Baguette sandwiches are quintessentially delicious.

The apple tart was also very good!


The madeleines are also unquestionably delicious.

The shops that win top prizes in baguette competitions are basically boulangeries, so their cakes are often not very good.

However, this bakery is also quite good at sweet breads and pastries.

The overall rating is as follows on a 5-point list.

Boulangerie LEROY MONTI


Exterior: ★★★★☆

Interior: ★★★☆☆


Store clerk : ★★★★★

Ease of purchase: ★★★★☆

Location: ★★☆☆☆

As for the taste, the baguettes, as well as the other products, were very good.

The exterior is very pleasing, with a uniform green colour scheme.

(I believe the exterior colour has now been changed.)

The shop is clean but has no special features.

Staff were very pleasant.

It is very easy to purchase.

The shop is small and the products are easy to see, making it easy to choose.

Location is unfortunately a negative point.

It may be for bread lovers, as there are no tourist attractions nearby and it is a distance from the centre.

Overall, the results were highly positive.

The shop is highly recommended, not only for its baguettes, but also for its sweet-related products.

However, the location is far from the city centre, so it may not be suitable for first-time visitors to Paris or those who are staying for only a few days.

If you like bakeries, this is the place to visit.

Thank you again for reading to the end of this issue.
