People can't seem to say enough good things about Philippe Gosselin's baguettes. The gifted baker takes special care to make each loaf perfect, and the same attention goes to his rye and white breads too. If you require a sweet fix, Gosselin offers a selection of chocolate and fruit cakes that is simply mouthwatering. Their recipes are all family ones and the artistry of bread baking is one that has been passed down from father to son over the years. Also, in the winter they offer deliciously warming homemade soups, too. For dessert indulge in their proprietary cake, the L'Eventail. It's an almond flour cake with cherries and a vanilla-cherry meringue on top, garnished with fresh strawberries. It almost looks to good to eat, until you bite into it, that is.

- Boulangeries: "This is the place to indulge in a baguette...or half a dozen. In recent years, twice Gosselin has pulled in the distinction of the top five baguettes in Paris, in the citywide competition held each year to designate Paris' best baguette."
- Best for Boulangeries Because: Their beautiful storefront on the Boulevard Saint Germain belies an artisan boulanger inside, whose baguettes, warm and crusty, satisfy that bread craving to a tee.
