There’s no clear connection between the stock exchange and dessert. And yet that’s the path that Myriam Sabet chose to take when she left behind her career in finance and founded Maison Aleph. It’s a haven of honey that specializes in very unique, very cheeky Paris-Levantine combos! Behind the blue tile façade, you’ll find a sweet countertop display filled with crispy angel hair pastries topped with candied fruit and creams (Solliès figs and cinnamon, pistachios and mastic, vanilla and caramel…); their miniature alter-egos (hazelnut, chocolate, almond, bitter orange); the milles-et-une-feuilles millefeuille made with filo pastry (a special mention for the sesame-halva version); a sensational orange blossom flan; elegant miniature cakes, a few ice creams (vanilla-saffron, coffee-cardamom…); plus a section where you can find za’atar, nigella seeds and masterful chocolates. // Jean Pascal

Hidden gem: The chocolate dusted with purple sumac (€7.50 a bar), that’s both tangy, a little salty, and endlessly enjoyable.
