For 40+ years Chef Patissier Gerard Mulot got up and made the day's pastries all from scratch here at this location. Late in 2016 he decided to retire and handed these tight, successful reins to the young Fabien Rouillard, also a Chef Patissier. Gerard Mulot Patisserie is a Left Bank institution. At Christmastime people line up around the block to pick up their Christmas cakes in time for the holiday dinner. Here you won't find innovation so much as classic interpretation of the classics. Like your Baba au Rhum just so? Here is where the recipe will not have changed since your grandparents started coming here. The pastry shop's signature pastry is called the Amaryllis, named after the flower. What's even nicer is that in time for summer they have launched their ice creams and sorbets - for takeaway. Their tea salon is also just a few doors away.
- Patisseries: "Generations of Left Bank Parisians have been coming to this pastry shop and hence they remain loyal to their childhood memories of flavors. The Kugelhoff is one of the house specialties as well as the Amaryllis, the fine pastry. Under new pastry chef reigns, the promise has been made that things(flavors) will not deviate from your childhood memories."
- Best for Patisseries Because: There is also a selection of savory items - the perfect stop for a picnic in the nearby Luxembourg gardens.
