Paris has no shortage of bakeries of all sorts, from plain breads to fine pastries but Poilane stands above them all (or at least at the top of a short list). Its breads are the perfect combination of chewy and crisp and one almost feels...More
I have stopped by Poilane at least once during most of my regular trips to Paris, hoping that I will eventually buy a bread, tart or some baked goodie that holds a wow factor. That hasn't happened yet. Everything I've tried is certainly OK but...More
This place had rave reviews and was billed as one of the best bakeries in a place known for bakeries. Several desserts had fruit flies buzzing around them, which possibly coloured my view of the place. The coffee was ok but considering the reviews, it...More
Perfect Apple Tart, flaky and yummy even on the next day. Plain croissant is also good, although I had better ones from small boulangerie around 1st Arrondissement. Overall, this is a known bakery and decent place...we’ll be back!
Of course their bread is wonderful, but their punitions (butter cookies) show just how thoughtful they are of their customers: they come in a range from dark to light depending on how long they've been baked. Like them dark and well baked? Voila ! Like...More
Came here thanks to TA’s reviews. Had a coffee and a sourdough with chocolate. As I was alone, this was too much! Should have ordered something else. The waiter was actually rather brash and I didn’t feel welcome. When I went to the bakery I...More
A 3rd generation bakery doing sourdough right! We make a pilgrimage of sorts to this tiny shop every time we visit Paris for the Rye Raisin buns & Sourdough.
The taste is amazing and different than anything I have tasted elsewhere.
And consistent, same taste...More
We were told to go to Poilane by the owner of a Colorado French Bakery and Patisserie. He worked in Paris for several years and I believe he worked at Poilane some time ago. It is not a very big place on a quiet street...More
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighbourhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
