I have known this place since I lived in Paris 30 years ago. The owner, Denise, is a classic. Beware! She will talk a lot and show you many reviews and newspaper articles but she also knows her chocolates and delightful candy of all kinds....More

Many boutiques are closed in August and I did not call to see if it was open so we were very disappointed to find it closed 😞. Moral of the story, when in Paris in August, call to see if specific shoppes are open.

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
