Mardi Gras: where to enjoy delicious donuts?

Les Meilleurs Beignets Paris

It's now or never to celebrate the dietetically incorrect. Believe it or not, religion is good when it allows foodies to feast by celebrating traditions punctuated with great culinary delights. On the eve of Lent , Mardi Gras is an opportunity to have an orgy of the best donuts in Paris , in the windows of the best gourmet landmarks. Our tour of the most exquisite fries.

Hugo & Victor

It will be this week or nothing if you want to taste Hugo & Victor haute couture frying . As usual, Hugues Pouget works wonders in the excellence of the products. It's up to you to see which paradise to lose yourself in: vanilla from Madagascar or creamy chocolate from Madagascar and Peru .

€5. Available March 1-5. 40 boulevard Raspail Paris 7th.


Schnitzel, egg sandwiches... Decidedly, they don't miss one to make us salivate. And Yariv Berreby will still make people happy at Maafim , Salatim's Israeli bakery! After Hanukkah , he takes advantage of Mardi Gras to come back with his cult donuts with candied orange or pistachio. Yallah!

€3.5 for donuts. 5 rue des forges Paris 2nd.

Boneshaker Donuts

It's a phenomenon. If its teams are not always of legendary friendliness, clearly Boneshaker Donuts deals with the most coveted donuts in the capital, judging by the long line in front of their new address in the Sentier, installed opposite their historic bakery since transformed into a bar at brownies . Vanilla icing and oat milk, chocolate or speculoos, the basics are good and effective. According to the menu of the day, the more sophisticated versions are causing a stir on Instagram, like their Salt Toffee Pop Corn . The novelty: you can now enjoy them on the spot with a good matcha latte (€5).

From €3.50. 86 rue d'Aboukir, Paris 2nd.

French Bastards

At the climax of foodporn, donuts filled with homemade spread or caramel are obviously signed French Bastards where bakers 2.0 always go further to twist the organic Parisian classics of pop culture and goodness.

From €2.90. 61 rue Oberkampf Paris 11th - 181 rue Saint-Denis Paris 2nd - 35 place Saint-Ferdinand, Paris 17th.


Sugar baby at Besties ! This very American-style bakery sells girly and pastel pastries full of sugar, chemical coloring and fat to chew on in front of a romantic comedy. Foutu for foutu, we treat ourselves to a box with pistachio, raspberry, rose, the simpson, the classic ice cream or the lemon meringue version. But also, the famous flyer cake, specially revisited for the occasion with a Carnival theme .

Slice of layer cake €6.5, donut from €3.5, box from €18. 10 rue des Bernardins Paris 5th - 11, rue Auber 9th. 06 33 86 28 52.

And also :

Impossible not to mention Mamiche and his fried foods that put us in ecstasy (special dedication to his little donuts stuffed with apple compote). Unfortunately they are closed during holidays. No Mamiche for Shrove Tuesday this year, so we'll catch up at Carnival.

See you on March 24 at 32 rue du Château-d'eau, Paris 10th and 45 rue Condorcet, Paris 9th.
