This is one of those humble but popular, meaning by word-of-mouth popular, Paris bakeries. True, its location near the Centre Pompidou makes it ultimately convenient but also puts it smack in the middle of lots of competition. Fans of this bakery tend to like it either for their morning danishes and pastries which substitute chocolate chips for raisins or add pistachios where there were none. Or people like it for their lunch offerings. The noon day meal, when eaten on the run, is often grabbed at a bakery where sandwiches and quiches prevail. Here the sandwiches, and quiches, are made with a generous hand, so lots of fillings along with that good bread or crust.

- Boulangeries: "What they excel at here are the fresh twists on basic French morning pastries. Example: the traditional raisin roll is made with chocolate and pistachios. Their quiches, popular at midday, are full of the filling, meaning heavy on the chèvre cheese, the tomatoes, the bacon – all the good stuff."
- Best for Boulangeries Because: When you see a line out the door in the mornings and at midday, you start to understand why they call themselves "creators of pleasure."
