Jacques Genin

Top choice pastries in Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville

Wildly creative chocolatier Jacques Genin is famed for his flavoured caramels, pâtes de fruits (fruit jellies) and exquisitely embossed bonbons de chocolat (chocolate sweets). But what completely steals the show at his elegant chocolate showroom is the salon de dégustation (aka tearoom), where you can order a pot of outrageously thick hot chocolate and legendary Genin millefeuille, assembled to order.
