Selling like cupcakes.
A brand new bakery has opened in Montmartre. But if you are looking for your classic pâtisseries you will be highly disapointed, as there are none. Berko is a French-owned bakery selling American cupcakes and they are going like hotcakes! Every time I walk pass the shop, there are dozens of people staring at, but mostly drooling over the fabulous display of cakes. And you can find 20 different flavours. Just that! From your classic chocolate, vanilla, lemon and carrot to more original flavours (varying each week) like M&M's, Oreo, Nutella, or Mousse au Chocolat (the last time I was there they even had a Smurf cupcake!) . Berko also offers a selection of mini-tarts and real New-York style cheesecakes. Delicious!
Berko - 31 rue Lepic, 75018 or 23 rue Rambuteau, 75004.
