This elegant pastry shop, boulangerie and restaurant located just steps from the Assemblée Nationale, in one of the city’s poshest neighbourhoods, is a Paris institution.
Open in this location since 1859, Rollet-Pradier offers classic pastries and chocolates, as well as sandwiches and other light snacks.
On the upper floor there’s a tearoom, which also serves as a restaurant between noon and 2 p.m.
