18th Arrondissement (Pigalle)

Arnaud Delmontel


57 Rue Damrémont,


The 2007 winner of the Grand Prix de la Baguette de Tradition Française de la Ville de Paris (the best baguette in Paris contest), Arnaud Delmontel’s namesake boulangerie (bakery) frequently has a line of customers extending out the front door. Inside this corner shop—one of Delmontel's three Paris locations—glass display cases are filled with freshly baked bread, fruit-filled croissants, and sweets such as orange vanilla gingerbread. Besides the crisp baguette, the bakery’s signature items include the almond croissant and colorful macarons (meringue-based cookie sandwiches filled with buttercream), available in flavors like champagne, rose, salted caramel, and passion fruit.
