“Magnifique”
Reviewed November 21, 2011

Best croissant ever.

But try everything else that is on sale.

Don't make the mistake I did of keeping it overnight, its best fresh.

Well worth a trip even though it might be a slight distance away from any RER or Metro station.

“You wouldnt believe it”
Reviewed May 28, 2010

After reading reviews of Poilane we went to look at it after we had dined at an excellent nearby local restaurant (L' Insouciant ). I'd read that it was a great boulangerie/patisserie that was also a cafe. It was late at night and closed. what astounded us was that there was a large sheaf of bread in the window - with a live mouse crawling slowly over it. Didn't go back !

“Fabulous bakery and gorgeous cafe beside it”
Reviewed September 11, 2009

Fab bakery - gorgeous big sourdough loaves. Beautiful shop - so French! Friendly service. Cusine de Bar next door is beautiful and serves 'Tartines' with various toppings made from the Poilane bread. Really lovely and perfect for an 'on-the-go' lunch in Paris.
