My Paris Series: L’Eclair de Génie

This weeks’ My Paris Series installment is all about one of my favorite places in the city of light when I’m craving something sweet: L’Eclair de Génie.  Located in the center of le Marais, it’s a great spot to grab a snack or dessert & walk down to Place de Vosges to picnic on a warm day.   I first discovered this place back in 2014 when a few of my friends & I were trying to figure out where the mythical ice-cream eclair came from (it’s not a myth! they exist!).  Eclairs are a staple French sweet, but this place takes the traditional eclair and cranks up the creativity to create these amazing one-of a kind treats. 5-l-eclair-de-genie

I could honestly eat one of these every day & never get sick of them because their flavors are seasonal (with the exception of a few of their staple flavors).  They debut special limited edition flavors with each season & holiday so there’s always some new creative flavor to discover each time you go!10175407693_7700e0b587_bimg_3027If you happen to be in Paris over the summer, you’ll be lucky enough to snag one of their Ice-Cream Eclairs! Yes you heard me right, it is an eclair pastry filled with wonderful house made ice-cream.  These things are pretty much the best thing you will ever eat when it’s hot out and you’ve been walking, exploring the city for hours. Untitled-4img_9751-1024x683

This location is my personal favorite, but there are actually 5 different stores located all around the city! Regardless of what location you decide on, it is definitely a place to put on your To Do list whenever you’re in the city of light!eclair-de-genie-eclairsAddress:
