In Paris, where corner mom-and-pop shops jockey for space with temples of haute-pâtisserie, pastry is part of everyday life—it isn't uncommon to see lines of Parisians picking up fresh tartes for Sunday brunch with the family, or schoolchildren racing to their favorite bakery for a goûter. Pastries are sold at pâtisseries — shops dedicated specifically to sweet baked goods made with dough, as opposed to breads, which are sold at boulangeries. Some shops offer both bread and pastry, but don't necessarily rely on being able to pick up a great baguette along with your palmiers, or vice versa.
The city is thick with pastry shops, and competition among them is fierce, but these ten pâtisseries are among the greatest that Paris—and therefore the world—has to offer.
