If passing nearby, you can not walk away without perceiving Boulangerie Monge. The line, specially on the weekends will attract your attention and curiosity. When you get nearer and see the glass window it will be decided, the dilemma of waiting or not will be resolved.
There a lots of different cakes, that taste amazing (ex. tarte au chocolat-praliné) although it is primarily a bakery and not patisserie.
The stars are however in the form of bread products – different sort of baguettes and breads let you experiment with the variety. The owner announces that they use 100 % pure flour and cocoa and for the health food minded there is a choice of Bio products.
The chocolate rolls (escargot), lemon, almond and pistachio rolls are speciality of this place, if you ask me. Fair amounts of chocolate in a roll, make it a delightful bakery-cookie hybrid.
One of the attractive details about Boulangerie Monge is that you can see, the bakers making bread through the shop window . When you see them during the day you can buy it immediately, but if you pass early at the morning, you’ll be obliged just to watch and buy at the opening time which can be a difficult wait.
