Foodies know that a Parisian break offers the perfect opportunity to dine in the finest restaurants but also to enjoy the delicious delights sold in renowned shops that have helped to establish the worldwide reputation of French gastronomy. During your stay at the Hotel Volney Opera you can indulge in the tasty treats offered by Ladurée, Fauchon and Stohrer.
Ladurée, Fauchon and Stohrer; three essential gourmet destinations
The Hotel Volney Opera has the advantages of superb comfort and a refined atmosphere as well as an exceptional location close to the Boulevard des Capucines, the Opera Garnier and the Louvre Museum. This upscale district is home to some of the biggest names in luxury, as well as several establishments known for their irresistible little treats and exquisite pâtisseries.
The luxury baker and sweets maker Ladurée, established in the mid-nineteenth century, is famous for macarons and pâtisseries that are true works of art. It's a real pleasure to stop there for a cup of tea and a little something extra.
Another essential stop on your gourmet tour is Fauchon on the Place de la Madeleine. This gourmet food and delicatessen establishment offers dishes prepared with love by a great chef to take away or eat on site.
To find the oldest pâtisserie in Paris, head to the nearby Montorgueil district. Here you’ll find Stohrer and its old-world setting where you can enjoy the best rum babas in the capital.
A wealth of shops dedicated to taste bud bliss
In addition to the great names in pâtisserie and haute cuisine such as Fauchon, Ladurée and Storher, the Hotel Volney Opera’s district is bursting with other great gourmet locations. It takes only a few minutes to get to the Maison du Miel on the Rue Vignon, where you’ll find hundreds of varieties of French and foreign honey, or the Maison Maille and its incredible selection of condiments.
