10 Sweet Treats to Eat While Visiting PARIS

Paris is sweet on the eye, sweet on the romance, and sweet on the palate. It is a sugar lover's dream, and the only problem you'll have with the delectable French desserts is which one to choose.


To help you navigate that yummy last course, we've broken down the top 10 must-try desserts for your visit to France.


And, if you have to eat more than one a day to get through them? Well, c'est la vie!




  1. The Tartes Aux Fruits – These tartes aux fruits are prepared with fresh fruit inside a buttery pastry. The fruit sits atop a heavenly Chantilly cream. You can enjoy these tartes in miniature and pie sizes.

  2. The Éclair – The éclair is a popular dessert in Paris. The long French choux pastry can be filled with rich custard or pastry cream and topped with sweet fondant. By definition, the term éclair means lightning in French. Go figure!

  3. The Paris Brest – This pastry was created in 1891 to celebrate the Paris to Brest bicycle ride. It's circular and contains praline-flavored crème and choux pastry.

  4. Macarons are undeniably delectable, and there are so many flavors to choose from. The base ingredients include meringue and almonds. Be sure not to confuse them with coconut macaroons, in which the English added the -oon to the word in the 16th century.

  5. Tarte au Citron, also known as lemon tart, is very popular. It has a pastry crust and delicious lemon filling. The filling, however, is not made with fruit. The cream is a mixture containing lemon juice, lemon zest, and, of course, eggs and sugar.

  6. This fluffy treat comes in a vanilla or custard slice and consists of several layers of puff pastry. Between the puff pastry lies an additional two layers of pastry crème. Another name for the mille-feuille is Napoleon.

  7. Named after the hotel that serves the dessert (Hotel Tatin), the tarte Tatin is a unique upside-down pastry. Its ingredients include caramelized fruit prepared with sugar and butter. It pairs famously with a bit of tart crème Fraiche.

  8. These cream puffs are also made using puff pastry. They swell while cooking and are hollow. The oozing center can be either whipped cream or custard. Interestingly enough, once you add chocolate as your topping, it becomes a profiterole. You can add various toppings to this pastry, from ice cream to fruit and even spun caramel.

  9. This buttery, flaky wonder is a signature French pastry. You can top it with fruit, chocolate, fondant, or a compote of your choosing. You will not be disappointed.

  10. Translated, petit four means small oven and is also known as mignardises. The fours are little bite-sized pastries that can also be savory. The sweet option includes a sugary glaze atop a crispy biscuit. These pastries are perfect for tea parties.
