Pastry shop interior
La Maison Stohrer is one of the the oldest and most revered Parisian patisseries (pastry shops) and caterers. The shop on Rue Montorgueil is the oldest and opened in the early 18th century. The storefront and interior alone are admirable for their elaborate frescoes and carvings. This shot, taken on a Sunday, gives a sense of how crowded the store gets, especially during the weekend.
Founded in 1916, this pastry shop is located in the Esquilino neighbourhood, Piazza Vittorio. Regoli is one of the few old school pastry shops to survive in central Rome. Its maritozzi, bavaresi, crostate (jam tarts) and torte di fragoline (cake with chantilly cream + wild strawberries) are made with recipes as old as the shop's throwback interior design. Regoli doesn't serve beverages or have seating, so order some pastries to take away and enjoy them on the benches in nearby Piazza Vittorio.
