Written out in white capital letters on the beautiful royal blue facade, where Rue Pasteur and Rue du Portail-Matheron meet: “sourdough bread” on one side, “bakery” on the other – for all those who hadn’t yet figured out what Mimi is all about. Who’s responsible for this lovely little shop? Mathilde Ruillier and Antoine Billaut, both of whom are new to the baking world (she used to work in communications, he worked in the restaurant industry) and share a love for slow fermentations and beautiful organic ingredients. Around here, you’ll find loaves made with three types of levain (rye, khorasan wheat and rice flour), like this country bread that lasts all week long, or the moist rice-buckwheat bread… Along with a Kalamata olive, herbes de Provence and pepper fougasse, an apricot-rosemary cake, well-made cinnamon rolls and even some luscious brioche buns – including an irresistible “doo-wap” chocolate brioche. // Raoul Taburin 

THE HIDDEN GEM: The Linzer Torte, a braided Austrian tart made on shortbread almond and hazelnut dough, painted with raspberry jam (€3.50 a slice).
