    Hello, I work in the 20th arrondissement, just next to the baker of the rue Sorbier, and the owner moved last year. His bread and sandwiches were great, but unfortunately the new one sucks ! It is truly disgusting. I work in a building with many small companies that used to buy their lunch there, and we all stopped going…

  2. Meg says:

    Thanks for the report, PH! These sort of tips are incredibly helpful. I’ve added a note, indicating the change in ownership, to the list and Google map.

  3. Jonathan says:

    So thrilled to find this…and discover that one of the top ten places is down the block from where I’ll be staying in June!

  4. Pius Lee says:

    YEEHAW! This is exactly what I was looking for. Great touch on adding the Google maps, all on one page!

    Headed to Paris during the summer and I can’t ever get enough baguettes.

    I hope you keep the list updated for 2011! Thanks!!!
