Gerard Mulot Patisserie
Skip the beautiful tarts, the crusty croissants and the pastel macaroons and head straight for the cherry clafouti. If you’re unfamiliar, clafouti is a traditional French dessert of black cherries in a thick cake-custard batter. It’s the perfect combination of flavors, a slightly sweet base with jewel-like tart cherries poking through. Gerard Mulot perfects the clafouti, and serves it up from large rectangular sheets, where you can request a little square or a larger one to share. Bring your pink pastry box to nearby Luxembourg Gardens for an excellent mid-morning treat. See our complete guide to Paris Daytime Eats: Top 7 Under $7.
Cherry clafouti. It’s perfect.
($$) Pricey but worth it! A small square (priced by the kilo) will run you a few euros
