Sweet or salty, the French crepes are one of the most magic results you can get by mixing eggs, flour, milk and butter. Crepes can be personalized to adapt to any kind of tastes, from French cheese to walnuts and honey. My favourite one? Hazelnut chocolate cream, with a huge ball of vanilla ice-cream on the top…Try it in one of the many cozy crêperie shops of the Framboise distributed in town.

If there is something that can best identify the French patisserie, that’s the macaron. A super tasty cream, enclosed between two small circle layers of soft biscuits, that can turn any day into the best day ever. Ladurée, with more than 12 boutiques in Paris and its surroundings, is one of the best places to enjoy a break tasting all its flavours.

Featured in the Michelin Guide, La Fontaine de Mars is one of the best places in Paris to taste a crème brûlée.
