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.
It was a tad sweet but had a good chocolate flavor.
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.
This tart tasted stale. I think it was supposed to be a pistachio raspberry tart. It just had an off taste.
