I accidentally stumbled across this place whilst leaving Notre Dame! This trendy patisserie was all over Instagram before my trip so I recognised it immediately! It was tucked behind the iconic bookstore of Shakespeare and Co. in the heart of the Latin Quarter!
The cafe is furnished with antique furnitures & retro colours that would take you back in time! There is a lovely French music playing in the background giving a calming vibe to the property! After climbing a narrow staircase, you’ll find Odette’s upper floor with a picturesque window adorned with red flowers! As with me, I decided to be seated outside where the cute little tables and outdoor plants were.
Their menu is very very limited that they only offer one thing, the Choux à la crème: flavoured custard encased in a round ball of soft dough! During my visit there were 9 classic flavours offered: Chocolate, Vanilla, Coffee, Salted butter caramel, Praline, Raspberry, Lemon, Pistachio & Passion. It was so hard to choose which flavours to try so I just bought one of each! These freshly baked cream puffs have the perfect balance of crispness and smoothness! The sweet, creamy petite bundles of heaven just melted in my mouth! Simply delightful! I could have easily eaten a hundred of them! HAHAHA!
There is no shortage of Insta-Perfect Patisseries in Paris… so where do you start? Odette it is! It was such a fantastic little find and a definite stop whenever in Paris!
77 rue Galande
