On my way home from Le Marais the other day I stumbled upon this super sweet little boutique. L’Éclair de Génie does éclairs like no one I’ve ever seen before. Aren’t they just adorable? They’re like small pieces of art and they have almost every flavour imaginable. Which flavour got to come home with me? I’ll show you later. And yes, they were unbelievable yummy.

    There is nothing quite so delicious as a French eclair. No one else seems to know how to properly make real custard for the filling.

    I love eclairs! Maybe we should go here next weekend instead??

    • Paris in Four Months

      Yes these were amazing but unfortunately they don’t have any places to sit down at I’m afraid :( And I think it would be too cold to eat them outside… What do you think?

  • Nicola in London

    Am I the only one that the ‘green slime’ appeals to?! Wonder what it is- Pistachio maybe? I am literally checking Eurostar because these photos have made me so hungry! Any excuse to visit Paris again…! :)

    • Paris in Four Months

      Haha! I have no idea actually. You really should!
