4 Place du Trocadéro, Paris, 75016, France

The Place du Trocadéro, strategic for its view of the Eiffel Tower, has a multitude of café terraces from which to admire it, but only one is an institution. Despite several months of renovations, the 80-year-old salon de thé and patisserie has avoided the predominantly trendy vibe and emerged with its old-world ambience intact—Art Deco signage, gilded mirrors, and Poitoux bentwood and rattan chairs. Its éclair au chocolat was voted best in the city in 2007, and although Paris is rife with more well known purveyors of macaroons, to bite into a délice des framboises is to understand why this place remains a favorite among famously low-key habitués such as Philippe Starck.
