Yum! Worth a visit!

Stopped in for a snack and a coffee one afternoon and came back in the morning for breakfast. Italian coffee and french pastries! Took some macaroons to go as we had heard they were tasty and they were the best we've ever had. Their coffee is excellent as well.

Great a la francaise pastry and Illy coffee! Came back many times and always found another treat... The quiche variety is very nice as well.

Cafe Poupon is a great addition to the neighborhood. The lunch offerings are excellent and varied, with weekend specials. The highlights are the pastries, which Patisserie Poupon (Jonestown) has been known for. The season specials in particular are good: Buch de Noel at Christmas, rose macaron at Valentines, etc. Although my favorite is the kouign amann, all of the pastries... More

Cafe Poupon added its Charles Street location about a year ago and it is a winner. The location is fabulous and the decor is classic French Bistro - elegant and comfortable. The pastries and cakes are incredibly delicious and beautiful, you can't go wrong with any of them. Lunch is soups, salads (I love the Nicoise, the Crudite and the... More

I picked up some macarons from here after reading rave reviews and I was not disappointed. Definitely will be one of my go-to spots for special treats!! The macarons were light and flavorful - just as they should be!! Also tried a caramel napoleon and was very happy. Highly recommended!!

A recent addition to Charles St., Cafe Poupon offers a wonderful selection of French baked goods and cafe items. I had a bagette, and it was wonderfully crunchy, and I bought a couple of croissants which were wonderfully buttery. Their seeting capacity is limited and I wonder how they're doing. They have a location on Baltimore St. which only sells... More

Adorable French bakery and brunch place on North Charles. Quaint tables, funny posters and pleasant atmosphere. And that's apart from the top-quality baked good.

The limited lunch menu at this cafe is perfect because you want yo save room for dessert. Or just go and have two desserts. This outpost of the Patisserie Poupon is a great addition to midtown.it is a casual order at the register and either take it with you or eat there. We had a light salad and quiche lunch,... More

I am so glad Cafe Poupon opened near my office. This is now my go-to lunch spot when I do not make my own lunch. I've had the turkey baguette and the traditional croissant (which I've also had the pleasure of enjoying at the original location - Patisserie Poupon.) The baguettes are crusty, the cheese is creamy, the dijon mustard... More
