…from Du Pain et des Idées for instance, a quite famous bakery at the crossing of Rue de Marseille and Rue Yves Toudic, only a stone’s throw from Place de la République. I didn’t know it, actually, I just walked by the other day and the beautiful things on display caught my attention. Have a look:
That looks promising, doesn’t it? Strange discs and special snakes and snails and rolls. And it gets even better when you enter the boutique. There’s original breads and surprising cuts, so this guy is doing it his way.
When I checked the address and stuff, I found out that many people think that this was THE best boulangerie of Paris. You can find hymns (posted by Americans especially) and the Gault Millau has awarded prices to the baker. Well, I’m pretty sceptical about this kind of superlatives and rankings. The best bakery in Paris? Forget it. There’s hundreds of them – and they’re all pretty good and dozens of them are so fantastic that you can hardly believe it. But still: This one, in Rue Yves Toudic, is a very, very nice one and really worth a visit.
