As French citizen, we always try to sample and compare French bakeries throughout the world (and especially around North America). This place was recommended to us by the staff of the French Embassy in Washington DC. They told us that the owner (Mr. Poupon) had had this shop for forty years. They said he somewhat had adapted his creations to... More

Ordered five dozen miniatures from this place for take-out along with a few other things. Called two hours ahead to make sure they were ready, they said the order was ready. Showed up to pick up the order -- they couldn't find the miniatures. "We must have given it to someone else." Girl at checkout says, "don't look at me,... More

My son and I visit Patisserie Poupon almost every Sunday morning for breakfast before walking around Georgetown. The croissants and pastries are always fresh and the coffee/cappuccino hits the spot. Even when there are crowds later in the morning, you can still get in and out fairly quickly.

Right on Wisconsin Avenue and easy to find this small informal restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating, soups, quiches, pastries and many types of sandwiches, and a coffee bar in the rear serving all the beverages hot and cold. Great looking baguette sandwiches, and my asparagus quiche was delicious. Good place also to buy breads and pastries/desserts to carry out... More

Poupon delivers the same high quality, day in day out, year in year out! We have visited Poupon for over 9 (10?) years and it is just totally, absolutely, solid good quality. Today there was a small jazz band playing on the street where also seating was available for Poupon customers. Perfect espresso and 'to die for' sweet treats, as... More

Excellent cakes and pastries, excellent sandwiches and quiches. We make a stop every time we visit Georgetown. Great cafe, a bit pricy but worth it.

Perhaps because it was Sunday afternoon, perhaps because they were tired, but it was not a good visit. The wait was long, they shuttled us between the coffee counter, the cashier and the pastries counter, it was too hot inside and there were too few pastries available for a place where pastries are supposed to be the main fare. **

This is the kind of place I dream of living above, so I can wake up to the smells of coffee and baked goods! If you live above this place, contact me immediately so I can take over your lease...

A very good start into a day of touristic activities should be at Poupon's - if you stay in Georgetown... A very good coffee (Lilly) combined with delicious food is the basis for exploring tours in Washington City.

Pass up the trendy bakeries and Georgetown and walk tr extra mile to reach this authentic patisserie on Wisconsin. Croissants, madeleines, mini palmiers and even the Breton speciality kouign amann are all available (and fabulous). One of the best bakeries I've been to in a long time.
