I am surprised at how few people know of Pierre Herme in the United States. The patisseries are better than Laduree by a mile. Beautifully crafted desserts that aren't overly sweet (like Laduree). The macaroons are a favorite here and almost resemble tiny cakes compared your traditional macaroon.

As excellent as everyone says, this pastry shop has achieved a cult following and the one major deterrent at this point is the always endless line, stretching as far as a block from the shop entrance, at times. If you are die-hard about macaroons, stick out the wait, but if you are not truly dedicated to your Pierre Herme mission, you might end up feeling letdown, by the time you get inside. If you are not willing to wait, but want something similar, walk a couple of blocks to victor Hugo on rue chomel.

There are several Pierre Herme stores in Paris. Some may argue that the original store in the Saint-Germain des Prés area should be THE one to visit. For me, there is something to be said about admiring (and eating of course) beautifully and deliciously created macrons AND macrons bonbons...and then stroll down the street to see the most beautiful store of an iconic brand created by a woman pioneer in the fashion world, Ms. Coco Chanel. That's love and happiness. Reasons # 24 and # 132 why I heart Paris.
