I’ve always liked meringue, but these just took me over the top. I’m sitting here in a coma licking the last bit of chocolate and meringue from my lips…

Delicious doesn’t even begin to describe these… they are… an experience to be savored.

I think since this was written one was opened near where we stayed near the Latin Quarter/St. Germain. My husband came back from a morning coffee run to tell me about a “bakery” he saw and the next day, we bought two of the mini puffs to share – one coffee and one chocolate. There were four of us and let me tell you, those little tastes disappeared in the blink of an eye. Ethereal and unbelievable.

But, do you know the “marvellous” new: The next pastry shop “Aux Merveilleux de Fred” will open in London the 5th of february, 2013, in South Kensington. You will find each of the Merveilleux, every flavours, every shapes (mini, single, pie) and also our brioches “cramiques”. I hope you will enjoy this new.

Feel free to comment. I will be very happy to give further informations about adress and date 🙂

These photos look fantastic! I wish I was in France!!

Ok!I need to drop everything and move to Paris and work in a pastry shop. YUM!!!

I discovered some time ago your website and felt in love with the beautiful images…That why I also added your website on my Favorite Blog List… I hope I can one day realise a stay in one of your appartments or cottages… The Meringue Bakery looks great and as I love sweets….. And I have seen that you discussed the difference between french and american I think there is also an obvious difference in sweets and the way in presenting them, no ?
Have a nice day

ZOMG – YUM! I am so there on my next visit. I *love* meringue – in hard form, in pie form, in any form!

I passed the 16eme location before leaving Paris a couple months ago… yes, you read that right: I PASSED it! I didn’t sample! What was I thinking? Now I’m kicking myself twice as hard!

Wonderful pictures Julian! Makes me wish I was back there now.
