Your Guide to the Best Bakery in Paris: Cedric Grolet Opera

Share this article

Cédric Grolet Opéra is a bakery located in the Opera district of Paris.

It is a shop opened by pastry chef Cédric Grolet, who became the World Pastry Champion in 2017.


Currently, it is extremely popular and has been featured in magazines such as Vogue France and Elle, as well as other media outlets.

The shop opens at 8:30 AM. I arrived around 8:50 AM, but despite it being a weekday, there was already a queue of about 15 people.

I waited a whopping 30 minutes just to get one croissant. The shop has a very chic atmosphere.



In terms of bread variety, it is more limited compared to other bakeries in Paris.

They offer classic croissants, pain au chocolat, brioche, and small cakes.

The croissants are priced at 3 euros each (compared to an average of about 1.2 euros in Paris), which is slightly higher, but definitely worth trying! They have a crispy texture and are among the best croissants I’ve ever tried!

Even if you only buy one croissant, they will pack it in a cute box for you.


The second floor of the shop is a café space, where you can enter without waiting.

Cedric Grolet Opera is an absolute must-visit for any pastry lover in Paris. From the moment you step inside, the enchanting ambiance, heavenly croissants, and overall experience will leave an indelible mark on your culinary journey. Don’t miss the chance to indulge in these delectable delights and discover why this bakery has taken the city by storm!
