Breakfast Pastries: The Best Bakeries from Around the World

There’s nothing more delicious or satisfying than fresh pastry or a steaming loaf of warm bread. As we’ve moved toward a society where most people work all day and homemade bread is a luxury, specialized bakeries have popped up to provide us with the baked goods we crave, but are too busy to make ourselves. Most neighborhoods have a bakery that churns out decent cookies, loaves of bread and local specialties, but some select bakeries have come to be known around the world for baking up incomparable pastry and bread.

Here’s a list of some of the best bakeries around the world.

Sadaharu Aoki – Paris, France

Esteemed patisserie Sadaharu Aoki’s flagship shop in Paris is one of the most influential bakeries in the world. It opened in 1998, and since then he has produced an astounding array of elaborate cakes and immaculately designed confections.

There are tons of patisseries all across Paris that are making similar products, but Aoki has risen above the competition with his signature minimalist aesthetic and fresh, Asian-inspired flavors. Pastry enthusiasts travel unthinkable distances to buy Aoki’s pastry, and after a bite of his Yuzu-Praline Bûche de Noel or his ethereally light Paris Brest aux marrons mâcha, you’ll understand the hype too.
