We stopped here as soon as we arrived in St Germain area for a quick croissant and my partner enjoyed an apple tart. Both were buttery and delicious and we will revisit if In Paris again.

I had the best cafe crème on my visit here. Maybe because I like a thicker crème, but it was the only place that met my expectations. I had the œuf de cocotte and it was ok.

Excellent. Best croissants I’ve ever had. The coffee was great too. I would definitely recommend this place if you’re in that part of town.

Any trip to Paris is incomplete without a trip to Poilane. To enjoy a miche from Poilane is truly a gift. Looking for something to bring home- this is it!
