Read an Excerpt
Take the escalator sortie from the metro and you will be right at the door of Gosselim! It is only two blocks from the Musee d'Orsay, where it's best to eat your pastry on the steps watching the artsy street action. The pain aux raisins are a 10+ at 1.80 euro, the mille-feuilles creamy and oozing at 2.10 euro, and if you are planning a picnic lunch on the steps of the Orsay, then consider the sandwiches from this patisserie. The choices are few and the lines are long inside the museum. Unlike the Louvre, the food isn't as well organized at the d'Orsay, according to J et G, and who is more interested in your eating satisfaction while in Paris than Jeanette et Georgette?
