Doughnuts Paris

Sample dishes:

Maple bacon doughnuts, brownies, cinnamon buns, filter coffee, hand-squeezed juices.

American pastry chef Amanda Bankert and her Irish husband Louis Scott’s small batch shop  serves raised yeast hand-rolled doughnuts that take 18-hours of love to make.

They source local French flour, free-range organic eggs, and seasonal fruits and veggies to create unusual flavours, such as cardamom and 70% chocolate, craft beer & sugar glaze, maple-bacon, Bourbon toffee popcorn, salted butter caramel, etc. but they change frequently so even as I write this she’s planning new flavours for next week.

Filter coffee by local roaster Belleville Brûlerie is the perfect companion to the sweet & savoury treats.

It is a wildly popular little place after having opened only 4 months ago – with a steady stream of regulars and first-time visitors that have sought them out.
