Address - 278 Avenue Daumesnil, 12th arr.; Métro: Porte Dorée
Located on the eastern edge of Paris, Vandermeersch is certainly situated off the tourist path. Owned and operated by Pierre Hermé-trained pastry chef Stéphane Vandermeersch. Parisians regular leave their own neighborhoods in droves to patron this vintage boulangerie/pâtisserie for their breads, quiches and delectable pastries.
Vandermeersch is most renowned for their mille-feuille, buttery kouglof cakes and galette des rois.
Our advice is to get their early for the Kouglof cakes as locals snaps them up posthaste the moment they are out of the oven.
