Not far from the Saint-Germain-en-Laye castle, which today houses the National Archaeology Museum, is the Pâtisserie Grandin, which is just as remarkable as its majestic neighbour! It has been a favourite of Saint-Germain residents since 1822, the year it was founded. Today, pastry chef Michel Pottier is dedicated to concocting nearly forty original (and mouth-watering) delicacies, each one more imaginative than the next. You can’t go wrong as you choose among a wide range of delectable desserts, including the mythical Saint-Germain, the Marly or the Debussy, as a tribute to the famous composer, born a few steps away!
Whether you prefer fruit, chocolate, whipped cream, almond cream or mousse, the Grandin pastry shop is the ideal place to take a little gourmet break after strolling through the magnificent historic centre of Saint-Germain, a royal town steeped in history.
