I visited Paris with my wife and daughter and after reading great reviews about Jean Charles Rochoux decided to give it a try. I bought the chocolate truffles, coffee bar, chocolate hazelnut bar & the chocolate bar with caramelised almonds and also the chocolate hazelnut spread. All the chocolates and the spread were awesome! We were absolutely blown away by... More

Jean Charles Rochoux Chocalatier is a living chocolate museum with exotic and mysterious ingredients that evoke emotions and open our senses for an experience you've never imagined. The permanent collection is a series of chocolates infused with unique and imaginative ingredients that are visual to look at with unexpected but amazing tastes. The temporary collection focuses on seasonal products, made-to-measure,... More

The place was absolutely overflowing with the aroma of chocolate and the staff was incredibly helpful and friendly, often giving us samples and explaining the ingredients. The chocolate covered strawberries were to die for but unfortunately don't have a shelf life for more than 2 days, too short to bring back home :( the entire experience was wonderful though and...

I've been heading here for years to buy chocolate treats for the folks back home (and a few for myself, of course). I decided on this small shop as my go-to place after tasting offerings at about 20 chocolatiers. Not only is the chocolate here rich and creamy with delectable fillings, but the staff strives to please. On my most... More

We visited Jean Charles Rochoux on March 1st. While this place is pretty pricey (we paid almost 5 euros for 4 very small pieces of chocolate), it was by far the best chocolate we have ever had. It was so creamy and just melted in your mouth. There were also a lot of cool chocolate carvings in the store and... More

I read about their homemade hazelnut chocolate spread online and decided to try it. It's absolutely amazing and worth every Euro! You can buy different flavors in jars to bring back home. The spread in the jars have a short shelf life (~2 months) but I think you'll finish them way before that time!

I spent far too much money on sweets and treats during my time in Paris but this place deserved my money. The array of delicious treats is meant to tempt you and believe me I was tempted. The man, I believe he was the actual owner was hilarious. Very welcoming, and very proud of his shop. The packaging alone is... More

The owner was there serving us and he was very friendly and helpful. He made great recommendations, including the delicious truffles and their hazelnut spread, and he even autographed the bags! The chocolate art that were on the shelves were also very intricate and rich in details, which is particularly surprising given these are designed to be eaten. Definitely worth... More

This is our second trip to Paris, and on both we've dedicated a day to a 'chocolate walk', hitting at least 7 'high end' chocolate shops (self proclaimed chocolate snobs that we are!). Jean Charles Rochoux is our new favorite - the chocolates are supreme, the service excellent, the shop a delight to visit. We'll definitely be back and recommend... More

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighbourhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
