What we love…
- This place is known for it's execution rather then it's "innovation," but the experience is nonetheless something that you'd be hard pressed to find at home. The house specialty here is the tarts, arguably the best in the city. Ask any Parisian for a list of their favorite desserts in Paris, and Gerard Mulot's strawberry tart will almost always make their list.
- While the tartes, macarons, and pastries are rightfully hot commodities in this place, the bread is what the locals are getting. You'll regret not picking up a brioche or pain au chocolat when you have your mid-morning carb craving (that's a thing in Paris ;-)
- Great option for breakfast on the go. In typical French fashion the shop doesn't replenish the goods they've run out of, they just close when the shop is done. Arrive after noon and you'll have little to no selection.
- Slept in and now it's lunch? They use that world famous bread to make sandwiches to go. Our favorite is the chicken on raisin brioche, yum!
- Purchasing isn't as straight forward as you would think (and why would it be?). Order, receive a ticket, go to the back of the shop and pay, where you'll get another ticket that you take back to the person that gave you the first one, who then gives you you package. Simple, right?
- Open on Mondays! Almost every bakery in France is closed on Monday, not Mulot. They are however closed on Children's day—better known as Wednesday.
