Maison Pradier is a company that has been around since 1859 and offers beautiful food in a wonderful setting. Although Maison Pradier has many establishments around the city, we recommend visiting the original behind 'L'Assemblée Nationale' in the 7th arrondissement of Paris which we think is the best! This fresh deli style eaterie also offers homemade patisseries and croissants which are to die for - making it the perfect place for breakfast in Paris.

A great breakfast spot for those incredible croissants is Boulangerie Pichard in the 15th arrondissement of Paris! After winning the best croissant of the year award in 2011 it's clear to see why this spot is one of the places to go. The golden crunch of these croissants is what make them brilliant and the decor of the establishment is quite lovely. The warm atmosphere and the wide range of sweet treats should put it on your places to go list when visiting Paris.
