29 Best Boulangeries in Paris

In Paris, France, boulangeries (or bread bakeries) are famous for their expertise in the art of making bread. The French consume bread on a daily basis. You can find a boulangerie on almost every street in Paris and certainly in every neighborhood! Boulangeries produce many kinds of bread, perfect sandwiches, sweet pastries, and quick bites – not just the worldwide renowned baguette.

Wondering what to order at a boulangerie? You can’t go wrong, but I recommend getting a baguette tradition, or a simple butter croissant. The savoir-faire of making fresh baguettes and croissants has been honed for several decades and the French have not lost their touch. Throughout the years, they have learned many different recipes for certain types of bread.

Take some time to visit some of these amazing boulangeries in Paris. I’m sure that one will become your new favorite!
