You can’t walk past it without admiring its window and wanting to buy everything there, “A la Mère de Famille” is the oldest chocolate factory in Paris.
An historic chocolaterie
The history of À la Mère de Famille begins in 1761. The chocolate factory -confiserie has become over the centuries a real institution and also offers ice cream and pastries. The historic boutique and its listed façade, at the corner of the streets of the faubourg Montmartre and Richer, is worth a visit. Inside, it is a paradise for lovers of sweets: old-fashioned jars, nougats, bergamots, caramels, pralines or marshmallow squares.
And why not let yourself be tempted, from November, to the house’s candied chestnuts, considered to be the best in the capital. A monument ! Many other addresses exist in Paris.
