Pain d'Epis remains true to its name, which means wheat stalk bread. This archetypal Parisian boulangerie is a mainstay on Avenue Bosquet, where owner and head baker Thierry Dubois turns out fresh loaves, croissants, and ficelles (thin baguettes), each of which is made with a special mixed-flour dough. This relatively small bakery near the Eiffel Tower produces artisan loaves like fougasse (bread baked with olive oil and various fillings), a specialty which draws well-heeled Parisians and tourists alike to its peachy-pink storefront.
Pain d'Epis is just around the corner from market-laden Rue Cler, where you can pick up meats, cheeses, and fruit for a picnic in front of the nearby Eiffel Tower.
