Pâtisserie Ciel is a breath of fresh air among the often heavy & laden in sugar patisseries which Paris has become so famous for. After several months of living in the land of cheese and bread you might just find yourself needing a break from the starchy baguette and buttery croissant and if/ when you tire of the French classics you might just find Pâtisserie Ciel the ideal place to try. Much lighter on the lips, these candy-coloured sponge cakes, entirely void of butter, still manage to kick any sugar craving yet don’t leave you feeling boated and over-full. Not to mention the place itself is far from Parisian in appearance with a white, refreshing interior and hushed whispers being exchanged you’ll find it a calming oasis from the overcrowded boulangerie across the road. These little angel cakes are a testament to the ever-growing dessert scene in Paris.
Address: 3 Rue Monge, 75005 // Métro: Maubert Mutualité

Yes I’ve tried that one as well – been there too many times and it’s so good!

I am sure you get to hear this many times,but i am so fascinated by your pics, words,cultures in your pics. Coming from a small town in Borneo, Paris is a little bit out of reach, but I am dreaming of finally laying my feet on its ground, experiencing what it has to offer, and if God permitted,maybe seeing you and have a coffee date

Ah thank you so much for you sweet words – I know that feeling I come from a very small village in England so the prospect of moving to a big city such as Paris was at first nerve-wracking but later unbelievably exciting. Yes I would love to meet in person if we’re ever in the same location at the same time!
