This tiny pâtisserie / boulangerie near Bastille opens at 7am – before anything else comes alive on the street – perfect for those who crave freshly baked viennoiseries for breakfast. The croissants, in my opinion, are especially well-worth the trek.

The croissants (€1.10) at Blé Sucré are sweeter than the average, with a crunchy caramelized crust and a fluffy buttery core. One of my favorites in Paris.

Pain au chocolat (approx €1.30), also a good choice.

According to David Lebovitz, Blé Sucré makes the best madeleines (approx €3.6 for a bag of four) in Paris. I beg to differ as I prefer the ones at Pâtisserie des Rêves or Un Dimanche à Paris, but these freshly glazed little nuggets are indeed quite delicious. Why not grab a bag while you are there.

Tarte aux abricots (€2.60) was soggy by the time I got to it, and the apricots were super acidic for some reason.

Tarte aux peches (approx €2.40), nothing out of the ordinary, but comforting and satisfying.

Quiche lorraine (€3.30), slightly on the salty side but a tasty quiche nonetheless.

Need another reason to go? Very, very reasonable prices.
