Irresistible Basque pastries

Irresistible Basque pastries

At teatime, Biarritz abounds with popular gourmet spots.

Established in Biarritz in the late 19th century, Miremont, with its easy-to-spot candy-pink storefront, remains a favourite stop for lovers of macaroons and homemade fudge. Among the treats on offer are the famous chocolate Béret Basque and the Paris Biarritz, choux pastry wonderfully adorned with local flavours: whipped chocolate cream, Itxassou cherry and Espelette pepper.

Do not pass up a chance to taste the spectacular Basque cake at Pariès, available in four flavours: almond cream, chocolate, black cherry, and hazelnut. The sweet delights continue at Thierry Bamas. Awarded Best Pastry and chocolate maker in France, he seduces locals and tourists alike with a selection of the world's best cocoas and irresistible creations like caramel truffle, Basque Coast "rocher" with almond praline and hazelnuts, and chocolate caviar. An ideal choice for a cocoa-suffused afternoon snack, to the delight of all children, and best enjoyed as a family outing after exploring the streets of Biarritz.
