There is nothing like a sweet fix in Paris.
The city of lights, known for rampant PDA (to which I subscribe), can also unarguably be deemed the city of delights (patisserie-bliss in my books.) On a recent few days in pah-ree, I naturally had an extensive list of bakeries to visit, the dessert-oholic that I am. Perhaps I was feeling the rebellious French nature, or maybe just wanting something new, but somehow I wasn't interested to visit the famous and exquisite Patisseries like Angelina and Ladurée of which I had visited in the past (but still highly recommend). The wait-y lines out the door at Angelina could also have been the catalyst for me to try something new...
If you're looking for a different kind of Paris bakery, but one still beautifully tasteful Boulangerie Pâtisserie Murciano is your place.

You will find this boulangerie patisserie on Rue des Rosiers, a small street in Le Marais district rich in history (what street in Paris isn't!), particularly in Ashkenazi Jewish history. It is the epicentre of the Jewish quarter and has more recently been known for its fashionable boutiques.
Challah bread works really well in my Haut Appétit Summer Pudding recipe.
Poppy seed strudel quickly became my snack!
I was over the moon with this Paris delight to say the least...

Not fussy, not stuffy, welcoming... I forgot I was in Paris.
