Afternoon tartes at Gontran Cherrier

When I read about the “sexy French baker” Gontran Cherrier on I Heart Paris, naturally I had to go. It’s taken me six months to have the opportunity but my eyes, and belly, were not disappointed.

The Montmartre space is clean, comfortable and modern, sitting on a corner and getting light from two sides. It’s perfect for the display of true artisanal baking.

The rustic breads…

many layered vienoisserie…

…the beautiful tartes…

and, well, bagels!

My Italian plum tarte was indeed tart.

But sweet too.

Simply. Delicious.
