La Pâtisserie Stohrer, rue Montorgueil…
The Figaroscope has ranked them as having the best chocolate eclairs in all of Paris! When you pass the patisserie Stohrer, you will find yourself overwhelmed with a sole desire to step inside. Give in to temptation!
Stohrer has a rich history, dating back to 1725 when Mary Leczynska, daughter of King Stanislas of Poland, came to Paris for the occasion of her marriage with Louis XV with her father’s pastry chef, Mr. Stohrer.
Five years later, he settled down on rue Montorgueil where he opened a bakery whose specialty would become its “babas” and “puits d’amour” (“well of love”). By 1864, the shop was decorated by the painter Paul Baudry (1828-1886), who had recently attained celebrity status for his decor at the Hôtel Galliera and the foyer at l’Opéra.
The late eighteenth century building possesses a curious figure above its door: a globe surrounded by symbols of arts and letters.
