A la Mère de Famille
Mint green woodwork, marble panels and large gold letters typical of the Belle Époque: the shop’s facade could be used as a backdrop to a movie!
Push the door open and tread on the tile floor that has been aged by generations of gourmands. Like them, you will be unable to resist the extremely enticing glass displays, which abound with the classics of French confectionery – far, far from contemporary mass production.
Roudoudoux and marshmallows from Grandma’s era, calissons and orangettes from Provence, marzipan in the shape of small animals (mice, turtles, etc.) so cute you might not even want to eat them… Not to mention a whole range of chocolates and pralines shaped according to the rules of the art, like the feuilletine truffles, almond snack bars, dried fruit mendiants and chocolate praliné bars.
Here, feasting is like child’s play! Note that the store now has a dozen branches throughout Paris.
Discover the musée Grévin just a few steps away from the Faubourg Montmartre shop!
