I am not a huge fan of franchises but I am a fan of cupcakes, which are a rare commodity in Paris, and Berko has cute cupcakes and delicious cheesecake. The cupcakes are just so cute and the small size is actually easier to eat (it also is my excuse to buy a few more). Berko has a large selection of diverse cupcakes and very interesting recipes. I haven’t tasted all the flavors yet because I don’t plan on gaining 25 pounds this month, but I’m working on tasting each one slowly. Berko is a bit pricey but since cupcakes are not easy to find, and good cupcakes are more infrequent than good customer service, I will keep on coming back for their colorful bite size desserts.
Berko has seven locations in or around Paris.The Rue Cler location has a little outdoor seating area great for enjoying a little cupcake and sunshine. I recommend going to the original Berko in the Marais, its worth the detour. Check out their website for all locations and cupcake flavors.
