Indulge in the delicious treats at Michel Chaudun, a renowned chocolate shop. Look for sculpted chocolate creations, including animals, purses, watches, and, of course, the Eiffel Tower. More traditional chocolates are available for those with simpler taste. The New York Times has called owner Michael Chaudun "wildly talented as an artist and chocolate sculptor." Consider trying the specialty chocolate paves or cubes of ganache dusted with cocoa powder. A visit to Michel Chaudun represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Paris tourist route planner to plot your vacation.

  • The shop has a nice artistic universe with its windows and its Chamber of curiosities filled with chocolate casts very amazing for some. Do not stop at delicious candy, chocolate, and be tempted by fruit pasta (delicious clementines and raspberries) and soft caramels.

  • The chocolates at Michel Chaudun were exquisite - can't wait to go back the next time I am in Paris!! 
  • Visually stunning chocolate that is artfully crafted into works of art. This small corner shop in the 7th arrondissement of Paris, is definitely worth a visit. It's magical shop where your eyes and stomach join in amazement and wonder ... and all that enter feel like a kid in a candy shop!
  • Life is like a box of chocolates. Michel Chaudun makes life more sweet and interesting with each piece. Perfect edible souvenir and/or gift for any occasion! The pavés are addicting and resemble the cobble stone streets of paris.
  • I visited seven chocolate shops on a "promenade du chocolat" that I mapped out for myself on a recent trip. Though far outside the awesome nexus of chocolate to the W of the Jardins du Luxembourg, this shop demands a visit. It's a marvelously old-fashioned curiosity shop / magic shop of sculpted chocolate, molded chocolate, the famous pavés (little perfect soft squares of dusted ganache) and marvelous bon bons. The service is impeccable but also friendly and genuine. Unpretentious even though it is such an exquisite place. I have been raving about it ever since and urging folks in person and online to go there to try the wonderful chocolates. Really superb and a memorable experience. Note that the pavés are more delicate and short-lived by all accounts. If you like pistachio and marzipan, you must get their pistachio marzipan chocolate. I'd get a whole box of those. What a treasure!!!!!
