Phoenix in Paris

Pain au chocolat – Boulangerie Thevenin (6th arrondissement)


It’s hard to go wrong with breads/pastries/viennoiseries in Paris (it’s like pizza: even if you get a bad one, it’s still decent), but Boulangerie Thevenin is my current neighborhood favorite for pain au chocolat.  One HUGE flaky, buttery, chocolaty treat will run you 1,25 € – the best bang for your buck I’ve seen in the area.

Conveniently located by the Saint-Placide metro (line 4) in the 6th arrondissement, it’s a great place to stop for a treat before visiting the Jardin du Luxembourg or wandering around Montparnasse 🙂
