Gérard Mulot Pâtisserie

76 Rue de Seine, Paris , France, 75006

The Basics

As adept at traditional breads as it is delicate pastries, Gérard Mulot pâtisserie has long been celebrated for its flaky croissants, colorful macarons, perfectly crisp-chewy-tender baguettes, and other classically French delicacies. Founded by esteemed pastry chef Gérard Mulot in 1975, it has ranked among Paris’ top bakeries for decades. In 2016, pastry chef Fabien Rouillard took on the running of the house and renamed the bakery Maison Mulot. While most original recipes have been preserved, Rouillard’s new emphasis on seasonality has modernized the shop’s offerings.

In addition to its pastry counter, Maison Mulot’s terrace is also an elegant place to enjoy brunch, a range of savory dishes, cocktails, and other treats while soaking up the neighborhood’s romantic ambiance.
