When people think of Paris, they think of it as being the city of love. When I think of Paris, I think of it as being the city of CARBS. Oh yeaaah. Think of all the buttery croissants, flaky pastries, indulgent hot chocolates and creamy eclairs to name a few! I decided to put together all the sweet and carb-filled treats that I have tried during my trip to Paris, as well as some that I had saved on Instagram but never got round to trying!

1. The best pastries from Du Pains et des Idees
Come here for their escargot pistache et chocolat! It’s amazing!
2. LOTUS eclairs from Pain Pain
Try their LOTUS eclairs! So so good just look at all the lotus cream oozing out.
3. Cheesy pastries from PAIN PAIN
Gougère emmental et bleu is the name of the cheesy choux pastry you’re looking for! It’s fresh, warm and gooey.
4. THE BEST honey cake from Cafe Pouchkine
Cafe Pouchkine is such a cute little cafe and it’s definitely a must visit. Get their macarons and their honey cake. It honestly left us speechless as it’s that good.
5. Hot chocolate from Angelina
Angelina’s hot chocolate is the most indulgent thing you’ll ever see. It’s pretty much pure melted chocolate in a cup.
6. L’éclair de Génie
The fanciest eclairs in Paris! They have quite a few branches dotted around the city.
7. The cutest choux pastries from Odette
How cute are these? They look dangerously small and addictive!

Still one of my favourite sweet treats in Paris, the ridiculously good Croissant Ispahan from @pierrehermeofficial flavoured with rose, raspberry and lychee. The perfect thing for our last morning in Paris. #parispastry #ispahancroissant #ispahan #pierreherme #saintgermain #sweetparis #foodporn #foodphotography #theboywhobakes
