12. Pain au chocolat
I'll be brief. Hands down the best breakfast in Paris -- flaky, buttery pastry with a chocolate inside that's just this side of melted. Now available for about a euro (perhaps a bit more) at your neighborhood boulangerie. Get them fresh and warm or skip them altogether. The one you buy after 11 a.m. is certainly not worth the calories. In the morning with strong coffee, simply a revelation.
