Paris Baguette is a brand of Paris Croissant, a South Korea-based chain of bakeries owned by the SPC Group. Paris Croissant is itself a brainchild of Chang-sung Hur who launched it in 1945 and has since then ushered it to international prominence. Paris Baguette was launched in 1988.
As of 2018, there are more than 3,300 Paris Baguette retail stores in South Korea and more than 50 in the United States. There are also retail shops in France, Singapore, Vietnam, and China.
What They’re Known For
Paris Baguette, a chain of fast casual bakery-café stores, specializes in French-inspired baked goods including cakes, sandwiches and pastries, as well as signature coffee. Each retail store brings the romantic Parisian café experience to its customers no matter its location.
Why Eat Here
The Paris Baguette experience is unlike any offered by its competitors in the fast casual segment. Yes, the vibe may be casual and the service fast but there’s a certain sense of relaxed elegance that brings customers back for more! This can be partly attributed, too, to the use of quality ingredients and the friendly customer service, as well as the impeccable décor that evokes the beauty of the City of Lights.
Of course, the French-inspired baked goods are the best reason to come here. If you have tasted French baked goods in France – there’s no place like the birthplace itself as a measuring stick – then you will likely agree that the chefs of Paris Baguette measure up. The pastries are always made fresh daily, not to mention that customers snap up the items almost as soon as they are placed on the glass shelves.
Everything at Paris Baguette tastes delicious, from the sweet cakes to the savory croissants, too. These are best paired with the chain’s signature coffee, a strong brew that complements the flavors of the pastries. Perhaps, you may even come here just for the coffee!
As soon as you enter the door, your eyes will be immediately attracted to the rows upon rows of pastries, cakes and breads on the shelves. You will have a difficult time choosing which ones to order because everything looks so good, not to mention that these smell great, too. You may want to order one of everything, if money isn’t an object, eat some of them in the café and take home the rest for later.
The Mini Swirl Pain au Chocolate is to-die for with its rich, creamy chocolaty flavor combined with its dense texture. The Black and Blueberry Cream Pastry may be high in calories (640) but every bite makes you forget about it. The Fresh Cream Red and Bean Brioche are must-haves, too, when you’re craving for authentic French pastries but don’t have the money to go to Paris.
The Soft Mocha Cake has the perfect balance between coffee and chocolate so it’s a great paired with the signature coffee. The Mozzarella Onion Bread is a savory bread with a creamy cheesy texture in the mouth while its onion flavor isn’t overpowering the cheese. The Apple Bavarian Cream Pastry’s filling oozes like a dream and melts in the mouth like heaven while the Soft Sweet Potato Cake has a decadent taste.
Other pastries on the menu include the Sweet Veggie Bread, Almond Meringue Pastry, Soft Cheesecake, Chocolate Cream Bread, Mocha Cream Cheese Bread, and the Cinnamon Sugar. We love the coffee buns because of their subtle coffee flavor and the chestnut bread for its nutty taste.
Keep in mind that every Paris Baguette is a fast casual café so there are no waiters and table service. Instead, it uses a self-serving concept where customers pick up their trays and boxes, fall in line, and start filling them with the pastries, breads, and cakes of their choice. This can be problematic for a person who has self-restraint issues in the face of such beautifully presented pastries but since Paris Baguette will likely stay, there’s always the next time for indulgence.
The staff members at every Paris Baguette seem to have been well-trained in the art of customer service. They are courteous, friendly and efficient so the line moves relatively fast and the customers are happy.
The Paris Baguette shops are also elegantly decorated akin to a cute Parisian café, too. The layout makes it possible to move between tables quite well (i.e., no squeezing between chairs).
