Montparnasse

This will be the first time we stayed in Montparnasse, and from forum comments I think it was the right choice for many reasons. We booked the Hotel Delambre and would like to know if there are many bakeries or pastry shops close by.

To get you started: Colorova, on rue de l'Abbré Grégoire, about 500m North. They do a great brunch in particular. For more casual items, there are of course plenty of bakeries in the vicinity, as in any area of Paris (just type "boulangerie" on Google Maps).

Great area for food. I'm there at the moment and loving it. Also a very good area for metro/bus connections.

Good food at lots of places and a whole street of specialist crepe places.

we spent a couple of weeks in this area recently and found good boulangerie a bit scarce. Lots of restaurants (crepe restaurants right around the corner on Rue MOntparnasse) The Monoprix has a huge bakery -- one of the most elaborate MOnoprix for groceries I have seen with good butcher shop as well.

rue Delambre is lined with shops, and there is a pastry shop that sells fresh bread, too.

My personal fave in that area, where I too have stayed, is a bakery on nearby market street rue Daguerre - at 82 rue Daguerre - excellent baguette, jambon beurre (baguette sandwich with ham and butter), lemon eclairs...

Blvd Pasteur, the street south of the gare and complex, has several excellent boulangeries.

http://www.desgateauxetdupain.com/ is one of the best. The Guardian lists it among the 10 best in Paris, FWIW.

" The Monoprix has a huge bakery"

Which Monoprix would this one be please? The one on Rue de Rennes or Ave du General Leclerc?

Thank you.
