The gourmet grocery shop at #30 sells a wide range of delectable items produced by the brand, including chocolates and truffles, artisanal candy and confectionary, madeleines, macarons, and cakes, a range of black, green and herbal teas, sweet and savory biscuits and crackers, pates and foie gras, oils, herbs and spices, and other items. Most of these come in giftbox sets, so the shop is a perfect place to peruse if you're looking for something special to wrap. The grocery also includes the wine cellar, offering some fine French and international vintages.
The Fauchon bakery and patisserie at #24-26 peddles some of the capital's best breads, pastries and baked goods, including the Maison's famed eclairs-- past limited editions have featured silver-screen icons Marilyn Monroe or imitated famous paintings--, macarons, cakes, croissants or pains au chocolat.
The "savory deli", also at #24-26, can be a great place to head for a delicious but fairly informal lunch, offering gourmet sandwiches, smoked meats and fish, and other traditional French "traiteur" items. There's also a charcuterie, cheese, and seafood section. This can be a great bet if you've rented an apartment equipped with kitchen in Paris and are looking to put together a fabulous but labor-free holiday meal while on your sojourn.
The cafe-restaurant offers lunch, dinner, coffee and drinks. Reserve ahead: +33 (0) 70 39 38 39.
