Au gré des blés (Montreuil-sur-Mer)

Ulysse Toulet is a baker who cares about your well-being! This former accounting and management student left everything behind to bake loaves of bread in Montreuil-sur-Mer, where he and his pastry chef partner Julie now make a living at Au Gré des Blés, located on the ruins of an old well with supposedly magical powers. Expect a Montreuil blue facade, shelves shaped like ears of wheat, and bread made with carefully chosen flours – heirloom varieties grown by Michel-Carol Patin. Load up on things like a perfect ball of sourdough named Odyssée (€7.60/kg) and the intense Equator chocolate croissants (16 grams of chocolate each, instead of the typical 7 grams), where the delicious flavor of Isigny butter really shines through (€1.65). If you’re in the mood for something savory, you’re in luck: they’ve got homemade pizza topped with tomatoes and mozza di bufala or chicken (€13.50), pâté en croûte made with pork from the Ferme des Tilleuls (€80/kg)… There’s a set menu option at lunch, with a sandwich, drink and dessert for €13. // J.Ma.

Hidden gem: An orgasmic flaky brioche, a cross between a croissant and a kouign-amann (€7.20).
