Food & Drink
Give in to your sweet tooth at Popelini where the "choux pastry," or puff pastry, was invented. Popelini, a Parisian pastry chef, came up with this delightful cake. Admire the colorful display of pastries and choose from flavors ranging from pistachio to passion fruit. You can eat in the store or buy a few delights to take with you, and they even supply dinner party presentations. Much of the business coming here from tourists is due to word of mouth, so this very Parisian boutique bakery doesn't feel overrun.

  • Absolutely the best treat we had in Paris--SO much better than the ubiquitous macarons! Bite-sized creme puffs that explode with balanced not-too-sweet flavor! You must seek these out and try for your...  more »
  • These little cream puffs are full of flavor. Even my husband, who doesn't really care for this kind of sweet, loved them. Very friendly staff as well.  more »
  • I had read about Popelini before I visited Paris so you can imagine my delight when I walked past this shop a few hundred metres from where we were staying in Le Marais District. 10 out of 10 from me....  more »

  • Well, they grabbed our attention with this cheeky window decoration. Inside, it turned out, they were offering delicious choux puffs, all with delightful flavoured fillings. We went for passion fruit, and salted caramel, and ate on a bench nearby. Just marvellous.
  • ABSOLUTELY DIVINE! Perfect consistency in every way
  • 2 favourites were rose and raspberry flavour, and salted caramel flavour. So much flavour in such a small object! Well worth getting a few to eat by yourself. Be careful with the box when taking them away as they can move in transit and stick to each other which can mix up the flavours a little.
  • It's cute but ... It was OK. It was average.
  • I promise you that you cannot make a wrong decision in this store! We came to try one or two but could not decide on flavors. We ended up buying one of each, and they were all delicious. This is definitely a nice treat but pricier than expected.
