a girl has to console her self somehow, n’est-ce pas?
