Try to arrive mid-afternoon when the apple turnovers are fresh out of the oven. All the regular gorgeous Poilâne sourdough breads, too.

Love this quaint Parisian bakery where their small storefront allows a buzz with eager shoppers in for their "Poilane Fix". Ours is the Rye Raisin Buns... nothing compares.

Thanks to Martha Stewart for letting us on to this shop all those years ago.

Highly recommend.

Poilane makes a legendary sourdough bread. While its Poilâne's sourdough is good, I would prefer a baguette any day. What I love about Poilane are its punitions (butter cookies), which are available from light to dark baking. The dark ones are excellent.

I followed google maps to get here and was looking forward to a hot croissant and coffee.

The coffee was delicious but the croissant I didn't enjoy whatsoever. I took it with me and didn't finish it.

There are definitely hit and miss croissant places in Paris.

It seems that establishments either make them traditionally, which is when they're flaky, buttery and with layers and delicious or they're fat, stodgy, without layers and less butter and awful.

Our hotel in Paris is a short walk to Poilane. Every day we first stop for coffee then head to Poilane for warm croissants and pain au chocolate. The croissants are like eating flaky butter. They are so delicious.

They are known for their rustic large loaves of bread. This time - since it was close to Thanksgiving - they had loaves of bread on which was superimposed a turkey sculpted from bread and the greeting "Happy Thanksgiving." The bread was a work of art. We always get lots of bags of their butter cookies - punitions - to bring home with us.
