Gontran Cherrier - Artisan Boulanger


Sexy French baker, Gontran Cherrier, has opened up a a new boulangerie in the 18th arrondissement of Paris. The simple, airy corner space, with shiny white metro-tiled walls and a mosaic floor, provides a showcase for his innovative take on traditional French baked goods. Savoury options such as tartes fines (€4.20), a kind of French pizza, come with delicious toppings including rocket, tomato and bacon, or you can sample delicious bagels and rolls (€4.90), such as the veggie option of gaucamole and red onion in a green bun, coloured and flavoured with with rocket. More traditional viennoiseries (croissants and the like) and bread are also sold, as are cakes like the banana, pistachio and lime tarte we sampled on our visit. These delights can all be eaten in, seated along the window seats, where you can read a paper and have a coffee, or indeed can be taken away.
