I’ve noticed that just about all bakeries sell a variety of pre-prepared sandwiches and other dishes. It seemed like a many people dropped in to pick up these sandwiches for lunch, or at least to eat later, but just as many opted to take them for breakfast. That said, pastries were definitely the most popular at the boulangerie/patisserie I stopped in on Wednesday morning. I believe the name was Cafe Richard, near the Place de la Revolution, but the name was not particularly well marked.
I tried a Croque Campagnard, which was a three layered toasted sandwich with ham in it, very similar to a Croque Monsieur, but made with an excellent rye bread. There was a ridiculous amount of cheese it in, but it was oozing and delicious.
I also picked up a chocolate croissant and – of course, un cafe to go with it. These, too, were delicious. The croissant was very soft and almost reminded me of a dinner roll, and it had just the right amount of chocolate. I’ll update this with the address, as everyone at the shop was extremely nice and their fantastic looking desserts (which I didn’t try) would definitely prompt a return visit!
