Paris Pastry App Update – Version 2.0+
Welcome to my website. I created the Paris Pastry app to feature and highlight hundreds of the best chocolate shop, bakeries, and pastry shops in Paris. Unfortunately the technology of building and maintaining the app eventually exceeded my capabilities and it wasn’t possible for me to update it as often as wanted to. Because of those limitations, and others, I made the difficult decision to remove the app for sale. If you have the app, it should still be functional but I am unable to update it.
For your convenience, I’ve put many of my favorite Paris pastry addresses on this blog and you can find them listed under Paris Pastry and Chocolate Shops. Thanks! – David
We’ve completely revamped and rebuilt the Paris Pastry app, starting with adding updates and the latest information about Paris pastry shops and updating my favorite addresses. But we’ve also rebuilt the app from the ground up, including a scrollable, enhanced French pastry glossary and dynamic maps searchable with a tap, to find the pastry shop nearest to wherever you are in Paris.
To use the app, open up the home page and you’ll find categories for everything, from delicious scoops of ice cream to where to find the best hot chocolate. There’s also an introduction by me about Paris pastries, as well as a glossary of terms you might come across in a bakery or chocolate shop. If you’re looking for a quick “Best of Paris” overview, check out my Top 25 Places in Paris for Pastry.
Click on any entry, in any category, and you’ll find the address, opening hours, telephone number, website (if available), and a description of each and every shop, including specialties of the house. And for each shop, there are several pictures to give you a sample of what’s in store for you when you go. There are over 500 full-color shots in the app. (And even if you’re not planning a visit to Paris right away, lots of folks have told me they’re been enjoying just gazing at the pictures of the pastries!)
Due to popular demand, maps are now linked to GPS, so that you can tap any address and a map will show you the way there. You can also tap the “Nearby” icon, and you’ll be shown all the great shops right near where you are. The glossary is now expanded and scrollable to help you with the various terms and names of pastries, to help you choose your favorites and learn about new ones. And my Top 25 Favorite Pastry Addresses in Paris has been updated. (Which is also available on the free Lite version of the Paris Pastry Guide app.) Plus some terrific new places have opened since the last update, and others have expanded to new addresses, so those have been included in the new version along with pictures and descriptions of their specialties as well.
If you have the app already, go ahead and update it. For those who don’t have it, it’s available in the iTunes store. The Paris Pastry Guide is also available for Kindle and as a downloadable e-book, as well as a version compatible with Android devices (all $3.99), at the Paris Pastry website.
