We have visited randomly this place for a breakfast and came back there for a few times just to eat so good patisserie and boulangerie. Honestly the prices are moderate. Especially they have good offer: caffè with croissant for 2.2 € apx. The most expensive was citron cake for 3.5 €. But it's a really good quality and taste. Also... More

The bread was out of this world! We had white chocolate, fig, olive, and just plain baguettes. It was all good! I filled up on bread so I did not try any if the desserts. Try this place!

I always venture to Eric Kayser for the baguettes, the whole grain breads, and one or two of the vast assortment of sweets. Irrespective of where I am staying in Paris, I usually visit the branch on Rue Monge, not least because of other food attractions nearby (Maubert-Mutualite outdoor market, Laurent Dubois' fine cheese shop, and an excellent fresh fish...

Visited this bakery which was just around the corner from the hotel we were staying at. They serve simply the best pastries and desserts you could imagine!!! We were absolutely amazed every thing we tried was perfect: Croissants, Quiche, Tarts and the pièce de résistance their creme brûlée!!! The prices were quite reasonable as well! Looking forward to visiting again... More

Skip the hotel breakfast and go here. Casual with the excellent coffee and croissant. I also stopped by for a ham sandwich on baguette to go. This is a busy place. Go early or at off hours.

Very nice place to have a cup of tea or coffee. Of course with some dessert. Brilliant place to go alone or with someone.

My husband and I did a side-by-side taste comparison of tradie baguettes between Eric Kayser and La Parisienne. Both tradies were purchased at 7am, so they were super-fresh and hot from the oven. The La Parisienne tradie had a slightly more salty taste and a thicker crust, but the Kayser crust was crunchier. It's all about personal preference, but I'll... More

Kayser is probably among the best bakeries in Paris. The items I personally tried were superb. The butter croissants are so perfect and flaky, and the Gallette du roi is amazing as well. Anyone who happens to be nearby should definitely come here for great pastries.

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
