The bakery itself is on the bottom floor of the building. The floors above are the residence of Tom, Sabine, and Marinette, with Tom and Sabine's room, bathroom, living room and kitchen on the middle floors. Marinette's room is on the top floor. A door in the back of the bakery leads to the hall and staircase leading to their residence, while a door on the far side of its exterior leads to the same area. On top of the roof there is a balcony accessible from a trapdoor over Marinette's bed.
The bakery is based off of a real bakery called the Boulangerie du Moulin de la Galette.
In "Rogercop", Tom states that the bakery opens every day at seven o'clock in the morning.
The street address for the bakery is in honor of French comic writer and artist Marcel Gotlib.
The bakery is said to be located in the 21st arrondissement of Paris. However, Paris has only 20 arrondissements; the 21st is fictitious.
The words "boulangerie patisserie" are translated into English as "bakery confectionery". In France, a boulangerie is a shop that specializes in selling bread, whereas a patissere is a shop that specializes in selling pastries. Therefore, this bakery sells both bread and pastries.
However, this bakery also sells cakes as seen in the episode "Timebreaker".
Marinette designed the logo of the bakery.
The bakery is the ground floor of Marinette's house.
