This women-run bakery with locations in the 9th and 10th arrondissements is newer and may not provide the Art Deco atmosphere you want for your grid, but their bread and pastries are some of the best in town—especially the babka and cinnamon bun, which other, more traditional institutions don’t often make.
Go after breakfast but before lunch (around 10:30am is good) and grab one of their turkey sandwiches on a brioche bun and at least one of the €1 cream-stuffed chou for dessert before heading to the canal to chow down. And yes, the line is worth it.
