Pastries in St-Germain & Les Invalides

Sweet-toothed gourmets won't do much better than a pit stop at the specialist boutique and salon de thé (tearoom) of chef-pâtissier Nicolas Haelewy. Exquisite rows of fresh, caramel-spiked cakes jostle for the limelight with caramel-laced chocolate bars, jars of caramel spread, and chewy bite-sized caramels flavoured with vanilla and fleur de sel (rock salt), passion fruit or rose and raspberry.
