Fresh-baked butter crust apple tarts and apple turnovers from Poilâne, tucked away down a small side-street at 8 rue du Cherche Midi, is a must-do for my friends visiting Paris.
The closest Metro station is Saint-Sulpice on Metro Line 4.
Although most famous for their yeast-raised bread (pain au levain) with its signature script P on the large round loaves, I come just for the tartelettes aux pommes and chausson aux pommes, which seem always warm & fresh out of the oven.
For some mouth-watering photos, see David’s article on Poilâne for a virtual tour-de-taste.
