[Photographs: Kathy YL Chan]

Paris is heaven for anyone with a sweet tooth, but you already knew that. We spent the last few weeks eating our way through the city and visiting some of our favorite bakeries. From the big names like Pierre Hermé and Ladurée to the smaller spots like Au Panetier, the classics like Stohrer and Poilâne, and the gorgeous, jewelry boutique-like shops of Jacques Genin and Sadaharu Aoki, we found many, many desserts to love. Here are ten essential Paris sweets for your next visit.
