This shop made me so happy even by only looking it from the outside and inside I got completely crazy! You have a choice of chocolates, macarons and kouignettes with so many different flavours! It is a great place and it is very reasonably priced in comparison with other central parts of Paris. The pumkin spice macaron was sooooooo goood!

We ad dinner at a nearby restuarnat and decided to go into this place for a look and of course we purchased sweets! They are big on "merinque" here but I wanted macaron! Their lemon on was very good. I am told the chocolates were also very good!

I wandered into this shop because I couldn't resist the lovely treats on display. I came away with macarons. Lovely, yummy, macarons. I had previously been to Laduree and was appalled by the pricing. Here however, I could go crazy, even on a budget. I got lemon macarons, raspberry macarons and a pastry I cannot remember the name of (armin?)... More

These small pastry shops are packed with deliciousness. I had never heard of a Kouign Amman until I went to Paris. The staff was helpful and friendly. Plenty of chocolate choices and the self-serve made for fun casual browsing for a non-French speaker.

In Paris, there are infinite options for chocolatiers and patisseries. It's almost impossible to say who is best. Usually, the first one you fall in love with is the best one. I fell for the Kouign Amann of Larnicol. Now Larnicol sells a lot of things: chocolates, pates, caramels, etc. I come here for 3 things: the Nature, chocolat, amande... More

This stop was recommended on a few blogs so we decided to stop and check it out. The artistry of their chocolates blew us away! We grabbed a few pastries, chocolates and caramels to enjoy during our trip and really enjoyed them all.

I love that this is a self-serve high end chocolate shop. You can pick up a box and fill it with what you like for a great value. All the dark chocolate was divine. I had a box for snacks on the plane ride home.

I found this place on a previous trip to Paris in the Latin Quarters and love it. We made sure we went back again for the Macarons. The salted caramel is incredible. My friend also loves the containers of caramel that are sold there. Such a variety and staff was helpful and friendly.

Georges Larnicol is by far my favorite chocolatier in Paris. While the Saint Germain is an excellent location for chocolate overall, Georges Larnicol remains less stuffy but better quality than many of its neighbors. In particular, I recommend buying chocolate by weight from the large bins, especially the many different pralines.

Just watch the best designs made with chocolate and enjoy them, chocolate is tasty but kind of expensive to buy a show made out of chocolate as you will not be able to eat it later on :)
