Calling all Parisiennes!!! Charming yet choosy as you are, there is now a dainty delicious lunch/bakery/épicerie bound to suit all your fancies!
Located on the ever so trendy rue Saint-Honoré, in the 1st arrondissement, “Oh mon Cake!” is a tinier and cosier version of Dean and Deluca, where everything is “fait maison et avec amour” (homemade and made with love).
Portion sizes are petite, like you prefer to kept your dress size, yet packed with flavor for both the sweet and salty Parisienne. For lunch, try one of their original salty “cakes” or tartes, which often consists of yummy combos such as goat cheese and leeks. In addition to a cake/tarte, their lunch menu also includes a soup of the day, most of which are veggie soups often seasoned with unique spices such as vanilla.
Everything in “Oh mon Cake!” is made fresh using in season produce with no preservatives, so even the pickest Parisienne can’t complain!
For the sweet-toothed Parisienne, (note: when in “Oh mon Cake!”, you are immediately converted to one) there is a divine RED VELVET cake, as well as a variety of home-baked cookies, tartes, and well, more cakes! I have never seen red velvet with frosting anywhere else in this city, so if you are a fan, this is the place to get it.
Last but not least, if you are looking to provide sweet fresh-baked goodies for an event (b-day, office send off etc) “Oh mon Cake!” takes large orders for all their baked goods.
Whether you are looking for a healthy lunch on the go, or just a cozy nook to read the paper or browse the net (free wifi), “Oh mon Cake!” will not disappoint. So indeed, let them eat cake! (Parisienne princesses and peasants alike!)

Tucked away on tiny sides streets in Paris’s Marais district, or inhabiting unassuming street corners, the art of French pastry remains as elusive to local Parisians as it does to visiting tourists. A truly delectable millefeuille, with its layers of finely whipped cream and pastry, or the perfect macaroon, with its velvety innards and delicate crunchy outer shell, will not be found at just any run of the mill boulangerie.
However satisfying your sweet tooth with some of the most elegant, creative, delicious, and inspiring desserts in the City of Lights has just gotten easier. “Sweet Paris,” or “Paris tout Sucre,” is the first iPhone application guide to hit the Apple App store, presenting the most exquisite patisseries and chocolatiers in Paris. Created by web developer Peter Luebken, Sweet Paris was conceived after Luebken moved to Paris and was taken by the gorgeous yet mouth-watering displays of small patisseries in his local arrondissement.
“One of the first things I learned after moving to Paris is that people are really passionate about food. As a sweet lover myself, it took a lot of trying to find the shops in my neighborhood which are above average and really exceptional. As I couldn’t find an app facilitating the search, I started collecting information on the best patisseries/chocolatiers first for my arrondissement, and then for all of Paris – and I have to say it was one of the sweetest undertaking ever.”
