Gourmet stroll on rue du Bac in Paris in the 7th district.

The Rue du Bac in Paris from the dream pastry shop to the Grande épicerie

Rue du Bac (metro rue du Bac) is very well known to Catholics because at 140 rue du Bac there is a chapel where the Virgin appeared to a novice of the Daughters of Charity. The story goes that the Virgin asked the novice to create a medal in her image, the novice did so and the sisters distributed this medal around them. Thanks to this medal miracles happened and made the reputation of this chapel and its apparitions grow. Here with this small walk we are not interested in spiritual food but rather in earthly food in fact in the heart of the 7th district of Paris we will find on a very reduced perimeter, the greatest pastry cooks or chocolatiers of Paris: La pâtisserie des rêves, Angelina, les chocolat Foucher, Pierre Marcolini. We are in the very high end of pastry and chocolate.
