Though we travel the world to find the beautiful

we must carry it with us or we find it not

fit for a king ......

this wonderful old patisserie on Rue Montorgueil
was started way back in 1730 and is the
"oldest patisserie in Paris"
Nicolas Stohrer was official baker to the King Louis xv
now that's as good as it gets!!

 without a doubt I think the products here
are the finest in all of France
however you will need to take much cash
or a well loaded credit card!!
Don't forget to look up to admire the wonderful murals and frescoes
painted by the artist Paul-Jacques-Baudy
the same artist who painted the ceiling in the grand-foyer
of the Paris Opera House

What a delightful looking place!!! I would love to spend some time and money there -- although my scales might not be happy to have me stepping on them after such a sweet feast!! I do love the art work on the ceiling!! Hope you have a great week!!

Bonjour chère amie,

Je regarde vos photos comme lorsque j'étais enfant lorsque le dimanche je collais mon nez à la vitrine de la pâtisserie de mon village et admirais les gâteaux bien rangés qui étaient alors une véritable tentation !!

Nul doute que dans cet établissement les douceurs ne soient pas au goût du porte-monnaie ! Toutefois, il est bon de faire une toute petite entrave pour palier à la satisfaction !... ou alors je vous invite à déguster mes pâtisseries maison !...

Gros bisous ☼
