Le Moulin de la Vierge
Since 1356, the black varnished store front has borne the name Moulin de la Vierge in beautiful golden letters. This historic bakery with Art Nouveau décor delights the taste buds of all those who love farmhouse bread and the traditional Parisian baguette.
Pull up a chair at one of the tables while you enjoy a pastry and admire the setting. There is a lot to take in with the mouldings, the old cement square, the large mirrors, and the landscapes meticulously painted on ceramics. Behind the glass display cases, millefeuilles with raspberries, lemon tarts, and chocolate eclairs are carefully presented to customers. The various farmhouse breads–both in batons and round loaves–are elegantly aligned to showcase this house speciality.
All of the bread is organic and is lovingly baked in a wood-fired oven using a traditional method. Patience and expertise are the key ingredients for baking the signature “Paresseuse” baguette that made the Moulin de la Vierge famous.
