This is more than one of those favored neighborhood bakeries, this is a local Passy institution. Passy, of course, is that posh enclave of the already upper-crust 16th arrondissement, so you know that the clientele here is not just discerning but perhaps even a tad bit tough to please. So when you see lines out the door on Sunday mornings and people walking with their pretty little bow-tied boxes of cakes and pastries on the weekends as far as Trocad�ro and La Muette, you can be sure this is the best bakery within the immediate surroundings. It's also one of the few places in all of Paris where you'll find a type of baguette called Le Passy. It costs a few centimes more than the regular baguette but is worth its posh price.
- Boulangeries: "One of the specialties here is the Passy, a sort of baguette unique to this bakery in this neighborhood. It's a bit crispier on the outside a bit softer on the inside. In other words, most definitely one of the best baguettes in town."
- Best for Boulangeries Because: This is a terrific option where to buy your baguette or croissants and head over to Trocadéro to watch the sun rise over the city.
