I vote for the tarte citron at Bonbonnerie de Buci, rue Buci, in the 6th. If I had to pick a favorite patisserie, that would be it.

Bonbonnerie de Buci

Our apartment was right around the corner from here, and we stopped in every day for our treat du jour. Yum!

Another vote for Gerard Mulot. We go by there on the day we are leaving and pick up a goodie for the plane. We may be crammed in with the hoi polloi but we are eating well!

I agree about Gerard Mulot. In addition to the pastries they have great quiche to take out.

Also love Le Notre - the napoleons were great). There's one on rue Cler plus other locations.

I like different patiseries for different things but my overall favorite is Secco which is also a fantastic boulangerie (Stéphane Secco (7th) 20 rue Jean Nicot)The pastries are less visually stunning than some, but the quality and taste (and price!)are much better, in my opinion, than the big names.

Impossible to choose just one favorite, but on my last trip I loved the one on the NW corner of rue St Martin and rue Rambuteau.

Andre Cleret in the 1st; 4, rue des Lavandieres-Sainte-Opportune. We happened upon this place many trips ago and found that after we had been there many times that Patricia Wells recommends it in her book, "Food Lovers Guide to Paris". Not only do they have delicious pastries, cookies, and breads, but they also have outstanding sandwiches.

I haven't found a patisserie in Paris that I didn't like. I was just in Paris the first week of June and I finally bought macaroons from Laduree on rue Bonaparte. I have always chosen eclairs over the macaroons, but this trip I fell totally in love with the chocolate ones. I tried the big ones and the small ones-the same and sooooo delicious. I bought macaroons EVERY day. God, I wish I had about 4 of them this very second.

Scatcat, have you had their sea salt ones? I too didn't try macarons for years because in those pastel colors they just didn't look much like food, but after reading all the rave reviews online, I finally had some last trip and became hooked.

Luckily, a cute new place called Macaron Cafe opened up in my own town just 1 block from my office, so now I can stop by there whenever I'm suffering from Paris-withdrawal.

I just had macaroons last night from the Maison Paul in my very own town right here in Florida. It was a lovely taste of Paris. However, the girl looked at me funny when I walked in and said, "Bon soir!"
