Wichita’s has itself a new French-inspired bakery and restaurant with the arrival of Paris Baguette. The chain, that started in South Korea, has made its way to the great city of Wichita, KS. They celebrated their grand opening on Thursday to long lines of diners with trays of stacked pastries in hand. Let’s take a look.
9780 E 21st St. N, Wichita, KS 67206
Open Daily: 6am – 11:30pm
Upon walking in to Paris Baguette, the first thing you’ll want to do is grab a tray (or box), tongs and wax paper.
From there, you can roam the aisles and grab different pastries and breads. On opening day, the cases started to become bare, but the staff was working their tails off to fill them up as fast as they could.
By the counter, they also had gourmet sandwiches and cakes you could purchase by the slice or whole.
Another section had grab & go sandwiches, cold pastries and beverages.
Once you grabbed what you wanted, you made your way to the counter to pay. FYI, the counter is also where you order your sandwiches and cake along with coffees, teas and other drinks.
Here’s a look at our haul, I forgot to take a picture of all the pastries we picked up. Forgive me, my mind was too focused on eating.
Megan and I split a Turkey Mozzarella Panino because we wanted to save room for all the pastries and desserts we ordered. The panino came with turkey, Dijon mayo, onion marmalade, fresh mozzarella, shaved Parmesan, arugula, and black pepper. This panino was a thing of beauty. In all my years taking Megan to dine with me, I’ve never heard her use profanity to describe a sandwich until now. “Damn, that’s a good sandwich” she blurted halfway into eating. It was true, though, the panino was excellent. We loved the touch of Dijon mayo and onion marmalade, which gave it a subtle sweetness that stuck out. There was plenty of turkey to go around to give the sandwich a lot of substance, and the ooey mozzarella rounded it all out.
And if you’re big into pastries and desserts, you can’t go wrong with Paris Baguette. The first cake slice we started off with was the mango one, and the frosting and coconut shavings were delicious.
We thoroughly enjoyed what we had, and already can’t wait to go back.
