I first read about Patisserie Poupon on Chowhound. A few people raved about their goodies. Someone even mentioned their Kouign-amann was the best she had. Since we were already at the Dupont Circle farmers market, we picked up a few things two separate times. Our experience was better the first time. Their Viennoiserie did not look good. It looked like what you find in most places.

Chocolate cake
It was a tad sweet but had a good chocolate flavor.

Gateau Breton
It was very rich, enough for two people to easily share it.

This must be the worst kouin amann I have ever had. Very very sweet and not as buttery as I like.

Raspberry Tart
This tart tasted stale. I think it was supposed to be a pistachio raspberry tart. It just had an off taste.
