This title is slightly misleading because I think there are only two bakeries on Il Saint Louis so there isn’t much competition. But nevertheless this place is unreal which is proven by the huge lines of people that wait outside of it. We haven’t quite figured out the bakery’s hours yet so whenever it is open we stock up on dark chocolate crossants and spinach quiches. It is like the Room of Requirement in Harry Potter, it only appears open when we are at our most hungover and need it desperately. Waiting in line at a bakery in the freezing cold feels very Parisian. And the almond and chocolate torte pictured below are definitely worth both the line and the cold.
