Sugar Plum Cake Shop

Sugar Plum, Paris

While strolling through the 5eme a few weeks ago,we stumbled upon this rather obscure little shop which barely boasted any branding (a recurring trend in Paris I am noticing, see here!) and which seemed quite plain on the outside.

But with a name like Sugar Plum you immediately know what you’re in for! As soon as the shop name came into view, images of jumbo chocolate chip cookies and chewy brownies were circling around my head just like in the cartoons. Ka-bam! The sugar monster in me was awakened..

I had heard about this bakery from a colleague who lives in the 5eme arrondissement and made the connection as soon as I saw the name. Two Canadian friends come to Paris and opened an all-American bake shop. It’s the cliched but quintessential dream of any sugar-loving girl…

The inside of the shop was just as I hoped it would be.  Warm, cozy and very homey.  The display area and coffee bar are quite small but the space is actually quite spaceous with many seats to choose from.  Most tables had just one person – there to disconnect on an easy Saturday morning – with their book, journal or laptop.  The selection of goodies was not very huge but just enough to make choosing tough (I’m super indecisive!) and apparently they make beautiful tiered cakes to order as well.

After much deliberation, the lovely (English-speaking aaahhh) girl behind the counter deciphered exactly what I was looking for.  *sigh the simple pleasure of being understood* Something delectable, textured and chewy and so we left with a big square of “Hello Dolly” a delicious golden-colored brownie lookalike that contains chocolate chips, shredded coconuts, pecans and lots more deliciousness!  *drool*

Note to self: MUST go back for that!  If you’re ever in the neighborhood, please please please do NOT miss the Hello Dolly.  Trust me on this one!
