St Tropez has some wonderful bakeries or “pâtisseries”, many of which have been in existence for generations and have created some fantastic pastries and desserts. Here’s our rundown on the top few.

Ladurée is a Parisian pastry house that has several branches in upmarket locations across France. In 1862, Louis Ernest Ladurée, a miller, founded a tea room and pastry shop in rue Royale, Paris.

It was a time when women were gaining their independence and when people were flocking to Paris for the World Fair. The store became a hit and gained a reputation for decadent desserts. Great for macarons and other pastry delights.

Opening hours: 9.30am to 6.30pm. Daily.

Sénéquier

Sénéquier is another local institution where you can find all sorts of delicious bread and cake things to eat, but the thing it does best is nougat. It’s been in business for 120 years selling a closely-guarded nougat recipe of Spanish almonds, Sicilian pistachio nuts and Provençal honey.

It’s right on the water’s edge where the big yachts moor; so buy a sandwich, a drink and some nougat, and watch all of St Tropez’s life walk right past your table.

Opening hours: 7am to 2pm. Daily.

Sénéquier, Quai Jean Jaurès, Saint-Tropez +33 (0)4 94 97 20 20

Marcel et Cavazza

Many people think this little pârisserie does a better Tarte Tropézienne than the original creator La Tarte Trapézienne, round the corner. It’s a great little bakery, perfect for picking up something for a picnic on the beach.
