Coquelicot Bakery For The Best Baguettes in Montmartre


Most people who have traveled to Paris have eventually made their way to Montmartre, the artsy historical alluring place on the hill to the north. I’ve been there umpteen times and each time I’m about ready to leave, I try to grab a coffee or savory baguette at Coquelicot Bakery before I jump on the subway, that is if I’m not already full on one of the local creperies nearby.

They’re known for their bread in general, but their baguettes are out of this world. La Picolla is a tradition baguette, shaped by hand, twisted and floured. Its inside crumb is a bit more compact, which gives it a longer lasting taste, while its crust still is full of flavor.

A team of three bakers manufactures all the baguettes and breads every day. The dough is prepared with the utmost care, with a long enough fermentation time so that after cooking all these breads are crisp and mellow.

The poppy (coquelicot in french) is the emblem of the shop. The Coquelicot is a poetic and ephemeral flower that is found in untreated wheat fields. All of their baguettes bread, “La Reine”, “La Coquelicot”, “La Picolla”, are true french tradition baguettes weighing 300 grams. “La Reine” (the Queen) is a non-floured tradition baguette whose honeycomb-like inside crumb is appreciated and “La Coquelicot” (the Poppy) is a floured tradition baguette.  Enjoy!
