Follow the advice of Julia Child and visit iconic patisserie Rollet Pradier. The stone building, with its large front windows filled with enticements, has been a part of the Seventh Arrondissement since 1859. The eatery has maintained its reputation for desserts such as the pain au chocolate and the blanc manger, a custard made from Bavarian almond milk and topped with fruit. More recent additions include 14 varieties of macarons, including poppy and pistachio flavors, all made by owner Jean-Marie Desfontaines' family recipe (her father invented the double-sided macaron in 1930).
