Imagine visiting an establishment in Paris that has been around since 1730, such as Stohrer, Paris’ oldest bakery. Now I’m no history buff, but I do know that this store had been selling it’s pastries 58 years before a single convict had even landed in Australia.
Nicholas Stohrer’s move to France dates back to 1725 when King Loius XV married Marie Leszczynska, daughter of King Stanislas of Poland. The pastry chef followed the royal party to the court of Versailles and then 5 years later opened the store at 51 Rue Montorgueil, where it stands today.
Rue de Montorgueil, is a street lined with many cafes, food stalls, and patisseries. This is definitely somewhere you need to visit if you love food. And it’s also around the corner from G. Detou, what could be better.
51 Rue Montorgeuil, 2 arr.
