One of the very best chocolatier in Paris. Debauve & Gallais has a classic (and classy) style. No fancy mixtures, and yes less creative than Patrick Roger or Hermé, but chocolate is of true highest quality. Excellent pralinés too, usually not too sweet. A must.

The ambiance and service equate to elegance, not snobbery. The delay in my writing this review is due to the fact that I did not taste any of my chocolates until returning to America. As one reviewer wrote I just happen to be strolling along...More

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
