La Maison Pichard is a bakery owned by Frédéric Pichard.

It is also famous for baking bread in a wood-fired oven, something that is now rare even in Paris.
His son, Geoffrey Pichard, runs La Maison d’Isabelle.

The exterior of the store, facing Cambronne Street, is simple and chic.
The entrance is very easy to enter.
Also, the showcases outside are very eye-catching.
On the inside of the tent, you can see the many awards it has received.
Of course, this is only a small sample of the award-winning products.
Just standing at the entrance, you can see the whole store, which is very open.
The showcase on the right side of the store is neat and tidy.
Various kinds of traditional breads are also available.
The croissants tend to be the most popular, but they are not to be underestimated.
It is also a good display.
I don’t know much about these breads, but I’m eager to try many of them.
In the viennoiserie corner at the back of the store, you will find the croissants you are looking for.
The 2017 competition winner croissant is on the line for 1 euro.
It’s really amazing how winning an award doesn’t change the taste or the price.
On the left side of the store, there are many cakes that will never stop tempting you.
There is also a wide selection of tart cakes.
Anyway, the products are easy to see.
The crepe I failed to buy.
After much deliberation, I ended up buying my favorite strawberry tart.
I also bought the millefeuille that won the 2011 competition.
The wrapping is unique and stylish.
I also like the way it is packaged without any waste.
Ice cream is also sold in the back of the store.
The millefeuille and tart I bought this time.
The taste is not overpowering, and I can eat as many as I want.
The millefeuille is wonderful.
A crispy mille-feuille that can be cut with a fork or spoon.
Even in Paris, these crispy millefeuille are few and far between.
These croissants are crispy, buttery, and delicious.
Compared to the croissant at La Maison d’Isabelle, it’s more crispy and less chunky.
Which one is better is a matter of taste.
Of course, both are among the best croissants in Paris.
The overall rating is as follows on a 5-point list.
La Maison Pichard
Store clerk : ★★★★☆
Ease of purchase: ★★★★☆
The taste is unquestionably 5 stars.
The overall affordability of the product is another point of high appreciation.
The appearance is simple, but not very distinctive.
I think the only unique feature is the wheat design on the sign.
The store is simple, but very easy to see.
The view of the wood-fired oven at the back of the store is a very nice touch.
The price is 5 stars without any complaints.
The price is so reasonable that you might think you heard wrong when you pay the bill.
The clerk is not particularly friendly, but they are always efficient and pleasant to shop with.
Ease of purchase is not a problem.
However, it may be a little difficult to purchase during crowded times.
The location isn’t bad.
You can get there by taking Route 12, which passes by the Madeleine, so it should be no problem for those who are not familiar with Paris.
However, there are no tourist attractions nearby, so you have to come here only to find them.
For those who like to visit bakeries, there are many bakeries in the neighborhood that you can walk to, so it would be fun to visit them as well.
La Maison Pichard is one of the best bakeries in Paris, but there is one big problem.
That is the business hours.
The main problem is that the store is closed two days a week, Monday and Tuesday, and furthermore, even on business days, the store takes a break from 1:30 PM to 4:00 PM.
In fact, many times when I wanted to go to the store, it was just when the store was on break and I could not stop by.
Of course, it’s more of a local store than a tourist store, so it can’t be helped. 、、、、
If you are planning to visit La Maison Pichard, please make sure to calculate the day and time of your visit in advance.
