This weeks’ My Paris Series installment is all about one of my favorite places in the city of light when I’m craving something sweet: L’Eclair de Génie. Located in the center of le Marais, it’s a great spot to grab a snack or dessert & walk down to Place de Vosges to picnic on a warm day. I first discovered this place back in 2014 when a few of my friends & I were trying to figure out where the mythical ice-cream eclair came from (it’s not a myth! they exist!). Eclairs are a staple French sweet, but this place takes the traditional eclair and cranks up the creativity to create these amazing one-of a kind treats.
L’Eclair de Génie
I could honestly eat one of these every day & never get sick of them because their flavors are seasonal (with the exception of a few of their staple flavors). They debut special limited edition flavors with each season & holiday so there’s always some new creative flavor to discover each time you go!If you happen to be in Paris over the summer, you’ll be lucky enough to snag one of their Ice-Cream Eclairs! Yes you heard me right, it is an eclair pastry filled with wonderful house made ice-cream. These things are pretty much the best thing you will ever eat when it’s hot out and you’ve been walking, exploring the city for hours.
This location is my personal favorite, but there are actually 5 different stores located all around the city! Regardless of what location you decide on, it is definitely a place to put on your To Do list whenever you’re in the city of light!Address:
