Du Pain et des Idées

Top choice bakery in Montmartre & Northern Paris

This traditional bakery with an exquisite interior from 1889 is famed for its naturally leavened bread, orange-blossom brioche and flavoured escargots (scroll-like 'snails'; €3.60). Its mini savoury pavés (breads) flavoured with Reblochon cheese and fig, or goat's cheese, sesame and honey, are perfect for lunch on the run.

There's coffee to takeaway and a welcoming wooden picnic table considerately sits on the pavement outside.
