You'll LOVE Poilane! We got here in the morning and had breakfast next door first. By the time we worked our way around to get some baked goods, they had a line out the door. The ladies inside were working hard and fast to get people taken care of though, so the wait wasn't terribly long. Plus, the shop was so small and it was so hard to see everything that you really needed the time to scope out what you wanted. From that perspective, it was a little hectic and frantic, but the ladies did a great job of providing us with friendly, fast service once it was our turn.
Their sourdough bread is what you'd expect, hearty and fragrant but not quite the same as San Francisco's sourdough breads. We had a few of their baked goods like a pain au chocolat, an apple turnover and an apple danish. While they weren't the best I've ever had, they were still all quite good.
I would definitely stop in here again when in Paris.
