ok, you didn't ask about ice cream, but here you go - Berthillion - Isle St. Louis - homemade there - you will NEVER have anything like it anywhere else!!!!!!

Ok - here are my favs...

Carton on Rue du Buci for bread - it's the only place with a line way out in the morning. Paul is new and touristy - Carton is where Parisians go!

Another vote for Gerard Mulot, for their chocolates! Great gifts to bring home (if you are willing to share)...

For wine bar - our favorite is Les Chais de l'Abbaye on Rue de Buci. Working class bar, but such great people watching, a decent selection of wine, and yummy snacks. We go there every night when in Paris before dinner for a drink.

Berthillion cannot be missed! I have gotten severe blisters walking in heels to Ile St. Louis after dinner, just to get an ice cream cone!

There's a little creperie stand on Rue Mazarine, south of intersection with Rue de Buci and Rue Dauphine...on the left side if you are walking south (towards St. Germain) - not the first, but the second stand you come upon. Order the toasted almond crepe (at night only, so the crepe is fresh)...it is a slice of heaven!

I've had breakfast and lunch several times at Paul's on the corner of Rue De Buci-good. Most times during the day there is a line going out the door for their great breads and rolls. At a window table you can enjoy the street market action on Rue De Buci.bonne chance.

You will love the Lutetia and the sixth (if you still intend to go after the recent events)--Poilane is a wonderful bakery around the corner--our favorite restaruants are L'epi dupin, Alcazar and Rotisserie D'en Face (all in the sixth.) Enjoy
