Rue Caulaincourt is one of our favorite streets in Paris. Other than holding some precious memories for us, we love this beautiful, curvy, tree-lined Parisien street. It just has that “je ne sais quoi” about it. And even better, Gontran Cherrier decided to open up his first boulangerie right here on Caulaincourt.
There may be a line but don’t worry, the sights and smells from this tiny corner shop will ease the pain of queuing. They offer a daily formule menu with a "p'tit dejuner" or you can order a la carte (ie everything your heart desires). Our recommendation? Go for a croissant, a kouignamman, and one of Gontran Cherrier's famous breads. And don’t forget coffee. Always coffee. (ps. we will be swinging by another famous boulangerie later in the day so this could be a fun time to take note of which baguette and croissant you think is best!)
(Pst. When you leave the boulangerie, you can catch a tiny glimpse of the Eiffel Tower when you face the direction of the cemetery!)
