I posted this in another thread but worth repeating. We go to Paris in 3 weeks and I plan to eat and drink my way through every one of the shops! Have fun!

I just found a great book for shopping there. It's called "Gourmet Shops of Paris" by Pierre Ravel and Christian Sarramon. It has beautiful photos of all of the pastry, wine, chocolate, cheese and gourmet shops along with a guide in the back to get to all of their shops or websites. It got a great review in Food & Wine.

Our favorite bakery is Paul's, near the rue de Buci. Wonderful for breakfast. Also good is the nearby Kayser, said to have the best baguette in Paris.

Wonderful cheese shop on Rue de Seine, just off St. Germain, towards Buci. I have no idea of the name but you can't miss it!

And opposite Paul's on Buci is a bakery I like even better than Paul.

The people who run Fish (it's a restaurant) also have a wine store and tasting room nearby - can't remember the exact location, but just ask or call Fish when you get there. Excellent selection, no attitude, very helpful. Right near the places mentioned by the posters above.
